Tyrese is busy promoting his new studio album, so he’s been giving lots of interviews and sharing a few details of his personal life.
The R&B singer had a nasty divorce from his ex-wife Norma Mitchell, but now he claims the marriage wasn’t real and they only tied the knot so Norma could get her green card.
He tells Angie Martinez of Power 105:
“That marriage, was a marriage, but it wasn’t really a marriage…She’s from London and we had a baby on the way. When immigration is calling you gotta do what you gotta to do…I did it to keep her in the country.”
In related news, Tyrese’s latest studio album.,”Black Rose,” is projected to sell around 70,000 copies in the first week.
