Tyrese Responds to Criticism Regarding His New Wife

Tyrese’s camp reached out to TMZ to set the record straight on his new wife.

And not only did he brag about her credentials and successful career but he broke down her racial background too.

TMZ writes:

A source close to the couple tells us the missus’ name is Samantha Lee — a New Jersey native who got a Master’s degree in social work at the University of Georgia. We’re told she’s put her education to work on serious issues — fighting sex and human trafficking and counseling for inmates. She’s also handled cases for the Division of Family and Children Services in GA.

She’s accomplished and well-paid — we’re told Samantha lives comfortably on a hefty salary.

Sources close to the couple — who secretly tied the knot on Valentine’s Day — say they met after Tyrese posted an open letter in 2015 to his “wife of the future.” Samantha filled that slot after they met through mutual friends.

Haters went after Tyrese for referring to Samantha as his “black queen.” Not that it matters, but her heritage is Ecuadorian, Jamaican … and African-American.

  1. People really need to stop it with this he married a white girl or she married a white man. Let people marry whomever they fall in love with even if it is a Purple Man or a Green Girl. Who cares anyway. I hope he’s happy and I hope she’s happy and live in matrimony forever.

  2. He can marry who he wants but stop fronting. She’s not black. Her daddy is white and her mama is a mulatto Hispanic. Family photos have already surfaced. Stop trying to erase black women with you wish black women looked like.Part of something has never equalled whole!

    1. Oh and if she worked for DFACs in Georgia she never made six figures! They don’t pay! Tea has already been spilled that Black Ty made up a “foundation” for her to work for and have her own salary. I can’t stand this fool and I’m actually happy he did NOT marry black.

  3. I don’t think too many Sistas are checking for or care about what Tyrese is doing. But he clowned himself trying to big up his wife like aint no other women out here can compare(race and ethnicity excluded). He act like he trying make her more likeable or something. He the one that cares, not us….

  4. LOL!!!! Baby listen…. it’s more comical to me that these people are trying to spruce up her career and financial status. Working for DFCS, ain’t nothing hefty about her salary lol.

  5. Lots of lies and damage control. Why is Tyrese trying so hard to make her out to be something she’s not?

  6. I am so tired of black men like him trying to make black women seem bitter. We don’t even want you Tyrese because you’ve proven how illiterate and undesirable you are with your tweets. Enjoy your new wife and leave us out of it.
