Following abuse claims, Tyrese Gibson is now under investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services after his ex-wife said he spanked his 10-year-old daughter so hard she had trouble sitting.

According to a report from TMZ, Norma Gibson, Tyrese's ex-wife, is trying to get a permanent restraining order which would prohibit the actor from physically disciplining their child. Norma is also seeking full physical and legal custody of the child.

Norma claims Tyrese "beat" their daughter between 12 and 16 times, although Tyrese says he only hit the girl on her butt once. The website claims Tyrese believes Norma is bitter after he married someone else and is making the claims up as revenge.

A lawyer for the Fast and Furious actor called Norma "a lying piece of s---" and said Tyrese was "devastated" by the claims. "He's a good guy and I will prove that," said lawyer Terry Levich Ross.
