I report on things here that I know a lot about. Usually, I know more than I am at liberty to say about the things I post about here. I’d like to keep my sources and at times telling you everything would expose them so I can’t do that.
This is not that sort of situation. This time I am asking you guys to explain things to me. I am far from an expert on Tyrese. But it’s impossible to avoid his child custody battle. He’s doing the most. His ex, Norma has accused him of abusing their daughter and he has lost visitation until that situation can be looked into. Apparently, CPS has closed the case and found no abuse on his part according to multiple sites. But while they were investigating, he was on monitored visitation for two months and rarely say his daughter. During that time he sent a plane with a banner over her school professing his love for her. That’s pretty creepy. And also highly embarrassing for any child.
The night before his latest court date, that was today, he was on the social media having some sort of emotional breakdown and ranting about real fathers and liars. And yet, instead of coming to court, he was in London practicing yoga. I am not making this up. One day he is sobbing about visitation, the next he is not going to court to fight in person for his parental rights but sending in his lawyers instead. He actually was given more monitored (because he is acting crazy A F ) but the visitation was granted for THIS WEEKEND. Which is interesting because as I mentioned, he’s in London practicing yoga and Instagraming about “real fathers” and “father’s rights.”
The other thing, and really the reason for this post is, the judge ruled that neither parent could post photos of their child on social media. I don’t see how that is legal. Look, I am the most anti photo person in the world. I left my last job because my principal was insisting that I put a photo in the hallway of myself with some sort of bio. At my previous school in the same county they were very accommodating to my request not to have my name or photo on the Internet as I had a bit of a stalker I had moved away from and didn’t want him knowing where I worked. But when I requested a transfer to another school, that principal was insistent that I provide a photo. I made it clear I would quit my job before that happened because my image is mine to share or not share on my terms. I eventually made good on my threat when the principal tried to put up a photo of me without my permission.
I had also gotten into trouble at my previous job for having my Spanish interpreter explain the photo release in English they were signing to allow their children’s image to be posted to the Internet. I also made sure they knew they did not have to agree to the agreement if they did not want to. The majority of my parents opted not to sign. My principal at that school said it was irresponsible of me to discourage my parents from signing the release. I did not discourage them. I simply told them it was up to them to decide and was not required.
So I am really surprised that a judge could rule as he apparently did today saying that neither parent can post photos of their daughter on social media. How is that legal? In fact all photos of her since September first have to come down. I gave my own lengthy background information to make it clear I don’t think anyone should put their photos on social media. I have literally zero photos of myself online. I believe it is a terrible idea to put photos of your children online. That’s my stance. Yours is probably different.
But it seems really wrong to me for a judge to take away parental rights regarding posting photos of their own child. I do not understand this ruling. I thought it might be an interesting discussion topic for this weekend. I know I have several lawyers who post here. What do you think of this judge’s ruling? I find it to be a serious over reach. I’m not sure in this day and age that a prevailing opinion would be that publishing your child’s photo online is detrimental to the child or puts them in danger. That is my belief, but I don’t see how my opinion or a judges opinion can override the rights of the parents.
What are your thoughts? Is Tyrese stable? Is the judge right?
