Tyrese recorded a video of himself bawling over the fight with his ex-wife to see his daughter ... but she's claiming his outburst was nothing more than a calculated manipulation.
Norma Gibson's attorney, Aleen Khanjian, tell The Blast Tyrese's, "Emotional outburst this morning is nothing more than a means of misleading and manipulating fans."
Tyrese posted the video Wednesday morning begging Norma to drop the restraining order against him, and that his pleas to see his daughter are going unanswered.
Norma's team tells us Tyrese "has a court ordered, professionally-monitored, dinner with his daughter tonight. He's known this since Monday."
As we previously reported, Tyrese and Norma were close to a settlement, but the "Fast and the Furious" actor put a kibosh on the deal when Norma stipulated that he would have to admit wrongdoing.
