Listen to Tyrese on iHeartRadio

(TMZ) - Tyrese and his baby mama got into it last night over their kid ... and this time cops got involved, reports TMZ.

Tyrese went to Norma Gibson's home in North Hollywood Tuesday night to pick up their 6-year-old daughter. Sources tell TMZ Norma did not want to hand the kid over because she was sick.

TMZ reports, before he got there Norma called police because she felt the custody order did not require her to turn the kid over and she needed cops to look at the document.  LAPD officers arrived and Tyrese showed up as well.

Cops talked to Tyrese and left ... and so did Tyrese -- without the kid.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ there was no disturbance of the peace ... no police report was taken as far as they were concerned it's case closed.

But it's not case closed for Tyrese. Sources connected to the actor tell TMZ ...  he's going to court to ask a judge to hold Norma in contempt and throw her in jail for violating the custody order. He does not believe his child was sick ... he thinks it's all just revenge.
