Tyrese's Girlfriend: Fight Was "Distorted"

1/9/2007 4:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The attorney representing the girlfriend of singer/actor Tyrese Gibson has issued a statement in response to an altercation that allegedly occurred at a Los Angeles home last Thursday night.

The woman's attorney tells TMZ, "Reports that Tyrese punched my client -- his girlfriend -- in the arm, thigh or anywhere else are false. It is true, Mr. Gibson and his girlfriend had been arguing. She became very emotional and distressed during the argument and called 911 in an attempt to get a mediator. Mr. Gibson, frustrated, left the home. My client, Mr. Gibson's girlfriend, who is 11 weeks pregnant, then became more upset and began throwing up. When the paramedics arrived, concerned about the baby, they took her to the hospital. Fortunately, she was fine. Once at the hospital, she was asked by a nurse whether she had been assaulted. She said no. She was then asked what her pain level was on a scale of zero to ten. She said zero. She then discharged herself. Mr. Gibson and his girlfriend are very much still in love, together and excited about their expectant child. She is quite saddened that this event was so distorted."

Police sources tell TMZ they are "interested" in speaking to Tyrese about the incident.

No charges have been filed.

My brother is a police officer. They hate being called in to "mediate" domestic fights. It is also considered to be among the most dangerous of calls as the combatants just want a referee and often turn on the officer if an arrest is attempted. Tyrese did the right thing in leaving the house if indeed that is what happened.

Do emergency services provide 'mediators'? Anytime I've ever called 911, they haven't provided me with that option.

People do strange things when their girlfriends are pregnant. As a teenager, Andy Kaufman went to Disneyland as his baby daughter was born. This is when his parents, along with the girls parents, gave the baby up for adoption. Many years later, as the grown child began seeking out her biological parents, Andy was able to parlay this into a guilt scenario on his mother and father. It was the power of this guilt that allowed him to get his father to do what he did at Nathan McCoy's deathbed.

This does sound kinda hookey. you should hire a counsler not the police at 5 30 in the morning. i don't care if either of then are white, black or anything else. if he put his hands on her he should be under the jail. if she allows it because she think his money will leave with him then she a dummy.

A MAN WILL DO WHAT YOU ALLOW HIM TO.

IF IT WASN'T ALL THAT THEN WHY YOU CALL THE POLICE?

IF HE WAS ALL THAT WHY DID HE LEAVE AFTER HE FOUND OUT YOU CALLED THE POLICE IF NOTHING HAPPENED.

IF NOTHING HAPPENED THEN WHY HASN'T HE STILL NOT WENT AND TALKED TO POLICE.

IF NOTHING HAPPENED WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GET A LAWYER TO MAKE A STATEMENT THAT " NOTHING HAPPENED"

Looks like Myron Kempelstein, Amy Sedaris' ex-husband, is back in business again after that cable tv scandal. Can't keep a good man down.

Seriously    

I agree with CMYMAN. It's BS.
Why call the cops, make a big deal and then take it back?
Did Ty tell you he'd really mess you up if you continued with it?
Why stay with someone when you may be in danger?
Some women need to get some self esteem and get the xxxk out
of relationships that don't work. Money isn't everything.
