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.

Maybe she realized that ruining his career....would lessen the type of life he would be able to provide for their unborn child.......

It is not uncommon for women to take back a man after they have been abused.....isn't that shameful????

This story is very fishy. If false allegations were filed, then why wait five days to set the record straight? (I am going off the dates from TMZ's postings). Where did the "story" come from that he punched her? I highly doubt officials would make that up. Saying all that, it sounds to me like he did hit her and than pulled the old: oh baby I'm so sorry, I love you, think about the baby, I'll never do it agian bull crap. That and for some money does buy happiness and quiteness (I know that's not a word but you get the point).

Curiosity Killed the KAT ;-)    

Latoya you are so ignorant...

That being said, I find it hard to believe that Tyrese didn't hit his pregnant girlfirend. Like another poster said what eventually transpired was Tyrese apologized and promised not to do it again, and the stupid girlfriend forgave him because not only does she "LOVE" him, she doesn't want to miss out on what money can buy her...

Thing is, I distinctly remember Tyrese having a similar "domestic" issue with one of his ex girlfriends.

And you don't call the cops if its just "emotional stress". You call the cops when you fear for your safety. You want a mediator, call your friend or your mama,lol.

Anytime the cops see a black man fighting a white girl, he or both or getting hauled off to jail.(remember Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman). Obviously she's very in love with him and they have a tumultuos relationship with issues. But at the end of the day, it's their relationship. Who are we too judge,right:)

LET HIM LIVE... FIRST OF ALL CHICKS LIKE HER GET INSECURE AND GET ALL UP IN DUDES FACE, POINTING THEIR FINGERS IN THEIR FACES, PUSHING, AND GRABBING AT THEM UNTIL THEY GET JUST WHAT THEY WANT ... THEN WHEN AND IF THEY DO GET IT THEY WANT TO CALL 911, AND WHEN THEY FINALLY DO COME THEY WANT TO CHANGE THEIR MINDS... IT'S CALLED " WANTING ATTENTION " " AND "JEALOUSY" AND THE ONLY REASON THEY BLEW IT UP LIKE THIS IS BECAUSE HOMEBOY IS IN THE BIZ.

Thank you for the info.
I asked because I hadn't seen any pictures of this woman and was wondering if she was white, or not. Not, because "...black girl's don't call 9-11" but because Black Women don't stand around for no beatdown from some punk ass Nig*ger.
