Girlfriend Of Tyrese Gibson Denies Assault, Attorney Explains Incident

An attorney

for the girlfriend of Tyrese Gibson has come forward to debunk reports that actor/singer/rapper

assaulted his pregnant girlfriend last week. Gibson

and his girlfriend, who is 11 weeks pregnant, argued at their home in Los Angeles

last Thursday (Jan. 4), which resulted in the woman placing an emergency call

to 911. Initial

reports stated that Gibson was being investigated for striking the woman in the

arms and thigh before fleeing the scene. "Reports

Tyrese punched my client -- his girlfriend -- in the arm, thigh or anywhere else

are false," said Paul Berra ESQ., the unidentified woman's attorney. "It

istrue, 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."Berra

said that Gibson's girlfriend was "saddened" that the incident was being

so distorted. "Mr.

Gibson and his girlfriend are very much still in love, together and excited about

their expectant child," Berra said.
