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.
