Actor/singer Tyrese Gibson is being sued for $83k by author Cynthia Banks who says Gibson ruined her life after she wrote a book about his mom Priscilla 27-year struggle with alcoholism.
Tyrese says the author took advantage of his mother. He say Cynthia Banks befriended his mother Priscilla and agreed to write the book. Banks says Tyrese did not cooperated with her on the book and publicly trashed her and ruined her reputation.
TMZ is reporting:
Banks filed a lawsuit against him in Texas, where she lived … but when he failed to respond to the suit, a judge awarded her $75K.
Banks says Tyrese never paid — so now she’s coming after him in California. She’s asking an L.A. judge to order him to fork over the money, which has ballooned to $83K due to interest charges.
Tyrese says he had no idea Banks had filed a lawsuit against him. He say Bank “bamboozled” his mother at a low point in her life. He told TMZ, “I did what I had to do to protect my mother from this woman who took advantage of her while she was in rehab.”
