Tyrese Gibson Says Rihanna Case Is ‘Taking A Toll’ On Chris Brown


via MTV

In an interview with People.com, Tyrese Gibson spoke out in support of his friend Chris Brown, as well as Rihanna.

“Although he appears to be really strong through all of this, it’s really taking a toll on his spirit,” Gibson reportedly told the site on Sunday at the 2009 Ball Up Street Ball Tour in Los Angeles. “People like me and Puff [Diddy], we’re just trying to show him love and keep his spirits up while he’s going through all of the heat, and there are a lot people doing the same for Rihanna.”

Since news broke in February of the alleged altercation between Brown and Rihanna, the pair reportedly reunited — staying at Diddy’s Miami home — but are now reportedly taking a break. Yet conversation around the incident has continued to rage, and was even the subject of a special episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” earlier this month and a disturbing public service announcement from the teen organization DoSomething.org.

Gibson also pointed out that the two are still quite young, which makes the situation even more difficult. “And a lot of people forget that he’s 19, she’s only 21.

“It’s really hard for him to focus right now on his music, even though he really wants to,” Gibson continued. “At the end of the day, I’m not trying to justify it because wrong is wrong, but unfortunately, us as entertainers, we have to grow up onstage with a lot of people looking at us.”

  1. i feel that he had learned from this and now move on. To me it seems that the blame is all on Chris. Rhianna is not as innocent as she wants people to think she.ok she got her ass kick and then she went back next she will get the boot
