Tyrese Gibson Engaged to Baby Mama, Not Brandy


Rumor has it that Tyrese Gibson is engaged to Brandy. Well, rumor has it wrong.

The R&B singer-actor is actually engaged to his girlfriend, the mother of his unborn child, report news sources.

The mix-up occurred when Gibson, 28, proposed to his real-life girlfriend Norma at singer Brandy's baby shower in Los Angeles on June 7.

"There's no truth to the rumors Tyrese proposed to Brandy," says Tyrese's rep Courtney Barnes. "He actually asked his girlfriend to marry him during the shower."

This is the same girlfriend that he had allegedly punched during her early stages of pregnancy. At the time, the woman's lawyer denied that his client was punched in the stomach by Tyrese and called the reports "distorted."

Tyrese is an R&B artist and model that transitioned into acting with John Singleton's "Baby Boy." His other big-screen credits include "2 Fast 2 Furious," "Flight of the Phoenix," "Four Brothers," "Annapolis" and the upcoming "Transformers," which will be released nationwide on Tuesday, July 3.
