It has been reported that singer and actor Tyrese Gibson is facing a lawsuit close to $85,000. 

According to reports, a woman named Cynthia Banks who wrote a book about Tyrese mother, Priscilla, is suing the "Fast & Furious" star for $83k. Banks accused Gibson of ruining her reputation by trashing her name publicly after the book was written.

Banks said that she agreed to write a book about Pricilla's struggle with alcohol for 27 years and all the children cooperated except Tyrese.

Previously, Banks filed a lawsuit against Gibson in Texas. She said since the actor didn't respond to the lawsuit she was awarded $75 by the judge. Banks recently filed a second lawsuit in California. She is now seeking $83k for interest charges.

According to Tyrese, his mother has been sober for the past seven years and she has the support of her family beside her. He said that he didn't know anything about a lawsuit from Banks. However, he accuses the author of taking advantage of his mother while she was in rehab. He said Banks bamboozled his mother while she was at a low point in her life.
