Tyrese Gibson owes more than $83K to a woman who claims he ruined her life after she wrote a book about his mom … but Tyrese says the author is the one who’s guilty of taking advantage of his mother.
Cynthia Banks claims she befriended Tyrese’s mom Priscilla a few years back … and agreed to write a book about Priscilla’s 27-year struggle with alcoholism. Banks says the Gibson children cooperated with her on the book — except Tyrese, who publicly trashed the author and ruined her reputation.
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.
