Ever wondered how Tyrese Gibson rose to stardom? Journeys are never easy. Some journeys have many hurdles, several adventures, a few mishaps and if you’re lucky – a little success. The journey of Tyrese Darnell Gibson has all of that and more. Many American superstars had humble beginnings. Many grew up in dangerous neighborhoods and had parents who were just short of Ward and June Cleaver. Most of those celebrities somehow received a big break along the line and became superstars. Many share the typical American-celebrity rags-to-riches story. Gibson is no different in that he, too, grew up in a crime-riddled neighborhood, was raised by a single mother battling alcoholism and lived in a tiny house with many other siblings in a small area of Los Angeles, California. However, not all stars can say they produced multiple award-winning albums, were the host of several TV shows, starred in dozens of feature films, wrote two books and released the first-ever digital comic book series.
