star Tyrese Gibson
is releasing his first book How to Get Out of Your Own Way
, which is available April 7. Tyrese reveals all: how he survived his childhood in the Watts section of South Central Los Angeles, weight issues (who knew the former model grappled with his weight?), and his recent divorce.
The book is already getting a strong buzz. Rev Run
said, “How To Get Out of Your Own Way
is a triumph. Tyrese will shock and amaze you with how he overcame the odds and became a superstar. This star of the Transformers
sequel will show you how to transform your life in this amazingly candid book.”
Hollywood royalty Will Smith
said, "I've watched Tyrese for many years—I've watched him succeed; I've watched him fail; I've seen him as a beneficiary of serendipity, and I've watched him suffer at his own hand. And in the recent years, as we've become friends, I've witnessed Tyrese Gibson learn 'how to get out of his own way' as he wrestled his destiny from the fickle hands of fate.”
As a teaser, Tyrese
provided BET.com with exclusive footage of a day in his life and dishing on the new book. Check it out!
