For Tyrese Gibson, toys are child’s play.
The “Fast and Furious” star upped the ante in holiday gift-giving by purchasing his 8-year-old daughter her very own island, he told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday.
“What’s the most lavish or over-the-top gift you’ve given or received?” the reporter asked.
Tyrese Gibson and his daughter, Shayla Somer Gibson, attend the American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Nov. 22 in Los Angeles, Calif.
“Well, I just bought my daughter an island,” replied the R&B singer. “She knows all about it, and the island is called Love Island.”
He wouldn’t specify its location, but said he would reveal more details on his Facebook page soon.
Shayla Somer Gibson, Gibson’s daughter with his ex-wife, Norma, accompanied her dad to the American Music Awards last month and presented an award with actor Wilmer Valderrama — but was absent from Thursday’s red carpet since it was a “school night,” Gibson said.
“My daughter gets me right every time, man,” he said. “I’m missing her tonight.”
Gibson landed “50-50 joint and legal custody” of Shayla, he told the Daily News in March — a win that led him to shelve his music career.
“This is going to be my last solo album,” he said ahead of the release of his sixth studio album, “Black Rose.”
“I hate to disappoint my fans, but daddy duties is real for me on a very personal level.”
