Press week continues for Tyrese Gibson and his daughter Shayla. The FURIOUS 7 star was recently photographed while backstage at a promotional event. Shay snuggled up close to her father as Tyrese waited patiently to be presented to fans.
The little one is currently in the process of building her father’s publishing company. “The name of my publishing company is called Gibson and Gibson Publishing, and she’s the other Gibson,” shares Tyrese. The actor tells media that many of the books will focus on bullying and other social issues. “She just really brought me up to speed on a lot of things that she feels like her friends would love to read about, so we wrote six books together and I’m getting all of the artwork done on it now.”
In addition to going into business with her father, Shayla is also exhibiting maturity at home. “[She sings and] she reads to herself every night — I don’t have to read to her anymore,” says Gibson of his daughter’s bedtime routine. “I’m just sitting there basically holding the book,” adds the actor.
Shayla is Tyrese’s only child with ex-wife Norma Mitchell. She will celebrate her eighth birthday in July.
