Did Tyrese Gibson’s girlfriend earlier like Paul Walker?
In the Instagram live session, the couple Tyrese Gibson and Zelie Timothy were asked about their first meet. Gibson told the fans that he sled into the DMs of the influencer to connect with her. Timothy added that the Four Brothers actor was not her type at all and shared that she was interested in the late actor Paul Walker.
“My type was actually Paul Walker. Rest in peace. But [Tyrese] wasn’t my type at all. And my type is not ‘white.’ I’m just saying I was more interested in Paul.”
The Fast and Furious actor was slightly upset on hearing her confession and told his girlfriend to not touch him. However, the influencer was enjoying teasing the actor and said,
“Even when I met [Tyrese], I was like, ‘Eh, he’s kind of old,’” she continued. “I just like his smile. It’s pretty cool. His personality … His personality was OK.”
Tyrese Gibson was visibly upset by her words and decided to get off the live session.

The influencer shared in the live session that she found Gibson’s personality average and was more interested in Paul Walker earlier. Gibson was quite offended and said,
“This went really bad. This just went really bad really fast. I’m getting off Live.”
Zelie Timothy further added that Gibson did not understand the Instagram modeling profession and he always talks down on Insta models.
Gibson was very upset by the allegations and said,
“So you wanted the homie; you didn’t want me. You said I’m old.”
The influencer explained to him that she never said she wanted the homie. She just said he was cuter and, Gibson already knows she was not his type. She consoled him and said that they are together now and it is an actual love story, which is crazy.
For the unversed, Tyrese Gibson and Paul Walker were best buddies for almost a decade. They appeared in several Fast and Furious movies together. Walker passed away in 2013 when he crashed his high-speed car, which immediately caught fire. The actor was pronounced dead on the spot.
