: R&B singer Tyrese Gibson has a reputation for being a heartbreaker. But MediaTakeOut.com has learned that his latest moves are so reckless – they might get him banned from BET.
You see, for the last couple of months the R&B singer has been dating Rocsi (from 106 & Park) and BET correspondent Melyssa Ford at the same time. And according to people at the network, each of the former friends is prepared to fight for him.
Last week, during the annual hip hop summit at Howard University, the women nearly came to blows. Melyssa and Rocsi were both part of panel debating hip hop’s response to Hurrican Katrina. And almost as soon as the panel began, the two were at each other’s throats. One attendant tells MediaTakeOut.com, “They started off talking about Hurricane Katrina and then all of a sudden they were yelling at each other. And Rocsi was cursing like crazy … but it started to get serious when Melyssa called Rocsi a [B WORD].” The insider continued, “It was so embarrassing – there were professors there and everything. Poor Terrence J had to basically pull Rocsi to the side and calm her down. I swear it looked like something was about to pop off.”
But all the fighting may be for nothing. Tyrese is reportedly still together with his pregnant girlfriend. Earlier this year, MediaTakeOut.com reported that Tyrese and his girlfriend got into a fight when she confronted him about cheating. The police were called to break up the dispute, but Tyrese was never charged in the incident.
UPDATE: THIS MORNING, ON HER SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO SHOW, MELYSSA FORD DENIED BEING IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH TYRESE. SHE DID, HOWEVER, ADMIT TO HAVING A “HEATED ARGUMENT” WITH ROCSI.
