Grammy-nominated R&B singer and actor Tyrese Gibson is being investigated by Los Angeles police after being accused of punching his pregnant girlfriend twice Thursday, officials said.
According to the police, Gibson, 28, was involved in an early morning domestic dispute with his live-in girlfriend, who is three months pregnant. Her name was not released by authorities.
After the woman said Gibson hit her in the leg and arm, he drove away from the scene, police said. The woman was taken by paramedics to a nearby hospital and released, but showed no signs of visible injuries.
Police said the case is currently being investigated, but there has been no warrant issued for Gibson’s arrest.
Representatives for Gibson had no comment.
The one-time model, who usually goes by his first name Tyrese, broke into films with a starring role in director John Singleton’s 2001 drama “Baby Boy.” He next stars in the big-budget action film “Transformers,” to be released in July.
