Tyrese Gibson’s girlfriend Zelie Timothy admitted she was “more interested” in Paul Walker.
The influencer, 27, declared on an Instagram live that Tyrese’s late Fast & Furious co-star Paul was more her type.
Paul, 40, and his friend Roger Rodas, 38, were killed on November 30, 2013 when Roger lost control of the Porsche Carrera GT they were riding in and crashed into a tree.
Zelie told her 571k followers: ‘My guy was actually Paul Walker. May he rest in peace. But (Tyrese) was not my type at all. And my type is not ‘white’. I’m just saying I was more interested in Paul.
“Even when I first met (Tyrese), I thought, ‘Hey, he’s a little old.’ I just like his smile. He’s great. His personality…Her personality was right.’

Tyrese then jumped in and said, ‘This went very wrong. This just went very wrong, very fast. I go down live. So you wanted the homie; Didn’t you love me?
He added: ‘You said I’m old.’
And the model and influencer replied: “I never said that I loved the homie, I just said that he was cuter.
You already know all this. I wasn’t your type either. So relax. And, yeah, now we’re here, and it’s a true love story, kind of crazy.
The couple first went public with their romance in March 2021 after his divorce from Samantha Lee.
At the beginning of the month, the couple celebrated their second anniversary.
He shared a screenshot of his beloved lock screen photo and wrote: “Happy anniversary to a true God send… I love and appreciate you…
“The most patient, kind, loving and understanding woman most could imagine, it’s never easy to build a relationship with someone who’s just gotten out of another situation.”
‘She was just out of something, and so was I… Most found themselves thinking you were a band-aid… You are… THE SEXIEST chocolate band-aid ever… 2 years ago today we said YES to drinking this unexpectedly beautiful journey through the ups and downs.
‘I just want you to know it over and over again in private and in public. I love and appreciate you and thank you for holding my hand and loving me through this journey…..
‘2 years and counting happy anniversary my love @zelietimothy your heart is GOLD!’

Still going strong: The couple first went public with their romance in March 2021 after his divorce from Samantha Lee
In July 2022, Tyrese took to Instagram with a series of passionate posts following the breakup with his on-and-off girlfriend.
In one of his lengthy captions, the Fast and Furious actor wrote: “I’m single right now and want y’all to have fun with @zelietimothy via DM.”
It began with a bizarre 16-second video of a small deer wrapped in a snake’s talons.
The musician wrote: ‘Stop trying to convince me that your daughter is not a SNAKE. I just want to be released from this strong devilish allure, the sexual seduction of a masterful manipulator who knows how to (convince everyone she’s not there to KILL YOU).’
The strange post continued: ‘Please God RELEASE ME – RELEASE ME FROM YOUR POISON RELEASE FROM YOUR STRONG SUPPORT RELEASE ME I BELONG TO THE KINGDOM…. I HAVE MUCH MORE WORK TO DO.’
The California-raised musical artist then stated that he wants to “get married and settle down,” adding that he would like to “really nestle in and embrace the COMFORTABLES of this MARRIED AND FAMILY LIFE.”
The one-time hitmaker continued: “I want to stay home and be the hard-working family man that I am.”
Amid the series of posts, Zelie also took to Instagram to indirectly address her ex’s tirade.

Taking over the app’s Stories feature, he wrote for his 530,000 followers to see: ‘You’re acting on emotions and NOT facts!
‘Hurt people hurt people and I’m the wrong one to hurt!’
It is not the first time that the couple has separated. In September 2021, Hot97 reported that the couple had broken up.
At the time, Gibson went online to post: ‘We had a lot of potential. We really did. I wish you the best, ending in a goo; endings are a good thing….. (link in bio) I will love you forever @zelietimothy Cheers to you!
