Tyrese is mourning the loss of his sister, Shonta Gibson, who passed away recently from unknown causes.
“I can’t believe I am about to post these 3 letters again… RIP to my beloved Angel of a big sister Shonta Gibson,” he wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday.
“My heart is so heavy posting this because sadly, I’ve lost so many people over the years in this very short window of time.”
“I’m really in a place where I’m just numb and I’ve found that I’ve become even more selfless and more concerned about everyone else and their needs over mines.”
Tyrese quoted his 2 nieces, Star and Tanisha, “hearing them say the words ‘We didn’t just lose our mother, we lost our best friend, our biggest inspiration and day to day support system’ who raised them BOTH into foot soldiers for Christ and they’ve both became wives and mothers themselves.”
The 44-year-old singer said he has over 20 nieces and nephews “and I couldn’t be more proud of my family working so hard everyday to be the best versions of themselves and finding their own way.”
