Tyrese Says He ‘Struggled Mentally and Emotionally’ Over Insults About His Dark Skin


Talented actor and singer Tyrese Gibson says that for years he has struggled with his self-confidence because he was teased about his dark skin.  On TV One’s ‘Uncensored‘ says that he struggled mentally and emotionally for years over how experiences with colorism and constant insults and criticism had a big impact on the man he is today.

In one clip Tyrese says:

 “I had never felt a piece of handsome. I had never felt a piece of being cute. I had never heard compliments throughout my childhood. I never got any attention from the ladies.”

Unfortunately, there are many who can relate to Tyrese’s story, but he has had the last laugh with a stellar singing and acting career that shows no sign of letting up.
