Actor Tyrese Gibson is facing a lawsuit over allegations of causing property damage to an Airbnb rental. The property manager claims that Tyrese made excessive alterations without permission, resulting in substantial damage. Tyrese, however, denies these allegations and argues that the changes were temporary and minor. The lawsuit seeks damages of over $25,000.
Allegations of Property Damage
According to Tracy Wolf, Tyrese signed a six-month lease for a luxurious five-bedroom estate in Woodland Hills, with a monthly rent of $20,000. Shortly after moving in, Tyrese reportedly began making alterations to the property without obtaining written consent from the owners. These alterations included altering electrical panels, installing electrical outlets that did not meet building code standards, painting a marble fireplace in a shiny gold metallic color, closing off doors and windows, and causing damage to the HVAC units.
In response to these allegations, Tyrese claims that the changes he made were not permanent and did not cause any significant damage to the property. He explains that he blocked off some doors and windows for privacy reasons and asserts that the materials he used were not attached to the existing structures of the home.
Failed Attempts to Remove Banana Trees
Tracy Wolf further alleges that Tyrese attempted to have the homeowner’s gardener remove 22 banana trees from the property. When the gardener refused, Tyrese reportedly tried to hire another company but was prevented from doing so by the property management team. The property manager also claims that Tyrese allowed a construction crew to drill holes in the home’s wrought iron gate and brand-new stucco exterior, causing additional damage.
Legal Action and Damages
Tiffanique Webb, the homeowner, tried to remain patient with Tyrese, granting him several months to restore the property. However, when Tyrese stopped responding to communication attempts, Webb felt compelled to pursue legal action. She is seeking more than $25,000 in damages.
As of now, Tyrese has not responded to the lawsuit or provided any official comment regarding the allegations. The outcome of this legal battle remains uncertain.
