ACTOR Tyrese Gibson has asked for prayers after disclosing that his mother, Pricilla Murray, was admitted to the hospital after being diagnosed with Covid-19 and pneumonia.
Who is Tyrese Gibson’s mom?
Well-recognized as Tyrese’s mother, Priscilla Murray Gibson first gained the attention of the public when her son debuted his 1998 studio album, which included the single Sweet Lady.
The song hit number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

On Sunday, February 6, Tyrese shared that his mother was hospitalized for Covid-19 and pneumonia, being treated in the ICU.
