He’s the reason for the season, or so we’re told, and thus the reason Tyrese Gibson just bought his 8-year-old daughter an island. I repeat: 8-year-old. AN ISLAND.

The Fast and Furious star told Entertainment Tonight that Shayla’s new turf is the craziest gift he’s ever given, and we sure as frost hope that’s the truth because ISLAND.

“Well, I just bought my daughter an island,” the singer and model replied when ET asked what’s the “most lavish or over-the-top gift” he’s given or received. “Can’t say [where]. She knows all about it and the island is called Love Island. I’ll be putting it up on my Facebook soon.”

We think it’s safe to say that the multi-hyphenate is winning the Favorite Divorced Parent Contest. Gibson shares Shayla with ex-wife Norma Gibson, whom he quit in 2009 after two years of marriage.

The two got into a messy custody dispute in 2014 when Norma denied Tyrese visitation with his daughter.

“Norma Gibson, Tyrese’s ex-wife, denied him a court custodial order with their daughter Shayla on Feb. 11, 2014,” his rep told Us Weekly at the time. “Tyrese arrived to pick up Shayla and was denied access by her mother. Mr. Gibson called the police to the scene, and Mrs. Gibson called TMZ.”

Bet Norma's pumped about this whole island thing.
