“Fast & Furious” star Tyrese Gibson has bought his mother a house to celebrate her 11th year of sobriety last week.

Gibson said his prayers for clarity have been answered after he’d believed for years that his mother was the “only one who has ever broken” his heart.

“It’s very easy to THINK of your parents as the actual problem because of what THEY’re saying and doing while drinking or using drugs…,” Gibson wrote on Instagram, accompanying a photo of his mother leaning on his shoulder.

Gibson said his mother introduced him to the Lord and showed him what love is. He now realizes that the things she did and said while she was under the influence wasn’t really her.

“That was NEVER my mother who said and did those things…. That was a women under the ‘influence,’” Gibson wrote. “The mother that I know that raised me before the drinking started was always in church, always sweet to everyone, always giving…”

After 27 years of alcoholism, Gibson wrote, “So blessed to know that this same JESUS brought me my mother back.” And after more than a decade of sobriety, Gibson wrote that he now trusts his mother again – and trusts her with his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.

My mother introduced me to the Lord my mother showed me what love is, she’s also the only one who has ever broken my heart so I thought……. It’s very easy to THINK of your parents as the actual problem because of what THEY’re saying and doing while drinking or using drugs…….. My prayers for clarity has been answered… That was NEVER my mother who said and did those things…. That was a women under the “influence”…. The mother that I know that raised me before the drinking started was always in church, always sweet to everyone, always giving, and in most cases giving to those who in my opinion didn’t deserve it…… So blessed to know that this same JESUS brought me my mother back…. alcohol took you away from me for 27 years…… 11 years later I trust you with me again….. I trust Shayla with you again…….. The memories of what was said and done are slowly fading away cause a mother would never ever do that to her Baby Boy……… enjoy your day I hope at least person out there is touched by this message…….. Don’t get caught up in the hype….. This is what my timeline is about asserting and inspiring change…… Mother I will echo this around the world that I forgive you…… And I will forever blame it on the Ah Ah Ah Ah Alcohol

While his mother’s substance abuse “killed” his childhood, Gibson bought her a five-bedroom home to celebrate her sobriety.

“This is how I decided to celebrate her and the victories God’s favor that he has extended over her life,” Gibson wrote.
