As a former model, Tyrese was used to baring it all for photo shoots, but when the R&B artist/actor appeared shirtless on the cover of the July 2003 issue of Playgirl, it surprised even him.
The Transformer and
2 Fast 2 Furious star never actually posed for the magazine, and says, "I didn't know anything about it." Breathless fans were disappointed by what was inside the issue. The magazine, which featured an article about the triple threat star, appropriated the sweaty cover photo from Tyrese's album,
I Wanna Go There.
