He’s been trying to make sense of the tragic loss of Paul Walker, and Tyrese Gibson took a trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates with Will Smith as part of his grieving process.

During his interview on “Arsenio,” the “Fast and Furious 6” hunk explained that he’s in a much better place these days.

Tyrese began, “Oh, Dubai was great. I just got home yesterday. I found my smile again in Dubai. It was amazing out there.”

“Everybody knows what happened in my world around the end of the year with Paul Walker, my best man. And so I was just with him four days before it happened. We were on the set [of ‘Fast and Furious 7’] and it was a lot of shock and trauma for the family and all of us involved because he was such a nice guy.”

Gibson added, “I’ve never been depressed in my life but I was very, very sad and down and it took me a minute to shake it.”
