Paul Walker's close friend Tyrese Gibson has revealed how the actor's loved ones – including his 16-year-old daughter Meadow – are coping following his tragic death. Speaking at the premiere of Fast and Furious 7, which stars the late actor, Tyrese said it's "so hard" to promote the film without him.
"He was truly an angel," the actor told People. "We were inspired to pick up the pieces and keep moving because it became 'Let us do this on his behalf.' It's really hard to do red carpets and have so many people walking up to you screaming… I'm just thinking to myself, 'It's not about me. It is so all about Paul.'"
The 36-year-old also spoke about Paul's daughter Meadow, who inherited her dad's fortune following his death in December 2013.

"She's really in a great space," Tyrese said. "She's really focused on her education and just spending a lot of quality time with her friends. That brings her a lot of joy."
Paul's only daughter often uses her social media pages to pay tribute to her dad, and recently shared a sweet throwback photo of the pair together after the Fast and Furious 7 trailer was released.
Meanwhile Paul's younger brother Cody also attended the Los Angeles premiere, and said he loved the movie.

"I'm so happy with it. I think Paul would be proud," he said.
The 26-year-old, who filmed scenes in the movie in place of his late brother, added: "I've known some of [the cast] for the last 15 years, but not at this level. I've just tripled my family in the last year."
Tyrese also took the opportunity to praise Cody and his brother Caleb for standing in to film scenes for the film franchise.
"It could not have been easy for [Cody and Caleb]…to step in for their brother who just lost. I have a bunch of new heroes from being a part of this project. It feels like the most beautiful sending off you'll ever see."
