Tyra Banks siblings
Tyra Banks and her brother, Devin Banks visited injured patients at Walter Reed Medical Center in December 2003.

Devin and Tyra were more like rivalries while growing up and they remained as such for about 25 years. And the reason is simple, Devin was basically jealous of Tyra because of the treatment she got from their parents while he was given a harsher treatment.

His anger towards his father for the beatings he was subjected to played a key role in his “hate” for Tyra at the time. However, as they grew up, they became the best of friends.

The two opened up about their relationship on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 2000. He’s is what Devin said “It was certainly right, absolutely, for about 25 years. I’m profoundly ashamed to say that but I tormented her for about 20, 25 years.”

“it was my mission in life. I was actually projecting and displacing a lot of anger, teen angst, and so forth onto her. She was vulnerable and it was easy.” he revealed.

He added that, “I felt my father was trying to rear me to be more macho and masculine but it’d hard to explain to an adolescent that the disparity of treatment and the division of labor thing is to make you more of a man.” Thankfully, Tyra and Devin are now very good friends/siblings since Tyra was 25 years old where she was able to stand up to her brother in an argument that made him realise she was a big girl after all.

The siblings visited injured service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center on December 19, 2003 in an attempt to lift their spirits.
