WOW! Tyler Perry just dropped yet another bomb about his family life! According to sources in Raleigh NC at Radio One’s Women’s Empowerment Expo at PNC Arena, just moments ago Tyler Perry revealed that the man he knew as his father his entire life was not really his biological father!
During his interview with Cathy Hughes, Perry revealed that he always had doubts about being the biological son of his very abusive father. He explained that even after his mother reassured him on her death bed that the man who raised him was his real father, he still needed to take his suspicions a step further.
After his mother passed away he got a DNA test done with his brother and they didn’t match. So then he got a DNA test done with his father and the results were exactly what he thought! The man who abused him and his mother was NOT his biological father!
If you remember Perry recounted his shocking childhood abuse to his fans on his website in 2009 after the release of ‘Precious’, which he co-produced with Oprah Winfrey.
“My father came home, mad at the world,” he writes. “He was drunk, as he was most of the time. He got the vacuum cleaner extension cord and trapped me in a room and beat me until the skin was coming off my back.”
He also revealed that though he wasn’t sexually abused by his father, his father sexually abused one of his friends. I’m sure this revelation explains answers a lot of questions for Perry but it also now opens a lot of new questions, most importantly who is his REAL FATHER? The interview is still going on as I report this so more details to come!!
