Who is Tyler Perry?
Born to Willie Maxine Perry and Emmitt Perry Sr., Perry didn’t have a great childhood as others. He was born in New Orleans and had three siblings. His father was not much of a listener but he usually worked his way out with kids by thrashing them up.
Perry was so disturbed because of the happenings of his house that he attempted to bring an end to his life. But his mother sincerely took the kids for worship where the children learned to bear up and not produce evil thoughts.
At the age of 16, Emmitt finally changed his name to Tyler. It was after the film “ Precious “, that Tyler revealed the past issues that bothered him.
