My Mother Lied To Me About My True Father – Actor Tyler Perry
Tyler Perry is one man who's learned to live a positive life no matter what comes his way and he's succeeding on this path. The guy almost killed himself as a teenager while he was growing up, due to the way and manner his father used to beat him like a "slave". But Tyler didn't even know that the man was just his mother's husband and not necessarily his real father.
His mother is late now and she never told him the truth before departing this world. But 44years old Tyler took a DNA test with his brother recently and the result shows that they are not brothers and that man who almost killed him with serious beatings is obviously not his true father.
Tyler is heart-broken over the discovery. Below is how he addressed the issue:
"I love my mother to death, but she lied to me. Some of you have secrets that your kids need to know. Let the chips fall where they may. For the peace of that person, let them know."
Of course, he is angry, but he still used his story to teach other women how to relate with their children. While addressing an audience at the Women's Empowerment 2014 event in North Carolina, Tyler said he had always believed that Emmitt Perry, the violent man he grew up with, was his father. But he is not.
Now he's looking for his real father. I just wonder what stopped his mother from telling him the truth. So sad!
