FILM TYLER PERRY


From The New York Daily News

Filmmaker Tyler Perry, who is promoting a new movie about an abused teenager, has gone public with brutal memories of his own childhood beatings and molestation.

In an email to fans that has Perry’s admirers buzzing, he recounts various examples of terrible childhood mistreatment – from his father beating him senseless to a neighbor woman molesting him at age 10.

He recounted being beaten by his father for reading books and filching cookies.

“He got the vacuum cleaner extension cord and trapped me in a room and beat me until the skin was coming off my back.
To this day, I don’t know what would make a person do something like that to a child,” Perry wrote.

Without elaborating on what seems to be another molestation incident, he mentioned “a man that I knew from church when I was a kid” who had died broke and whose family asked Perry to pay for the funeral.

“I quickly said no, but I wish I would have said yes. There is something so powerful to me in burying the man that molested me,” Perry wrote.

“I would have dug the grave myself.”
