His luck in dating is quite bad because he always ends up breaking up with every woman he came into a relationship with.

Before stepping into Tyler’s love life, let me flash some light on his early life. Tyler Perry was born on 13 September 1969 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He grew up with his three siblings. Tyler’s relationship with his father was not so good. Moreover, his childhood was more like some kind of torture for him. Because he was molested by so many people including his friend’s mother. And before being molested by his friend’s mother, Tyler was also molested by three different men. We can say that Perry’s early life was so traumatized. At the age of 16, Perry decided to distance himself from his dad. Besides that, Tyler didn’t even complete high school. After all that, Perry finally got his way to build his career.


One day, Tyler was watching an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, in which someone mentioned some writing therapy. That, if someone wants to move out from his problems then they should write it on a paper. And Tyler liked that idea so much that he started to implement it in his life. And later he started liking writing so much. After that, he knew he wanted to become a writer. During the 1990s and 2000s, Perry produces so many television series. He also acted in so many films such as Star Trek, Alex Cross, Gone Girl, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows, Vice, Those Who Wish Me Dead, Don’t Look Up, and many more. Moreover, Tyler also made his voice acting for animated films titled PAW Patrol: The Movie, The Star.
