Tyler Perry dropped a shocker during an intimate interview with Cathy Hughes at the Women’s Empowerment Expo 2014. The media mogul revealed a shocking family secret.

Perry says he suspected the man who raised him was not his father because he was so abusive toward him. His mother, now deceased, always made it clear that the man was Perry’s father. After his mother died, Perry had a DNA test with his brother. The test revealed they did not have the same father. He then took a DNA test with a man who raised him. The test confirmed that the man who caused Perry so much pain as a child was not his biological father.

Perry encouraged women in the audience not to keep secrets from their children. He says now, he is trying to find out who is his biological father.

If you remember, in 2009 Perry made an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show where he recounted his shocking childhood abuse to his fans. “My father came home, mad at the world,” he says. “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.”

And the search for his biological father continues.

    Bon Soi, Mr.Perry, my friend needs your advice. She has been diagnosed to have a split. When she was young, 3) she was traumatized, and now, 20 years later? She must tell the child who his dad is. She is devastated. Can you help?

  2. I know who his daddy is Mr. Martin Luther King Jr., now he can stop looking. Mr. Perry….. Bernice need your help in keeping the Bible in family so give her a call asap before those brothers of yours sell it to highest bidder. J/K he do resemble Mr. King though.

  3. WOW….I feel sad about this….Tyler please keep your head up and I pray you’ll find the one you’re searching for and it won’t take long…..

    Sure he will make a movie, a play or both from this information and people will go see it-the female chittlin circuit which is who his fans/supporters are.

    Too many cynical remarks regarding a serious situation. Women should tell their children at an age appropriate time about their heritage. Those secrets always come to light and can be very hurtful. My father seemed to hate me from my earliest recollections and I truly believe that he may not be my father and this has affected me in my relationships with others.

  6. My mom did the same thing to me. My oldest sister told me one day when she was mad at me about something. Hell of a way to find out. Children deserve to know the truth. God Bless and Good Luck…
