Tyler's hard childhood days

It wasn't the same life of Tyler as it is now. The young Tyler has faced a harsh moment back then. 

Coming to the fact, he made a suicidal attempt once. Yes, you heard it true. 

He had followed the action to break free from his father's smacks. 

Seeing this, his mother, along with young Tyler, went to church. 

Only when he was sixteen, he changed his first name to Tyler

And the reason for that was to keep space between him and his biological father. 

Tyler Perry’s latest film, A Jazzman’s Blues, is the first movie script he ever wrote 27 years ago

During an interview with “The View,” Perry talked about his latest film, A Jazzman’s Blues, where he revealed the inspiration behind the movie that took 27 years in the making. 

It is the first movie script he ever wrote 27 years ago. When asked where he was at that point, he said he was broke, hungry, and struggling but was trying to get his life and career together. 

In the late 1990s, he used to sneak into the theatre, and one day he luckily got an opportunity to sneak into August Wilsons’s play. 

Recalling the moment, he said that the meeting was short but what he does remember is that he was very encouraging to him. 

He recalled talking to him about his first show, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,“ and that wasn’t going well and how it was being met with people calling it the chitlin circuit.

Wilson explained to him what the chitlin circuit meant and the circuit and how important it was for the survival of Black artists at the time. 

And that was how he got a very new opinion of the work that he was working on, and also, his heart opened to write something totally different. 

He started writing, and Jazzman was born.

He also expressed that among the films he has directed so far, Jazzman was the first film that he really enjoyed where he didn’t feel like he was working because it is the movie he had held for so long, and he described it to be his dream. 

His doing “Madea” always felt like work, but while doing Jazzman, he wanted to take time and assure every frame looked like it could be a photograph. 

Here is why Tyler offered Megan and Harry his home to live in

Tyler, while talking to Today’s hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, revealed the reason behind offering Megan and Harry his home to live in was because of the love they have for each other. 

Meghan and Harry were departing their roles as senior members of the family in 2020 when he offered them his home in California

Tyler said that the time was difficult for them and also, what he knows about them is that the couple truly loves each other, which he wants the World to know as well. 

They found each other out of all these odds against them finding each other, and they found each other. The love they have is really moving, and he just wanted to do anything to support them, he added.
