Tyler Perry Shows Bravery On Oprah, Talks Painful Past (VIDEO)

Actor/Director Tyler Perry, best known for making movies that begin with his name, recently sat down on Oprah’s couch to bare his soul to the Queen of Media and her audience.

Tyler recalled violent beatings from his father during childhood, molestation by 4 different adults, and other horrors. He was so depressed he actually considered suicide.

Tyler forgave hs father, though the man never apologized. Coming forward and opening up was certainly a way to get back at the man and a huge sign of bravery. He said he decided to speak out in order to help other men who have been affected by abuse and I am sure he has. Despite everything he went through, Tyler has become successful and seems to lead a happy life. He’s a great example to others.
