During a recent speech at the Women’s Empowerment 2014 event in Raleigh, North Carolina, Tyler Perry spoke about his mission to find his biological father after discovering a lie that was told to him by his mother.

The 44-year-old director confessed that he was disappointed when he found out that his mother , who is now deceased,  lied to him about his father’s identity for most of his life.

“I love my mother to death, but she lied to me,” he told the audience.

Perry has never been shy about discussing the abuse he received at the hands of the man he thought was his father. Or that he attempted suicide at the age of 10.

“His only answer to everything was to beat it out of you,” Perry  once said.

Perry used his speech at the event to encourage people to  be honest with their children.

“Some of you have secrets that your kids need to know,” he said. “Let the chips fall where they may. For the peace of that person, let them know”.

    Tyler Perry needs to get some help. ASAP! He is so very upset with his mother, who has now passes away. He keep saying he loves her but I think he hates her to the bone. She allowed him to get abused by the fake father, then she just let all kinds of crazy things happen to him and he has now learned she lied about the identity of his Father. Poor child of heaven. All I can say is what more can a black man take? I feel like he might be suicidal and hates Women.

    He is a grown ass man, he needs to get over it! He’s trying to take this and make another silly movie. His father could be a relative! He’s just looking for something to make money.
