Over the weekend, Tyler Perry and his girlfriend Gelila Bekele held a christening for their son Aman Tyler Bekele-Perry. But it wasn’t just any ordinary christening. Instead of finding a church to hold the christening, Perry decided to build a replica of his mother’s church in his Beverly Hills backyard. Can you say, “money ain’t a thang”?
“I had this church built in my backyard. It’s almost a direct replica of the one my Mother grew up in. It was in her honor. I know she was with us in spirit. Thank you to all our family and friends for joining us,” Perry stated on Facebook.
The star studded event included attendees such as Smokie Norful, Jennifer Hudson, Bill Withers and Yolanda Adams. Not only was Oprah Winfrey named as Aman’s godmother, so was Cecily Tyson and international entrepreneur Oliver Ripley was named the godfather.
Needless to say, Aman will probably never have to want for nothing. Unlike those people who just want Perry to stop making Madea movies.
