People have speculated that Tyler Perry is gay ever since he played Madea, a cross-dressing grandma. In a 2011 Madame Noire article addressing the spectators, it says, “Perry’s been dealing with the question marks about his sexuality since he and Madea sashayed from the “chittlin circuit” some time ago. Although he has not shied away from the rumors, publicly stating several times that he is in fact straight, the rumor has persisted.”
Tyler Perry was born September 13, 1969 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Perry is known as an actor, producer and director. A few films Perry is known for are Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Meet the Browns and Madea’s Big Happy Family. In 2011, Forbes named Perry the highest paid man in entertainment.
