Outing people as gay or lesbian isn’t nice. In fact, you might get hurt if you do it. That’s the message one man may have been delivered after he claimed Tyler Perry was once “a gay black man” who has since abandoned the gay community. And now, the man who portrays Madea is responding with some interesting comments.

Walter Lee Hampton II posted a video on YouTube on April 16 which details his complex and close relationship with Tyler, who as a playwright allegedly said his popular Madea stage performances would not continue to garner financial and critical success if he came out.

“No one can know that I’m gay,” Tyler allegedly told Walter. “If people find out I’m gay, I’m going to lose the support of black church members.”

He also claims Tyler Perry stole the idea for Madea from a drag queen show.

But, after the release of the video, he was allegedly attacked by a group of men and received 120 stitches after suffering damage to his face, according to Mr. Obnoxious blog.

While Walter is staying mum on the attack now, some speculate the attack may be related. Granted, according to Mr. Obnoxious, he is also a serial attack dog online allegedly throwing shade at people through YouTube and social media.

Meanwhile, Diary of a Hollywood Street King has posted a portion of a blog that Tyler wrote in which he urges his fans to leave the past behind them, leading some to speculate he is quietly acknowledging an alleged homosexual past.

Listen to me, you can’t change anything that you have done in your past, all you can do is go forward. No matter how many mistakes you have made, no matter how many things you have done wrong, you have got to move forward. That is your past and there is no future in it. And the only way to move forward is to ask for forgiveness from the people who you have hurt and wronged. Whether they forgive you or not you must ask… sorry that’s just the way it is. If you don’t you will continue to reap bad things from what you have done to them, even if they don’t forgive you.

All this begs two questions: Is it ever right to out someone, or should Walter have just kept his mouth shut and let Tyler do it on his own, if he is indeed a closeted or former black gay man? And two, do you think Tyler is hiding the truth?

    Patricia J Schultz:, it doesn’t bother me if he is, would be a little shock. None the less hr is an awesome actor and his movies motivate ke in many differnt ways! I can watch his movies over and over and over agin. I actually am watching them right now on my tv.bet Music channels are awesome!no one should be judged, but the world we live in doesn’t see that! Its sad, but this rumor or even if not does not in any way change my opion of what i think of him! A man that is just gorgeous, handsome, talented and to what i see is a kind and also generous man. You rock Tyler Perry i know it would never happen but u are the one actor i would love to meet and just shake ur hand! Thank you for being an inspiration to me and make me laugh, cry, and learn!

  2. Well, i love tylers production, andhis themes, but from his comment, if he recognises all dat to be his past , is a good reasoning, he has even asked God for forgiveness and people he wronged, so he is as free as air. I love his works,

    I have always thought Tyler Perry as a gay black man from the first movie i saw that he stared in.
    Im just sadened to hear this guy bring this information to light about Tyler.
    I never could understand why tyler denied he was gay. Now i do and see now that he has the OJ dis-ease. Self Hate !
    I will never support this kind of person in the intertainment community who could have helped a segment of society from which he emerged from. Very selfish and full of hypocracy.

    Lee Browning, I doubt Tyler Perry would give a rat’s rear about your opinion of a rumor being spread about him by others, whether the rumor be true or not. As for me, I certainly don’t give a rat’s rear about someone’s opinion about “…this kind of person in the intertainment community…” when you can’t even SPELL “entertainment.” For that manner, someone who can’t spell “I’m,” “starred,” and “saddened.” I especially have no interest in someone who is unable to properly communicate his or her opinions due to ignorance of basic English that is taught every year of school.
