According to Pulse of Radio,

Tyler Perry recently revealed a very personal secret during a visit at the Women’s Empowerment 2014 event in Raleigh, North Carolina.

During an interview with Radio One‘s Cathy Hughes, Perry shared that he’s been looking for his biological father. He explained,  “I love my mother to death, but she lied to me.”

According to Perry, he took a DNA test with his brother and realized that the man who raised him was not his biological father. This was especially painful for the star because the man was very abusive.

Perry urged women in the crowd not to keep secrets from their children.

Tyler’s latest movie, Single Mom Club, didn’t do so well at the box office. The film took in $8 million opening weekend.
