Tyler Perry To Appear On Oprah, Talks Childhood Rape
Famed director Tyler Perry will appear on Oprah Wednesday to give what he calls his “most in depth interview ever.”
Perry will join Winfrey to discuss the abuse he endured growing up as a child, from rape by both male and female relatives to sexual abuse at the hands of a church member.
The actor and playwright has previously discussed his traumatic childhood but took to his Twitter account to say that this account would be much more detailed.
“This Wednesday, October 20th, I will be on The Oprah Show doing the most in depth and revelatory interview I have ever done.”
Perry is said to describe the day he was raped as the day he “died” and will discuss when he contemplated suicide to end his pain.
The Oprah Winfrey shows airs weekdays at 4 p.m.
