Tyler Perry To Open Up To Oprah Winfrey About Being Molested

Tyler Perry will discuss his difficult childhood and sexual abuse today with his close personal friend Oprah Winfrey.  Deets inside...

 

“He was beaten, scarred and nearly broken,” the Oprah Winfrey site says, giving a preview of today’s visit. “In a groundbreaking interview, Hollywood mogul Tyler Perry reveals the devastating details of his childhood sexual abuse.”

In a preview, Tyler recalls the day he "died," when he was first molested. He tells Oprah that it happened more than once with men and a woman he was close to. He said he once blacked-out for three days afterward, telling Oprah, "It's so disgusting."

Tyler first discussed his sexual abuse in 2009, when he posted a letter on his website. He was experiencing a flood of memories following a screening of the Oscar-nominated Precious, which he co-produced, including a story of remembering a man in his church who molested him.

He will also be promoting his new movie, the adaptation of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, that comes out in November.

and its exactly that attitude

and its exactly that attitude that keeps the sick and twisted wheels of pedophilia alive. children who were molested need help, they need support and unconditional love and acceptance in order to heal, but know that so many people who have never been molested will judge them that it seems easier to keep it inside. problem is, the longer you keep it a secret, the more that sickness seeps into your brain and as a child you are developing who you will be the rest of your LIFE, so the longer you wait to confess and ask for help, the more sick you are becoming. look at michael jackson. i believe a lot of pedophiles were victims of molestation as well, they just never got the help they needed and ended up perpetuating the disease. this culture that prides itself so much on family values and doing it "for the kids" is extremely hypocritical when it comes to actually being there for the kids. there is nothing "off" with tyler perry. he is a wonderful smart funny deeply insightful creatively talented compassionate man who just happened to get molested as a child. now he is taking a step towards healing and doing what he has to do to make that happen, and using his celeb status to HELP OTHERS have the courage to do the same, i just cant believe there are actually people out there who would critisize and judge him so much for being so strong and inspiring. here's my point: if you have not been molested, you have NO RIGHT to judge those who have been. you have NO IDEA what we have been through and what it does to your self esteem for the rest of your life. the isolation and lonliness of feeling that you are alone is enough to drive you crazy and incapable of maintaining a "normal" healthy life with lasting meaningful relationships. i've been living a life of physical hell from chronic UTI's that ive been getting for 18 years since i was 10 from being molested. its impossible for me to have a solid relationship or have sex normally because of my abuse, and ignorance like yours is unforgiveable. wake up.

Friday, October 22, 2010 6:30 A.M. Bishop Walter Dixon of Atlanta, GA Official Press Release and Exclusive Prayer thanking “God” for providing Our Brother In Christ “Tyler Perry” the power of overcoming his shadow of darkness of his past through healing, prayers and faith by revealing these painful secrets of his life on “Oprah” and to the world. This is another testimonial that all things are possible through “God and Christ” My brother Tyler your testimonial has not only brought you one step closer to healing you have provided to others the spiritual medicine they needed to give them the strength to step out of their darkness of pain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r432N0STzn4 Bishop Dixon‘s Prayer Exclusive For Tyler Perry For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life, For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. (John 3:16, 17). Therefore having been justified by faith, may you have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom you have obtained your introduction by faith into his grace in which you stand; and you exult in hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but you also exult in your tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about trust; and trust proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint because the love of God has been poured out within your heart through the Holy Spirit who was given to you (Romans 5:1-5). You may be afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise you also with Jesus and will present your mind, body and most important, your soul with him. Therefore you should never lose heart, but through your inner flesh is decaying yet your inner soul is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for you an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while you look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporally, but the things which are not seen are eternal (2.Corinthians 4:8,9,14 16-18). As you lay your fragile body and soul in the hands of God almighty may you Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be near you to defend you, within you to refresh you, around you to preserve you, before you to guide you, behind you to justify you, above you to bless you. You shall lives and have a place with the Father and the Holy Ghost for all the remaining days of your life. Our Father, as “Christians” we thank you for being gracious to your child in Christ Tyler Perry according to thy loving kindness and according to the greatness of thy compassion. He thank you for your help, Father he maybe perplexed and afraid knowing, God it was your will and “Grace” that will get him through his life journey. God, I ask you to send your angels to help open the eyes of other children of yours that are living right now through the same dark pain that they too can come to you by faith knowing that you have the power of healing and that you are still “God”. We must believe by faith it was your son “Jesus Christ” who paid the price for our sins and suffering while he were here on earth. Amen Bishop Walter Dixon U.S.A. Forgiveness Missionary Church of Christ bishopwldixon@yahoo.com P.O. Box 832161 Stone Mountain, GA U.S.A 30083. ps. I have posted a copy of this prayer on Google, Face Book, My Space, Twitter and You Tube.com for others to join in celebration of what God can do.

How fortuitous that Mr. Perry

How fortuitous that Mr. Perry is telling his sexual abuse story a couple weeks before the opening of his film "For Colored Girls......." which has been getting some early Oscar buzz. Interesting how he shares the most intimate details of sexual abuse with Oprah on national television but refuses to come out of the closet. Mr. Perry has the power and platform to speak up about issues such as gay teen suicide. Adding his voice to the conversation as a successful gay man could save lives. I watched the entire show and I felt his was lying through his teeth, exaggerating the story for dramatic effect. I almost felt sorry for him that he appears to be so uncomfortable he doesn't even know who he is. Did you notice how she kept prompting him? I am very disappointed with Oprah. She is a very intelligent woman and has always asked us to live our authentic lives. If she and Tyler are good friends as we are to believe then why does she not help him come out and speak truthfully? Is it possible they are both just using each other she for ratings and he to promote his next film? Tell the truth Mr. Perry, lying to yourseld is only going to destroy you. Look what is happening to Bishop Eddie? It is common knowledge around Atlanta's gay community that he is gay. It is shameful the way he panders to the black homophobic church to sell movie tickets. What does it profit a man to gain the whole world yet suffer the loss of his own soul?

You guys are fucking nuts!!!

You guys are fucking nuts!!! He already told everybody he was molested. Why keep rehashing it? Duh, there's a movie coming out. For all you who say he was enough $ obviously don't know the industry. The rich do what they have to to stay rich. I'm sorry his body "betrayed" him too many times. I believe he was molested once and unfortunately turned into a sick, gay, sex-crazed child. They do exist. Y'all watch law and order SVU. He has issues and is using the fact that he was a child as an excuse. There are pregnant 10 year olds. Kids are not stupid. He is disgusting. I'm so sick of ppl taking up for these celebs like these celebs give a damn about you. They don't!

A child is a child those

A child is a child those things that happened to him were real it was his mothers fault for not protecting him against their enemy. Hopefully you were never molested as a child it is a terrible thing to endure regardless of your sex. Children are not safe when predators are around. What his sexually preference is today is a choice so as an adult he can choose, but being molested as a child was not his choice. It is a sick crime by an adult or more aggressive sick person that has no right to alter our life or sexual thought pattern. The child is the victim not the sick twisted child because who would impregnate a twelve year old child except a predator. If you have children protect them

Folks, this is a very serious topic! I saw the show and was deeply moved! Molestation happens in our black families more than you think. It happens to boys and girls. Real talk. I could share a story or two of my own. And I know male and femaile friends who were molested as kids by relatives, baby sitters, etc.. Let's not even get started about physical and verbal abuse in our families...

Wow! I never thought that I

Wow! I never thought that I would be discusssing this on the internet but hear it goes. I am a 40 yr old black male. I was molessted as a young boy by two uncles and my baby sitters teenage son. Later in life, while serving in the Army, I was raped by 8 men. It is a fact that predators can pick out those targets that are vulnerable. And victims often times subconciously find theselves in a situation that puts them at risk for victimization. I know this for a fact. It is a very devastating thing in a persons life. Especially when it happens to a child. I agree with Tyler when he said he died. I am forty and still wondering how did I make it this far. I suffer daily with depression and fear. Not only was I raped in Saudi Arabia but infected with HIV. I have not learned to begin to live my life for me. I have never really responded to blogs because there is never a shortage of ignorance and it sickens me. I thank Tyler for opening the door to this difficult topic. Our perspectives have been skewed over the years. Look at what is on television these days, death, crime, war, and sex. Isn't it time that we hear about real life. I am just glad that he was able to reach his dreams. There are so many of us that have not and I am proud of him. Those of you that cannot find something uplifting out this - well God Bless you and your journey.

My comment is to all the

My comment is to all the DUMMIES that think Tyler Perry is doing this for the money to get hype on his new movie. Get some smarts about yourself that MAN don't need the money or the hype he was just respecting the one person that he knew loved him and that he loved more, he loved her enough to keep all the mistakes she made by not protecting him as she should have when he was a boy. He didnt want to disgrace his mother and take her through anymore than she had already endured that's because he loved her, I would hate to see how you treat your mother. So now that she has left this earth its time for him to heal his self and if he feel this is what it took to do it than more power to him why do it always have to be a motive behind it, why do he need a motive. Mr. Tyer Perry these few negative people on this site is nothing to all the fans that you have they are just miseable human being with no life that's on here to speak out all the rude stuff and total meaness because their life is so eff up you are loved by MILLIONS your story was touching and I understand where you were coming from and THANK YOU for letting us into your life.

Molestation and sexual abuse

Molestation and sexual abuse that are unleashed on others usually are from Family, close friends, rarely strangers. I watched the show and was deeply sadened but glad that Tyler made us aware of how these preditors operate so that we have the knowledge to protect our most valuable resource, children. Before you would have to look out for your little girl now little boy are just as vunerable to this as the girls. People are making comments that he is doing this because his movie is coming out, Oprah is a good friend of his, he could have scheduled a whole show just on the movie and said nothing about he abuse he suffered. Tyler is not The Bad Girls club or Jersey Shore that he has to whore himself out in the media for lack of talent. Did anyone listen to the show, he waited until his mothers passing before coming out about it. And think about it, with this Bishop Eddie Long scandal (Tyler was sexual objectified by someone in the church who used God to justify thier evil) and For Colored Girls which the book is laced with the struggles of black women of which included physical and sexual abuse also the Madea plays that millions flocked to see before Tyler started making movies were laced with abused women finding thier worth and acceptance of themselves. This is an upside down crazy evil world we live in where the talentless, negative no good people are praised and the positive, open and honest people are ridiculed. We are living in the last days...

It amazes me how stupid some

It amazes me how stupid some people can be. This man was on TV telling the world how he was beaten by his father, how men AND women touched him, how it confused him sexually, and how he's still dealing with it today. He's really not that beat for ticket sales. His aunt was in the audience confirming lots of what he said. Miserable people always have some negative shit to say. Talking about what he went through is a way of healing for those of you who don't know or who have never gone through this.

Well, regardless of what Oprah's or Tylers intentions were, this is something that the balck community needs to address in order to protect our kids and teach them to know unacceptable behavior. Instead of chasing Beyonce's uterus to see if is full or empty, we need to make sure the kids that are here already are well. I don't think that either Tyler nor Oprah was lying or trying to sell using their testimony because it was quite evident in their tone, moods and expressions that they were reliving that horror. And, folks its alive and well in our community with mothers believing the perpetrator with the paycheck over their own kids. I know. I worked in Family Court for many years. Wake up!

Oprah is full of it. I don't

Oprah is full of it. I don't think anyone is saying that molestation is not a real problem in the black community but to suggest that the reason some black males have "problems" is based on molestation is reaching! I saw some of this show and I turned.It was so manipulative. Tyler Perry is a LIAR to me. He's making this stuff up to sell movie tickets. I remember when NY JETS star Laveranues Coles came on the Oprah Winfrey show back in 2002 to share his story of sexual abuse and Perry called into the show to express they were "friends" and mentioned his abuse then (back in 2002..google it) And Now this is an issue again??? I also think these two were more then friends because they have been seen together in public and there were many blind reports of these two seeing each other in a gay relationship. Tyler Perry is just plain gay and I don't buy for a second he was "molested". You people should watch that movie Doubt. It touches on the subject of molestation. Viola Davis' character was very interesting because it's clear she knew that this priest was molesting her son but in her mind it was ok because she felt the Priest could "help" him because his father was beating him because he was gay. I think predators seek out these gay males like and have sex with them (Eddie Long) and we need to stop that and protect the children but people like Perry are exploiting this for PROFIT. According to Perry his life was worst than Precious'.According to Perry he was molested by 3 men and 1 women??? COME ON! This story is like Antwan Fisher and Precious combined! LIES. When Tyler Perry comes out of the Closet and stops lying about his sexuality maybe I'll believe him. Tyler lies. He said he was dating Tyra (LIE). He was "engaged to Taraji (LIE) when his movie came out and she was staring. This man is a manipulator and to take a serious topic like this as his new Angle is despicable and gross. And It's shocking how easily people fall for this FRAUD.

I don't think its reaching. I do belive stuff like this happens. I nor u know of tylers childhood so really cannot say that it did or did not happen. I have two family members that are child molesters. They have seperated our family. They have repeatedly raped and molested the children in the family. They were not the only ones. The stories in which I can tell you you just may not believe. The issue was never really discussed though everyone knew. We werent allowed to be alone with them. One of the victims in the family is a gay male. I don't know if that was the reason he is l just know that is. All have relationship issues. I hope you understamd what I'm tryn to say it os very hard to put in words and I dare not say the words out loud. This is something that is continuously swept under the rug or covered up of you will. Like I said Don't know if it happen to Mr. Perry but I wish people would not come down so hard on him because you never no. It can tear a person apart.

I don't understand who you are replying to but here's a question were the people in your family told not to let anyone touch them? Were they grown? Point is if its someone they trust a three year old may have trouble telling them not to touch them or may not no it is wrong. If they did could they are still not strong enough to fight back. If they can talk maybe it might help in future prevention but it may have already happened.
