Tyler Perry dropped a shocker during an intimate interview with Cathy Hughes at the Women’s Empowerment Expo 2014. The media mogul revealed a shocking family secret.

“I love my mother to death, but she lied to me”, Perry who is popular for the ‘Madea’ movies told Radio One founder Cathy Hughes during his interview.

Perry says he suspected the man who raised him was not his father because he was so abusive toward him. His mother, now deceased, always made it clear that the man was Perry’s father. After his mother died, Perry had a DNA test with his brother. The test revealed they did not have the same father. He then took a DNA test with a man who raised him. The test confirmed that the man who caused Perry so much pain as a child was not his biological father.

Perry encouraged women in the audience not to keep secrets from their children. “Your guilt will always prevent you from accepting good things to happen to you.”  Perry remarked, “When you start taking responsibilities for your own mess, your own insecurities, for your own problems, that’s when your life begins to change.”

Perry called the man who raised him a ‘bastard’ and said he was not his father because he was so abusive toward him.

He also revealed that though he wasn’t sexually abused by his father, his father sexually abused one of his friends.

Perry encouraged women in the audience not to keep secrets from their children and let go of their guilt.

If you remember, in 2009 Perry made an appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” where he recounted his shocking childhood abuse to his fans. “My father came home, mad at the world,” he says. “He was drunk, as he was most of the time. He got the vacuum cleaner extension cord and trapped me in a room and beat me until the skin was coming off my back.”

And the search for his biological father continues.
