HomeTVThe Oprah Winfrey ShowTyler Perry to Discuss His Childhood Rape on Wed.’s Oprah Jamey Giddens October 19, 2010 The Oprah Winfrey Show 4 Comments Megastar Tyler Perry is set to go into detail for the first time about his childhood molestation at the hands of several men and a woman on Oprah this Wednesday. The multi-hyphenate entertainer, who famously turned his tragedy into triumph by penning the stage play I Know I’ve Been Changed in response to the abuses he suffered as a child, has never discussed at length what happened to him as a boy until now. While I have a love/hate relationship with Perry’s plays and films, I admire anyone who can flip an unspeakable evil and build a platform of forgiveness and success. Perry’s new movie For Colored Girls comes out Nov. 5. I know I’ll be tuning in to The Mighty O’s show tomorrow, will you? 4 Responses Ryan-Scott October 19, 2010 I have always had the biggest crush on this guy. I will be watching. Little sweetie pie.

It’d be great if he would start telling the complex stories his audience deserves, though. Log in to Reply Smitty October 19, 2010 I will be watching.
