Birthday: Sep 13, 1969
Birthplace: New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
Suffered as a child from a violent abusive father and once attempted suicide. His mother took him to church every Sunday, a place where he found peace and solace. A DNA test later in life proved that Emmitt Sr wasn't his biological father. Wrote his first play, I Know I've Been Changed, to deal with issues from his childhood. Created the character Madea for the 2000 play I Can Do Bad All by Myself. Published his first book, Don't Make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings: Madea's Uninhibited Commentaries on Love and Life, in April 2006. Established the Tyler Perry Foundation to help economically disadvantaged people overcome adversity by achieving a better quality of life. Topped Forbes' list of the Highest-Paid Men in Entertainment in 2011, earning $130 million between May 2010 and May 2011. His second book, Higher is Waiting, was published in November 2017 and rose to number 5 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
