BERKELEY'S ROMANTIC LIFE 

Gelila Bekele and Tyler Perry started dating in 2009. The two met in 2007 at a Prince concert. They have been together for a while, but they make sure to keep their relationship away from the public. The couple have a son together.

Once in an interview, the "Madea" creator light-heartedly revealed that he received the news of his girlfriend's pregnancy through FaceTime.

His turbulent childhood made him attempt suicide and at a young age, Tyler slashed his wrist.

SOME FACTS ABOUT PERRY

Perry said: "I get a FaceTime call and she's holding up the pregnancy stick, I'm like, 'I guess this is happening.'" The couple welcomed their son, Aman, in 2014.

Perry and Bekele also maintain a low profile policy for their young son. The actor hardly ever shares images of his son on social media. His reason being that he wants Aman to live a "normal" life outside paparazzi.

Tyler Perry is an acclaimed actor, director, and movie maker who has garnered several accolades of international recognition for himself and his brand, but this star was from a humble home, and he endured the brunt of an abusive father as a child.

While Tyler found out that he was going to be a father, his memory was drawn back to when he found out that his dad wasn't his biological father. Describing it as strange, the "Acrimony" mastermind told People at the time:

"I was in the very arena that I had played, and I got the test results back — the test saying my father wasn't my father."
