Tyler Perry's ex, model and activist Gelila Bekele is an absolutely stunning woman, and in a recent video she shared on Instagram, she flaunted some of her amazing features.

Taking to Instagram, Gelila Bekele posted a video of herself sitting in a car that looked to be in motion as the wind blew strands of her hair into her face.

In the clip, the Ethiopian-born model had on dark sunshades and a blue sweatshirt. Her long brown hair had curls obstructing her view, and she had to use her hands to push it aside.

Bekele did not look like she had on a lot of makeup; however, her lips were lined and filled in with purple lipstick. The post had the caption:

“Looking like Slash ? ✂️ @hoshounkpatin merci mon Amore. ?.”

The clip, which was shared with Bekele’s 110,000 followers, had over 18,000 views and numerous likes and comments from fans and followers.


Some of the comments revolved around how beautiful the model looked, with most of the fans showing their admiration and appreciation for her natural look and hair.

Perry hinted that things between him and the model might have come to an end


Bekele is a 34-year-old model who moved to the United States at the age of 19 after being born and raised in Ethiopia. She is signed to Elite Model Management, and her portfolio includes modeling for top brands such as Tory Burch and Michael Kors.

Aside from being a model, Bekele is also an activist who has made it her mission to fight for clean water, education, and women’s rights in Ethiopia.


If she is not modeling or carrying out her humanitarian activities, Bekele enjoys being a mother to her son with director and movie producer Tyler Perry. The pair welcomed their son, Aman, in 2017.

Speaking on being a parent to their son, Perry has expressed that he enjoys all the things that come with being a father. From reading to his son and telling him about life, he loves spending time with him as much as he can.

While Perry and Bekele love to keep their relationship private, earlier this year, Perry hinted that things between him and the model might have come to an end when he shared a post hinting at being single.

Although the reason for their separation is not known, Perry and Bekele seem to be on the same page about keeping their son and life out of the public eye.
