Star model Gelila Bekele stunned her media timeline with a lovely glam that had her showing off her gorgeous figure while basking in her beauty hour.

Tyler Perry's ex-lover Gelila Bekele showed fans what she was up to on her Instagram story while she gracefully worked in a photoshoot session. Bekele flaunted her bombshell figure to the delight of admirers.

The public figure left her wild curls free of any band, making her hair spread around her shoulders while her face was done up in perfect makeup. Bekele ran her hands through her curls while presenting poses. 

Last December, Bekele, 34, and her former partner, Perry, were in the news after breaking up. The pair were together for over a decade and had a son together.


Perry, 51, also announced on social media that he was a single man again. An insider revered that the pair split up amicably and are now focused on being co-parents.

In his post, the billionaire stated that he wanted to be the best dad, keep thriving in his career, and look the best he could be. These days, the star has a lot on his hands with his recently signed deal with Disney. 

Perry opened up about fatherhood, noting that his son gave him the most joy in his life.

Bekele combines being a model with social activism in her hometown in Ethiopia. She is also a filmmaker. The star gears her activism towards equal rights and access to education for girls. 

Her foray into showbiz started at the age of 19 when she was at UC Berkeley. Bekele once shared that she was hesitant to become a model because she never envisioned making a living through her physical features. 


Now that she is in the spotlight, the runway star and her former lover made a unanimous decision to keep their little son, Aman, out of the public eye, making sure he was protected. 

Once in an interview with People, Perry opened up about fatherhood, noting that his son gave him the most joy in his life. The star dad gushed over Aman, stating that the little one was quite inquisitive. 

The moviemaker, who endured an abusive childhood, explained that he was ready to raise his son in a better condition, letting the five-year-old know to be conscious of his own being.
