Tyler Perry is showing off his body at the gym, and revealing some information about his personal life.

“This is what a midlife crisis looks like. I’m 51, single and wondering what the next chapter in my life will look like,” Tyler posted alongside the photo. “Whatever it looks like I’m going to walk with God, be the best father and man I can be, hold my head up high, and try to look my best doing it!! In a world with so much sadness, please try and stay in the good! Merry Christmas and let’s look forward to 2021 bringing us peace!”

Tyler Perry Donates to Breonna Taylor's Boyfriend Legal Defense Fund

Tyler Perry is helping out Breonna Taylor‘s boyfriend.

The 51-year-old TV and film mogul made a $100,000 donation to help Kenneth Walker‘s legal defense, Deadline reports.

Breonna, a Black woman who was an EMS, was killed by police officers while she slept in her home in Louisville, Kentucky earlier this year.

In October, one of the officers involved in the shooting – Jon Mattingly – sued Kenneth for assault, battery, and emotional distress for shooting the officer in the leg during the botched raid.

A GoFundMe page was then set up on Kenneth‘s behalf to help raise funds for the legal battle against Mattingly. With Tyler‘s donation, the page has raised over $102,000 so far.

“It’s outrageous for one of the men partially responsible for all that, to sue the man who endured it,” the GoFundMe page reads. “The raid that killed Breonna Taylor was poorly conceived, nightmarishly executed, and hastily covered-up. The subsequent grand jury proceedings were farcical and staged. Daniel Cameron’s statements were disingenuous, at best. Jon Mattingly’s lawsuit is the nearly-unbelievable next step in this ongoing mockery of justice.”

Back in September, a Kentucky grand jury only indicted one of the four officers involved in Breonna‘s death.
