Tyler Perry is doing all he can to help a grieving family.
The actor and filmmaker, 49, stepped in to help Tynesha Evans’ four kids after police say she was fatally shot by her boyfriend on Saturday in Atlanta. The suspect, Othniel Inniss, allegedly lured the 45-year-old mom to a Wells Fargo bank under the pretense of giving her money for rent only to shoot her instead, according to police.
Evans’ daughter Audrey Turner says that she got a call from Perry after the news broke, and was surprised to hear how much he was willing to help.
“It was a call I wasn’t even going to answer. I said, ‘Well, let me answer it to see who it is.’ I answered and the person on the other end said, ‘This is Tyler.’ I said, ‘Who?’ He said, ‘This is Tyler.’ I said, ‘Tyler who?’ and he said, ‘Tyler Perry.’ At that point, I just broke down crying,” Audrey told a local news stationthis link opens in a new tab.
