Tyler Perry opening up about Why He Keeps Son Aman Out of the Spotlight and why he believes his personal relationships should remain private.
In the August/September cover story of AARP The Magazine Tyler Perry revealed why he keeps his 7 years old son Aman out of the limelight.
Perry Shares his 7 years old son Aman with his ex Gelila Bekele. The couple was split in December 2020.
On keeping his son out of the spotlight 52-year-old filmmaker said "Because these people are not famous. My son's not famous, I want him to have as normal a life as he can."
Tyler further said of his son “I want him to know what it's like to have his own name and his own life and not have the pressure of trying to live up to whatever or whoever your father was.
Tyler Perry also shared that he is waiting for his son to gown up so that he can discuss race with his son.
He shared. "I don't want to tell him that there are people who will judge him because of the color of his skin because right now he's in a school with every race, he never defines them by race."
He continued, "So, the moment he loses that innocence is going to be a very sad day for me. What I want him to be somebody who sees injustice, speaks out against it and effects change.
At the Tribeca Film Festival in July King asked Perry what it's like raising a child who is growing up in circumstances different than the ones Perry himself grew up in.
In response, Perry said "Aman does not get everything he wants. For birthdays, he'll get a gift or two, Because he doesn't have a job. He ain't got no money."
