Tyler Perry Time Off to Spend With Mother

Tyler Perry is one of the hardest working people in Hollywood, in just a few short years building his franchise of plays into a multimedia empire of movies and tv shows. But even he still took some time away from his work recently, so he could put family first and spend quality time with his mother.

Perry's mother had been ailing, and he wanted to be able to spend her last days being by her side, and decided to set aside as much time as he needed to for that, no matter how it affected his career. His mother passed away at the young age of 64, early this last December. So sad! But at least she got to see his rise to the top, and got to spend lots of time with him in her final days on this plane. I'm sure Tyler will work just as hard now to do her proud, as he gets set to re-enter the Hollywood scene and promote his new play "Madea's Big Happy Family."

Movie producer and actor Tyler Perry says he is taking his sharp-tongued character "Madea" back on tour. Perry posted a message on his Web site Saturday that said he had taken some time off in the past few months "so I could spend my mother's final days at her side." His mother, Willie Maxine Perry, died Dec. 8 at age 64.
