Tyler Perry admitted that he became heavily dependent on alcohol after his mother died four months ago and that it has been a struggle to kick the habit.
Recently Perry opened up about his pain and alcohol addiction to Essence magazine. He shared with the magazine that he would drink to help ease the pain and that it took a visit from President Barack Obama to realize that he was quickly developing a problem.
“I’m doing a lot better now since I stopped drinking about four months ago when my mother died,” Tyler told the magazine.
“When she got sick in 2009 I started drinking every night because I couldn’t sleep — every night up to a couple of months ago. I never had a problem but I certainly was on way to having one.”
“I’d have me a nice big glass of Hennessy and I would sleep through the night. It was President Obama’s visit to my studio, I don’t know what happened there, but when he came everything became clear.”
“I just kind of came out of a haze. It was like, ‘Wake up, kid. You know life is still going on. I know you miss her, I know you care but wake up. Life is still going on.’”
“I swear the day after he left was the day I just said I am going to sleep without it.”
