Tyler Perry Says He's Ready To 'Kill Off' Madea

In 2019, it will officially be twenty years since Perry began playing dress-up as Madea on stage.

As Tyler Perry said on SiriusXM radio, "I'm happy to kill that old b-".

The New Orleans-born and bred box office baron said that he was already planned how he will get rid of his most famous character. The play was directed and written by Perry, who also starred in the play and portrayed the fictional character. There is one good reason why Perry is planning Madea's demise.

After amassing $500M worldwide starring as Mabel Earlene "Madea" Simmons in 10 films and 10 plays, Tyler Perry has made a decision to bid farewell to the fictional 87-year-old grandmother-of-five for good. I just don't want to be her age, playing her, " Perry said.

Asked why he was finally ready to say goodbye to a character he's been playing for almost 20 years, Perry replied, "I just don't want to be her age playing her". In addition, Perry will also kickoff a farewell stage play tour. I'm a lover of words, photography, books, travel, animals and The Ohio State Buckeyes.
