Tyler Perry pays off $400K of lay­aways

The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

AT­LANTA — Cus­tomers at two sub­ur­ban At­lanta Wal­mart stores re­ceived a hol­i­day sur­prise when they found out ac­tor Tyler Perry had paid for their lay­away items.

Perry, who in­tended the gift to be anony­mous, con­firmed the move in a video posted

Thurs­day to

Twit­ter.

He spent

$434,000 on items at a Wal­mart in East Point and an­other store in Dou­glasville. That cov­ered all but one penny of the bal­ances.

In the post, Tyler said cus­tomers only had to pay one cent to get their pur­chases. He says he knows peo­ple are strug­gling and he’s just “re­ally, re­ally grate­ful to be able to be in a po­si­tion to do this.”
