Actor Tyler Lepley Says He Nor Tyler Perry Are Gay As He Addresses Rumors About His Sexuality, “I Know Tyler Personally & He’s Not Gay”
‘P-Valley’ Star Tyler Lepley is setting the record straight when it comes to his sexuality. The 33-year-old actor recently did an interview with Angela Yee’s Lip Service, where he discussed rumors of him being gay as well as rumors of director/producer Tyler Perry. Lepley stars in Tyler Perry’s prime time soap opera, “The Have and The Have Nots”. He explains that the rumors began when he started working for Tyler Perry.
“I remember when I first started out, I was seeing it here and there. For whatever reason, people were associating it with my first show. I came out on a Tyler Perry show and for whatever reason he gets a rap like that and I know Tyler [Perry] personally and he’s not gay. I was seen around him and all of a sudden ‘he’s rubbing off on me’ and people felt like I was gay or something like that.”
Tyler Leplay then reflected on another time when fans questioned his sexuality.
“I had done something while I was on the set of ‘P-Valley’, maybe I was with Clifford or I think I was taking a picture with Alphonse who plays Little Murda, and people started off with the gay thing again. –I think if you have a space that people cant figure out, they can just create a judgement.”
