Tyler Perry Announces Mother's Death

Tyler Perry turned to his website Tuesday to announce the death of his mother. Willie Maxine Perry was 64.

Maxine worked as pre-school teacher in New Orleans.

Perry, 40, simply posted his mother's full name, birth date and the date of her death with a photo of the two at the L.A. premiere of "Madea's Family Reunion" in 2006.

"Thank you for all your prayers," he wrote.

In October, the actor/director/producer opened up about his abusive childhood and revealed his mother also suffered abuse.
