Tyler Perry says he was impressed with Bobbi Kristina’s acting chops and says fans are in for a surprise when his TV show For Better or Worse hits the airwaves this fall.
The Madea actor says while he wasn’t sure what to expect he was quickly surprised by her demeanor on set.
“I’m so proud of her because she said she wanted to act and I had a feeling she could but I wasn’t sure until she hit the set. The first couple of shows she did, she had very few lines because I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, but the kid showed up and blew my mind. She definitely has it. She’s a definite actor, and she can go as far as she wants to go in the business.”
Tyler said he decided to address rumors of Bobbi Kris acting out on set because, “What I’ve noticed is that when these kind of rumors start, the best thing to do is to immediately go after them.”
“What I want more than anything for her is to have a moment of peace to herself, to grieve, to go through what she needs to go through without the lies, without the rumors, without all the horrible things that are being said,” he added. “That’s very important to me.”
Tyler is currently shooting his guest appearance for the upcoming season of America’s Next Top Model with pal Tyra Banks and dished on the new gig in the video below.
