Tyler Perry, an American actor and producer, has opened up on his experience with the midlife crisis.
Midlife crisis is a transition of identity and self-confidence that can occur in middle-aged individuals (age 45 to 65).
The phenomenon is described as a psychological crisis brought about by events that highlight a person’s growing age, inevitable mortality, a possible lack of accomplishments in life, or a feeling of having done everything.
This may cause feelings of depression, remorse, high levels of anxiety, and a possible desire to attain youthfulness.
Perry, who is famed for ‘Acrimony’, a 2018 psychological thriller movie, tweeted on Thursday that he’s not sure of what’s next for him.
“This is what a midlife crisis looks like. I’m 51, single, and wondering what the next chapter in my life will look like. Whatever it looks like I’m going to walk with God, be the best father and man I can be,” the filmmaker, who appears to be in a reflective mood, wrote.
“Hold my head up high, and try to look my best doing it!! In a world with so much sadness, please try and stay in the good! Merry Christmas and let’s look forward to 2021 bringing us peace!”

Perry’s comment on being single confirms rumours that he might have split from Gelila Bekele, his long-term girlfriend, with who he shares a six-year-old son.
It also comes months after Forbes reported that he had grown to officially attain billionaire status.
Following the net worth boom, the Madea’s Family Reunion star now has $320 million for his movies, TV shows, plays, and other content.
He’s worth $300 million in cash and investments; $280 million for his studio, which sits on 330 acres in Georgia; $60 million for his stake in the BET+; and $40 million in homes and toys, all of which amount to $1 billion.
