Tyler Perry’s “midlife crisis” selfie has women shooting their shot

Tyler Perry‘s latest Instagram photo has the women swooning over him in the comments.

On Wednesday evening, the media mogul shared a mirror selfie of himself dressed in workout gear. 

“This is what a midlife crisis looks like,” Perry wrote. “I’m 51, single and wondering what the next chapter in my life will look like.”

The Emmy-winning director and writer — who shares a 6-year-old son named, Aman Tyler Perry with model Gelila Bekele — said no matter what the future may bring he will “walk with God, be the best father and man I can be, 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!”

In the posts’ comments, Perry received tons of encouraging words and prayer emojis from the likes of Mario Lopez, Stephanie Mills and model Eva Marcille, among others.  Meanwhile, some of Perry’s female fans saw this as the perfect opportunity to shoot their shot at the media mogul.

One fan wrote, “God sent me to tell you I’m your wife,” while another said, “Being single is your choice. You definitely don’t have to be!” “I’m ready to mingle @tylerperry ASAP!” wrote another.

One of the most hilarious responses was a nod to The Parkers, the cult classic series that ran from 1999-2004 on UPN, starring comedian Mo’Nique. 

“Mr. Perry let me be your Nikki Parker to your Professor [Stanley] Oglevee,” a fan wrote, referencing Mo’Nique’s character, who had a massive crush on her college professor.
