Tyler Perry won’t be making your life easier with cash handouts

Tyler Perry’s not your sugar daddy, nor anybody else’s.

The prolific actor-director-producer posted a video earlier this week warning of online scams in which he purportedly will be handing out lots and lots and lots of cash money.

Perry, 48, didn’t waste time in getting his message across in the one-minute vid. “I am not giving away anything on Facebook. I am not giving away any money,” he said.

Excuse me while I cancel my two-week, all-expenses-paid Maui vacation.

Perry also urged viewers to spread his message by sharing the video, which is titled “Don’t Fall For Scams.” The “Madea” filmmaker was unable to name any names, but said con artists have been aggressively trying to obtain personal information from unsuspecting people through fake giveaways.

“Do not give them anything. I don’t know who they are, but every day we have to get 10, 20, 30 of those things shut down on Facebook,” he said. “I am not giving away anything. It’s Tyler Perry, I’m not giving away anything.”

Bye-bye, brand-new, shiny Tesla.

Speaking of Tesla, Perry recently gifted Tiffany Haddish with one of the electric cars, according to the Daily Mail. Haddish, the star of Perry’s upcoming “Nobody’s Fool,” said Perry’s gesture came “out of the kindness of his heart.”

He also pledged $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. But in the video, Perry made it clear that that generosity won’t soon be extended to mass levels.

“Listen, in my life I am a giver, I give a lot of things to a lot of people, to a lot of employees, random things, cars, houses, I do,” he said.
