Moviemaker TYLER PERRY choked back tears on a recent OPRAH WINFREY SHOW taping as he recalled his abusive upbringing in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The actor/director went public about his awful youth for the first time in a series of posts and musings on his website last year (09) - and only now is he brave enough to talk about his brutal past.
In his interview with pal Winfrey, which will air in America on Wednesday (20Oct10), Perry struggled to compose himself as he talked about the day he "died" when he was first raped by a member of his family.
The mogul recalled being beaten and sexually abused by a male and a female relative - and how he once blacked out for three days.
And as the tears gave way to rage, Perry told Winfrey, "It's so disgusting."
The Why Did I Get Married? director, real name Emmitt Perry Jr., also opens up about his efforts to commit suicide when the abuse became too much for him to bear.
