Tyler Perry will certainly be making Santa’s “nice” list this year—the Vice actor has reportedly paid off the layaway balances at two Atlanta-area Walmarts.
TMZ reports the film director has picked up the tabs at two superstores to cover the cost of outstanding layaway items for customers. Perry reportedly spent $178k at one store in Atlanta and another $256k at a store in the nearby suburb of Douglasville. Customers will simply have to pay only 1 cent during pickup to walk away with their items.
Perry has been in a generous mind state all year. The “Madea” creator gifted Tiffany Haddish with a Tesla in July, offered Geoffrey Owens a role on The Haves and the Have Nots in September and purchased a home for a friend’s sick mother shortly thereafter.
