Tyler Perry plans to kill off his Madea character in 2019! May she RIP

Mabel Earlene “Madea” Simmons will die next year, according to Tyler Perry who plans to kill off the feisty grandmama character who helped make him famous in plays and movies.

Tyler announced his plan to kill off Madea during an interview on Sirius XM radio.

He said he filmed Madea’s funeral 2 years ago, and he’s finally able to let her go.

The actor, director and playwright said he will hold Madea’s funeral next year to allow her fans time to mourn her passing. He didn’t say how he plans to end Madea’s life.

Madea is a lawless senior citizen with unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits. She had a lengthy criminal record dating back to age 9 that included charges for assault with a deadly weapon, attempted murder and vehicle theft.

Plus, Tyler said he didn’t want to grow older than his famous character, who is 87.

“I just don’t want to be her age playing her,” said Tyler, who at 49 is still a relatively young man.

It will be 20 years since Tyler donned a dress, wig, padding, and makeup to play his signature character on stage.

The final film franchise, featuring Madea’s funeral, will open in theaters in 2019.
