Tyler Perry Donates $1 Million to Hurricane Harvey Relief, Including $250,000 to Joel Osteen's Church

Tyler Perry is getting involved with helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The mogul is donating $1 million to relief efforts, including $250,000 to Pastor Joel Osteen’s church and another $250,000 to Beyoncé’s pastor. The other $500,000 has yet to be designated.

“I know that there’s been some controversy about Joel Osteen and him not opening the doors of the church,” Tyler Perry said. “Joel and Victoria are amazing people — there’s no way that they would lock people out of the church or not let people seek shelter.”

“There were some safety concerns, and I spoke to them on the phone, and it all made perfect sense to me,” he continued. “So, before you just run and judge someone real quick, you need to know the whole circumstances.”
