Tyler Perry and his longtime girlfriend Gelila Bekele have reportedly split - and Tyler's male and female followers are shooting their shots at him on social media.

Tyler made the announcement on Instagram, informing his followers that he is 51 and single after apparently breaking up with the mother of his only child.

The famed playwright shared a selfie showing off his muscular bawdy. He captioned the image:

"This is what a midlife crisis looks like. I'm 51, single and wondering what the next chapter in my life will look like. Whatever it looks like I'm going to walk with God, be the best father and man I can be, hold my head up high, and try to look my best doing it!! In a world with so much sadness, please try and stay in the good! Merry Christmas and let’s look forward to 2021 bringing us peace!"

It wasn't long before Tyler's inbox was flooded with messages from his male and female followers offering to keep him company on cold nights in Georgia.

Tyler has been plagued by ghey rumors for his entire career.

One IG user wrote: "Loving the beard now let's work together #GiveMeAShot you wont be disappointed."

Another user wrote: "There are only about a billion women who would love to change your relationship status! Me included Mr Perry. Come visit Westwego LA."

And a hunky male follower wrote: "Pick me."
