Keke Palmer Reveals That Tyler Perry Had Offered To Pay For Dermatologist Treatments For Her As A Kid!

Cousins!

Keke Palmer is becoming more transparent with fans and the overall public eye upon her journey with acne!

As we previously reported the multitalented millennial took to social media in November to speak on her diagnosis with PCOS, her family history and overall battle with intensified skin trauma from a young age.

Within a recent interview with People Keke revealed that media giant #TylerPerry had offered to pay for a dermatologist for her when she was only 14 years old.

“I remember when I was 14 and Tyler Perry pulled my mom aside at the NAACP awards and literally said, ‘I would pay for her to go to a dermatologist, to the best dermatologist, to help her with her skin,” says Keke.

“So what I’ve dealt with, with my skin, has been so traumatic and big that people have literally reached into their own pockets to help me.”

“I’m grateful to Tyler Perry to this day. I don’t tell many people that story, but I was so grateful to him for helping me because he had the resources and he was paying it forward.”

She continues, “And he was giving me that kind of first introduction to doing that personal care and knowing that I don’t have to live like that. If there’s something I want to improve about myself, there are people that can help me with that.”

Since revealing her diagnosis Keke has utilized her platform to advocate for Black men and woman to research and gain knowledge of their families medical history while speaking up for themselves when medical officials try to undermine them.
