Tyler Perry donates $100,000 to defense fund of Breonna Taylor's boyfriend
Tyler Perry has donated $100,000 to the legal defense fund of Breonna Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, after police fatally shot Taylor inside her apartment earlier this year. One of the Louisville Police Department officers who was wounded during the shooting of the 26-year-old Black emergency medical technician is suing Walker.
On Sunday, the entertainment mogul made four separate donations totaling $100,000 on a GoFundMe page that was setup to raise funds for Walker's legal expenses in his defense against Officer Jonathan Mattingly, and related litigation. The fundraiser, which was started in November, has more than $105,000 in donations — surpassing the original goal of $100,000.
