Tyler Perry lent Oprah Winfrey his car - then it broke down

Tyler Perry gave his good friend and creative collaborator Oprah Winfrey the keys to one of his rides - then it broke down.

We don't know more than that - Perry posted the sad tale on social media without elaboration.

"Nothing worse than loaning your car to a friend and that car breaks down, especially if that friend is Oprah," he lamented online.

She hasn't posted anything about it.

Winfrey - whose Atlanta-filmed HBO movie “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” is due out April 22 and whose OWN series “Greenleaf” films here - spends a good bit of time in Atlanta so here's hoping she was on her way quickly and safely.
