Karla also claims she’s the biological mother of the actor’s 3-year-old son. “Though I don’t know how that would be possible since I didn’t donate any eggs to a clinic,” she admits. Karla’s adult daughters, Kelly and Kourtney, insist their mom has been conned
by an internet catfish who’s been impersonating Perry. They claim that over time, Karla has given nearly $100,000 away to her catfish; leaving her nearly broke.
“I am not doing well financially right now,” admits Karla, who says she doesn’t care if she gets her money back. Claiming she once worked for the Department of Homeland Security, Karla says she knows a scam when she sees one. “Do I believe I’m being scammed? No, I don’t believe I’m being scammed. My love for Tyler Perry is sincere, is real, and I mean that.”
