Tyler Perry’s nephew hangs himself in prison… family kicks

Tyler Perry’s nephew appears to have killed himself behind bars — but the answer officials are giving the family doesn’t have them convinced it wasn’t foul play.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … the filmmaker’s 26-year-old nephew, Gavin Porter, was found dead in his cell Tuesday night at a prison facility near St. Helena Parish in Louisiana.

It was reported by the prison officials he had hanged himself with a bedsheet while in solitary confinement.

The officials told the fam Gavin had gotten into a fight with another inmate over the weekend and was placed in solitary. Around 6 PM, guards checked on Gavin and found nothing of concern.

TMZ sources say guards came back at 8 PM Tuesday and found Gavin dead. He had hung himself with bedsheets.

The family has been notified there’s no foul play in the death — but TMZ sources say Gavin’s family isn’t necessarily buying the story.

Gavin was arrested for shooting and killing his biological father back in 2016 — in front of his mother after cops say an argument erupted between the two.

He plead no contest to manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years.
