Tiffany Haddish now has the car of her dreams, thanks to Tyler Perry.
Over the weekend, the breakout comedy star shared videos and pictures of the brand-new blue Tesla X that the super-star producer purchased for her.
Starting sticker price is around $80,000, and a fully loaded model can run upwards of $163,000, according to Business Insider.
“When I tell you I cried so hard,” Haddish, 38, quipped in the caption. “1st off a man has never bought me a car out right. I have always had to make payments. This was just out of the kindness of his heart and probably tired of me talking about it all the time.”
In December, Haddish told Ellen DeGeneres that buying a Tesla was a goal of hers. So DeGeneres said she was getting her a rental Tesla to drive for the week. But as Haddish explained, that never panned out.
Perry explained that he bought the car for the rising star because he understands what it’s like to worry about money at the start of a career.
“What I’ve learned is that it’s OK to spend a little bit,” he said. “I wanted to gift this to you and say you deserve it and I’m excited for you.”
So I got this message from my friend and Big Brother @tylerperry a week ago. When I tell you I cried so hard. I almost couldn’t believe it. 1st off a man has never bought me a car out right. I have always had to make payments. This was just out the kindness of his heart And probably tired of me talking about it all the time and I didn’t have to do anything for it but a Great job in our New Movie Nobody’s Fool. Thank God for kind people that want to spread happiness. I am now on my way to see if this is Really! Cause I am still waiting on the one @theellenshow said they would let me use for a week. #sheready #Tesla #Nobody’sFool #thelastblackunicorn
