I'm sure Tyler Perry will be stepping away from the spotlight for a bit to deal with a family tragedy. His 26-year-old nephew, Gavin Porter. According to TMZ, Gavin hanged himself Tuesday night in a prison facility in Louisiana. Gavin was in solitary confinement after fighting with another inmate. Gavin was in prison after shooting and killing his biological dad in front of Gavin's mom back in 2016. He was sentenced to 20 years. Gavin used a bedsheet to hang himself. When his mother was alerted of the suicide, they explained what happened, and said there was no foul play, however, the family doesn't believe it.
