A humanitarian, social activist, model, writer, and filmmaker, the beautiful Ethiopian Gelila Bekele is a perfect blend of beauty, intellect, and social responsibility. As a model, she graced the front pages of prominent magazines such as Essence, Allure and Marie Claire. She is still relevant and in demand in the fashion world.

Gelila Bekele was praised for her tireless efforts to tell Ethiopian history in the right way. Her aim is to bring out the rich cultural heritage of her people while meeting her quota in her efforts to improve the living standards of the Ethiopian people. To this end, Gelila Bekele has written a book and also made a short film; both works have received critical acclaim. She is also committed to the empowerment and emancipation of women. She actively participated in the “Women’s March” in Washington DC and continued to work for the education of Ethiopian girls. Gelila is a mother and a faithful wife, which (in my opinion) makes her a superwoman whose character and achievements should be imitated by female youth around the world.

Bio, Age

The 31-year-old Ethiopian epitome of beauty was born on 4 September 1986 in the beautiful city of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia and of course the cultural and commercial center. It is assumed that she spent part of her childhood in Addis Ababa, but due to her career as a model, she eventually lived in Europe and America. Not much is known about her educational background or qualifications, but we do know that she started professional modeling in 2006 at the rather early age of 20. This was made possible by a modeling agency called Ford Models, which already became aware of her modeling potential in Ethiopia and took her heroics with them to Paris and New York.

Gelila was later featured in several premium magazines and had endorsement agreements with prominent brands such as Levi’s, Diesel, Michael Kors, H&M, Tory Burch, Anna Sui, Pinko, L’oreal, Colgate and Pantene. The supermodel is currently associated with the following model agencies: Model Management (New York), Premium Models (Paris), and W360 (New York).

She can also boast some filmographic credits. In 2009 she appeared alongside Dino Antoniou in a film entitled Full. As already mentioned, Gelila is a filmmaker and a certified one at that. In 2015 she released her first and so far the only film entitled May: Life is not Honey” is a short film that addresses the global problem of water shortage.

Guzo

In 2016 Gelila would publish a book entitled Guzo. The book is an exposé of the way of life, culture, religious beliefs, professions, traditions, and customs of the six main tribes in Ethiopia. These tribes include the Hamar tribe, the Tigray tribe, the Afar tribe, the Raya tribe, the Harrar tribe, and the Lasta Lalibela tribe. The book of Gelila contains exquisite photographs that gracefully depict the seductive nature of these tribes. The book has received several positive reviews.

Parents, Son, Husband, Tyler Perry

Currently, there is no information about Gelila’s parents, but it can be assumed that they are of Ethiopian descent. However, we do know that she has a stepsister named Anna Wrossetti, who happens to be younger than Gelila and has been seen with the model in some social media articles.

Gelila Bekele has never been married, although she has a son with her long time boyfriend Tyler Perry. Tyler Perry was born on September 13, 1969, and is an American actor, comedian, filmmaker, writer, and songwriter. He is popular for his role as Madea Simmons. Madea is a screen character who was created and portrayed by him in several sequels of Madea films. The sequels were also produced and directed by Tyler Perry.

Most of Tyler Perry’s works reflect the culture of the Black Church and have since made millions of dollars at the box office. He is one of the most successful African-American entertainers of all time and was once recognized by Forbes as the highest-paid man in the entertainment industry, earning $130 million between May 2010 and May 2011.

Some of his filmographic accomplishments include Diary of a Mad Black Woman (2005), which he wrote, produced and played the roles of Madea/Joe/Brian; Madea’s Family Reunion (2006), where he played the role of Madea/Joe/Brian and was also the author, director, and producer of the film. He wrote, directed and also produced Daddy’s Little Girls (2007) starring Edris Elba and Gabriele Union, and wrote, produced and directed the American romantic comedy-drama Meet the Browns (2008) starring Angela Bassett, Rick Fox and Tyler Perry himself.

Gelila Bekele’s Relationship With Tyler Perry

Gelila Bekele met Tyler Perry in 2009 and they have been together ever since. For reasons best known to them, the couple decided not to marry. However, they live together and do virtually everything that married couples do. On 30 November 2014, Gelila and Tyler were blessed with a bouncing little boy named Aman Tyler Perry.

Gelila and Tyler decided to keep their son away from social media and even more from the public eye. They feel that Aman is not popular and should not be concerned with the control and publicity of social media that her celebrity status might bring until he is old enough to make his own decisions. The couple even went so far as to build a church similar to the one Tyler’s mother, the late Willie Maxine Perry, attended during his lifetime. This was done in their backyard at Aman’s baptism to keep him away from the press.

Tyler has explicitly stated that he is a Christian and believes the principles of the Bible to be sacrosanct. However, he has been criticized by Christian society for not making an honest woman out of Gelila. Some people have questioned both his faith and his sexuality as a result of his decision not to lead Gelila to the altar. Nevertheless, we believe that the couple is in the best position to make this decision themselves and that they should not be forced to marry. Whenever they decide to marry, we will support them with the beats of our keyboard.

Net worth

Bekele has kept her net assets a little hidden. But we believe that she is doing well financially because she was able to land sponsorship contracts during her modeling career. Nonetheless, some reports put the total assets of her and her partner Tyler at a staggering $600 million. This explains why the couple can afford a spacious house in Beverly Hills, California for $14.5 million and also owns a Rolls Royce and a private jet worth $125 million. Gelila and Tyler are renowned humanitarian philanthropists and have donated millions of dollars to charity.
