WATCH: Oprah Injured By Lifting Tyler Perry's Birthday Gift [VIDEO]
Tyler Perry's Gift to Oprah Became a Pain in the Neck -- And Then Some
While he was clearly well-intentioned, Tyler Perry's gift to help Oprah Winfrey celebrate her 59th birthday on Tuesday ended up causing her a lot of pain.
So, what could he possibly have sent that could cause an injury? A python? A rare breed of lion cub? A bunch of banana peels? Nope. Just some flowers. A LOT of flowers.
“I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion," Perry, who has a development deal at Winfrey's OWN, posted on Facebook. "Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry. :-( Next year I’m sending her one rose. :-)"
Evidently, Winfrey's not one to hold a grudge. She'd tweeted that she planned to spend her special day in her pajamas with her long time love, Steadman Graham, by her side. When the injury occurred, she just got a bonus day, as she posted, saying, "@tylerperry no need to feel bad, love the roses and got an extra day in bed. Can you say #icepack?"
