Less than a day after the family of a slain single mother of four launched a fundraising appeal, actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry has lent his support.

News outlets report Perry offered to take care of the family’s rent to stave off eviction, arrange for 45-year-old Tynesha Evans’ body to be flown to Wisconsin for burial and cover her 18-year-old daughter’s tuition at Spelman College so she doesn’t have to drop out.

Evans was killed Saturday morning outside a bank near Atlanta. Her boyfriend, 58-year-old Othniel Inniss, was arrested at the scene.

Evans was an author and a full-time health care worker. According to the family’s GoFundMe, two of her four children are still minors.

One of them, 14-year-old Shakemia Turner, called Perry “an angel on Earth.”

The daughters remembered their mother as being ‘the best thing’ they could ever have in life.

‘She was caring , funny…if I ever needed anything, I knew I could call her,’ Sharadiant said.

Shakemia called her mother her ‘rock’ who ‘pushed her to limits’ she never knew she could achieve.

Their GoFundMe account has raised more than $50,000 to help the family with expenses.

It’s unclear what led up to the shooting. Authorities are still investigating.
