Tyler Lepley Married, Parents, Siblings, Net Worth

Actor Tyler Lepley is best known among the audience for portraying the character Benny Young in the hit show, Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots. Throughout the show's journey since its debut in 2013, viewers are well acquainted with his onscreen love affairs, especially with another leading character Veronica Harrington.

As a result, many have been questioning if the actor's life offscreen, too, is filled with romantic stints. But, while the answers might not be as expected by the fans, it turns out that there is still a lot the artist had going on in his life.

Married Or Gay?

Till today, Tyler has managed to stay mum about the information on his dating & married life. Due to such privacy, he has also been subjected to gay rumors. 

But, speculations about his sexuality wasn't the only thing that captured people's interest.

While it's unlikely that he has strayed away from maintaining a stable relationship, there is a probability that he failed in doing so. Moreover, few facts and hints suggested that the artist's past girlfriends had a hard time keeping up with his anger management issues. In his own words, he had previously stated,

"I’m wired to snap, not in a bad way, but I have a temper and that’s not the way you’re supposed to handle situations. I’m not a dictator, so if things don’t go my way, that doesn’t give me the right to be a crab apple or be rude to someone. I caught myself in certain situations where I wasn’t in control of what I was feeling and therapy helped me to gain that control."

Yes, it turns out that he had some major anger issues in the past and had been to a therapy session to control it. So, it's apparent that these issues didn't help in his relationship at all.
