Tyler Perry pays off layaway items at 2 Georgia Walmart stores

Though the movie star tried to do the good deed anonymously, he says that unforeseen circumstances revealed him as the Secret Santa.

Between the two stores, Perry ended up paying for $432,635 worth of layaways.

According to TMZ, sources close to the generous situation explained that Perry wrote a couple of "big checks" to two Atlanta area Walmart stores on Thursday to cover the cost of any outstanding layaway items that were registered.

"I know it's hard times, everyone's struggling and I'm just really, really grateful to be able to be in a position to this".

Perry's gesture applied to layaways that were already in the stores as of 9:30 a.m. local time on December 6.

This trip is a first for McClain and Saint-Jacques, while Kononenko will feel at home - it's his fourth expedition to the ISS. But most importantly, this is the crew that will handle the first flight tests for NASA's Commercial Crew program.

For those who don't know, a layaway lets a customer reserve a product at a store and pay for it over time. "So, Merry Christmas to everybody".

In a social media video, Perry said Thursday he meant to do the good deed anonymously, "but nothing stays secret these days". You went above and beyond.

Perry was inspired to join in the spirit of giving this holiday season after seeing "Good Morning America's" story on New Orleans Saints owner Gayle Benson.

A Walmart manager at the Douglasville location told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that while she'd seen good samaritans pay off the occasional account, she'd never seen anyone pay off the entire department in one go.
