Tyler Perry is ready to let go of the iconic tough-talking grandmother he introduced to the world almost 20 years ago.

The 49-year-old actor opened up about saying goodbye to Madea — whom he portrays — during an interview on Bevy Smith’s SiriusXM show Bevelations on Monday.

When Smith asked Perry if he was retiring the character, the director laughed and said, “It’s time for me to kill that old bitch, I’m tired, man! I’m tired.”
