Tyler Perry is helping an Atlanta mother who is grieving over the deaths of her 15-month-old twins after, authorities say, their father left them in a hot car.

Breal Ellis' twins, Alaynah and Ariel North, died last week after police say Asa North left them in a car after he had allegedly been drinking. According to reports, North tried to revive the twins by placing them in the water of a kiddie pool. In an interview with WSBTV, Ellis said her children didn't deserve to die.

“I was with them every day and the one day I left … I just want to tell them I’m sorry. They didn’t deserve to die like that or to die, period, but I know they’re in heaven.”

GoFundMe page was set up to help Ellis with funeral expenses, but Perry stepped up and offered to pay for the funeral.
