Gorilla tape and tubeless

Iím extremely new to tubeless. I have tubeless tires and wheels in my trek Boone. The rear tire needed replaced so I got a new tire. The yellow rim tape looked pretty beat up so I tore that off.

Used gorilla tape. 1 layer. Initially I thought it was the valve. But Iíve tried multiple types and configurations. But the same steady leak coming from the weep hole and valve stem hole.

My my question is, can gorilla tape porforations hold higher pressures like 50+ psi without leaking. Or does gorilla tape only work for ghetto tubeless using an inner tube?

Because after trying everything I feel like it has to be gorilla tape. Air leaking through the perfs over the spoke holes into the center channel.
