Hollywood Star Tyler Perry Officially Confirmed As The Latest American Billionaire
Hollywood actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry has joined the billion-dollar gang.
A new Forbes report has revealed that Perry’s net worth has seen an increase, making him the latest American billionaire, detailing his rise from being “poor as hell” to rich and powerful.
According to the breakdown of how the magazine calculated the thespian’s net worth, he has raked in $320 million for his entire collection of movies, TV shows, plays, etc. (he owns 100% of the content he has created).
Perry has also made $300 million in cash and investments, $280 million for Tyler Perry Studios (which sits on 330 acres of land in Georgia), $60 million for his equity stake in BET + (the streaming service that debuted last year), and $40 million in homes and ‘toys’.
When the above sums are added up, it amounts to a cool $1 billion, an impressive feat for a dude who used to sleep in his car as he couldn’t afford rent.
