Tyler Perry is now a BILLIONAIRE!Tyler Perry’s billion-dollar empire has landed him on the cover of Forbes magazine.
The publication took an in-depth look at Tyler Perry’s career and went behind the scenes with the mogul who picked up several films and TV shows after shutting down during the pandemic.
Forbes reports Perry has earned more than $1.4 billion since 2005, with a fortune that includes homes, planes, and his mega-production studio in Georgia.
The 330-acre facility is on a portion of the former Fort McPherson U.S. Army Base. Not only does Perry produce his own content, but several blockbusters including “First Man” and “Bad Boys For Life” were filmed in the soundstages at Tyler Perry Studios.
Perry is a self-made visionary who has created 22 feature films, over 20 stage plays, 13 television shows, and two New York Times bestselling books.
But outside of creating TV shows, films, and plays that have generated more than $2 billion to date, Perry has constantly supported various civil rights causes and has inspired thousands with his random acts of kindness.
The publication notes Perry’s inspiring story of experiencing homelessness to rising into one of this generation’s most successful filmmakers.
“I love when people say you come from ‘humble beginnings,’ ” Perry told Forbes. “[It] means you were poor as hell.” It also makes success sweeter. “Ownership,” he adds, “changes everything.”
We salute Tyler Perry for who he is and all he has done for the culture!
