Tyler Perry’s spending habits are the talk of Atlanta. The incredibly successful film-maker’s movies are non-union, but he keeps buying larger and more extravagant houses – in spite of the fact that he’s single. Our friend The Real Estalker has dubbed him a “real estate size queen.” (And he always seemed like such a modest, down-to-earth guy.) He’s in the process of unloading his 8800 sq ft LA house for 13 million, and his 17,000 sq ft Atlanta mansion for $3,650.000. Tyler bought a 58 acre Atlanta estate (with an 18 hole golf course, a garage for forty cars, and a band shell) and DEMOLISHED the monstrous 36,000 sq ft house so he could build a BIGGER house! (above) What does one man DO in a house the size of Macy’s in New York? Tyler insists God gave him all this because he “believes,” but we think his moviemaking skills had more to do with it.

    Queen, eh? isn’t Mr Perry on the downlow? I guess it’s his money he can do what he wants. better to buy/build homes with the cash than snort it like lots of celebs do. he’s creating lots of jobs, right?

    If you’re going to live in the closet, it should be roomy.

    You can do with your money what you want, but sometimes it looks very silly what you buy. Do you really need a house this size when it’s only you?

    God gave it to him because he believes? God, what a twit!

    Stars like him who thank God for what they possess must have an exclusive celeb-only version of the Bible the rest of us don’t, cause last time I read mine, it instructed ‘believers’ to deny themselves, give what they have to the poor, and come follow Him. This isn’t intended as a sermon, just an observation on the facility with which celebs, politicians, and journalists of the Fox News variety nonchalantly dismiss Bible basics out-of-hand in laying claim to being among His followers. Hypocrisy is the new true religion apparently.

    Todd, couldn’t agree with you more.

    As far as I am concerned the twisted approach to “religion” and religious philosophy – whether the neo-con Christianity you so succinctly sum up or the weird New Age philosophy espoused by the likes of Oprah – are the greatest indicators that humanity is in deep deep trouble.

    I believe we need Oprah-kinds to expose who-is-who. Without the dark we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the light. people always were and always will fall for money traps and false religions, especially if the two are combined.

    I remember reading that this spring, Oprah and Tyler went to Italy for 3 or 4 weeks. They went to Imalfi, Venice, Pisa. There were the usual pics,(Enquirer and Star) so this is not a rumor. As to Tyler’s house, this just boggles the mind. I betcha Tyler was a cute chubby cheek baby.

    Good point Meg. But the sound of all the sheep saying their false-matras can be deafening.

    I like this house with its 4 separate wings and common area. If things go bad you can renovate it into a nursing home or something.

    So did Evander Holyfield, so did Mike Tyson,so did many others…for a while!

    forgot…Whitney Houston too. Seems to be a pattern here isn’t it!

    Yeah, Yeah, Strom, we get it. White men can’t jump, but black men can’t keep hold of their money. It is not like you have uncovered one of life’s great secrets. You are just singing the same tune of thousands of racists before you, and thousands after.

    Keep enabling THEM while the Asians and Hispanics regulate THEM to 3rd world status with chips on shoulders.

    His movies are NON UNION????!!!! How does he get away with that? Does he pay union wages?

    Whoever wrote this article has no idea what their talking about.

    First of all the house shown in the picture is the house Perry currently lives in. He built that house and moved in in 2009. The huge estate with the golf course he recently bought has NOT been demolished yet. Only last week he started selling the contents of that house. It will be many months before that house is torn down and construction started on a new home.

    So get your facts straight before you start talking about things you obviously know nothing about.

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
