Tyler Perry Is Officially A Billionaire

A once homeless Tyler Perry is now officially a billionaire, according to Forbes.  The media mogul has earned $1.4 billion in pre-tax income since 2005, so they now estimate his net worth is $1 billion. If you’re curious what Tyler buys with his epic money, he invests in a lot of properties. He recently bought homes in Wyoming, Atlanta, New York and LA.  “I love when people say you come from ‘humble beginnings.’  It means you were poor as hell,” said Perry, who is also set to receive the Governors Award at the 2020 Emmy Awards on September 20th. One of his biggest income generators is Tyler Perry Studios: “I own the lights. I own the sets. So that’s where the difference is. Because I own everything, my returns are higher.”
