Tyler Perry’s got something else to take ownership of … he’s now a billionaire!!!
Tyler’s net worth just jumped and made him the newest official member of the 3-comma club, according to a new Forbes report detailing his rise from being “poor as hell” to rich and powerful.
The numbers are in … here’s a breakdown of how Forbes is calculating Tyler’s milestone net worth:
— $320 million for his entire library of movies, TV shows, plays, etc., as he owns 100% of the content he’s created
— $300 million in cash and investments
— $280 million for Tyler Perry Studios, which sits on 330 acres in Georgia
— $60 million for his equity stake in BET+, the streaming service that debuted last year.
— $40 million in homes and toys
Add it all up … and that’s a cool $1 billion. Not bad for a guy who once slept in his car.
