Tyler Perry is receiving a little support with his claim that he was racially profiled by Atlanta police this week. A man named Malik Kadeem claims he witnessed the incident, and tells TMZ that the two officers appeared to get upset when Perry didn’t roll down his window immediately after he was asked. Kadeem adds that the officers were giving the movie mogul a “hard time” until an African-American officer recognized Perry and took control of the situation. Perry has alleged that he was pulled over by police after making an illegal turn, and harassed by two white officers. Read More »
According to CourtneyLuv, Tyler Perry is one of the latest victims of racial profiling. It is sad that police are insecure within and play the nice car let me stop him/her game. I bet the officers who stopped him thought that they were doing a â€œgood deedâ€ for the good ole’ boy system.
Note from Tylerâ€™s page
A few days before President Obama was supposed to speak at my studio, I was leaving the studio, headed to the airport. Most times when I leave the studio I have an unmarked escort. Other times I constantly check in my rearview mirror to be sure that Iâ€™m not being followed. Itâ€™s a safety precaution that my security team taught me. As I got to an intersection, I made a left turn from the right lane and was pulled over by two police officers. I pulled the car over and put it in park. Then, I let the window down and sat in the car waiting for the officer. The officer came up to the driverâ€™s door and said that I made an illegal turn. I said, â€œI signaled to get into the turning lane, then made the turn because I have to be sure Iâ€™m not being followed.â€Read more after the heartbeat He said, â€œwhy do you think someone would be following you?â€ Read More »

mattress money laying around then you may have been able to eyewitness Barack Obama our President on Greenbriar Parkway at Tyler Perry Studios.

I thought you might like this video where Barack Obama gave it up for “Tyler Perry” a man who 12 years ago was homeless but never gave up on his dream.

Black people! Why must we continuously take 3 steps forward and then 10 steps back. Ceelo is my homie but you know I guess this was a case of “Keeping it Real Going Wrong”. You know how when you were little and your parents had company & you had to put on your good clothes and be on your best behavior or you knew you was gonna get that whippen? Well, I think Ceelo forgot the Press was gonna give him that Whippen for using bad language when Tyler Perry had company, Good Company “President Barack Obama”. I guess Ceelo Green was having a Bobby Brown Moment. Check out the clip below. Notice mid-way during the song Ceelo felt a certain kinda way and switched to the Pg-version and then switched back.

Demetria McKinney actress on “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” attends the 43rd Annual NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles
Demetria McKinney was looking very
mouth-watering striking as she turned heads up and down the red carpet wearing a “Maria Harper” designer original Design. I see someone has definitely been going to the gym. I see you Kirk Franklin. (I wonder if he was thinking about his smile song). Tyler Perry’s House of Payne BEAT OUT BET’s “The Game” in the Best Sitcom Category taking home the NAACP Image Award. For those of you who don’t recognize all that sexy in Yellow. Demetria McKinney plays Janine on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne (yes the only relation I see to her in this photo to crack is that it’s true Black Don’t Crack). Congrats DeeDee (my new homey). Great job s/o to her publicist Jonell PR.
Watching the trailer to Tyler Perry’s new movie “Good Deeds” made me tear up! That’s right a Grown A## Man tears up at times. But to hear via TMZ that Tyler Perry rushed to the LA hospital when he heard the news about Whitney Houston & offered her family his private jet to fly her body back….WOW! I’m speechless! You hear about celebrities pulling together and most of the time it’s for some fund raiser to make someone else more rich but this was truly a Good Deed for real. No, Tyler’s media camp is not paying me to promote his new movie! Good people coming through at the right time is very uncommon now. My heart goes out to Ms Cissy Houston. According to the AJC the funeral is set to take place Friday or Sat in NJ not Atlanta. The Rev Jesse Jackson will conduct the sermon. We have truly lost an angel, but I think now heaven will give Whitney her wings. RIP Whitney Houston. Thank God for people like Mr. Tyler Perry. I’m speechless.
