Who Has Baby Money? Tyler Perry Named Highest Paid Man in Hollywood

September 14, 2011  |  

What do you call a man who makes $130 million in a year? A BALLER. And that’s the nickname you can give filmmaker Tyler Perry, who also wears writer, actor, producer and author hats. Perry topped other big, popular earners like Simon Cowell (and we know he makes racks on racks on racks for real), Steven Spielberg, and Leonardo DiCaprio. According to Forbes, you can blame Perry’s huge figure on the five films he’s managed to put out in less than two years, his television shows (and a new one on the way), and his new film role in the upcoming movie, I, Alex Cross. So there you have it people, say what you want about Perry’s work but he’s making more money than some of us will ever get to see. And if the alleged television channel he has in the works actually happens, we can bet he’ll be at the top of this list on the regular. What a long way this guy has come!  So…you all know Tyler Perry is my cousin right? Kidding!
