MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that actor/director Tyler Perry is selling his $6 million Atlanta mansion for a little over $3 million. Below are photos of Tyler’s home – which is on 11 acres of prime Atlanta real estate.
Now we ain’t trying to start no rumors. But why would a man as wealthy as Tyler be selling his home for a near 50% loss in this market. We’re just saying ….
HE AINT BROKE *** UP MTO. HE NEED TO SELL HALF OF THAT TV SHOW HE GOT IT'S SO NOT FUNNY...
gorgeous place! itmdoesnt mean hes having money trouble. nobody is buying houses right now so sellers r forced to lower the cost
I knew he was spending too much...
“He who scattered will also re-gather. Plan for the next “Black Exodus” to the land of our forefathers – the land of Israel. One.”
I hope he wasn't tryin' to impress and keep up wit da Joneses 'cause that's is just being Nicca-foolish!
50% LOSS.... NEGATIVE.... NOT BUYING IT MTO

DON’T REALLY CARE BUT W/E….. TIFF DIDN’T MEAN TO CALL U OUT WRONGFULLY.
SORRY LAMES BUT I WONT BE GOING BACK & FORTH WITH U ON HERE, NOT MY CUP OF
TEA///// ADIOS PUTAS!!!
Maybe he spread himself too thin opening that TV studio. Lots of overhead involved in that. You don't sell your dream home just to sell it. Common sense people.
You guys are too much. It is common knowledge that real estate has been hit badly by the economic crisis. All property values have gone down, it says nothing about money troubles etc.
Always trying to suggest people are broke or ***.
I guess nobody at MTO owns real estate.
say it aint so!
he still paid,he got another movie comming out on Feb 19. stop hating MTO
*** I'm just 2,999,999, ***,lol
doesn't mean he broke.
other m effers can't afford it!
That COON entertainment that he does only carries you so far.
The real estate market is not good so he doing what he has to do he ain't the one selling their house for less than it's worth there are people out here ever day that go through the same thing we just don't hear about them because they are not famous.
Take that 3 million and invest it into something more profitable. the market is horrible
He has Plenty $$$$ this means nothing ...
@allahuakbar...lol just a few pennies *** are you
duh...nobody is buying houses so u have to lower the cost..that doesnt mean he's broke..maybe he just doesnt wanna be in that big *** house by himself
Yeah thats too much house!! These people got KING AND QUEEN taste with no financial education what so ever!!
Tyler Perry isnt broke, trust me..
AFTER THE COMMENT ABOVE ME I DON'T HAVE TO SAY SHID! THANKS GIRL U PRETTY MUCH SUMMED IT UP!
That is probably the real value of that house and not the inflated price which the market asked a few years ago when he bought it. But you never know. Sometimes where there is smoke there could be fire.
Reacher #2 and counting....
This goes to show u that MTO doesn't now much about the recession. Real Estate sucks right now. People can't sell their houses for *** but they keep building all these new houses and condos every where, f_cking the economy up even more. He need to keep that house and rent it out, sit on that paper for a little longer.
Yes, that show is not funny at all and he got the nerve to be coming out with another one based on that wack azz movie Meet The Browns. That was his wackest movie to date. I like all the other ones though, they actually had some meaning.
NOT TYLER PERRY..HE NOT BROKE
I DONT BELIEVE HE IS BROKE TYLOR HAS MADD MONEY
MTO have been catching a lot of wind lately.
That's a shame--if it's true....
MTO, yall are stupid. You know *** well we are in a recession and it is effecting everyone. I don't care how rich you are. People are not buying or willing to buy like they use to. So if he wants to get rid of it he had to lower the price. That man is far from being broke.
Maybe he can't sell it at the original asking price MTO. How does that equate to financial troubles?

If MTO had a clue, they'd know the real estate market is in the toilet right now, no one is getting full value for their houses. Perry probably just wants to unload the place and is willing to take a loss just to get it off his hands.
blackchinadoll is so accurate in her statements.MTO you all need to get cold ,hard facts before y'all start reporting untrue garbage.y'all ALWAYS lying on somebody.tyler perry could have any good number of reasons for selling his home at that price-but money problems is not one of them.i bet no one at MTO could afford that mansion.geez,let a hard-working black man be.
going back to live in his car again? i don't think so!
I DONT BELIEVE THIS ONE
OVER 1 MILLION ITEMS SOLD! OPEN YOUR OWN JEWELRY STORE AT THE LINK BELOW! THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!!
This recession not playing..soon people will be asked to work for free
Thats a nice house
Whatever he is so talented... Mediatakeout *** is every celeb is poor let yall tell it LMAO
Well, you have too keep in mind when you build a home this spacious and luxurious is, just because you have the money to build it, doesn't mean you'll find a buyer with that kind of money to buy it!
This is not true. Gone on MTO.
CATCHING WIND AGAIN I SEE. OR IS IT JUST GAS.
MTO - come one - give us a break! You guys are almost as bad as the National Media. When black people make sell something off it means we're going broke?
Who has his house list I know some one that is interest in buying his home?
MTO says: Now we ain’t trying to start no rumors. But why would a man as wealthy as Tyler be selling his home for a near 50% loss in this market. We’re just saying ….
Rivercousin says: Because you're idiots. Anyone who has a brain knows that property is assessed at the current market value. The fact that he's selling it at a 50% loss only speaks of the current value based on the latest assessment and has nothing to do with him having money or not having money. It's just what the property is worth today so a smart man would sell if he doesn't forsee a change in the market.
Get an education MTO, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
I'm sure he has his reasons. Going broke is not necessarily it. Are you in his pocket to know his money MTO? SMDH...
I'ts a recession mto duuuuuh, i bet some of your staffers lost their homes and condos too. no one is exempt not even you FRED!
FAR FROM BROKE...
A man wit all that money he is worth it’s a
Tax write off my dumb Ni$%as it’s a smart
LOL @ Chitownbaby...you aint lyin that show is awful
WHAT SAY IT ISNT SO! TYLER GOIN THRU TOO! MAN WELL AT LEAST IT DIDNT GO FORECLOSURE! MAN I GUESS YOU GOT TO DO WHAT YOU GOT TO DO!
wheres the link to the ad
Could be selling it for a ton of reasons.
1. Relocating to bigger home
2. Downsizing his life.
3. Doesn't like the neighborhood.
4. Wants to have more to give to charity
5. Wants to lower property taxes.
6. No longer likes this home.
It could be a ton of reasons outside of financial trouble.
He got mad money. I don't think he's broke.
Get Cash for any business
because dont nobody want
to buy homes no more because
of the economy..he gota lower
the price or something!!
*** thats a nice house
DAMNIT MTO YOU SICKEN ME!!!!!!
Maybe it has to do with....um lets see here.....let me think......um......THE HORRIBLE *** HOUSING MARKET!
It has nothing to do with his financials you freaking idiot.
I sit in a neighborhood 5 days a week with homes from a million +, and trust me, they are not kicking my door down to buy, even with mega reductions...
SO CHILL WITH THE EVERYBODY IS BROKE ***!!!!
For one reason - it goes without saying that if the market today will not bare the cost of what he paid for it - then he will suffer a loss. That's just simple arithmetic, profit and loss, sales and real estate. It' unfortunate, but that's the recession that we are in.
MTO would have us to believe that errrrybody is going broke - Fantasia, Jay Z......who else MTO?
He is hardly broke! The man is empowered by the wisdom of God in his financial dealings- and I am sure that he has his bases covered. A person who lived in a car surely knows what povery and lack is like - he hardly wants to return to that life ever again.
Also, he has a whole FILM STUDIO....it takes masterminds to pull real estate like that together and not consume all of your own money.
Believe me - Tyler Perry is far from broke.
i agree with skyneska. MTO wants us to believe that anyone who is selling their home is about to be broke and that's not the case. Tyler Perry probably is having to sell his house for way less because there's no one out there with $6 million to buy it. HELLO!! Obviously he's living somewhere else now. The "lost" profit is clearly not what's important to him. Get it together MTO
Some of us aren't feeling the stinging impact of the economic downturn just yet. I am 1 of these people. On that note, Tyler Perry is probably just unleashing some property (I believe that he has 6 or 7 fabulous properties, with 3 in Georgia) & the real-estate market is ice-cold right now!
it's a beautiful mansion.
PS, This is not prime real estate, the *** house is in Fayetteville. Thats about 45 minutes outside of Atlanta and that is where the market is hemorrhaging the most!
Tyler previously stated in an interview that since he had his house in a movie (diary of a mad black woman) people found out where he lived and there were women hanging around his house and some were even trying to break in. So he had to move. Like others have stated, the economy is bad and now most real estate is being sold for a loss. Get it straight MTO.
REAL, REAL SORRY TO HEAR THIS....
ESP. SINCE THOSE WHITE NEIGHBORS WERE GIVING HIM GRIEF WHEN HE WAS BUILDING THE PLACE....
HOPE ANOTHER BLACK FAMILY BUYS IT!
The housing market is bad right now. Maybe he just wants to get it sold.
So what MTO yall act like noboday can sell their house, the housing market is very bad right about now so why not he has more.
we all gone die wes gonna die.......this is a sign things are real bad really bad.....gas is way down and we are still struggling
mayB b/c the market sucks right now .. hello !!
HE NOT THE ONLY PERSON WITH MONEY PROBLEMS MORE PEOPLE THEN HE THINK GOT MONEY PROBLEMS. PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT RICH LIKE HIM GOT MONEY PROBLEMS
That's because too many of his "friends" are remembering where he took them after picking them up at the adult bookstores. I know the secret.
@cottoncandy right! he could be like me ...MORE MONTH THAN MONEY!!
LMAO YEAH THAT TV SHOW IS GARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRBA GEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
Correction MTO, these are pics of the home he just had built. He is selling the home that was in Diary of a Mad Black Woman.
@ Dealbreaker - These are the pictures of the home in Buckhead, that's prime real estate.
MTO! ARE YOU CRAZY! OR ARE YOU JUSR *** RETARDED??? NOW YOU KNOW DAYUUUMMM WELL TY IS NOWHERE NEAR BROKE!!! SMDH...I HATE THIS SITE SMETIMES, SOOO NEGATIVE.
well he's probably just blessing sombody with what he dosent need...
He may tightening his belt so he don't go broke.
It could be things that he don't use that much or is really not too interested in keeping he is selling them off.
Makes good sense to me especially in these hard times.
Forbes 2008 Celebrity 100 ranking based on pay has Tyler Perry earning $125,000,000 a year, making him number 6 out of 100.
I LOVE THAT PAD
BUT I WOULD'T WANT IT.
WHO THE *** GONE CLEAN IT
People need to stop living beyond their means. If I was a millionaire Target and Walmart would still be on lock. I have family member with a lot of money and they still shop at there local thrift shop. They did it when they didn't have much and they still shop cheap.
Come on MTO, this is hardly the case with Tyler. Everyone knows the house is selling perhaps for that price because of the current state of the economy. Has nothing to do with his finances. Hell if the banks were giving out loans like that half of the staff at MTO would be tring to cop that... SMDH at MTO
It's amazing to me how you can be down and broke for years ...then come up a bit then you want to buy every dayum thing there is to buy. WHY????? If I had his money I would probably look broke, smell broke and act broke...ya'll don't need to know what kind of money I got...hell ya'll might try to hit me in my dayum head. I'm just sayin tho'
I love Tyler Perry... I love his show, his plays, and his movies! He has come a long way...Why not treat yourself? Everybody else do it and some don't have as much as he have... I don't believe he's going broke, I just think he found something that fits him better... What I don't get is why he needed all that space and its just him! What he need to do is go slap the $hit out of that boy Micheal from Jena 6 for not taking him up on his offer and going to college...
That's been on the market for well over a year..before the crash.
^^^I agree..I think this place has gotten too big for him, he realized his vision, achieved it and now he has nothing else to prove.A nice 3-bedroom home on a coupla acres will be just enough for him.Spenidng all that money just to prove you have it has played out...The wise Rich have always kept it under wraps!...Kuddos for waking up Tyler!
Oh, yes. I saw related news on another site
Tyler Perry is FAR from any money issues. This is the home he's selling because fans were climbing fences and everything just to see it. He said he became unhappy living there.
He's probably taking a loss due to the economy. Mansions in CA have been lowered and lowered until some of them you can buy for a steal.
Luther Vandross lived lavishly too and never had any money scandals. If you have it to spend and want to treat yourself, do so. Especially for a tax ***.
MTO quit lying
MTO, get a grip!
That is the same mansion that was seen in Diary of a Mad Black Woman. *** after the film, he put that mansion on the market because fans kept making surprise visits. It had been sitting for probably a couple of years. Then, in case you've been living under a rock, the market got bad. And, the last time that I checked, even before the bad economy, not many folks could afford a $6 million mansion!!! He just found a buyer. He designed the mansion and could eat a $3 million loss. He was ready to get it off his hands. Don't get it twisted. Tyler is living quite comfortably. People love to hate on him and Oprah. Black folks always want someone to look up to, but then when we have someone who does well, we try to bring them down. Or, we secretly hope for their demise. God did NOT bring them this far to leave them.
TYLER HAS MONEY!!!!!!!!!SO GO FOR IT.
tyler is not broke byfar if he wants to sell one of probably 4 or more homes he's free to do so, im sure he could buy this site right from under fred's cracked heels
***!!! HAD TO COME BACK AND TAKE A LOOK AT THE HOUSE...YES!!! YOUR RIGHT! THIS GOTDAMN HOUSE IS BADDD!!! YOU KNOW HE MADE THE MOVIE MAD BLACK WOMAN RIGHT OUT OF HIS HOME...
Tyler is NOT broke!!! That's his old house that has been on the market for 2 yrs in South Fulton. Even if sells it for 3 mil he'll still make a profit because it only cost him about 1.5/2 mil to build it. Plus dude just bought the old Delta headquarters here in Atlanta and turned that into his sound stage. MTO y'all slippin. Y'all must have missed the Forbes article back in Aug about Tyler being a next gen billionaire.

You Tyler Perry stans are completely missing the point!! YES the real estate market in bad. YES we are in the midst of a credit crisis. SO.. if he didn't need the liquidity, why would he sell it now? Why not wait the downturn out?
I don't think it's money trouble, but why keep a house that you're never in? Now tha would be a waste of money!!!
Now how ya'll going to say he *** have got the house in the 1st place? That man do what he want with his *** money, no body in here wrote any of the man's plays or movies so stop hatin!
But on the real, THAT'S A BAD *** HOUSE!
*** ,, i love that man ,, he makes everyone laugh...
Awwww men!! and thats a huge house that looks lika a mini hotel.
My future baby daddy is far from broke!!
He is (and has been) selling his old mansion, in South Fulton County. The one that he used for The Diary of Mad Black Woman. His new mansion is even Phatter!!!!
If that is the same mansion that was used in the movie, “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” it has been on the market for years. As a matter of fact, it has been on the Market since that movie came out and that has been over 3 years. Tyler has not lived there since then. Perhaps it is better for Tyler financially to just let it go for $3 Million as opposed to holding out for the $6 million. The poor economy is hitting everyone hard. It isn’t economical for him to pay taxes and such on a home he isn’t living in.
I was speaking about his S. Fulton/ Fayetteville home that is on the market, not his new buckhead residence.
I don't need a lesson in prime real estate markets in ATL....I was born and bred here, and I sell real estate, preciate ya!
Sorry but I have to correct you on another accord. Being that I knew Tyler Perry's new mansion located just off the Chattahoochie River was still under construction. Further research took me to an aerial view on his home dated 10/17/2008. From that pic you can definitely see that his house was not completed then and would be impossible to finish in this *** time.....It is 36,000 sqft you know!

JUS CUZ HE TAKEN A LOSS DNT MEAN HE BROKE MAYBE HE CAN AFFORD THAT LOSS?????????????? LUV ME SUM MADEA
Doesn't make any sense ... unless he has a APR mortgage and realize it would be better to sell than pay the ridiculous interest.
i think he has had some trouble with a man claiming ownership to the property for years now ...he might just want to cut his loses. Also isn'nt his new studio in LA ?
This house has been up for sale for a while now.... and I don't think it is going for 50% of the face value... Come on MTO Get your facts right...
this is a lie
LOL...i dont believe it dawg...a these movies tyler putting out....lol man the media be lieing hard...i bout to buy the family that preys next week...
TRUST.....TP ain't hurtin for nothin MTO!
Maybe he's tired of staying in that big *** ***'er all by himself. I love big houses but I wouldn't want a house that I couldn't tell if anyone else is up in there.
Tyler Perry does not have money trouble. Anybody who owns real estate is getting hit. Has nothing to do with your personal money. Maybe he wants to sell it to minimize the decrease in value before it goes down even more. The man made something like $125 million last year. Not to mention, a new spin-off show on TBS for a full season of 13 episodes. Cha-ching. C'mon MTO.
i live in the atl and i see this crib at least once a week...... thats the old crib..... the new one is off the chain.... get the info valid and stop the hate.... tyler is one of the only black progress makers that will give anyone a chance to come up...... he finds talent in places that others would not be seen at..... i've seen him hire a band by just going out to dinner at a jazz spot... i know singers, actors and actresses that were discovered at local jam sessions..... he's a good brother to meet in the right places
Are ya'll serious. He has been trying to sell this house for a minute this was the house they use in diary of a mad black woman. He bought some land and built another big house on it. This was some land that this white man kept trying to sued him for. But this is old news he has been trying to sell this house for a minute so the man is not broke
