Contractors File Liens on Tyler Perry's Home and Studio

ATLANTA (AP) - Six construction companies have filed liens
against actor-screenwriter Tyler Perry's home and movie studio,
claiming they're owed thousands of dollars in unpaid bills.

Court documents show the companies claim that Perry failed to pay them nearly $200,000 for work on his 30,000-square-foot home and production studio in Atlanta.

Perry told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he withheld payment for undocumented charges or sloppy work. He accused the contractors of trying to cheat him and said, "Just because I'm a Christian, just because I'm a nice guy, it doesn't mean I'm a wimp."

Perry is best known for his Christian-themed dramas, including "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," and for his hit TV show "Tyler Perry's House of Payne."
