Tyler Perry Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $450 Million
Tyler Perry is one of the most successful and wealthiest directors in Hollywood, and probably the rest of the world as well. However, Emmitt Perry Jr. isn’t just a movie director and producer, and the reason why he’s had so much success throughout his career in the entertainment industry is due to a wide set of skills that very few people in the world possess. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then let me put you up to date real quick. As mentioned earlier, Perry doesn’t only direct films, he is also a highly skilled writer, actor and comedian, in fact, most of his films have had success thanks to his work, both as a writer and a performer.
Emmitt’s career has been quite impressive up until now, but the amount of money that he’s made is even more impressive, in fact, Forbes named him the highest paid man in entertainment with estimated earnings of $130 million between 2010 and 2011.
Tyler Perry works very hard in order to earn his money, this guy isn’t just lucky, well, maybe a little bit, but you have to admit that he works harder than anyone else in the entertainment industry. Just take a look at all the movies that he’s made, films such as Madea’s Big Happy Family, Madea’s Family Reunion, Madea Goes to Jail, A Madea Christmas, Alex Cross, Star Trek, The Family That Prays, Precious, Madea’s Witness Protection, Madea’s Big Happy Family, and “The Single Moms Club” among many others. These are exactly the type of films that everyone loves, they are the staple ingredient of his success, and they’ve also taken this guy straight to the top.
Emmitt has also done a lot of stage work, and even several television shows, the most popular without any doubt has been CBS’s “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne”, which aired for 8 full seasons. Tyler has not stopped working in television, in fact, he recently signed a multi-million dollar partnership deal with the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), and now the award winning actor/director is in charge of the creation of all the new series and projects of Oprah’s highly rated television channel.
But, how much is Tyler Perry really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines he currently has an estimated net worth of $400 million, however, we figured that those numbers might be a little bit off, because in 2010 Forbes included him on their Billionaires In The Making list with estimated earnings of more than $350 million. Do you really think that this guy has only made $50 more million dollars in a time span of 4 years? I don’t, in fact Forbes Magazine calculated that he had estimated earnings of over $78 million between 2012 and 2013, so as you can see the numbers simply don’t add up.
We’ve recalculated Tyler Perry’s net worth, so after doing a lot of research and gathering more updated information about his career, salary, and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that he is definitely richer than what most people think, or say. We believe that Emmitt Jr. has a total fortune of $450 million dollars as of 2015.
