Newly minted Forbes billionaire Tyler Perry already pulled millions of damp crumpled up dollar bills out of Madea’s bra to pay for Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, but he’s not done empire building just yet. According to TMZ, Tyler’s in the middle of building an obscene estate for himself to rival Versailles. Yes, the one in Florida, obviously. Recent aerial photos of the “35,000-square-foot mansion he’s building on 1,200 acres near Atlanta,” show what appears to be a private airport and hangar for his jet. Given what we know about Tyler’s preference for doing everything himself, on the cheap, Tyler Perry Air is about to make the crew of Soul Plane look like the First Class crew of Emirates Air.
According to TMZ:
The awesome estate Tyler Perry’s building may soon need its own damn zip code, ’cause it seems he’s building his own airport on a property fit for a billionaire!!!
TMZ’s obtained photos and video of the 35,000-square-foot mansion he’s building on 1,200 acres near Atlanta. As you can see … there are 2 structures on the property. The much bigger structure is the main house and it’s inching closer to becoming a completed project.
They’re building an enormous lap pool, as well as a grand entrance to the property. Also, check out the smaller structure that appears to already be completed.
And, Tyler may no longer have a use for a commercial airport, because it looks like he’s creating his own runway!
Here’s a look at why Tyler buys all the wigs for his productions at Party City the day after Halloween when they get marked down 50%.

I hope, at the very least, Tyler went with union contractors because you really can’t be too careful when it comes to aviation. It’s one thing to court non-equity players willing to risk having an eye put out with one of Madea’s swinging bean bag titties for a stage show, but you really don’t want to be hiring air traffic controllers off of Craigslist.
