This past summer, the 46-year-old filmmaker sold his Atlanta mansion for $17.5 million, setting a record for the highest paid price ever for a private home in the Georgia capital.Per E! News Online, the French Provincial-style estate, which measures in at 34,688 square feet and sits on 17 acres, includes seven bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, two kitchens, an 18-seat theater, and a swimming pool with a waterfall. Perry bought more land outside of the city.

An $845 Million Dollar Hitmaker


The writer/director/producer powerhouse has churned out 17 films in 11 years, which have a lifetime gross of about $845 million worldwide. His personal net worth is estimated at $450 million. After striking an exclusive multi-year partnership with mentor Oprah Winfrey, Perry moved his TV empire over to OWN, where he currently runs four shows: If Loving You is Wrong, For Better or Worse, The Haves and the Have Nots, and Love Thy Neighbor. Other television projects include the drama series Too Close to Home on TLC, which is Perry’s first scripted series with an all white leading cast (however, overall the cast is diverse).

Perry recently gave a shout-out to screenwriter/director and fellow OWN showrunner, Ava DuVernay, when he tweeted,“Extremely well-acted and even better directed! All hail Queen DuVernay. @AVAETC, you are amazing!! #QueenSugar.”

Coming to the big screen is Boo! A Madea Halloween, distributed by Lionsgate Entertainment with an October 21, 2016 release date. It’s the latest film in Perry’s franchise that centers around his popular matriarch character, Madea. For this comedic adventure through a haunted Halloween, she will fight off zombies, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, and ghouls, all while protecting a group of misbehaving teens.
