TYLER PERRY’S TYLER PERRY GETTING SUED

Last year, news broke that famed film maker Tyler Perry was embroiled in a frightening stalker situation. Perry sued his alleged stalker for $125,000, outlining assault and emotional distress claims. Now the said stalker is firing back.

Male model, Joshua Sole, began working for Tyler Perry Studios in or about July last year. According to Perry in a November 7, 2014 Facebook post, Sole was “mentally disturbed” and obsessive over meeting Perry. Perry made these remarks when, three months into Sole's employment, Sole was arrested for barricading himself in the mogul's office and refusing to come out until Perry met with him.

Now Sole is asserting his innocence and is even taking further to allege sexual harassment on the part of Perry's studio staff. In a federal lawsuit, Sole claims that his supervisor, Brett Hendrix, subjected him to constant harassment. As per the suit, Hendrix allegedly attempted to inappropriately touch Sole, asked for sex in exchange for drugs, engaged in sexting, requested sex, and called him inappropriate names.

Sole's lawsuit is seeking $5 million in damages for the hostile work environment that caused embarrassment, humiliation, and emotional health damage. The model is also seeking libel damages for Perry's online comment regarding his mental health.
