Tyler Perry sues alleged stalker, who is an ex-employee

Capture39Tyler Perry is suing an ex-employee named Joshua Sole, 27, (pictured right) for trespassing and stalking him. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

A reputed stalker seems to have put a fright into movie mogul Tyler Perry right before Halloween. Perry filed for a protective order Monday in Fulton County Superior Court against Joshua Sole, 27, of Dunwoody, who was booked into the county jail Friday for criminal trespass at Tyler Perry Studios.

Sole is trying to intimidate him, Perry says in the lawsuit.

Sole had tried to contact Perry Thursday with no success, the lawsuit said. He apparently was so determined to get a face-to-face with the movie maker. The lawsuit said he disengaged the power to disable the alarms and surveillance equipment at the studio in southwest Atlanta. Then he climbed into the studio through a suspended ceiling.

Atlanta Police said they got a call about an intruder at the Tyler Perry Studio about 6 p.m. Thursday. When officers arrived, the head of security said an “employee Joshua Sole has been acting weird” and had barricaded himself in a room where the administrative offices were located, according to the incident report.

At the time, the security chief was puzzled by how Sole had gained access to the room. It took police more than four hours to get Sole into custody. He was booked into Fulton County jail early Friday morning.

Perry is asking the court to ban Sole from coming within 500 feet of him, and to compel Sole to undergo psychological evaluation and treatment as well as pay Perry at least $100,000. The studio executive will let a jury decide if he deserves more compensation, the lawsuit said. Perry says he is entitled to the money because of the “discomfort and annoyance caused by the diminished value of peaceful enjoyment” he gets from the property, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit doesn’t say whether Perry fired Sole or in what capacity he was employed.

A Fulton County magistrate apparently didn’t consider Sole dangerous. He was released on a $7,000 signature bond — meaning he put up nothing of value — the same day he was jailed.

Perry, however, is trying to remedy that outcome. The lawsuit asks the Superior Court to require Sole to post a bond to ensure his good behavior.

This all sounds so fantastic, like the plot for another Tyler Perry movie? #justsaying

But if it’s not… Hmm, this ex employee that is sharing himself for Tyler… Diaris God o. Not only in Nigeria, but everywhere else, and in everything we do.

Can someone please tell me why this guy isn’t stalking me?! Cos I sure as hell won’t be filing a restraining order against him. By God, he’ll be filing the restraining order by the time the stalking episode is over.

    So that’s what Tyler has been enjoying in bed… I’m not saying anything or reaching any conclusions oh, but this sentence warrants some coughing from me –> “The lawsuit doesn’t say whether Perry fired Sole or in what capacity he was employed.”

      “Royally hot guys who act for him…” I wonder whether anyone saw d episode of “Boondocks” where they parodied a certain Play-producer who acts in drag (Madea style) and had an army of shirtless,muscular, lotioned-up hunks working for him and who put a lot of effort into selecting the “royally hot guys who act for him”…lol. D boondocks are a mess for doing that to Mr.Perry… LMAO

    Well, obviously in the course of their loving, Tyler must have handed some dough over to him, I mean how else can this person sort out $100,000.

    Oh well, such is life! Even the gorgeous get dumped. But hold on, why is everyone assuming that that’s the situation here? Lmao! Why can’t he be a disgruntled cameraman or something?
