Tyler Perry, actor, director, screenwriter, playwright, producer, author, and songwriter, is suing a former employee, Joshua Sole, for criminal trespassing. Sole allegedly tampered with the alarms and surveillance equipment and climbed through a suspended ceiling at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta in order to come face-to-face with the media mogul. Because of this, Perry is suing Sole for over $100,000 in damages, claiming that he has felt uncomfortable at the property since the occurrence. In addition to the $100,000, Perry is asking for $25,000 in attorney fees and a restraining order against Sole. He also wants Sole to undergo a mandatory psychological evaluation and treatment.
