A snitch claims Rihanna is making it her business to avoid meetings with Tyler Perry, because Whitney Houston allegedly warned her from starring in his predictable films. Apparently, Whitney thought his movies were for has-been D-list actors, not rising one's. Bloop…Ironically, Tyler Perry flew Whitney's body to New Jersey on his private jet!
“Although Tyler has been courting Rihanna for a year and a half, hoping to build a movie around her, she has rejected the idea,” a source close to the star’s business affairs told RadarOnline.com. “Rihanna has pointedly avoided meeting with him!”
According to the source, before Houston’s tragic death in 2012, Rihanna, 26, met her at a party and got her take on Perry’s movies, which include the Madea series, Why Did I Get Married? and the recent Single Moms Club.
“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones,’” the source said.
