As movies go, Tyler Perry's Temptation may be beyond terrible, but a small-time screenwriter is suing its creator/director for ganking the idea from him.

Yes, someone really wants a writing credit for this.

Kim in Temptation

William James says Perry stole his idea for Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, which did rake in $49 million despite epically bad reviews.

See our Temptation review right here on THG.

Anyway, James says the plot of the film, which somehow co-starred Kim Kardashian, is similar to a movie called Lovers Kill which he wrote in 2009.

Oh, Tyler Perry's Temptation, where to begin? You were written in a single night, right? On Red Bulls and Adderall? Or during a fever dream with not just a Telenovela, but the worst Telenovela - whatever that would be - playing on double-speed in the background?

Please tell me I’m getting close.

Temptation Poster

That Temptation was made is confounding. That it was made by one of the most successful and recognizable filmmakers alive is terrifying.

Tyler Perry sent Oprah a bouquet of flowers for her 59th birthday Tuesday. Nice.

Apparently it wasn't a small one, because she injured her back picking them up.

Perry posted a mea culpa on Facebook, under the title, "I Feel So Bad."

"I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up," he writes.

Kim Kardashian's new movie (yes, movie) has an official poster.

The reality show and sex tape star is headed for the silver screen, and just posted the first movie poster for Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

Check out the tantalizing tease below ...

Temptation Poster

The poster isn't much to write home about visually, but symbolically is a different story. Note the black snake in the shape of an apple and a woman's profile.

The man who penned Diary of a Mad Black Woman could likely now write a sequel: Website Posting of a Seething Producer.

Tyler Perry took to the Internet yesterday to express outrage over a report that claimed Bobbi Kristina Brown stormed off the set of Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse, the entertainment mogul's latest TBS sitcom.

Bobbi Kristina Brown at Billboard Music Awards

"I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of For Better Or Worse. NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!!" Perry wrote. "There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finished taping the season."

Perry was referring to a Radar Online story that claimed Whitney Houston's only child "couldn't handle doing the show right now" because she was still mourning her mother.

That is simply a lie, Perry wrote, acknowledging there were "tough" times given the very tough circumstances, but "grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time."

He concluded: "PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve. IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD WOULND'T YOU WANT THAT?"

TV viewers will see Bobbi Kristina when For Better Or Worse debuts in July, while she will also be featured on a Lifetime reality show that centering around her family.

A four-alarm fire ripped through Tyler Perry's Atlanta studio lot, the home base for his various TV and movie projects, the Atlanta Police Department said Tuesday.

Thankfully, no injuries have been reported in the blaze.

Per Atlanta's Channel 2 Action News, firefighters managed to extinguish the flames by around 10 p.m. but continued to battle various hot spots into the night.

At least one building on Perry's 30-acre lot had partially collapsed.

According to reports, among the structures within the 200,000-square-foot Tyler Perry Studios are a 400-seat theater and numerous sets and sound stages.

There's no word yet on the full extent of the damage or what may have caused the blaze. The Madea's Witness Protection director opened the lot in 2008.

In 2011, Kim Kardashian was in town for her role in The Marriage Counselor, and Perry hosted a March fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the studio.

Perry has also been in the news lately for his comments on the Trayvon Martin case and racial profiling, saying he personally has been profiled due to race.

Fresh off his most acclaimed film in Good Deeds, actor-director Tyler Perry and his iconic creation Madea return in his latest project, Madea’s Witness Protection.

The story actually does not follow Madea into Witness Protection, but rather Wall Street banker (Eugene Levy) whose family moves into Madea's neighborhood.

The trailer below gives us a quick glimpse of this new character sitting beside Tyler Perry's on a plane. Madea’s Witness Protection lands in theaters June 29.

Tyler Perry's claim earlier in the week that he was a victim of some not-so-civil treatment by Atlanta police has led to an internal department investigation.

The comedian and producer spoke out, in light of the Trayvon Martin case, about racial profiling he allegedly suffered from two officers during a traffic stop.

Perry claimed he was questioned unreasonably because he is black, and spared further trouble only after a black officer showed up and recognized Perry.

Perry says racial profiling should be a federal offense. While that may never happen, Atlanta police are looking into his claims of misconduct in this case.

The Good Deeds director described his version of events in detail on his Facebook page on Sunday, writing that he was driving to the airport at the time.

Perry was pulled over for turning left from a right lane, a maneuver he attempted to ensure he wasn't being followed, as he was without his security detail.

According to Perry, who described the ordeal on Facebook, the officer who approached his window asked, "Why do you think someone would follow you?"

In the wake of the Trayvon Martin case an his own experiences, Tyler Perry has called for federal agents to take racial profiling seriously as a potential hate crime.

The Good Deeds director took to Facebook to discuss Martin, who was shot and killed in Florida in February by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman.

Moreover, Perry alleges he was pulled over in L.A. late one night for an illegal turn, reprimanded for having tinted windows, and realized he was in big trouble.

Tyler Perry writes on his official page:

“My mother would always say to me, ‘if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white policemen, you say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don’t resist, you hear me?"

"Don’t make any quick moves, don’t run, just go.’ It wasn’t until after I heard her voice that I realized that both officers were white… I didn’t feel safe at all."

"At this point, I told him (the arresting officer) that I wanted to get out of the car. I wanted the passersby to see what was happening.”

However, once a black officer pulled up at the scene and recognized Perry, the officials apologized and let him go. But the incident has stayed with him.
