Contractors file liens against Perry's Ga. home

January 26, 2009 11:34:50 AM PST
Six construction companies have filed liens against actor-screenwriter Tyler Perry's home and movie studio, claiming they are owed thousands of dollars in unpaid bills.

Fulton County court documents show the companies claim they are owed nearly $200,000 for work on Perry's 30,000-square-foot home and production studio in Atlanta.

Perry tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he withheld payment from the companies for undocumented charges or sloppy work. He tells the newspaper he is being treated unfairly because he is a celebrity.

A publicist for Perry did not immediately return a call for comment Monday from The Associated Press.

The 39-year-old Perry has a new movie, "Madea Goes to Jail," debuting Feb. 20.
