Back in July, mogul Tyler Perry vowed to help a 93-year-old South Carolina woman who was being taunted by land developers trying to force her into selling her property. Now the Madea star has revealed he’s building the elderly woman her dream home–a five bedroom house with a game room, dining room, home office, media room and a big porch and a pool.

TMZ reports:

Tyler Perry’s lifeline for an elderly woman fighting to hang on to the South Carolina property her family’s owned since the Civil War era includes a new home with a swimming pool.


Josephine Wright is the 93-year-old woman duking it out with a developer in Hilton Head and her granddaughter, Charise, tells TMZ … Tyler got in touch with the family and asked Josephine what she wanted in a new home, and she told him 5 bedrooms plus a pool.

Charise says Tyler agreed and his team sent Josephine the blueprints. But, she says her grandma is very particular and asked for a few minor changes … and he obliged.

As you can see in the blueprint, obtained by TMZ, there’s also a game room, dining room, home office, media room and a big porch.

We’re told Tyler is gifting Josephine a modular home … meaning it will be built off-site and then moved to a separate part of her expansive property, so she won’t have to leave the plot of land that’s been passed down by her family for generations.

Charise says part of her grandma’s current home is built on the section of property that is the subject of a bitter land dispute.
