Tyler Perry Gifts Bentleys

What do you get for the woman who has everything? A Bentley, if you ask Hollywood kingpin Tyler Perry. It has been revealed that Perry dropped major cash to gift Oprah with a brand new Bentley last summer. Apparently one eager to share the wealth, the filmmaker soon after copped yet another Bentley, this time for Oprah's bestie Gayle King. “I called Tyler and told him how amazing that was because nobody ever does anything like that for her, on such a grand scale,” King said. “And so, the next day when I got home, there was a Bentley in my driveway!”

Perry certainly owes much of his early success and industry support to Oprah, who had him on her daytime talk show right before he blew up overnight. Now, it seems as if Perry now has taken it upon himself to be the supportive shoulder for Bobby Kristina, having recently given her a role on his TBS sitcom "Tyler Perry's For Better of For Worse."
