Tyler Perry is being sued by songwriter Johnny Tyrone Stringfield because of unauthorized use of his lyrics on an episode of Meet the Browns.
"The Devil thought he had me … but I got away," sang several characters on the show, which is from Stringfield's I Got Away.
Unfortunately, Perry and the companies behind the show have not paid up! The gospel singer is asking for over $100,000 to keep things copacetic.
Madea could afford it!
