Tyler Perry’s alleged stalker is blasting the directors legal battle accusing him of harassment along with seeking $100k in damages, claiming the lawsuit is deceptive and he is demanding it be thrown out of court — theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports.
Earlier this year, Perry reportedly filed a lawsuit demanding a restraining order against his ex-employee Joshua Sole. The suit was the result of an incident that took place at Perry’s studio office back in October 2014.
The director claimed that his alleged stalker, Sole, had barricaded himself in his studio’s office and forced everyone to evacuate. The man was accused of disabling the alarms and security equipment at the studio and then climbed through the ceiling panels.
The police report stated that employees claimed Sole refused to leave without having a conversation with Perry. The local law enforcement arrived and charged Sole with criminal trespassing after having to spend 4 hours getting him out of the studio offices.
Perry sued Sole $100k in damages for harassment and $25k in legal fees for having to bring the lawsuit. The director also wanted Sole to have to undergo psychological counseling.
