Rihanna Rejects Tyler Perry Movie Role Because Of Whitney Houston

Who rejects Tyler Perry because of a ghost!

The late Whitney Houston is the big reason why pop star Rihanna has allegedly rejected a movie role from the prestigious Tyler Perry Productions.

According to sources, RiRi was warned by the late Whitney that Perry's films are for faded African-American actors. A close source reveals that, "Although Tyler has been courting Rihanna for a year and a half, hoping to build a movie around her, she has rejected the idea and has pointedly avoided meeting with him."

Its alleged that before Houston's tragic death in 2012, Rih, 26, met with her at a party and got her take on Perry's movies, which include the Madea series, Why Did I Get Married? and the recent Single Moms Club. "Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that 'Tyler's films are for fading black stars, not rising ones,'" the source said.

Well it looks like Whitney's ghost is winning too because Rihanna so respected the singer because in addition to being one of the biggest pop stars ever, she starred in hit movies such as The Bodyguard."

However it's likely she's ruling out doing a Tyler Perry-style romanticcomedy because she thinks she works better in action roles – Battleship - playing the tough girl."
