Rihanna Turns Down Tyler Perry Film Role Because of Whitney Houston



Rihanna’s reign is never-ending. The sassy singer is in the process of transitioning into more acting roles, but that doesn’t mean she’s willing to take just any role. Radar Online reports that the platinum-selling artist rejected a casting proposal from director Tyler Perry.

Reportedly, The Madea mogul has been pursuing Queen Robyn to star in one of his romantic comedies for quite some time. Sources say that Whitney Houston supposedly advised the singer to avoid Tyler’s films because they are for black Hollywood has-been’s.
