Entertainment mogul Tyler Perry, who it taking on the role as detective Alex Cross in the upcoming movie Cross, is featured on the cover of Essence magazine’s November 2012 issue. In it, he divulges that he spoke with his now-late dear friend, Whitney Houston, the night Michael Jackson’s death was announced. Out of concern for her mental health and aware of her past history with drugs, Perry asked if he could come over to console her and Houston retorted, “I am a mother, I have a daughter and I want to be clear: Ain’t no man coming over in the middle of the night.”
So much for that.
