Tyler Perry, American actor and producer, revealed in an interview with AARP The Magazine having buried Bibles to "refocus the spirit" of a place he considers "haunted".

Tyler Perry considers having been "haunted" by the property. He therefore chose to bury Bibles to “refocus the spirit of the place”.
“From the moment I entered the property, I was haunted by her. So, as we built each of the 12 sound stages, we buried Bibles underneath, as a way to refocus the spirit of place. I wanted it to be a place where everyone was welcome. »
On the occasion of the opening gala of his studio, Tyler Perry had organized a religious service.
"Glory to Glory - Can't end the weekend without Jesus meeting us on the studio lawn!! To have a full heart and a grateful soul for all who have prayed to me thus far. »
