*Tyler Perry is suing the producers of his “For Better or Worse” sitcom claiming their negligence caused the massive fire at his Atlanta studio.

The lawsuit, according to TMZ, claims the blaze broke out in May 2012 during production of the OWN series because a hot light was placed too close to a facade on set.

Perry is suing the show’s producers for negligence, saying they should have hired better lighting guys.

He’s demanding $1.8 mil to cover the total damage to the studio.
