Hmmmm. Well you know that I had a chance to interview Campbell earlier this year about his new movie, "Oblivious", and his involvement in Blaque's new reality show, "Black in the House", set to air this Summer. When I asked him about the PRESENT relationship with his famous cousin Perry he was pretty mum and only said, "We are not as close as we should be.". From there I knew but didn't pry. I must say however that he didn't pretend that Perry was involved in his current projects either, he was very legit. Well still, the proverbial ish finally hit the jagged fan and the two are certainly not kissing cousins. So what's up with Tyler Perry anyway? Yes if Marlon didn't ask to use Tyler's name he should have BUT still why is Tyler so mad at his family? He's a big 'ol Christian so what is going on behind the surface that put the man so up in arms?! Did he have to go that far? We'll find out why. More on the story as it unfolds!
