According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount is in talks to sell its majority investment in BET, and Perry is interested.
Perry, a longtime BET collaborator, has been involved in discussions to make the purchase. In 2017, Paramount made the choice to sell its interest. But, an inside source has disclosed that the talks may be coming to an end shortly.
If Perry makes the deal, he will own the network that hosts some of his shows such as “Sistas,” “The Oval,” “House of Payne,” and others.
