Tyler Perry takes staffers to Denmark for Beyonce Formation Tour


Never let it be said that Tyler Perry is not a generous man...or boss.

When he's not helping out locals -- two years ago he helped the mother of a sick teen in Henry County pay rent for a year -- he's helping his staffers enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

In this case, that simple pleasure was a trip on a private jet to Copenhagen, Denmark to see Beyonce's Formation World Tour .

This past weekend, Perry treated a few staffers, including his costume designer, Crystal Renee, and his flight attendant to the July 24 show, reports Page Six .

Renee posted about the experience on Instagram saying:

"The moment your boss says cut your vacation short & let's hop on the jet & go to Copenhagen to see Beyoncé! Ummm you pack yo ish & you get home!!! @tylerperry knows my LOVE for Beyoncé! Not only did I get to experience the Formation World Tour in Europe I also got to meet my girl Bey right before she took the stage! This is just another testament to the type of person Mr. P is!!! I'm floating and forever grateful & will remember this moment! Thank you!!!!"

A source close to Perry told Page Six that he wanted to go to a place where he could be anonymous and enjoy the show. But he did it while also giving a few close staff members the opportunity of a lifetime.

If you don't work for Perry, you'll just have to wait to catch Bey on her second tour date through Atlanta on September 26 at the Georgia Dome.
