If you had any doubt about Beyonce’s philanthropic endeavors, she proves yet again how giving she really is. Bey dropped $7 million on a housing complex in her hometown to put a roof over homeless men and women heads. Also, Tyler Perry just won the rights to use “What Would Jesus Do” for a film, beating out reality TV star Kim "Poprah" Kearney in court. Deets inside….

Beyonce is really on her philanthropic ish.  You may not know this, but the hot Houston native dropped a cool $7 million on a housing complex in her hometown for homeless men and women to have a place to stay.

During an interview with KHOU (spotted on B. Scott), Bey’s pastor Rev. Rudy Rasmus (who presided over the Carters nuptials in 2008) opened up about the superstar’s generosity to her church. He said,

“She’s an incredible human being. Has an incredible heart and has been extremely helpful in our mission and our ministry here.”

He also revealed Beyonce has donated millions of dollars to the church and that she embodies the true spirit of love.

“She has a global platform and is doing some amazing work and I’m glad she’s a friend of mine.”

Bey holds her church very close to her heart since being a part of the congregation since she was a little girl.

“She used to sing right here,” said Rasmus. “I don’t remember the song but I do remember she had long braids, tennis shoes and jeans on. A far cry from what she is today.”

Aww!

Remember the chick Kim "Poprah" Kearney from the VH1 reality show “I Want To Work For Diddy?” Well, it seems SHE was the reason behind Tyler Perry having to go to war in court to use the “What Would Jesus Do” title for an upcoming film.

Tyler and Poprah have been battling it out in court since 2008 to use the coined phrase. According to the Guardian, Poprah filed a trademark application to use “What Would Jesus Do” for a Christian reality show in January 2008. In May of the same year, Tyler filed a trademark to secure the rights to use the phrase for entertainment products including films, musicals and television series.

Poprah claims she pitched the “What Would Jesus Do” reality television show idea to Tyler months before his team filed for the trademark. Tyler’s team argued that Poprah had no intention of using the phrase so the studio sought to cancel her trademark. Tyler’s team was able to prove the burden of proof and now Poprah’s trademark cancellation is pending after the trademark office granted its cancellation on non-use grounds.
 

There you have it.
