Josephine Wright’s family has been in the same South Carolina home since the Civil War, and she hesitates to move.

Tyler Perry supports Josephine Wright, an elderly woman involved in a legal battle over her land.

According to the 93-year-old South Carolinian who spoke to the local news outlet WSAV, developers are intimidating her and pressuring her into selling her home.

Wright, a 40-year-old grandmother, 50-year-old great-grandmother, and 16-year-old great-great-grandmother, told WSAV that her Hilton Head home is “where I want to be at this age” and that she will fight anyone who attempts to keep her from being there.

The report claims that Wright’s family has been at her home since the end of the Civil War. Her husband’s family included former slaves who were freed by Union forces.

According to WSAV, a land development business located behind Wright’s house has filed a lawsuit, asserting that a piece of the house is on their property.

“I think they figured I would get so freaked out by the harassment that I would say take it,” she said of the creators. But they don’t know who I am. I’m here to stand up for what I have.

An investment group representative was asked by PEOPLE for a comment, but they were slow to respond.

Now that Hollywood is aware of the courageous South Carolinian’s battle, director and philanthropist Perry, 53, has taken note.

On Instagram, he posted the WSAV news on Wright’s conflict and offered support.

The actor captioned the photo with the quote, “I’ve pretty much been a fighter all my life” from Wright and wrote, “Ms. Wright, please tell where to show up and what you need to help you fight.”

Meek Mill and Fantasia Barrino, among others applauded Perry’s support and pledged their own.

“Superhero status is the zenith of workplace bullying.” Mill said in the comments, and Barrino added, “I will stand with you as well Tyler.”

With his wealth, Perry, who received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2021 Oscars, had already helped elderly people maintain their homes.

A source claims that Perry donated $750,000 in February to prevent the eviction of elderly low-income residents in Atlanta.

According to the source, the donation will also include an additional $500,000 given year over the following five years. A group of older citizens who live in the capital city of Georgia will have their property taxes frozen for the next 20 years thanks to the donation.
