Rihanna is plotting her next movie role but is avoiding director Tyler Perry, who wants the singer to star in one of his romantic comedies, reports gossip site RadarOnline.com.

A source told the site that Rihanna was warned by the late Whitney Houston that Perry's movies were for or African-American has-beens.

“Although Tyler has been courting Rihanna for a year and a half, hoping to build a movie around her, she has rejected the idea,” a source close to the star’s business affairs told RadarOnline.com.

The site reports: According to the source, before Houston’s tragic death in 2012, Rihanna, 26, met her at a party and got her take on Perry’s movies, which include the Madea series, Why Did I Get Married? and the recent Single Moms Club.

“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones,’” the source said.
