They brought a raft of celebrities to Packer’s Atlanta home including Chris Tucker, Tiffany Haddish, Kelly Rowland, Marlon Wayans, LaToya Luckett, Marsai Martin and Tyrese Gibson.

Packer -  who has produced an array of hit films such as “Ride Along,” “Girls Trip” and “Think Like a Man” -  in a text dubbed the event “amazing.”
