Nicki Minaj Gives Geoffrey Owens $25,000
Nikki Minaj has made good on her pledge to donate $25,000 to former "Cosby Show" actor Geoffrey Owens. To refresh your memory, Nicki took to her Queen Radio show to$25,000 after he was publicly shamed for working at Trader Joe's.
Well Nicki's team finally sent the check to Geoffrey & he's made the decision to donate the money to a cause near and dear to his heart and acting career. Geoffrey tells TMZ,
"I would like to give this donation of 25k to the Actor’s Fund in memory of the late, great Earle Hyman -- who played Cosby’s father, ‘Russell’, on “The Cosby Show” -- who lived his last many years and died at the Actors’ Home, (funded and run by the Actor’s Fund). I am extremely grateful to Nicki Minaj for enabling struggling actors to continue pursuing their dreams."
In her own statement, Nicki says,
"I'm happy to be a part of a great cause. I wish Geoffrey much success and want him to know how loved he is. Rest in Peace to Earle Hyman."
Good for both of them for the wonderful things they're doing for their fellow human beings <3
