According to TMZ, Nicki Minaj has despatched a verify for $25Okay to Gefrey Owens after pledging to donate the cash on “Queen Radio” earlier this month. However, as an alternative holding the cash, the actor will probably be donating the big verify to charity.
“I want to give this donation 25okay to the Actor’s Fund in reminiscence the late, nice Earle Hyman — who performed Cosby’s father, ‘Russell’, on “The Cosby Show” — who lived his final a few years and died on the Actors’ Home, (funded and run by the Actor’s Fund).” He stated, “I’m extraordinarily grateful to Nicki Minaj for enabling struggling actors to proceed pursuing their desires.”

While Owens finally left his job at Trader Joe’s as a result of the unwarranted consideration that got here from the viral second, it appeared to work out in his favor, finally.

Nicki Minaj said herself in the last episode Queen Radio that she was having difficulty getting through to Gefrey Owens, after pledging to donate $25K as a compassionate gesture. But a conflicting report is coming out TMZ, they’ve been told she’s made no effort at all to reach out. As you may recall, Gefrey Owens, the former Cosby Show actor photographed by two women who spotted him working in a New Jersey Trader Joe’s, has had his private life completely disrupted.
On the surface, working in a grocery store is respectable way to make a living, but as you know the Internet is quite the unforgiving place. Nicki Minaj was the loudest voice in the public sphere to pledge her support to Owens, through monetary means, but so far nothing has yet to materialize.
Sources close to TMZ say that Gefrey is not interested in receiving a handout, their belief is that a payout would be demeaning to the actor. Those sources also indicate that Owens has not received a call from Nicki or her reps.
Other “benefactors” like Tyler Perry were able to reach Gefrey Owens, after fering the actor a 10-episode run on The Haves and the Have Nots, which he accepted. Since then Owens has been able to land a gig on CBS’ NCIS: New Orleans. Sometimes the best way to empower someone is to invest in their future. By all accounts, Nicki Minaj may have the very best intentions in the matter, precluding any foul play.
