Nicki Minajwas in a giving mood Thursday (Sept. 6). On the heels picking up a bunch college tuition tabs for students, Minaj announced on the latest episode her Queen Radio show that she would be donating $25,000 to former Cosby Show star Gefrey Owens, who found himself in the news after photos him working the cashier at a New Jersey Trader Joe's store went viral online.
Additionally, the "Chun Li" rapper named both culprits the negativity surrounding Owens' job--Karma Lawrence and her wife Yanelle--"Cock Sucker the Day" for episode No. 7 because she was so disgusted by their attempt at job-shaming him. "I took that to heart. Y'all don't know how difficult it is to keep getting jobs and you want to put somebody up on the fucking internet," Nicki said.
Earlier this week (Sept. 4), Owens appeared on Good Morning America where he discussed his current life situation. "I'd been teaching acting and directing for 30-plus years but it just got to a point where it didn't add up enough," said the Yale University graduate. As a result the fresh exposure, the acting fers have been pouring in for Owens. Tyler Perry invited Gefrey to join the cast his new show that begins shooting next week.
