Last week on Nicki’s Queen Radio show, Nicki Minaj said that she was sending Geoffrey Owens, a former ‘Cosby Show’ actor that has been employed at Trader Joe’s.
When new broke that Owens was working a basic job and he was being shamed for it, Nicki jumped in and said she was sending him $25,000 to help him out. Sources close to the situation tell reporters that Nicki and her team have made no efforts to contact Owens, according to reports.
TMZ was told that Owens is not looking for any handouts, and if Nicki does end up making good on her pledge he’ll likely donate the loot to his favorite charities.
Regardless if she gives him the money or not Godfrey Owens has since the Trader Joe’s pic, joined Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” for 10 episodes and will be featured on “NCIS: New Orleans.”
