Floyd Mayweather is using his wealth to help the family of George Floyd.
The pro boxer has reportedly offered to pay for all costs related to George’s funeral.
While speaking with Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee during a private conversation, Mayweather shared that he was distraught after learning the minimal charge former officer Chauvin received for killing George — just third-degree murder and manslaughter.
He told Jason that he was in a group chat with Anzel Jennings, the CEO of TMT music label, who shared that he actually grew up with George in Houston. Following their conversion, Jennings reached out to the family on Mayweather’s behalf.
The 43-year-old star felt compelled to do something so he committed to paying for the three funeral services in Houston, George’s hometown – Minnesota and Charlotte.
The family is also looking to have a fourth service in another location. Mayweather has also offered to take care of those expenses as well.
This is nice. We wonder of Floyd will also use some his enormous wealth to donate to bail funds and other organizations.
