Published September 13, 2018

In the wake of Geoffrey Owens' unwarranted public job-shaming by the hands of Fox News, Nicki Minaj made quite the generous and kind gesture by publicly pledging to donate $25,000 to the Cosby Show alum.

As previously reported, Owens is yet to receive the large sum of cash, but new reports indicate what he plans on doing with the money if it does get to him.

Minaj originally announced on her widely popular Queen Radio show that she wanted to financially assist the struggling actor after a photo of him working as a Trader Joe's crew member went viral.

The "Barbie Dreams" femcee, whose offer came almost immediately after Tyler Perry extended an acting opportunity to Owens on Twitter, later took to her radio show to explain that she had no way of getting in touch with the actor's people.

Despite Minaj having some initial struggles in getting a hold of Owens, it is now being reported that the actor, who recently landed another major TV gig, has big plans in place for the enormous sum of money, and it's pretty selfless, to say the least.

According to TMZ, while Owens has stressed, repeatedly, that he is not looking for any handouts, if he does receive the $25K from Minaj, he will likely donate it all to his favorite charities.
