Nicki Minaj Is Getting Dragged For Not Paying Geoffrey Owens

Nicki Minaj Is Getting Dragged For Not Paying Geoffrey Owens

What do you have to say for yourself, Queen?

Published September 12, 2018

Nicki Minaj was praised by her Barbs when she took to her Queen Radio segment last week and denounced the woman who photographed actor Geoffrey Owens making a honest living at Trader Joe's in New Jersey.

After awarding Karma Lawrence with "C**ksucker of the Day," the Queen femcee generously decided that she would give Owens $25,000.

  1. Despite the grand gesture seemingly harmless and from a good place, many felt that it's not exactly what Owens wanted

    Since being unfairly embarrassed and scrutinized by Fox News, Owens has received two incredible acting gigs: a 10-episode reoccurring role on Tyler Perry's The Haves and Have Nots and a guest appearance on NCIS: New Orleans.

    Many noted actors and actresses rushed to Owens' defense about the downside of the industry and why it's so unfortunate that this woman turned his survival methods into something the world could ridicule. Owens appeared on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts to say that that moment of shame was brief. He, instead, opted to focus on the outpouring of love and solidarity.

  2. Some even claimed that Nicki used Owens' moment as a way to render good publicity for herself, in light of her various fiery outbursts
  3. However, it now appears that Nicki has made no attempt to give Geoffrey Owens that money

    On the latest episode of Queen Radio, in between airing out Cardi B's dirty laundry, Head Barb announced that she didn't know how to get in touch with Geoffrey Owens. She urged her listeners to help her get in contact with the Cosby star, so her donation can be received.

    According to TMZ, Owens and his team are easily accessible, thus her reasoning is null in void. Granted, Owens isn’t particularly seeking a handout and will, most likely, give the $25K to his favorite charities.

    However, between his acting gigs, Owens’ bags seem pretty secure, but it still seems shady that Nicki hasn’t delivered on her promise.

    Not a good look, Queen.
