Nicki Minaj Has Not Paid Geoffrey Owens Her $25,000 Pledge https://t.co/0uoeuykw48— TMZ (@TMZ) September 12, 2018
Last week, Nicki Minaj swore she'd be giving $25,000 to actor Geoffrey Owens after he was job-shamed for working at Trader Joe's.
This week, TMZ reports that the rapper has yet to reach out to Owens in any way to even start the donation process.
Owens, however, "is not looking for a handout," according to the outlet. He would reportedly give the money to charity if he were to receive it.
Besides, the former Cosby Show star has landed a 10-episode arc on Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots and a guest slot on NCIS: New Orleans since pics of him ringing up groceries went viral.
