According to the Tampa Bay Times, he recently gifted LaToya Reedy and her teenage son a fully furnished two-bedroom home in St. Petersburg.

Reedy struggled to make ends meet as a nursing assistant before receiving the keys to her new home. She and her kid, AnTrez Reedy, alternated sleeping on the bed in the bedroom they shared at her mother's house for two years.
"I can be at peace, bring lovely memories to my home, and entertain family and friends. I now have a home for my son and myself, which I had always desired," she told the Times of the special moment, according to People.
