Floyd Mayweather to pay George Floyd funeral expenses
Floyd Mayweather has offered to pay all of George Floyd’s funeral expenses in four different cities.
According to Hollywood Unlocked, the famous American boxer told the publication’s founder CEO Jason Lee about his commitment to take care of all Floyd’s funeral expenses.
Mayweather added that Anzel Jennings, CEO of his TMT music label, grew up with Floyd in Houston and that Jennings reached out to the Floyd family on his behalf.
The family plans to hold three services in different locations, including Houston, Floyd’s hometown, Charlotte, and Minneapolis.
According to HU, the family is also looking for a fourth location to have a celebration of life. Mayweather also offered to take care of those expenses as well.
While the original conversation with Mayweather was in private, HU’s Jason Lee explained that “I felt it was important to share this because his voice has a global impact that needs to be heard, especially during these times,” he said.
Although, a GoFundMe campaign created by Floyd’s brother, Philonise Floyd, for his memorial has received more than 290,000 donations totaling to $7,583,670, as of Monday evening (June 1).
