Nicki Minaj Fulfills Promise to Geoffrey Owens, Gives Him $25,000

You may remember Geoffrey Owens as the former Cosby Show actor who was recently job-shamed for working at Trader Joe’s.

After hearing his story, Nicki Minaj decided she was going to donate $25,000 to him and she just fulfilled that promise.

In a statement to TMZ, Geoffrey revealed that he’s donating the money to a great cause. He said, “I would like to give this donation of 25k to the Actor’s Fund in memory of the late, great Earle Hyman — who played Cosby’s father, ‘Russell’, on “The Cosby Show” — who lived his last many years and died at the Actors’ Home, (funded and run by the Actor’s Fund). I am extremely grateful to Nicki Minaj for enabling struggling actors to continue pursuing their dreams.”

Nicki added in a statement, “I’m happy to be a part of a great cause. I wish Geoffrey much success and want him to know how loved he is. Rest in Peace to Earle Hyman.”

Bill Cosby Sentenced to Three to Ten Years in State Prison, Deemed a 'Sexually Violent Predator'

Bill Cosby Sentenced to Three to Ten Years in State Prison, Deemed a 'Sexually Violent Predator'

Bill Cosby has been officially sentenced to “three to ten years” in state prison after being found guilty of the sexual assault of Andrea Constand, the AP reports. He’s expected to go to prison immediately.

The 81-year-old disgraced comedian, who had dozens of women come forward with stories of alleged sexual assaults, was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault for the 2004 incident that took place in his home in Philadelphia, Penn.

During the sentencing, the judge declared Cosby to be a “sexually violent predator,” meaning he will have to register with the sex-offender registry, report to authorities and undergo monthly counseling.

Cosby‘s maximum sentence could have been up to 30 years in prison, though cases similar to this with someone with no prior convictions have often resulted in one to four years.

In her victim statement, Andrea wrote, “Bill Cosby took my beautiful, healthy young spirit and crushed it. He robbed me of my health and vitality, my open nature, and my trust in myself and others. I’ve never married and I have no partner. I live alone. My dogs are my constant companions, and the members of my immediate family are my closest friends….Thank you to all of the friends, old and new, who have stood by me. You know who you are, and each and every one of you has made a huge difference. Please know that.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber Reveals Which Roles Taylor Swift May Play in 'Cats' Movie

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is revealing some details about Taylor Swift‘s involvement in the Cats movie adaptation.

“We’re beginning to rehearse now,” Andrew told Vulture.

He added that Taylor might either play Bombalurina (the flirty cat) or the Demeter (the skittish cat). They sing “Macavity the Mystery Cat.”

“She’s going to play one or other of the ‘Macavity’ girls. Well, basically, [director] Tom Hooper thought it was a really good idea, and of course, she loves cats,” Andrew added. “We’ll see. I mean, I haven’t met her, so I’m looking forward to meeting her and seeing her [at work].”

The movie is also set to star Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen, and will be released on December 20, 2019.
