Not So Fast! Geoffrey Owens Says Yes To Tyler, But What About Nicki Minaj’s Offer?



From being put on blast and embarrassed to being booked and unbothered — Look at God!

Geoffrey Owens’ recent glow up is something straight out of the movies, and what’s even better is that it’s whole-heartedly deserved. We reported earlier this week how the veteran actor was shamed over working at Trader Joe’s between gigs. And when Tyler Perry got wind of the news, he immidiately offered the former “Cosby Show” actor a spot on his wildly popular OWN show, The Haves And The Have Nots.

Initially, it looked like Owens was going to pass on the opportunity, out of respect for the audition process, but thankfully, he has chosen to accept the role which we’re sure he will be perfect for. According to reports, Geoffrey will join THATHN for a 10-episode arc, which will begin shooting season six next week in Atlanta.

And when the good news rains, it pours! Not only is Perry looking to help a brotha out, so is Nicki Minaj. The rapper announced on her Beats 1 “Queen Radio” show that she plans to donate $25,000 to Owens who she called a “legend in these streets.” Now, Nicki meant no ill-intent behind the offer — she even told Entertainment Tonight, “I’m going to have my team contact him because I hope he doesn’t take it the wrong way. I just want to help him in any way I can.” But, some folks on the internet thought it was still a bit insensitive — and to those critics, Nicki clapped back.

So far, no word on whether Geoffrey will accept the cash — But, do you think Nicki’s handout is harmless or humiliating?
