Kyrie Irving came through with an incredible gesture for George Floyd‘s family … with Stephen Jackson revealing the NBA superstar recently bought them a new home.
Jackson — who personally knew Floyd and referred to him as his “twin” — vowed to be a father figure for George’s 7-year-old daughter, Gianna, after George’s death in May 2020.
But, the ex-NBAer says he’s not alone in supporting Floyd’s family … joining Etan Thomas‘ “The Rematch” podcast to praise other huge names who have stepped up in support.
“I’m just continuing to do what I said I was going to do,” Jackson said on the podcast. “I said I was going to be my brother’s keeper and take care of his daughter and make sure that her next days are her best days.”
“A lot of my friends … Kyrie Irving bought them a house. Lil Wayne‘s manager bought them a Mercedes-Benz. Barbra Streisand gave them stock in Disney.”
As we previously reported, Lil Baby also stepped up to throw a lavish party for Gianna’s 7th birthday … and Jackson says the kind gestures have helped her deal with the tragic loss of her father.
“I think God has definitely blessed her,” Stack continued. “Right now, she’s doing the best she’s ever done. She’s happy.”
We’ve reached out to Kyrie’s reps for more details … so far, no word back.
