According to TMZ, Travis Scott has hooked up one of his fans, Peter Valdriz, with $800 to cover his mother’s funeral costs.
Travis replied almost immediately, sending Valdriz a personal message alongside the donation. “Hope this help,” he wrote, “your mama [looking down] on you.” In a fateful turn, Travis’ donation even landed on what would have been his mother’s 52nd birthday.
Apparently, Scott’s goodwill has even encouraged other strangers to chip in.
The young man spoke to TMZ, explaining that Scott’s gesture will not be forgotten. “Knowing that someone is out there trying to help us during this difficult time means the world to us. I personally want to thank Travis Scott for really making a tough day for my family into a day we can cherish.”
