You never know what someone is going through.
Dee Barnes, a trailblazing hip-hop reporter and former host of the Fox music series, “Pump It Up!,” has fallen on hard times.
She recently launched a GoFundMe campaign because she’s on the verge of being evicted and she’s facing homelessness.
In her campaign, Dee wrote:
Standing in our own truth not the definitions or the expectations is powerful, and this is my TRUTH…Yes, I did post the link to my PayPal, CashApp and GooglePay accounts asking for help because I am in the process of being evicted.
This page was created as an emergency fund to stop the process and the subsequent legal fees. Even though I am facing extreme financial hardship, I keep my head up. I know who I am, I know my worth and I know I’m not alone.
Everyone is dealing with their own different struggles. Some of us less fortunate than others. It may sound cliche but things will turn around in your favor, this is the balance of life ups and downs, so stay strong, and count your blessings, not your problems.
I have the sincerest gratitude for your help and thank everyone for your love and support. ❤
Dee was seeking $5,000 with her campaign. But, she has already raised twice the amount with $10,365 at the time of this post.
If Dee Barnes’ name sounds familiar it’s because she was the woman who was brutally attacked by Dr. Dre in 1991.
She filed a civil suit against him. Dre pleaded no contest and both sides eventually settled the case.
I wish Dee the best and I’m so happy people came through for her.
