Jackson also revealed some other celebrities who stepped up financially and assisted the Floyd family including, rapper Lil Baby, Barbara Streisand, and Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez “Tez” Bryant.
Jackson had a personal relationship with George Floyd, he even called him “twin” because they looked so much alike. Jackson vowed to be a father figure to Floyd’s 7-year-old daughter, Gianna, after his death in May 2020.
I’m just continuing to do what I said I was going to do. 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.
I think God has definitely blessed her. Right now, she’s doing the best she’s ever done. She’s happy.”
