Geoffrey Louis Owens, an American actor popularly known for his role as Elvin Tibideaux on The Cosby Show.
An alarm was raised some days ago by a woman that took and posted a picture of the celebrity Bagging grocery products at Trader Joe’s in New Jersey. Sadly the 57-year old man was bashed by some people.

I had been a working actor for years. Jobs stopped, as they do. I worked in retail. At a flower shop. I passed out flyers. It’s about the work. Work gives you pride and purpose. Your visibility as an actor never goes away. But the money sure does. #geoffreyowens pic.twitter.com/BBzZaBrGBx

While many other people commended him for making a honest living a celebrity or not. Luckily for Geoffrey Owens, Nicki Minaj heard about his situation and gave him 25,000 Dollars.
However, Geoffrey insisted that there were more people that needed money more than he does.
“I would like to give this donation of 25K to the Actor’s Fund in memory of the late, great Earle Hyman — who played Cosby’s father, ‘Russell’, on The Cosby Show — who lived his last many years and died at the Actors’ Home, (funded and run by the Actor’s Fund),” said 57-year-old Owens to TMZ.
Nicki however was happy to be a part of a good cause.
The Cosby show star has since been getting several openings for him like one with Tyler Perry.
