2 Chainz Continues Giving Spirit With House Donation


2 Chainz

The I'm Different star has been helping those in need through his charity, the TRU Foundation, and last year (15) he surprised one disabled soldier by paying his rent for a year, while also handing the keys to a new minivan to a poverty-stricken family.

Now 2 Chainz has revealed his latest act of giving after sharing video footage of himself donating a five bedroom house to a struggling family of 11, which had been facing eviction from its two-bedroom pad.

The rapper learned of the family's struggles via a fundraising page set up by officials at Atlanta's Progression Church to help save the parishioners' home, and he decided to step in to help out by setting them up with a new place and allowing them to live rent-free for a year.

2 Chainz, whose late father was a veteran, has used the funds to help locals in his native Georgia, so far surprising one disabled soldier by paying his rent for a year, and handing the keys to a new minivan to a family in need.

He subsequently skipped the festival and was sued for $75,000 (£50,000) in damages to have the deposit, promotion costs and legal fees refunded.

2 Chainz Pays Veteran's Rent For A Year


2 Chainz

The I'm Different star grew up poor and feels it is "important to give back" and after hearing about the predicament of one fallen soldier, Deirdre Plater's, he decided to use the proceeds from his Dabbing Santa ugly Christmas sweater line to buy her new furniture and pay her bills.

2 Chainz took to Instagram to confirm his generous holiday hand-out, revealing Plater's problems reminded him of his own when he was growing up.

"I remember when we didn't have hot water and I didn't want my friends to know, so I told them it (sic) was something wrong with that bathroom and they couldn't use my mommas," the rap star writes. "I remember using the oven to heat the house, I would stand in the kitchen for hours to stay warm.

Judge Dismisses $10 Million Lawsuit Against 2 Chainz


2 Chainz

Christine Chisholm launched legal action against the I'm Different star, real name Tauheed Epps, in July (15) accusing him of calling her a T.H.O.T., an acronym for "that hoe over there", in a video taken backstage at one of his shows last year (14).

The footage went viral, and Chisholm claimed she lost her job and had been subjected to abuse and harassment. She initially sought $5 million (£3.1 million) in damages, but filed new papers last month (Nov15) asking for $10 million for slander, libel and defamation.

Her lawsuit has now been dismissed by a federal judge in North Carolina, who ruled the term 2 Chainz allegedly used in the video does not constitute "extreme or outrageous conduct", according to TMZ.com.

2 Chainz Accused Of Orchestrating Hit And Run On Lawsuit Plaintiff


2 Chainz

Christine Chisolm filed suit against the I'm Different star in July (15) in relation to an incident at one of his concerts in 2014, when he allegedly referred to her as a "T.H.O.T.", an acronym for the derogatory term 'that hoe over there'. The meeting was caught on camera and after the footage went viral, Chisolm claims she was subjected to abuse and harassment and subsequently lost her job at a barbershop.

She initially demanded $5 million (£3.3 million) in damages, but now she has reportedly stepped up her fight and has doubled her payout request amid new allegations suggesting 2 Chainz arranged to have her followed in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.

In new legal papers, obtained by TMZ.com, Chisolm claims the hip-hop star recently paid a visit to her neighbourhood to ask around for information on her.
