Jeezy Hosts Thanksgiving Dinner For Family Of 16 Who Lost Home In Fire

'Tis the season for giving.

'Tis the season for giving, and to put those words into action, Jeezy decided to ease a family’s stress with his latest gesture. According to WSB-TV, the “Put On” rapper hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for a family of 16 who lost their home in a fire.

The Natt family expressed their gratitude for Jeezy’s decision as they look forward to rebuilding their home in Marietta, Georgia. On Nov. 19, their house burned down in the early morning. Reports state the blaze occurred after Victoria and Tevares Natt returned from the hospital with their newborn baby. The family believes the fire began near the back of the home, but an investigation into how the blaze occurred is still ongoing.

Through his gesture, Jeezy wanted to reiterate the fact that once you’re part of a community, it’s your duty to give support when needed. “Being a part of the community, we’re all we got,” he said. “So we’re consistently looking out for each other. That’s what Atlanta’s all about.” As they gather their bearings again, Jeezy offered to handle the Natt family’s hotel bill for the remainder of 2018 as they search for a new abode continues.

When the fire occurred, the Natt family immediately poured out of the house, but the newborn girl was still inside. Tevares Natt swiftly re-entered the home to get the infant before the fire consumed the home.

“I didn’t know where the fire was or how close it was, but he went in, he had to feel around,” Victoria Natt recalled. “She made some type of noise, and he got her out of there. In the nick of time, because when he came out, flames is all we'd seen. Front door melted.”

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family with repair and other living costs.

Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms Past Relationship With August Alsina

As promised, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself to the infamous red table but she wasn’t alone. Will Smith joined his wife to address August Alsina’s claims in a special mini-episode of Red Table Talk that premiered on Friday (July 10).

Jada confirmed that she was once in a relationship with the 27-year-old singer while “separated” from Will. According to Jada, things with Alsina started out as a platonic friendship before turning into something more.

“As time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” she admitted.

The actress went on to clarify that Will never August “permission” to date her. “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” she said. “I could see how he would perceive it as ‘permission' because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a home wrecker — which he’s not.

“I was in a lot of pain. I was broken. I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself, and luckily enough, you and I were going through a process of healing in a much different manner,” Jada told Will. “I would definitely say we did everything we could to get away from each other only to realize that that wasn’t possible.”

Later in the talk, Will asked Jada what she was looking for in August. “I just wanted to feel good,” she said. “And it was really a joy just to heal somebody.”

The couple, who have been together for 25 years, also revealed their relationship mantra: “We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life.”
