Tyler Perry Helps Local Family Facing Eviction

Tyler Perry Helps Local Family Facing Eviction

Multimillionaire director, playwright and philanthropist Tyler Perry will open his checkbook to help a family facing eviction — if he can find someone to make the check out to.

Xernna Nieves and her family returned hone from a Make-A-Wish event to find an eviction notice on her door. It was one of several eviction notices Nieves has received while living at the Ashley Woods Apartments in Henry County, GA.

Make-A-Wish paid for Nieves, her 16-year-old son John Williams, and his siblings to travel to Chicago to meet John’s idol, NBA Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose.

John has Aplastic Anemia, a condition in which the bone marrow does not make enough blood cells — putting John at risk for potentially fatal infections.

The Make-A-Wish foundation paid for the family’s plane tickets, hotel and transportation around Chicago.

“I felt like I was a celebrity with him,” John said.

But all the while, Nieves knew she didn’t pay her rent for March and April.

She admitted she has had trouble paying her rent after losing her job two years ago.

Despite her money troubles, Nieves says the apartment manager always worked with her in the past. But that was before the family flew to Chicago on an all-expenses paid trip.

“I was told that corporate office told her not to accept any more rent money from us,” Nieves said.

Nieves says her son’s illness prevents her from finding a better situation for her family.

“I don’t have access to public transportation. I don’t have a car. I can’t get around,” Nieves said.

She said she doesn’t receive child support for her four children. The family will be forced to move to a homeless shelter if they are evicted.

“I have no place to go. I really have no place to go,” she told Channel 2’s Jade Hernandez Monday evening.

Tyler Perry saw the family’s plight on WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News and offered to help by paying one year’s rent.

“Thank you. Thank you for watching the news when you did,” Nieves said.

But Perry told Hernandez he was unable to reach the office manager. Hernandez spoke with the manager by phone, but she refused to comment on Nieves’ situation.

The sheriff’s office has already scheduled Nieves’ eviction for Tuesday morning.

    Ok, so the current landlord doesn’t want the money. That’s understandable. Forget about them. She needs to find her a new place and take Tyler up on his offer. Hopefully during that year that she doesn’t have to worry about rent she will get her life together and provide for her children like the rest of us find a way to do. My guess is she is living off of social security that she gets because of her son’s condition, but that is never enough. Stop worrying about Derek Rose and worry about your dang children Miss Xernna.

    Well yes. By her own admisssion she often has problems paying her rent and they have to work with her over and over. Management does get tired of that after a while. I know someone going through that right now and she just got a high paying job. But after years of the landlord getting excuses instead of rent money she has had enough. Grown folk are supposed to make paying bills a priority in their lives. Ain’t nobody got time for excuses month after month, year after year.

    Cool!!!! :woohoo:
    And he can just buy her a new home. Like Move That Bus!!! :woot:

    So all I gotta do to network with the right people is not prioritize and stop paying my bills followed by a stint on fox 5??? YOU CAN’T LIVE ANYWHERE OR WITH ANYONE FREE. If you didn’t pay the rent, what did you do with the money? The trip to Chicago was all expenses paid, so where’s the rent, at least one month? At some point, folks will just be like NO cuz this is your story every month. Rightfully so, you have to lay down the law so that you’re not taken for granted.

    I think people will have empathy for your situation, but you can’t abuse it. You’re going to have to make some changes so that you’re not two months behind or always late with your rent. I have a business or property to run, u can’t pay, my job is to find someone who can….especially after I’ve done the humane thing and worked with you.

    =========
    I’on think you need to read it again. When I was involved in Make A Wish in college, the child make his or her own wish. Sometimes that involved the family, but often times it was meeting their idol. Parents can encourage their kids to wish for certain things, but the kids ultimately make the decision.

    This is such a happy story, thanks Sandra. When I saw it on the news this morning, I had to rewind because I thought the mother was the one sick. She looks ill, maybe from worry. They used to make people like her son live in a plastic bubble.

    Now in this case how are her priorities not in order? Make-A-Wish did not give her that money. They paid for the whole thing. So, that was not up to her. That wish was for the son. Now other than that, I don’t know what she is doing.

    ****************************

    I don't know about anyone else, but that's not what I'm implying. My point is that mama has more pressing issues than an all expense paid trip to meet some baller. She has 4 children. Maybe it is my friend's situation that makes me lack sympathy for this woman. I won't go into detail because my friend might be a lurker, but suffice it to say, and I don't care if she reads this or not, SHE put herself in this position. And even though she needs to be finding a cot dang place to live her dumb azz got her hurr did at the shop this weekend and paid a bill for her son who won't even lift a finger to take her to the hospital when he's standing there watching her stroke out. This is her first paycheck on her new job and she is starting the same shat that got her evicted in the first place. I bet she got a mani pedi too. People need to get their priorities straight. Or not, but don't be asking me for shat when you keep blowing it.

    If he didnt go to Chicago the rent still wouldnt have been paid so whats the problem?

    I dont know the specifics of his illness but if you have ever had a sick child then you know certain other things just have to wait. your rent will always be there but your child may not. If you have a dying child you be like F*ck that rent and spend your resources doting on your baby. again, i dont know about the sickness that he has but I do know mothers who have lost children and bills were the last things on their minds at that time.

Sometimes parents AND Make A Wish step in to help a child prioritize.

    I like Tyler, he does give back.

    The story did not detail if the mother has any ailments, maybe she does as a reason why she may have lost her job before. Her having 4 other kids is irrelevant, it did not state that her kids are age 2 or less (after she lost her job and couldn’t regularly pay her bills)…so saying she should keep onher pants is baseless.

    I agree the Property Management may have reached their limit with a chronic late payer thus they will not accept anymore payments from her. So find somewhere else to stay with the check Tyler is going to give (as any place else she moves is going to want a substantial down payment or 6-12 months of rent in advance due to her history). She may want to move closer to public transportation as Henry County is not close to nothing (I lived there for 8 years and moved back to the city, got tired of the commute and traffic for no reason on a Saturday).

    Her having 4 other kids is irrelevant, it did not state that her kids are age 2 or less (after she lost her job and couldn’t regularly pay her bills)…so saying she should keep onher pants is baseless.
    =======
    Not quite, my dear. When deciding to have a child, you have to think about the future as well. You have to decide if you can provide for that child in the present, and how you will provide for that child in the future if ish hits the fan. If you can’t set aside enough money to take care of another child in your emergency fund, then you should keep your pants on.

    We all got dumb friends
    ****************

    Girl look. I'm getting heated now. I don't care if she's reading. My friend quit her last job over a year ago and decided she was going to live off of unemployment and go to school to get her PMP on the state's dime. You know unemployment don't last but 5 minutes these days. My friend is a project manager contractor in the $50 – $100 per hour range. Getting her PMP would put her in the $100 – $200 per hour range. The problem is that she can make $1000 an hour and it wouldn't matter, because she has a severe spending and hoarding problem. Then when the bish was going through she made her friends feel like we owed it to her to take care of her. One friend gave her $15 for her pocket and this bish bought a skirt right in front of the friend. THEN the next time she asked the friend for money, the friend said she didn't have it and my friend hung up on her. This is the kind of gall it takes for a woman to go on an all expense paid trip for 5 to Chicago when her rent ain't paid. The child is 16. Send him to Chicago and tell Make a Wish yall bout to be homeless and could the rest of the money take care of that. Stay yo butt in town and look for cot dang job. I'm not here for chronically neglegent parents. Sorry. :shrug:

    _______________

    she MIGHT be but then again she might not. and honestly when your child is really sick that in and of itself will make you sick too. when your child feels good that will also make you feel good too so I can see why she let her boy ball out even if only for a weekend. they both needed that break from reality.

    I told yall about my friend who lost her 4 year old to cancer last september. she is just now getting back to normal (started a new job this week) but mentally she wont ever really be the same as the rest of us so its not fair to judge her by the same measuring stick.

    just my 2 cents.

    I can understand the landlord’s position…as a landlord myself, if my tenant does not pay the rent on time I am royally fukked…like for real…so it’s a serious deal when you are constantly faced with working with someone over and over again…

    But then I’m glad that Tyler stepped in a blessed this woman, maybe his gesture will encourage her to get her priorities together and realize what she’s doing wrong to constantly be in the predicament she’s in…sometimes folks need a little “push” within the blessing… :yes:

    Take that check and find you and someplace for your kids to go.
    Move on a busline. Go to Craigslist and find you A PRIVATE renter. NOT an apartment complex. :nono: Tell private owner you lost your job, then your baby got sick, fell on hard times ETC. Make yourself sound like a welfare case… cause you ARE. :shrug: Go to social services and sign up for everything you can. :pc: Start yourself a letter writing campaign to local nonprofits and churches for additional assistance. Maybe you can get a donated cah :steer: DO NOT wait til month of free rent TEN rolls around to get STARTED. You shoulda BEEN DONE THIS. But I digress.

    Once you get all your free shat in order…go find you a JOB to MAINTAIN all you have put into place. KEEP your job.

    Go to church and pray all the time… to give thanks for the hard times as well as the good ones. :pray:

    kamadiva says:

    @Buttercup – she could have planned for the future with her kids, but who knows what happened. She lost her job, so she may have had to use those $$ to try to maintain her family. Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t even saying it is ok to not pay your bills and then expect everyone else to cover for you, but we don’t know the full situation.

I’m just going to have to be a trifling ass bad parent then because I’m going to always put my son’s health and happiness before money. Always.

    I am trying to figure out what I would do in this lady situation. On one had I have a REALLY ill kid.

    But I DO have another child that still has to be provided for.

    Does she suffer b/c her sister is sick? B/c I dropped everything and went to aid her sister and it impacts all of us…how does that factor in.

    I dont know how or where I would start to be perfectly honest.

    Buttercup says:

    @Gelly, Lil Butter was not planned, but when I found out I was pregnant, frivolous spending stopped immedJiately. I had a decent job that would allow me to take care of us both and put money aside for a rainy day. It would’ve been really foolish of me to get pregnant again before getting a significant pay increase though. It would’ve been comfortable living for all 3 of us, but if I didn’t have income, it would’ve been bad news bears. It’s just my opinion that we have to think ahead as well.

    @Who Dat – ever seen the movie My Sister’s Keeper? Parents had a child with Cancer, so they had another so they could use her stem cells for the ill child. The oldest daughter wanted the parents to stop using the little one, so she convinced the little one to file for Medical Emancipation from her parents. It’s a :( and good movie.

    Mother’s Day is the birthday weekend of me, Dubb19, and my mama. It is also the college grad weekend for all our local colleges (bout 7-8)… so eating out is a pain in the AZZ. College grads, Mothers Day, and there still be some HS proms lingerin…

    So instead we going to the male strip show as a family unit. It is $25 pp and my sister paying for everyone. And a late night bite to eat. DONT JUDGE US.

    Porter says:

    This was very kind of Tyler, much respect for his intent. I’ve come to learn in my life, that God allows people to put themselves in certain situation according to what they entitled to. This woman in question has been “getting by” all this time, I’m sure she could have gotten out of this as well. Maybe the fact that she went out of town for two weeks, knocked her off her hustle.

    None-the-less, I was without a job for 10 months and I wasn’t getting unemployment either. For 10 months I had absolutely no money at all coming in, but somehow I managed. I don’t know how I did it, but God knows I did, and I didn’t have to sell my body to make it possible.

    Now, here I am a year later and making over 60k per year and I’m only 32 years old. I’ve always been one of those type of people that have helped people out one situation after another, but after going through what I went through without a job and having no one really to help me. I no longer sympathize with people their problems. Like my cousin told me “if you think about it long enough and hard enough, you will figure out a way to solve your problems.” People need to start being accountable for their lives. During that 10 months of not having a job, I took a job at a retail store making $7.35 per hour. This is coming from a person that was making 45k per year. I didn’t sit around on my a** feeling sorry for myself or going to local news station airing out my problems.

    I think for Tyler, there is some young adult out here that’s working hard, that has initiative to make something out of their life, that doesn’t have kids that could use some help. Stop rescuing irresponsible adults. During my period without a job, I didn’t get any help from any social service, because I don’t have kids.

  144. 144

    This mother has an ill son, who may or may not die from his illness–what’s wrong with them receiving a good experience? Nothing…

    Instead of judging folks like how you live or how people have treated you (for whatever reason) we should be Empathetic :eek:

    I hope this woman finds a job and will be able to provide a home for her kids. I see she spends a lot of time on social media, looks like she was beautiful at one time. I hope she’s not a substance abuser. She is from New York & should move back there for family support. She needs to file child support.
