Travis Scott has sent $800 to a fan to help pay for his mom's funeral as part of his $100,000 giveaway to fans.
Travis Scott has helped pay for his mother's funeral.
Peter Valdriz reached out to the 'Butterfly Effect' hitmaker in the hope he could be one of the lucky recipients of part of the $100,000 the rapper has been giving away to fans on Twitter to promote his new album 'Astroworld' as he needed the money to cover the costs for his final goodbye to his beloved parent, who passed away from a brain virus last week.
To catch Travis' eye, Peter tweeted: ''This would definitely help with my Mom's funeral cost. It's worth a shot. $PeterValdriz #ASTROWORLD (sic)''
And one of his friends posted: ''my best homie @impistolpete33 mom just passed away just recently. This would help him a lot for his funeral cost for his mother. It would mean a lot to me if he got at least something to help him out. #ASTROWORLD this for you & Tita, Peter (sic)''
In response, Travis - who has six-month-old daughter Stormi with girlfriend Kylie Jenner - sent $800 via Cash App with the message: ''For not much but hope can help. Ur mom looking down on ya (sic).''
Peter then expressed his thanks to Travis, while sharing a photo with his mom, who would have celebrated her 52nd birthday on Wednesday (15.08.18).
He posted: ''Happy 52nd Bday Mom! Travis Scott @trvisXX I really want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. #RIPMOM (sic)''
And he admitted the kindness of the 'Antidote' hitmaker had helped him through a ''tough'' day.
He told TMZ: Knowing that someone is out there trying to help us during this difficult time means the world to us.
''I personally want to thank Travis Scott for really making a tough day for my family into a day we can cherish.''
Travis announced his giveaway earlier this week to help his fans because he knows life can be ''hard''.
On Tuesday (14.08.18), he announced: ''SO I KNOW ITS HARD FOR THE KIDS
SO I DECIDED TO UNLOAD MY BANK ACCOUNT ON U GUYS. IM BUSTING DOWN $100,000 AND GIVING AWAY TO ANY FANS THAT CAN TWEET ME THERE CASH TAG WITH LYRICS FROM ASTRO. GANG !! (sic)''
Several of his followers have taken to the micro-blogging site to share the various amounts they received, ranging from anywhere between $50 to $1,000.
Within five hours of announcing the cash giveaway, Travis had spent $25,000 of his limit.
