Cocoa Brown Responds to Tyler Perry’s $400K Donation for Her New Home After Fire

Cocoa Brown, an actress and comedian, expressed thanks to Tyler Perry for offering her $400,000 for a new home after her previous one burned down. In an interview with TMZ, she expressed gratitude for TP’s and others’ donations to her campaign.

Brown expressed her distress after her home caught fire while she was insuring her son Phoenix’s safety. Following the fire, Brown’s team launched a GoFundMe account, which has raised almost $70,000 of the $100,000 target.

The GoFundMe campaign read, “We’re launching a fundraising campaign to assist Cocoa and Phoenix as they embark on this journey to start anew. Every contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a difference in helping them rebuild what was lost.”

“Let’s come together as a community to show Cocoa Brown and Phoenix that they are not alone. Together, we can help them find light in the midst of darkness and pave the way for a brighter future.”

The 51-year-old expressed “overwhelming gratitude” to those who assisted them on social media. Several Hollywood celebrities, including Tiffany Haddish, Marlon Wayans, Byron Allen, and Sherri Shepard, have supported her cause.

Fox5 said that Brown and her son, Phoenix, lived in a house on Mountain Laurel Way in Fayetteville, Georgia. According to the Fayette County Department of Fire & Emergency Services, firefighters were dispatched to the house in the afternoon of February 18.

Firefighters found the attic and second story of the house entirely engulfed in flames. The staff was evacuated from the building just before a piece of the house collapsed owing to the rapidly increasing weather.

The fire could have started from a lit candle that was spilled on a pile of garments. According to reports, Brown attempted to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher but was unable.
