Big Boi Pays Medical Bills For Girl Paralyzed In Shooting!


Big Boi is doing big things! Read below.

OutKast rapper Big Boi is helping a 5-year-old girl who was paralyzed when someone shot her while playing in a bounce house in April.

Abriya Ellision had several surgeries following the shooting in South Fulton County. She completed her rehabilitation program at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta last week and Big Boi has offered to pay her medical costs that were not covered by her GoFundMe account. Abriya’s family received  nearly $3,000 of the needed $5,000.

However, that’s not all. The rapper is also  paying for Ellison’s wheelchair-accessible bathroom and gave the young girl a puppy she named King.

Big Boi told Channel 2 his brother came across Ellison’s story and suggested Big Boi to help her.

“There’s nothing like having a companion of a service dog or something therapeutic that you can love on (and) that can love you back,” Big Boi told Channel 2. “She’s been through a lot, and to see how strong she is now, that was just … very inspiring. It just touched our heart, so we’re just trying to do what we can to help.”
