When it comes to helping those in need, YK Osiris does just that. According to TMZ, the Jacksonville, Fla. native also offered to help the family of Tire Sampson, 14, with the remaining funeral costs. If you recall, on March 26, YK took to her Instagram Story, writing, “If anyone knows their family DM me because I want to pay their funeral expenses.”
YK tells us exclusively that he’s been in conversation with the Sampson family for two weeks. YK explains that he has been in contact with a friend of the Sampson family, Kelly Lekia-Ross. Kelly and her husband are the ones who brought Tyr to the theme park, where he tragically lost his life. We asked YK if the funeral was already paid? “She (Kelly) said the final bill will be sent out today. NO ONE has paid yet as I was told. They are trying to have her funeral this weekend which I will be attending,” a said the singer.
YK isn’t the only one who has offered to help pay for Tyre’s funeral. As we previously reported, the D&Z family of TikTok stars have also reportedly spoken with the family to help with the payment. As more information comes to light, all eyes continue to be on the Sampson family. Today, WESH 2 reported that the family and their legal team, attorneys Benjamin Crump and Michael Haggard, inspected the plummeting death ride.
During the investigation, they spent hours reviewing operations and maintenance manuals. In addition to examining the main and remote operating equipment, the collection of warning lights, and the seat where Tyr sat the night he died. Attorney Crump said: “Other than the tragic torture video of George Floyd, I think this is the worst tragedy captured on video that I have ever seen.”
Our thoughts continue to go out to all of Tyr’s family.
