A really unfortunate Christmas Day circumstance for Jim Jones and his mom.
We already had the displeasure of reporting on how Erica Garner, the eldest daughter of police brutality victim Eric Garner, is currently on life support after suffering a heart attack the day before Christmas Eve. Now, another heart-wrenching story has surfaced, this time involving Dipset rapper Jim Jones.
Jim Jones revealed that his mother's home burned down on Christmas day. The rapper filmed himself outside his mom's house, surrounded by fire trucks, as he looked on the bright side of an upsetting situation. "But the best gift of all is that my family, all my family is together, everybody is safe," Jim says. "This is crazy," he added.
It's unclear at this time what caused the fire, however as Jim puts it, "We can always buy new houses new cars new everything but we can't buy a new family."
He shared the following message along with a video on Instagram:
Today I was blessed wit th greatest Christmas gift in my life thus far and tht is my family gettin out of th house safe sound n wit out injuries
We can always buy new houses new cars new evrything but we can't buy a new family
On th flip side watchin my momma house burn touch my soul in ways I couldn't imagine
I wasn't raised wit my mother but my son was and his whole life of memories gone in a flash
If u know me then u know I'm gonna buy my family th biggest house I can afford and fill it wit more love
The devil is always workin but so is my God I got faith

We're hoping the rest of his Christmas is less eventful, but at least everyone is safe and sound.
