George Floyd's daughter, Gianna, got to celebrate her birthday in style thanks to Lil Baby and NBA star Stephen Jackson. The rapper, who sponsored the event, and Jackson, along with Atlanta restaurateurs Ericka and William Platt, threw the 7 year old an intimate, socially distanced L.O.L. dolls-themed party at Atlanta’s Pink Hotel. Future, Lil Baby and Jackson's kids were also in attendance.
“This is a very difficult time for my daughter so we’re very grateful that our extended family is creating such a special experience for Gianna on her first birthday without her father,” said Gianna’s mother, Roxie Washington.
Meanwhile, Jackson, who is also Gianna's godfather and was George's longtime friend, also expressed, "I think I adopted another child, God put me into this position,” says Jackson. “I’m going to do the best that I can."
The athlete also reposted photos from the birthday party on his Instagram Story.
George tragically died in May, after a police officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes. Protests and demonstrations erupted across the nation demanding for racial justice.
In a touching video shared on Instagram in June amid the Black Lives Matter protests, Gianna was seen sitting on Jackson's shoulders. While throwing her arms up as Jackson holds her, a smiling Gianna declares, "Daddy changed the world!"
"That’s right GiGi, 'Daddy changed the world' ????? George Floyd, the name of change. #justiceforgeorgefloyd #ivehadenough Love to all who have love for all ✊?✊?✊?✊?✊?✊," Jackson captioned the clip.
Gianna later thanked West via Instagram, writing, "Thank You Kanye. Because of You I Will have a college Education. Mommy and I are so thankful for you and your family @kimkardashian. "#justiceforgeorgefloyd."
