Big Boi Gives Puppy To Little Girl Paralyzed In Bounce House Shooting

Big Boi Gives Puppy To Little Girl Paralyzed In Bounce House Shooting”

OutKast may not be delivering any new material in the foreseeable future, but Big Boi's solo career is still going strong thanks to his recent LP Boomiverse. And despite how easy it would be for a guy like Big Boi to get bigheaded, the Atlanta rapper has instead shown off his big heart.

But today he's taking time out to help a little girl in need, a girl who's story he saw on WSB.

Abriya Ellis was shot while playing in a bounce house in April, which left her paralyzed from the waist down. Ellison was in critical condition and became paralyzed, but her spirit lit up when Big Boi gave her a bulldog puppy of her own. The Atlanta native has made a decision to cover the girl's medical bills, and pay for her to have a wheelchair ramp, reports the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

"My brother saw her story that morning and was like, 'Bro, we got to do something for this little girl, '" Patton told Channel 2's Lori Wilson. She has just finished three months of therapy.

Ellison's mother, Andreauna Douglas, said: "She been asking for one for the longest [time] and I know a puppy she can take care of and have responsibility for is going to do nothing but help her".

Her mother says, "Now she's going to have to walk this dog, so she's going to have to get out here and get to walking".

"I've been born ready for a puppy", Abriya said.

Patton and his brother said they will cover the puppy's vet bills and agreed to pay off Ellison's medical bills not covered by her GoFundMe page and renovate her bathroom to make it handicap accessible. He said the girl is "definitely inspiring", and the dog is something "therapeutic" for her.
