IS IT TRUE WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT THE ROCK?
DWAYNE “The Rock” Johnson plays a tough guy in the movies, but in real life he’s a big softie with a HUGE heart!
And to thank his mom Ata for everything she’s done to help him become so successful, Dwayne gave her a brand-new white Cadillac SUV for Christmas.
He shared the special event with fans on his Facebook page recently, posting photos of his emotional mother as she set eyes on the luxury car for the first time.
“At 14, I saw my mom crying about our only car being repossessed,” Dwayne wrote. “This felt good. Merry Christmas, Mom.”
The 6-foot-5 former wrestler has also been generous with his alma mater, the University of Miami. He donated $2 million to the school’s Newman Alumni Center and another $1 million to help renovate the school’s football facilities. It’s the university athletics department’s largest alumni donation in history.
And he can certainly afford it – his estimated net worth is a whopping $70 million.
Dwayne and his ex-wife Dany – who share custody of their 11-year-old daughter, Simone – also founded The Rock Foundation, which funds a number of programs for underprivileged, at-risk youth, as well as children suffering from illnesses or disabilities.
“Dwayne has a heart of gold and he lives his life like that every day,” a family friend praised. “He has definitely done his mama proud.”
