Dwayne Johnson 'The Rock' Gifts Friend Who Helped Him When He Was Homless A Car by ashacot: 2:58pm On Jan 07
Hollywood Star Dwayne Johnson Also Known as The Rock for his exploit in the wrestling ring has gifted his friend a car worth #12m. The star remember the friend for everything he did for him when he was homeless. He took to his Instagram page to share the video and recount how his friend helped him.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BParkiY1zRs
He wrote:

]My life (especially my teenage years) has been full of the wildest twists and turns - yet God and the universe had always found a way to put a few people in my path that would change the trajectory of the road I was going down.

Meet one of my lifelong friends, Bruno Lauer — or I prefer to call him, “Downtown Bruno”

My mom and I were evicted off the island of Hawaii and I was sent to Nashville, Tennessee to live with my dad.

When I landed in Nashville, I quickly found out I wasn’t gonna live with my dad.

Shit happens, plans change and that’s the way it goes.

Instead, I told I was gonna live with a guy named Bruno. Who at the time lived in a tiny room at a spot called the Alamo Plaza motel.

Bruno could’ve (and should’ve) said hell no, I’m not takin’ in some kid who I don’t know.

But he didn’t.

He took this punk kid in and we became lifelong friends.

Then ironically - about 9 years later when I had the infamous “$7 Bucks” in my pocket - I started my wrestling career in Memphis, Tennessee and AGAIN - had no place to live and Bruno took me and let me shake up in his trailer, til I could get on my feet.

And hell, when I was 15yrs old, Bruno even gave me his last $40 bucks so I could hustle a crackhead out of his car one night at a honky tonk in Nashville

But the hustle was on me, because when I took off down the road there was a SECOND CRACKHEAD passed out on the floor in the back! �

Wild times at 15yrs old.

Merry Christmas, Bruno and since you helped me “buy” my first car - I figured I could return the favor and buy you one that 100% does NOT have a crackhead in the back seat.

I love you, brother.

Your kindness and heart - helped change my life’s trajectory.

And when you’re ready to retire from “the business” you just say the word.

I got you covered.

We’ll go “downtown”

Enjoy your new ride and give Walls, Mississippi my love and gratitude]�

Some people you help will even become resentful of your success and say you’re showing off. Once they see a smile on your face their bitterness rises.

Great , nice gesture of him. Some friends today are back stabbers. They re so mean that they won't help u even if you're dying. It's not as if they don't know that there's tomorrow o,..
But they choose to do so simply because they don't wish you well.

Cut or stay away from bad or perceived bad friends.
This is 2021.
I submit.
