Tamina Recalls The Chain Of Events That Led To The Rock Buying Her A House

Last month, The Rock bought his cousin Tamina a house. This was captured on video, and Tamina’s reaction is one of genuine gratitude.

Since then, the video has gone viral of the pair embracing when Tamina sees the house The Rock has gifted to her. Now, while speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Tamina reflected on the surprise.

“I was standing outside on the driveway and he wouldn’t let me come in, he was like, ‘Wait.’ I said ‘Okay.’ He drove me up to the house, I came up to the driveway, he walks out and that’s how this happened. He said ‘come on in’ and he covered my eyes. That’s when you see it, exactly like that,”

“Not in the sense in that, the way he was setting this up, I didn’t know he was going to do it like this. I’d be like, ‘Hey, here you go, here’s your house.’ Hell yeah, I’d go in, do the whole get the Chinese food, sit on the floor, sleep on the sleeping bag. I’m down with that, I would have been happy in an empty house. I’ll get my furniture and slowly move in. I was hopping from place to place to place all the time. Everything I have, it goes to my kids. You work hard for your kids and family. ‘Let me get this Louis Vuitton purse,’ No, you have bills to pay.”

That’s just his heart. Dwayne has always been that way. Ever since we’ve been young, this is all I’ve known him to be. he’s always been that long, giving person, and not a lot of people get to see that side of him. This man has done above and beyond for me, more than I can even imagine. That’s my brother. I love that man.”

Tamina is clearly very grateful to her cousin for the gift he gave her. Elsewhere in the interview, Tamina would discuss Liv Morgan and more.
