In an uncharacteristic gesture of kindness, Floyd Mayweather has put up $10,000 to find the person who killed his jeweler, Aron Aranbayev, who died this week from injuries sustained from a hit-and-run on Sunday night.
Aranbayev, 40, was struck by a Dodge Magnum in Queens, New York. His celebrity clients included Jay Z, Drake, Khloe Kardashian, Rick Ross and Floyd Mayweather, among many others.
Mayweather donated the money to Aranbayev’s family, who run the jewelry store Rafaello & Co. in Manhattan. The family initially put up a $25,000 reward to find the hit-and-run driver, but an anonymous donor also added $15,000. With Mayweather’s contribution, the total reward now stands at $50,000.
According to the New York Post, Mayweather reached out to the family to offer to help any way he can. He wrote to them:
“I am here for you guys. We’re family.”
Police are urging anyone who has information on the accident to contact them immediately.
