Snoop Dogg is the next public figure stepping in to assist Josephine Wright in her fight for her home.
The lawsuit — filed in February 2023 — follows after the company reportedly offered Wright $30,000 for her land, which she did not approve, according to her granddaughter, Tracey Love Graves.
“My porch is not on their property,” Wright said, according to CNN.
In June 2023, Wright’s lawyers communicated in writing that Bailey Point Investment allegedly used tactics such as “intimidation, harassment, [and] trespass” in hopes of her turning over her land.
“I want to be left alone,” CNN reports Wright expressed. “I want to live on my property like I have always in peace and quiet.”
“I did it from the heart,” Snoop Dogg told CNN in a statement. “She reminds me of my mother and grandmother.

“We are hoping to raise enough funds to cover the cost of her attorneys, cover any property taxes, and construct a fence to create a barrier between Grandma’s property and the new development which has recently paved a road 22ft from her back porch,” a statement on the GoFundMe page reads. “An area that was once acres of untouched forest, swampland, and refuge to Hilton Head’s diverse wildlife. Any funds that the foundation has remaining will be used as a college fund for her heirs and to replant trees on Hilton Head. She has 7 children, 40 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren, and 16 great-great-grandchildren.”
