John Wall donated $50K for young woman’s tuition

TMZ has obtained video of John Wall giving a woman money to pay for her college tuition. The footage is from V Live in Dallas, where Wall is seen throwing fistfuls of cash at the woman dancing on stage as part of her fundraising efforts.

According to TMZ, Wall spent $47,000 in the club this past Saturday night, after scoring 26 points with 16 assists in the win over the Mavericks.

You can watch his charitable donation in action in the video below:

Wall is clearly feeling generous this holiday season.

    That’s a polite way to say “John Wall pays stripper $47K”

    That is pathetic – guys who waste money at strip clubs are idiots – including Wall.

    I am sure that will be the angle that Jurich will use for the KatHo scandal. Louisville was simply trying to help her put her daughters through college as part of a special “Tuition Assistance” program.

      Well, maybe…except that Wall is not in school or being recruited, and he’s using his own money. Still, not a good look though. And I’m sure his endorsers don’t care a whole lot for it, so he was probably giving away more money than he realizes.

    Someone broke the #1 rule of strip clubs: no cameras.

    One of the first rules when you suddenly have a lot of money, is stay away from this sort of stupidity. There are ways to help people & then there is this…..In most cases, you’re just a blown out knee from the slide toward financial bankruptcy.

    I agree with Megaton. This is more about John Wall than it is helping someone.

    The fast train to AntoineWalkerTown.

    It’s his money so he can do what he wants, but this is precisely what someone like Jamal Mashhurn never did.

    Wall shouldn’t have hired Antoine Walker as his financial planner. Love both of those guys, but C’mon man.

    I think he pretty much can do what he wants its his money.

    That satisfaction has waned now that Wall has signed a max contract. After locking up his five-year, $80 million deal in July, he has pivoted quickly and bought a mansion in Potomac, Md., that has just about everything a young player needs.
