Haven’t we all dreamed of becoming so rich one day that we could shower our parents with gifts to try and repay somehow everything they’ve done for us? I mean, though it may not be true for everyone, most people probably owe a large portion of their success to their parents, be they our biological parents, foster parents, adoptive parents or even a parental figure.
Of course, if someone becomes, let’s say, a singer, the majority of their success probably comes down to their hard work and talent, but for many, their parents aren’t far off – just in the background supporting and cheering on them.
Well, singer Jacquees actually managed to make this dream we all have of giving back to our parents a reality, and in quite the ostentatious way too – by gifting her $100,000 worth of cash as a wedding gift. Yes, $100,000 in cash.
In a video that’s been posted to Instagram by Miss Rici, who attended the wedding of Rosie Broadnax, Jacquees’s mother, the 24-year-old singer can be seen in the middle of the dancefloor, mic where the couple were wed, in hand, making a speech about how he loves and appreciates his mother before he takes grabs one of the duffle bags by his side and dumps it on the floor to reveal it was filled with bundles of cash.
The singer and songwriter whose full name is Rodriquez Jacquees Broadnax, says he wants to make sure his mother and her new husband will be well set off, and then he heads towards Mrs. Broadnax and gives her a hug, telling her to “do something for yourself”, as the groom, Bobby Thompson, seems overwhelmed with emotion.
Jacquees then heads over to her mother’s new husband and hugs him as well.
The singer has documented his mother’s wedding on Instagram in several posts, one of which is a video of the couple dancing which he captioned with ‘This that love that you can’t put a price on!’

He also shared a series of images of him walking his mother down the aisle, which he captioned, “Protecting my Queen 4L👑💎❤️”, as well as professional footage of the wedding. “I wanna show the whole thing on tv!!” he wrote, adding “LOVE YOU MAMA!!”
The wedding between Rosie Broadnax and Bobby Thompson took place at the Chateau Elan, a luxury winery, and resort in Braselton, Georgia.
