Jay-Z Sets Up Educational Fund For Sean Bell’s Children

Jay-Z has established educational funds for shooting victim Sean Bell’s children, has learned. The hip-hop mogul and Bell’s fiance Nicole Paultre (who later changed her surname to Bell), along with her attorney, worked out the details involving the charitable offer months ago, according to a source close to the rapper. It’s not clear yet the particular details of the agreement, but it is assumed the Brooklyn icon’s contribution will help send both of Bell’s children to college, should they choose to go. A New York judge acquitted the three detectives who fired the 51 shots that took Bell’s life and wounded two of his friends after the group left Bell’s bachelor party in Queens. A number of rallies have been held to protest the controversial verdict. The highly-charged trial was followed closely around the country by many and prior to and after the case, a number of rappers, including Papoose, Joell Ortiz, and The Game, voiced their support for Bell and his family in song.
