Lauren Jauregui Donates $3000 to Girl Who Killed Allegedly Abusive Father

By  | 

When Bresha Meadows was just 14 years old, she shot and killed her allegedly abusive father, Jonathan Meadows. While the teenager’s mom called her daughter a “hero” for stopping the man who abused her for ~20 years, the girl was arrested, charged with aggravated murder and held in a juvenile detention center in Warren, Ohio. Nine months following her arrest, Bresha accepted a plea deal, which will drop the charges to involuntary manslaughter, allow her to leave the detention center at the end of July and return home to her family for two years of probation following a 6-month stint in a mental health facility. A Meadows family friend set up a GoFundMe page almost a year ago in hopes of getting the teen the best mental health treatment possible in the wake of this tragedy.

The page read, “Thank you to everyone who has supported Bresha Meadows and her family. We cannot thank you enough. In two months Bresha will be transferred to a treatment facility where she will receive the treatment that she deserves and needs. Her family has to pay for her treatment and needs your help. We want Bresha to receive the best treatment, she was treated at this facility in January, she has developed a rapport with the staff and would love to return there for treatment.”

The family asked for $150,000 in donations, which were coming along slowly but surely. But then they suddenly got $3000 by someone named Lauren, which pushed “Bresha’s fundraiser over the top.”

No one knew who the mystery donator was, but fans had an inkling that it was actually Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony. This suspicion was later confirmed by the official #FreeBresha Twitter account.

The 20-year-old hasn’t publicly commented on her donation, but she’s always been super passionate about social issues in the past, so we’re not at ALL surprised that she quietly did something so incredible.
