Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Surprises His Dad With A New Truck.
Hollywood star has taken to Instagram to reveal he bought his father Rocky a car for Christmas.
The 44-year-old star said he bought the gift for his father as a thank you for all his love and support.
“He’s had a hard life,” Dwayne explained. “This one felt good.”
“My dad, Rocky Johnson is a minimalist. Always has been. Never asks me for much and over the years his needs are always the barest,” the former wrestler continued, adding that his paternal grandfather died when Rocky was 13 years old. “That Christmas, my dad’s mom had her new boyfriend over for Christmas dinner. Her boyfriend got drunk and pissed on the turkey. My dad went outside, got a shovel, drew a line in the snow and said if you cross that line I’ll kill you.”
“The drunk crossed it and my dad laid him out cold as a block of ice,” Dwayne wrote. Soon, the cops were called. “They told my dad’s mom that when her boyfriend regains consciousness, he’s gonna kill your son, so one of them has got to go,” Dwayne said. “In front of the entire family, my dad’s mom looked at him and said get out. He was 13 yrs old and now homeless.”
By Dwayne’s own admission, it’s a “f–ked up true story” from Rocky’s childhood in Nova Scotia.
“He needed the bare minimum then,” People’s Sexiest Man Alive said, “just like does now.”
