Kyrie Irving contributed $40,000 to a GoFundMe page set up by the granddaughter of 93-year-old Josephine Wright, who is locked in a legal struggle with developers over a South Carolina land her family has owned since the Civil War’s conclusion.

As of this writing, approximately 5,000 people had contributed a total of $250,290 to the fundraising. The target amount is $350,000.

Wright and her husband retired to the 1.8-acre Hilton Head property 30 years ago, according to USA Today. She has been living alone since her husband died in 1998.

Bailey Point Investment LLC purchased all of the land surrounding Wright’s property in 2014. The corporation made a lowball offer of $39,000 to buy her land a few years ago, but she declined.

Bailey Point has become an annoyance to Wright as they build on a 147-home community. Wright reports that when trees were cut down, her car and residence were covered in dust, her tires were flattened, and a snake was allegedly seen hanging from her window.

In February, the corporation sued Wright, saying that her screened-in porch, shed, and satellite dish infringe on its property. Bailey Point wants “just and adequate compensation for its losses, inconveniences, aggravation, unnecessary expenditures of time and efforts, and disruptions.”

Wright countersued, accusing Bailey Point of utilizing “a consistent and constant barrage of tactics of intimidation, harassment, trespass, to include this litigation in an effort to force her to sell her property.”

“Wright…has been deprived of the peaceful enjoyment of her property, her property has been damaged, and she has been threatened,” according to the complaint.

In June, Tyler Perry posted Wright’s story on Instagram and offered any support he could, saying, “Please tell where to show up and what you need to help you fight.” Meek Mill remarked on his post, “Corporate bullying at its finest… this super hero status!”

Both claims are set for a hearing on September 14.

Kyrie Irving agreed to a three-year, $126 million contract with the Dallas Mavericks late last month, according to Shams Charania of the Athletic and Stadium.
