The glitz and the glamour keep following Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany everywhere they go. Be it the Met Gala, the Kentucky Derby, or the Miami Grand Prix. However, it’s safe to say that these are not the most tranquil times inside the Mahomes household. Younger brother Jackson Mahomes has had legal trouble hanging over his head for over two months. To compound the grief, Patrick and Jackson’s mother, Randi, lost her mother last month. However, Randi’s mourning took a major hit with the news of her son’s arrest.
Grandma Debbie held a special place in every family member’s heart. However, none was closer to the departed than her daughter, Randi Mahomes. The latter took a deep emotional hit after the loss and started a donation campaign in her honor. However, the campaign came to a screeching halt this week after Jackson Mahomes’ arrest.
Randi Mahomes takes donation drive hit after more saddening news
Debbie Bates Martin passed away on April 5 this year, leaving a gaping hole in Patrick’s mother, Randi Mahomes’ life. In honor of her late mother, Randi started a ‘Go Fund Me’ campaign in the middle of April with a donation target of $15,000. “Starting a scholarship fund to honor my momma. Every dollar will be given to a student in my mom’s name,” Randi Mahomes tweeted.
On May 1, she tweeted, “I was able to raise $270 dollars for my mom’s scholarship to honor her yesterday at the pop-up in Lee’s summit. Thanks to everyone who showed up.”

However, the donation drive posts stopped abruptly after that. This leads to speculations based on the coincidence of the timing of the event. Randi’s son Jackson Mahomes was arrested last Wednesday on assault and battery charges and booked in the Johnson County Jail. He was released post a $100,000 bond.
Since the news of the arrest, the accelerated donation campaign has slowed down with the last donation coming 4 days ago. To date, Randi Mahomes’ donation drive has collected $5,570 with 45 donations.
Has Randi said anything about Jackson’s arrest?
Jackson Mahomes’ Overland Park restaurant assault and battery case shocked the entire NFL community, let alone Jackson’s own family. However, except for his 2x Super Bowl MVP brother, almost all his loved ones have spoken out in his support. This includes Brittany Mahomes, who asked online haters to “just shut up.” Randi Mahomes, although not directly addressing the issue, left a cryptic tweet on the day of Jackson’s arrest.
“The devil wouldn’t be attacking so hard if there wasn’t something holy inside of you. Thieves don’t break into empty houses. Just a reminder all, Jesus wins,” she tweeted. Whether this was meant for Jackson is not fully certain. However, she would certainly hope for this episode to be in the back seat as soon as possible.
Losing her mother and going through her son’s legal trouble can’t make the times any easy for the Kansas City Chiefs QB’s mother. The NFL world will hope for Randi to stay strong during this testing time.
