TNA Knockout Velvet Sky is putting together a charity campaign for Gregory Shane Helms after the former WWE Superstar and his girlfriend Karen were involved in a serious motorcycle accident Thursday night. Helms remains hospitalized after suffering a broken leg and ankle, as well as other injuries. He is therefore unable to wrestle, which was his only source of income.
According to her official website, Talia-Madison.net, she is accepting donations on Helms’ behalf to help pay for his outstanding medical and surgery bills, as well as everyday expenses. She asks that people donate what they can via PayPal to Talia_Goodies@yahoo.com.
Velvet Sky, who said she would never go on Twitter because she thought it was ‘stupid’, launched an account today via twitter.com/VelVelHoller to help spread the word on her charity campaign. This account has been confirmed by her official website as well as former tag team partner April Hunter.
She wrote, “I know I said I would never get on Twitter but I want to use it in a positive way to help spread the word about donations for Helms.”
It’s been speculated that Helms has been unable to gain employment with TNA Wrestling following his release from WWE last year because Velvet Sky vowed she would quit the promotion if he was brought in. The two were involved in a relationship for several years, and their break-up in 2009 was said to have been tumultuous.
