YouTuber Timothy DeLaGhetto Pays Off Parents’ $340,000 Mortgage
Tim Chantarangsu, better known by the YouTube community as Timothy DeLaGhetto, caught everyone off guard with this heartfelt promise to his parents.
“My family and my parents are a big part of who I am as a person and why I do what I do. I get my sense of humor from them and I’m just so grateful they’ve raised me with so much love and such open minds…” Tim said in the video introduction.
“Ever since I was a little kid, I made a promise to my Dad and to my Mom…I’m gonna pay off the house,” he continued, “This is the day. I got my funds right and I’m going to surprise them with the check.”
With the help of his growing YouTube presence of 2.5 million subscribers and over 577 million views, and as a cast member on MTV2’s Wild ‘N Out, DeLaGhetto was able to stay true to his promise and give back to his parents in a way that they will always remember.
“I always told them I would buy them a house or pay off the house ever since I was a little kid. When I quit school to pursue the whole entertainment thing, and they saw me working long nights on shoots and editing videos, I wanted them to know that it was for a reason. That’s when it became a serious mission,” Tim said in interview with E! News.
“When I handed them the check I was just super anxious,” he said. “I knew my dad was already expecting it, because I had been asking a lot of questions about the mortgage recently. When the camera was off, [my mom] told me, ‘Now I can finally take a break,’ and that’s when it all hit me, cuz they’ve been working so hard all these years.”
The check totaled $210,000 for the loan company, and an additional $130,000 for the bank.
