Nelly gave his jacket to a fan with disabilities at Charlotte Motor Speedway over the weekend.
In a video posted on Instagram, Nelly is seen taking off his jacket and saying, “This jacket, you make sure you hold it down, OK?”
TMZ reports that the fan’s name is Jacob Lemke, and he was born with a rare, inherited disorder called Lesch-Nyhan syndrome.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, Lesch-Nyhan syndrome is an extremely rare metabolic disorder that occurs before birth, mostly in boys. It causes brain and behavior problems, including severe arthritis, poor muscle control and mental disability. A key symptom is an uncontrollable self-injury, including lip and finger biting or head banging. There is no cure for Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, and the prognosis is poor.
“Nelly is a LEGEND! Giving Jake his jacket after his concert,” the video’s caption reads.
