As previously reported, Tyler told Josephine that he would stand by her back in July after learning of her legal battle with the Bailey Point Investment Group. According to reports, Bailey Point wants to purchase Wright’s Hilton Head land, but she is reluctant to part with it as it has been in her family for many generations. After that, BP launched a lawsuit to take possession of her land.

Wright revealed to news organization WSAV-TV how BP obtained local authority to develop 29 acres of land behind her house, but she declined an offer to purchase the house. Wright filed a lawsuit to take possession of the land she claims has been in her family since the Civil War after BP harassed her after she declined.

Tyler is going to give Josephine a completely new home to live.
