Somehow, The Rock is only just now getting around to buying his mom a new house for Christmas. To be fair, according to his post about it on Instagram, it’s not the first time The Rock has given her a crib. His parents divorced five years after he bought them a new house in 1999. That would have been a WWE house anyway, now mom is getting a Disney house. I hope he also bought one for Emily Blunt to make up for their Jungle Cruise pay disparity.
Here’s The Rock’s mom, Ata Johnson, receiving a “Golden Ticket” which she can use towards any house in any location in the world.

This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas. All our lives growing up we lived in little apartments all across the country. Lived like gypsies on the road from one state to another. The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5yrs later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated. Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need – houses, cars etc. But the house this time is a special one and the timing is very meaningful. I told her to treat this card like it’s “Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket” because she gets to choose any home she wants – anywhere she wants. I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being. And somehow, somewhere along the line I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen. Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. Dwanta ??
Usually when you get just a card as a Christmas gift, it’s a Starbuck’s gift card or some shit. But not when it’s from Dwanta. Yes, Dwanta. That’s something The Rock came up with, all by himself. Ata seems like a real nice lady so I doubt she’ll pull some shady shit with the rules of the Golden Ticket like I would. Because I don’t see any disclaimers on there. I’d scout out the best bedroom suite at Versailles Palace. I’d knock on the front door of wherever they filmed Downton Abbey and tell them bitches it’s time to pack. I’d have a FX crew from The Bellagio hooking up Fallingwater with a lights and laser show.
Here’s what I don’t get. The Rock, I’m sorry, Dwanta, is one of the richest mother fuckers out here. How is buying his mom a new house notable in the least? She should have several houses already. She should be carried around in a chariot by greased up The Rock proteges. She should have a body woman who hovers around her, anticipating her every possible need or want. Ata should have received a gift certificate that entitles her to have somebody killed, no questions asked. But Ata seems like a nice, sensible woman. She’ll probably pick a modest 3-bedroom nearby and continue to babysit for free.
