My Houzz: The Fast and the Furious Actor Gifts His Mom a Home Makeover
Chris Bridges credits a lot of his success as a musician and an actor to his mother, Roberta. Bridges is better known as the Atlanta rapper Ludacris, with hit songs including What’s Your Fantasy and Stand Up, and for his recurring role as Tej Parker in The Fast and the Furious film franchise. He says his mother taught him about hard work and dedication. “That’s why I’m where I am and who I am today,” he says.
Years ago, after Roberta retired, she moved into the first house Bridges bought when he became commercially successful. Many of Bridges’ style choices at the time remained in the home, including a painted logo of his record company in the home office. “At that point, I had no sense of style,” Bridges says.
