He does have a heart!
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban never has been shy about sharing his (usually brash) opinions, but deep down, we've always known he is a good guy.
He proved he had a soft side recently when he helped a pair of Mavs fans live out their dream.
Monica Wilkinson and her fiance, Leroy, had been planning to marry since 2009, but a string of sad and expensive events, including multiple miscarriages and the stillbirth of their daughter, put the nuptials on the back-burner.
In January, Wilkinson was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer. The couple reached out to multiple charity organizations to see if anybody could help them finally make their dream come true, and unfortunately, no one was able to help.
One day, Wilkinson says, she got a call from Cuban's assistant saying the Mavs owner was going to pay for their wedding.
After the initial shock wore off, the Watauga couple enjoyed a lavish wedding last month.
"I felt like a princess," Wilkinson told Janet St. James of WFAA.
When asked if he had a message for Cuban, Leroy simply responded, "Thank you. She means the world to me."
