Billionaire businessman and politician Clive Palmer will cover six months’ rent on a luxury five bedroom Gold Coast property for a Queensland family who lost their son in a house fire last month.

The Courier Mail reports Palmer also gave the family of seven a vehicle.

A statewide fundraising campaign raised money to purchase white goods and furniture for the grief-stricken family.

Jared Campbell and Belinda Warwick lost their two-year-old, Roman Campbell, in May after the house they were renting in the south-east Queensland city of Logan caught fire.

Palmer said he wasn’t aware anyone knew about his charitable response.

“I normally don’t comment on anything I do for charity,” he said.

The parents described their son Roman as a “beautiful, adventurous and kind hearted” boy who liked to dance.

“We lost our baby boy and no one will ever bring him back,” they said.

The family has been staying in a property at Hillcrest, which had been provided by another unknown benefactor, who offered to pay rent for three months.
