Floyd Mayweather Jr. may been in some serious trouble.
According to TMZ, Mayweather allegedly had some goons savagely beat a few workers he suspected of stealing jewelry from him, and the men have supposedly hired legal representation since.
TMZ says the two men who were beaten were hired by Mayweather to work on his Las Vegas homes. After some jewelry went missing, Mayweather reportedly suspected the men of the theft. He then supposedly arranged a meeting with the men at an off-site location.
When the men showed up, they were allegedly beaten by Floyd’s goons nearly to the point of death. The guys used weapons including clubs to beat up the two men.
The two men were hospitalized for several days and had broken arms and legs. They were supposedly adamant that they never stole the jewelry, and Floyd believes that now. But since the beating, the guys have hired a lawyer.
This sort of thing is nothing new for Mayweather. Not only was he charged with felony domestic violence in 2010 for allegedly beating up his baby mama — something he later served jail time for — but he also had domestic violence incidents in 2002 and 2005. Also in 2010, one of Mayweather’s bodyguards was arrested and charged with shooting a man in a parking lot after Mayweather confronted the man. In 2011, a club bouncer sued Mayweather, alleging that the boxer’s bodyguard assaulting him at the club.
Maybe it’s time Mayweather stopped having people beat guys up for him. Maybe it’s also time he stopped having so much jewelry around; it only seems to cause problems for him. Remember when he was robbed of $7 million in jewelry back in 2008? Or how about when his ex-girlfriend allegedly robbed him on one of his fight nights?
