Wife beater Floyd Mayweather wanted light punishment for Ray Rice

Floyd Mayweather honey coffeeRay Rice has found very little support over the past few days in the wake of the video that was released showing him punching his now-wife Janay Palmer and knocking her unconscious. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the few people who decided to show sympathy for the former Baltimore Ravens running back.

On Tuesday, Mayweather said he believes the NFL should have stuck to its original decision to suspend Rice for two games.

“They had said that they had suspended him for two games,” Mayweather said, via MLive.com’s David Mayo. “Whether they saw the tape or not, I truly believe a person should stick to their word. If you tell me you’re going to do something, do what you say you’re going to do. But once again, I’m not in the NFL, so I can’t really speak on the situation.”

He’s not the first person to make that argument, as some feel the NFL has shown a great deal of hypocrisy by knowing what was on the tape and acting outraged now that the public has seen the footage. The next point Mayweather made was pathetic.

“I think there’s a lot worse things that go on in other people’s households, also,” he said. “It’s just not caught on video.”

In other words, Rice’s punishment should have been lighter because it’s not his fault he just happened to be caught on video. Plenty of people get away with it, so Rice was just plain unlucky, right?

Mayweather also wishes “nothing but the best” for Rice and his wife and expressed sympathy over what Rice has to go through. Floyd said he would be crushed if someone told him he couldn’t box, so he understands how Rice must be feeling.

You know what the other reason is that Mayweather can relate to Rice? The boxing champ has been convicted of domestic assault twice and had to spend more than two months in jail for it back in 2012. His ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson also recently accused Mayweather of threatening her with a gun and assaulting her multiple times. It’s no surprise he understands where Rice is coming from.

Josie Harris says Floyd Mayweather deleted her Instagram account over tell-all book

Josie Harris

Josie Harris lost her Instagram account for a handful of days, and she says Floyd Mayweather was behind the move because he wants to silence her.

Harris, who has three children with Mayweather and was the victim in the assault case that led to Mayweather being jailed in 2012, said on Twitter Sept. 4 that her Instagram account had been deleted. Harris believes Mayweather shut down her account to silence her from promoting her upcoming tell-all book about her relationship with him.

Harris rarely uses her Twitter account because Instagram is her preferred social media network, but she started using Twitter frequently while her account was disabled.

On Tuesday, Harris implied on Twitter that Floyd was behind her Instagram account being deleted:

Harris’ Instagram account was reinstated Tuesday after she sent an email to the social media company.

Bossip, which posted a copy of Harris’ email, says Harris is considering legal action against Mayweather. They say Harris believes Mayweather has a contact at Instagram who helps him shut down accounts. Bossip noted that both Shantel Jackson and Princess Love — two ex-girlfriends of Floyd — had their accounts shut down after getting on his bad side.

Shantel Jackson lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather accuses him of threatening her with gun, multiple assaults

Floyd Mayweather Shantel Jackson

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Floyd Mayweather Jr. is being accused of assaulting one of his girlfriends.

Floyd’s ex-girlfriend/fiancee Shantel Jackson, who broke up with him 4-5 months ago, is now suing the boxer and accusing him of assaulting her multiple times and threatening her with a gun.

Jackson, who is currently dating rapper Nelly, retained Gloria Allred as her attorney and is seeking a jury trial. She hopes to be awarded damages and obtain an injunction/restraining order against Floyd.

According to a statement from Allred, Mayweather committed the following against Jackson:

– invasion of privacy
– assault and battery
– defamation
– false imprisonment

Jackson says she met Floyd in 2006 when she was 21 and working at an Atlanta restaurant. He eventually moved her out to Las Vegas where she became one of his girls. The two eventually became engaged and she stuck with him when he served his jail sentence for domestic violence committed against ex-girlfriend Josie Harris.

According to the statement and complaint from Allred, Jackson says Mayweather first assaulted her in Aug. 2012 after he was released from prison.

“He twisted [her] arm, choked her and forcibly took her phone away from her to look through it,” the complaint states, according to TMZ.

In Feb. 2013, Jackson says she asked Floyd to go to counseling with her. He said he would and never did. She eventually broke up with him in April and moved to Los Angeles, but Floyd wanted her back and sent a jet to fly her back.

Jackson alleges that Floyd assaulted her again when she returned.

Floyd allegedly “bent her arm, restrained her, and pointed a gun at her foot, asking ‘Which toe do you want me to shoot,’ ” according to the complaint.

Despite being engaged to Floyd, she was uncomfortable with the lifestyle as one of his girls. She says he took away her possessions and had his staff members follow her around if she tried to leave the house.

Floyd grew so upset with her he once allegedly demanded at gunpoint that she remove her engagement ring.

The two were not together for a good part of 2013, but Floyd flew Miss Jackson out to Las Vegas for his September fight against Canelo Alvarez last year. The two continued to be intimate, because Shantel says she became pregnant in Nov. 2013 with twins fathered by Floyd. She had an abortion in Jan. 2014.

On May 1, Floyd posted a photo and message on social media indicating that he broke up with Miss Jackson because she got an abortion. This act from Floyd allegedly was in retaliation to Jackson posting a picture on Instagram of her with Nelly.

You know what this tells us? Everything we’ve reported about the relationship between Jackson and Mayweather over the past few years has been accurate. Since 2012, they’ve really been on and off, mostly because of Jackson’s dissatisfaction with Floyd.

You may call her a golddigger for filing the suit, but at least she got the courage to stand up to the abuse from Floyd.

Floyd Mayweather acknowledges he’s not the best reader

Floyd MayweatherFloyd Mayweather Jr. held a conference call with the media on Thursday to promote his Sept. 13 fight with Marcos Maidana and ended up talking about the subject of his reading.

Mayweather acknowledged he’s not the best reader, but the undefeated boxer emphasized there is a difference between being intelligent and being educated.

The first three questions of the conference call all had to do with 50 Cent’s reading challenge to Floyd that sparked the whole controversy.

Below is a transcription of the questions and answers via Mayweather’s PR team:

Q: Do you think that 50 Cent crossed the line by suggesting that you have trouble reading in that Instagram video that he posted?

Mayweather: My thing is this, I try to focus on Maidana. I don’t really focus on that. I think people can believe whatever they want to believe. Intelligence and education are two different things. I’m happy with my career and I wish 50 Cent nothing but the best; when I’m in training camp I try to focus on my training. You have to realize that the circus is for clowns and my job is just to focus on my job, which is boxing. I know what I can and I can’t do, so I can care less.

Q: Were you surprised that 50 Cent went in that direction and talked about a topic that would be that sensitive?

Mayweather: I don’t even worry about that. Like I said before, that’s not my focus. I know what I can and I can’t do. You guys don’t know when you’re dealing with pay-per-view you have to read at least 60 to 70 teleprompters, and I don’t think they could choose a better person for the job than myself. I go out there and I do it with no problem.

I just feel like basically I’m not judged by a person, I’m judged by God. Reading does not define my place in boxing history. Will God not let me in heaven because I didn’t read like a news anchor? Me, myself, I would be perfect at reading if it was how I made my living and fed my family. Once again, intelligence and education are two different things.

Making fun of a person because they can’t read is not funny. It’s tragic. Second, if I really couldn’t read it would make my accomplishments even that much more amazing. I don’t know if 50 Cent is a boxing promoter, I don’t know if he’s making music; I really don’t know. My focus is on Floyd Mayweather, and I wish 50 Cent nothing but the best.

Mayweather was then asked about the audio from the radio station that showed him struggling to read. Mayweather came up with a bunch of possible explanations for why he struggled to read in the audio clip and then reiterated that reading is not an indication of his intelligence.

Floyd Mayweather’s baby mamas Josie Harris and Melissia Brim fighting on Instagram

Josie Harris Melissia Brim

Floyd Mayweather Jr. can’t avoid drama in his life even when he’s not the one involved. This time there is beef between his baby mamas.

Floyd has four children: three with Josie Harris (the woman he assaulted and went to jail for – pictured left) and one with Melissia Brim (pictured at right). For some reason, Harris decided to take a huge swipe at Brim over Instagram Saturday night.

Here’s what Harris wrote about Brim in an attacking message:

Josie Harris Instagram

So that’s Harris acting out because it’s pretty clear she’s jealous of what Brim is getting from Mayweather. I can’t decode that full message, but the reference to Miss J’s old house, shoes and bags is probably about Melissia getting some of Shantel Jackson’s leftover belongings (Jackson is Floyd’s ex-fiancee). The question about her son and father was a way of trying to embarrass Brim; the father supposedly is in jail.

It’s pretty obvious that Josie is jealous Melissia is getting attention and things from Floyd. Melissia is still part of The Money Team and even has shared screenshots of herself Facetiming with Floyd, so she’s obviously in the picture compared to Josie, who seems to be in a relationship with another man lately.

In response, Melissia shared a picture of her with Floyd. She added this caption:

Floyd Mayweather Melissia Brim

“That face you make when someone irrelevant tries to use you to get their followers up lmao Few things about MelissiaRene…. I know who I am, I don’t give a damn what others think about me, I play the FRONT never the BACK , I’m a Boss, I worry about self because self preservation is the law of the land & last, but not least, I’m a woman before anything & if I have somethin to say I’m not hiding behind NO ONE or ANYTHING…. #HAPPYSUNDAY”

That’s pretty obviously her way of taking the high road in this.

Way to set a great example for your children, Josie. It’s no wonder you and Floyd got together; you both are petty and can’t avoid little beefs and drama.

Floyd Mayweather Sr: 50 Cent is a ‘player hater,’ should fight my son

Floyd Mayweather Sr.Floyd Mayweather Sr. was asked for his thoughts on the ongoing feud between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. during an interview with “The Vegas Take” on Fox Sports 760 Las Vegas on Thursday, and per usual the elder Mayweather did not disappoint. From what we could understand, Mayweather Sr. is not happy with 50.

“50 Cent, let me tell you something, 50 Cent seems like he’s got a problem since Floyd left him,” Floyd Sr. said. “Whatever it was that made Floyd leave, he left. Floyd had nothing else to say about it. That’s 50 Cent that keeps putting stuff all over … He’s a world known singer and acting like a kid, man.”

Mayweather Sr. also pointed out how 50 Cent was asked to spell some word (we aren’t sure what he’s talking about) and couldn’t do it. He then called the rapper a “player hater.”

“All the hip-hop fighters, all the R&B fighters, all of them — I don’t give a damn if they’re white, black, Jew, mexican whatever, pretty much all of them have dropped out of school,” Mayweather said. “My son ain’t got no reason to look back about nothing. He did his job. He ain’t gotta worry about nobody like 50 Cent because 50 Cent is a player hater.”

And of course, Mayweather Sr. thinks 50 should stop talking and put the gloves on if he has a problem.

“Put the video out when he go up against Floyd, he weighs over 100-something pounds over Floyd,” he said. “Let him go against Floyd, then we’ll have something to talk about. Floyd will stop all that s— in the papers. There won’t be no more said when Floyd gets ahold of his ass.”

While 50 recently said he loves Mayweather Jr. and just disagrees with the concept of The Money Team, it’s obvious he is determined to get under the champ’s skin. He seems to have pissed Floyd’s dad off in the process.

50 Cent opens up about relationship with Floyd Mayweather

floyd-mayweather-50-cent

For whatever reason, 50 Cent has launched a full-blown social media assault on Floyd Mayweather Jr. over the past couple of weeks. It started with 50’s spin-off on the Ice Bucket Challenge when he offered to donate a ton of money to the charity of Mayweather’s choice if Floyd could read one page of a Harry Potter book. The feud has snowballed from there.

The interesting thing about all this is 50 Cent and Mayweather used to be best friends. During a recent interview with Miranda Johnson of XXL Magazine, 50 tried to explain how his relationship with the champ went south.

“Floyd is one-dimensional,” he said, via Edward Chaykovsky of BoxingScene.com. “The Money Team concept is one-dimensional. We actually started pushing it during the recession. It was cool because his viewership was going up but it’s not actually the right message for me and who I am.

“So I started working with the United Nations and The World Food Program and Feeding America. Providing meals through the SK Energy Shots and that was at the same time because I started realizing that this is not the right concept of what you should present to the public.”

In other words, 50 decided that Floyd is too selfish. He said that Mayweather does things he doesn’t understand, which results in 50 becoming agitated and doing things in response — like posting this hilarious Manny Pacquiao meme mocking Floyd. However, 50 insists he loves Mayweather like a little brother.

“I don’t hate him. I love him, actually,” he said. “Entering the sport of boxing is a reflection of that relationship. He doesn’t make any money away from the sport of boxing. That tells you when he’s done fighting, he’s done period. I just try to encourage him to do things away from the sport…

“It’s pretty tough to digest the concept that we don’t spend money the same. He spends all of his money. He lives a richer lifestyle than we actually live day to day. In the end, it’s not a sustainable lifestyle. I’ll have to help him when it gets too tough. We’ve had conversations about this.”

Could this be why Mayweather recently welcomed Warren Buffett to The Money Team? Maybe he realized that he needs to explore other avenues for making money, especially since he is in his late 30s. I doubt he’s worried just yet, regardless of what Curtis has to say.
