Shantel Jackson broke up with Floyd Mayweather, but she definitely got her Instagram back

Shantel Jackson Instagram

Shantel Jackson and Floyd Mayweather were on the rocks in their relationship several times last year, but the two have officially broken up.

Floyd and Miss Jackson were together for around four years and even engaged to be married. The first report about their separation came last June, and several other reports followed. But Miss Jackson attended Floyd’s September fight with Canelo Alvarez, and a few days later Floyd told Howard Stern the engagement was still on. Floyd was probably just trying to save face at that point.

In February we shared that the relationship had been over for a few months, and just a few days ago TMZ confirmed that the relationship is definitely over. But there was some drama in between, which seems to be the pattern for Floyd.

Last week, MediaTakeOut reported that Floyd shut down Miss Jackson’s Instagram account. Apparently Floyd owned the account as part of his business dealings and had her sign an agreement under those pretenses. He let her keep the account after the breakup, but he supposedly repossessed it after she was using it to promote club appearances. Jackson’s rep confirmed that the account was mysteriously shut down for a few days.

I didn’t really notice much with her Instagram account, except she did go silent on April 9 and 10 — right before MTO published their story — despite previously posting things to her account on almost a daily basis. So that definitely seemed to explain things. Whatever the case, Miss Jackson definitely got her Instagram account back.

Since April 11, Miss Jackson has been uploading pictures to her account every day. She’s even promoted club appearances she’s making. And it’s definitely the same Instagram account where she had over 200,000 followers, so Floyd obviously let her keep it.

Below are a few of the pictures she has been sharing on her Instagram:

Floyd Mayweather allegedly had goons savagely beat workers he suspected of stealing

Floyd Mayweather

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?

Amir Khan rips Floyd Mayweather on Twitter for being full of s—

Amir Khan

Amir Khan is rightfully frustrated with Floyd Mayweather Jr., and he expressed his unhappiness with the undefeated champion in a tweet sent on Monday.

Amir Khan tweet

Khan’s frustration with Floyd stems from Mayweather’s decision to choose Marcos Maidana for his May opponent. Mayweather had been negotiating with Khan for months and seemed like a near certainty to get the fight. He even pulled out of a December fight with Devon Alexander because he didn’t want to jeopardize his big pay day with Floyd. But Floyd never signed the contract and instead chose to fight Maidana, who beat Adrien Broner in December.

Not only did Floyd string Khan along for months, but he also ran a bogus poll on his website where he promised he would let the fans decide his next opponent. The fans chose Khan over Maidana, but Floyd still opted to fight Maidana.

Khan’s tweet about Floyd being full of it came after Khan initially rolled with the punches. With Floyd choosing Maidana, Khan said he would fight Broner next and wanted Floyd after that.

Floyd responded and said he would give Khan a fight if Khan beat Broner, which he said wouldn’t happen.

Broner badly wanted a rematch with Maidana, but Floyd stole his fight. Khan and Broner may not be headed for a fight anyhow, because it sounds like Broner wants to drop down to 140, while Khan wants to move up to 147.

Floyd Mayweather chooses Marcos Maidana even though Amir Khan won poll

Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced via his Twitter account Monday that he will be fighting Marcos Maidana next, which goes against his word.

Back on Feb. 3, Mayweather said on Twitter that he would be holding a poll where fans could vote on his next opponent. Mayweather touted the poll by saying he would “let the fans decide”:

That seemed to be a bunch of hooey because Mayweather is not the kind of person who lets anyone dictate his business. Sure enough, he was full of crap.

Khan won the poll by nearly 5,000 votes, but Mayweather still announced he would be fighting Maidana:

Amir Khan Floyd Mayweather poll

Madiana and Mayweather are scheduled to meet on May 3, which is a typical weekend for Floyd to fight. They will likely fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, which is where Floyd always fights.

I’m not at all surprised that Floyd chose Maidana considering he’s the better opponent. I’m actually more excited about this fight than a Floyd-Khan bout. I just wanted to post this to remind you that Floyd is full of crap and that you shouldn’t fall for his social media gimmicks (you know, like when he tells you how much money he won on sports bets without sharing how much he’s lost).

Shantel Jackson supposedly broke up with Floyd Mayweather over all his side girlfriends

Floyd Mayweather Shantel Jackson

Shantel Jackson supposedly broke up with fiance Floyd Mayweather Jr. a few months ago, and the reason has to do with Mayweather’s side girlfriends.

Media Take Out reported that Shantel Jackson, whom Floyd calls “Miss Jackson,” broke up with the boxer because she wants him to be more faithful.

As we’ve pointed out in the past, Mayweather has said that men should be allowed to have as many girlfriends as they want so long as they can support them all. Mayweather has multiple girlfriends at a time — side chicks as people call them — though Miss Jackson has been his main girlfriend and the woman to whom he was engaged. But she apparently grew tired of all his drama with other women and wanted him to be more faithful.

MTO says Shantel wanted Floyd to give up the side girlfriends, or at least most of them, in order to get married, but he wouldn’t agree to it because he wants to be able to have multiple side chicks. Floyd supposedly even offered to marry Shantel without a prenuptial agreement — meaning Miss Jackson would have been able to receive half of what he’s worth in case of divorce — so long as she let him have multiple side girls, but she wouldn’t agree to those terms.

I don’t necessarily know if Floyd would have agreed to a deal like that, but I can believe he tried hard to get Miss Jackson back. The two have been on and off for a while, but Floyd has usually made her his top priority.

You may recall that there was a lot of drama between the two last year. Floyd and Shantel broke up last year, and Floyd was getting pretty heavy into another girl from his entourage, Princess Love. Princess left Floyd for Ray J, and Floyd insisted in an interview with Howard Stern that he and Miss Jackson were still engaged. That was back in September. It’s been five months since then, and it sounds like the engagement is off.

Not only do we have this report saying the two are apart and that it’s because of Floyd’s side chick demands, but Miss Jackson’s Instagram activity also has suggested that she is single. When women start posting more and more sexy photos of themselves, as Miss Jackson has been doing, it’s generally a sign that they’ve recently become single. They post the sexy photos to 1) boost their self-esteem by receiving likes and compliments on the pics 2) make the ex feel jealous 3) potentially attract new suitors.

Shantel even shared this note on her Instagram account this week, right before MTO’s report came out: (head to page 2 of the story to see the rest)

Floyd Mayweather Jr: I did not bet $10 million on Broncos in Super Bowl

Floyd MayweatherA rumor began floating around the internet last week that Floyd Mayweather Jr placed a $10 million bet on the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl. If the rumor was true, Mayweather would have lost a ton of money on Sunday night. However, the undefeated champion insists that was not the case.

“Congratulations Seattle Seahawks for winning the Super Bowl!” Mayweather wrote on Instagram Sunday night. “For the record, I did not bet $10 million on the Broncos. As a matter of fact, I didn’t bet at all. I can’t control what rumors that are put out there. Good or bad publicity keeps me relevant. The only thing I would bet $10 million on is myself. From the looks of my record, I’m a guaranteed win!”

Mayweather also wrote on Twitter that he would have bet on the Seahawks if he did place a wager.

Had the Broncos won the game, I guarantee Mayweather would not have taken the time to squash the rumor. We have seen Floyd win plenty of money and lose plenty of money on games in the past, but there have also been several phony rumors about bets he never made. He usually bets a few hundred thousand at a time, not several million.

As a side note, I find it difficult to believe that Mayweather didn’t bet on the game at all. That doesn’t sound like him. What bet did you really lose, Floyd? Over? Under? First half line? Let’s see the real ticket.

Adrien Broner: I’m the closest thing to Floyd Mayweather

Adrien Broner Floyd Mayweather mini me

Is there anyone who thinks more highly of Adrien Broner than Adrien Broner? Probably not.

Broner is close friends with Floyd Mayweather and considers the undefeated boxer his mentor and brother. The feelings seem to be mutual based on what Floyd has said in the past, but Broner took things a little too far in some comments he made over the weekend.

Appearing on Showtime’s set for the Lamont Peterson-Dierry Jean fight last Saturday, Broner proudly exclaimed that he is the closest thing to Floyd Mayweather. His comments rubbed boxing fans in completely the wrong way, mostly because Floyd is undefeated while Broner already has one loss, which puts them worlds apart in terms of achievement.

But what exactly did Broner mean by “closest thing to Mayweather”?

If by his comments Broner meant close in terms of friendship, he might be right. Or if he meant that he’s the closest thing to Mayweather in terms of the way he’s made himself a controversial figure in the sport, I could buy that. But the way Broner said it, it seemed like he was talking about the total package, which would include skill, ability, marketing, fame, etc. And after losing to Marcos Maidana, Broner does not belong in the same boxing conversation as Floyd.

Mayweather has never been owned in a fight the way Broner was. Never.
