Nelly on Floyd Mayweather: It’s hard talking to a guy who didn’t graduate high school (Video)

Nelly is still dating Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson, so it is hardly a surprise that the boxing champion and rapper do not get along. During an appearance on Dan Le Batard’s “Highly Questionable” on Monday, Nelly was asked about his beef with Floyd. He said there is no beef, but he was not very convincing.

“I don’t have a beef with Floyd Mayweather, for the most part,” Nelly said. “The whole thing is misunderstood. I try to understand where he’s coming from, which is a little hard to do. I guess it’s one of those things where he is who he is. He’s one of those people who doesn’t like the word ‘no’ said to him.”

Nothing too bad in there, right? Nelly and Mayweather clearly don’t get along, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there is “beef” between the two. Of course, that was until Nelly dropped this bomb.

“I don’t know — it’s kind of hard talking to a guy who hasn’t graduated from high school,” he added.

Never mind, there is beef. I’m sure it doesn’t help that people like 50 Cent — who used to be friends with Mayweather until they had a falling out — are playing the role of instigator. Over the weekend, 50 shared a photo of Nelly and Jackson (that Nelly had previously posted) on Instagram and ripped on Floyd. He later deleted it.


“Nelly put this up @floydmayweather DAMN da ni**a really took your lady Champ,” 50 wrote. “It’s @missjackson birthday. Smh.”

Why do I feel a tiny bit badly for a guy who makes $100 million per year and has an enormous mouth? Actually, scratch that — I just talked myself out of it.

Greg Hardy fight with girlfriend Nicole Holder was over Nelly?

Greg HardyGreg Hardy’s girlfriend Nicole Holder filed a request for a temporary restraining order against the Carolina Panthers defensive end on Wednesday. According to the Charlotte Observe, Holder alleges in the court documents from the civil case that her argument with Hardy had to do with one of her past boyfriends. Guess who the guy was? Nelly, of course.

Holder’s request was dismissed after she failed to appear in court on Thursday. She claimed that she was in bed with Hardy on Tuesday morning when he “just snapped.” She was seeking for a judge to ban Hardy from her home and surrender all of his firearms. While the suit was dismissed when Holder failed to appear, a judge still ordered Hardy to turn over all of his weapons.

Hardy placed a call to 911 early Tuesday morning claiming Holder was attacking him and refused to leave his apartment.

“I think she’s on coke or something,” Hardy can be heard telling a dispatcher in an audio clip obtained by TMZ. “She’s been drinking, I dunno what she’s on, man. She will not stop coming at me, bro.

“My manager’s trying to detain her, he’s trying to keep her away from me. He’s not hurting her or anything. … She’s trying to come at me, bro! Don’t let her do it, bro!”

When police arrived at the scene, they arrested Hardy for domestic violence. The 26-year-old is accused of threatening to kill Holder and throwing her onto a couch covered in weapons and firearms, bragging that they were loaded. Holder reportedly had scratches and bruises on her.

Why is it always Nelly? We recently learned that Floyd Mayweather Jr. may have broken up with Shantel Jackson in part because she starting seeing the famous rapper. That guy is everywhere.

Floyd Mayweather jealous Nelly took ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson

Nelly Miss Jackson

Floyd Mayweather has lashed out at ex-girlfriend/ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson over social media many times since the two broke up, but he never got quite as personal about it until last week.

Floyd posted on his Facebook page that the reason he and Miss Jackson broke up is because she got an abortion. It’s pretty obvious that Floyd crossed the line by sharing that information with the entire world, but that’s the the type of immature behavior we’re used to seeing from him. It was also easy to connect the dots and figure that Floyd was ticked off that Shantel’s moved on to another man — rapper Nelly.

TMZ reported that Floyd was bothered because Nelly used to be in his circle of friends and the boxer felt betrayed. They also say Floyd knew what he was doing was wrong when he posted about the abortion, but he just couldn’t control himself.

Nelly responded to the story on Friday, posting a pair of notes on Instagram. In one message, he denied ever being friends with Floyd, instead saying they just knew each other from clubs. He also says Floyd tried to get with his ex-girlfriend.

“Me and Floyd being such good friends is a total shock to me considering we have never exchanged numbers, never been invited to a fight, never been to his house, never ate lunch, we never have hung out anywhere other than seeing each other in a club! Floyd could be confusing his relationship with me with his relationship with my ex for whom he has exchanged numbers and has flown personally to attend His weekend in Michigan which I wasn’t invited (guess I wasn’t in the circle of friends then) lol.

“I have great respect for him as far as him being a true champion in his sport but homies ..?? Circle of friends ..? Nahh … Good luck to him tho keep making history champ.”

What goes around comes around, eh Floyd? He needs to get his head screwed on straight before his fight.

Nelly appears to take shot at Floyd Mayweather

Nelly Miss Jackson

Floyd Mayweather’s social media shots at ex-girlfriend/fiancee Shantel Jackson have not gone unnoticed.

Not long after Floyd said the reason why he and Miss Jackson broke up was because she got an abortion, rapper Nelly sent this tweet:

It’s hard not to view that as anything other than a shot at Mayweather. Keep in mind that Nelly and Miss Jackson attended a playoff game together this week and are supposedly dating.

Floyd may be rich, but he acts extremely cheap when it comes to Miss Jackson. The man is undefeated as a boxer and hates to lose. Of course he’s going to be hurt and lash out now that he’s lost something meaningful to him.

I’m ridin with Nelly on this one.

Shantel Jackson is reportedly dating Nelly


Shantel Jackson supposedly broke up with Floyd Mayweather Jr. several months ago because he had too many side girlfriends, and it appears she is looking to move on from the lengthy relationship. Miss Jackson was spotted sitting courtside with Nelly at the Miami Heat-Charlotte Bobcats game on Monday night.

Nelly posted Jackson as his #WCW, or “Woman Crush Wednesday,” on Instagram earlier this month. According to Bossip, the two have been dating for several months. The R&B singer is supposedly set to release a track called “Thanks to My Ex” that could result in Mayweather posting more cruel photos of Shantel on Instagram.

So hot in…so hot in hurr.
