G-Unit leader 50 Cent appears unfazed by the hype his publicized falling out with boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has caused, now locking in quality time with his estranged ex-business partner’s father.
A new photo of Fif and Floyd Mayweather, Sr. hanging out in Las Vegas has started to circulate online this week.
So, maybe 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. don’t really hate each other after all. Earlier this week, Fif was spotted at CES 2013 in Las Vegas promoting his SMS Audio products. And, it was pretty interesting because the G-Unit general also had Money May’s dad Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Mike Tyson there with him, too. They even posed for the picture that you see here. So, does this mean 50 is back on speaking terms with Mayweather Sr.’s son? Eh, we doubt it. As you probably know, Mayweather Sr. and Mayweather Jr. don’t always get along all that well, either. But, still: It’s gotta sting Mayweather Jr. just a little to see his dad siding with 50 right now, no? (Complex)
Just last month, Floyd Mayweather spoke on possibly hooking back up with his father for future fights starting this year.
Although thye’ve had their ups and downs in the past, Mayweather doesn’t believe there will be any problems working with his father so long at they can both agree on one thing. “My dad has to realize I’m an adult, you know. I just want my dad to accept and respect me as an adult. I think my dad, the thing is, he still looks at me as his 10-year-old son. I’m a lot closer to 40 than I am to 21, but I have a lot left in the tank and I want to go out there and give the fans nothing but excitement,” he added. (Fight Hype)
A few weeks ago, Curtis Jackson hit up SOHH and updated fans on his relationship with Mayweather, Jr.
“To be honest with you, you wouldn’t really learn very much about business from Floyd,” Fif told SOHH when asked what lessons has he taken from previously partnering up with Money Team Promotions. “I think you would have an opportunity to see somebody live a music video. Like non-stop. [He’s] living the stuff that you would see, when rappers talk about stuff, Floyd’s living it to the fullest. And I’ve said it before, he’s like my brother, like my younger brother. But there’s [things he does] and he gets confused. I get mad at him but it passes, that’s all.” (SOHH)
Rumors of their split heated up the Internet around mid-September.
Rumors are flying hot and heavy that the joint venture into boxing promotion called TMT (The Money Team), headed up by pound-for-pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr. and rapper 50 Cent, is already kaput. The Ring magazine reports that Australian featherweight fighter Billy Dib, recently signed by TMT, has had his contract folded into the operations of the still operating Mayweather Promotions. The Ring also says that a source close to the rap superstar indicates that 50 Cent is “no longer involved in boxing.” (Boxing Insider)
