Undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. may have found a new friend in R&B singer Ray J as they both piled up $50,000 on Atlanta strippers this week.
The fun and games reportedly went down Wednesday (September 26) night.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Ray J. sent a club full of strippers home VERY happy this week — because they dropped $50,000 on the ladies … and you might say the fellas overspent. Floyd, Ray J. and their money team posse strolled into Diamonds of Atlanta with serious stacks Wednesday night — Floyd carried his in a Louis Vuitton bag — and we’re told they made it rain all night. Now, based on the pics … everyone had a great time — including Joseline from VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop.” But here’s the thing, if you’re spending $50k … don’t you expect top of the line talent? Just sayin’. (TMZ)
Last June, rap star Ludacris reportedly shelled out $10,000 on adult entertainment at the same strip club.
Rapper LUDACRIS flashed his cash at a strip club by spending $10,000 on exotic dancers – as his girlfriend watched. The Area Codes hitmaker took a backpack full of dollars to a party for producer DJ Infamous at Diamonds of Atlanta on Wednesday night (13Jun12). Ludacris was photographed happily showering $1 bills on the dancers performing onstage, spending a reported $10,000 at the club. But it wasn’t a typical boys’ night out – R&B singer Monica and Ludacris’ girlfriend Eudoxie Agnan also came along for the fun. (ABC Action News)
In May, Atlanta’s Killer Mike dished on his appreciation for the local strip club scene.
“If I go all the way politicized, I become a zealot who’s not allowed to have fun with the people and the community that raised me. But if I go the other way, I become an ignoramus who isn’t properly qualified to speak on my community’s behalf. Me and my girl go to the kids’ school on Friday, then we go to the strip club Saturday night, and then we wake up and go to church Sunday morning, and we’re back to business on Monday. That’s my real life. At the end of the day, I’m a big black country motherf*cker! All of that’s gonna come with me. [laughs] I can’t be all Public Enemy and not embrace my 2 Live Crew. You’ll always see me at a political rally and the black strip club; I’m gonna represent smoking weed and I’m gonna represent supporting Trayvon Martin on my record, because I’m a whole man.” (Pitchfork)
Earlier in the week, Mayweather and boxing rival Manny Pacquiao settled a potentially expensive legal case.
Mayweather and Pacquiao agreed to settle a federal defamation casein Las Vegas, according to a lawyer involved in the matter, a move that avoids trial and clears a key hurdle to a long-awaited bout between two top fighters who’ve traded verbal jabs for years but have never met in the ring.Terms of the deal are confidential, Malcolm LaVergne, a lawyer representing Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s father in the case, told The Associated Press.Pacquiao, 33, a member of Congress in the Philippines, filed the lawsuit in December 2009 in Las Vegas. He sought unspecified damages based on allegations that Mayweather defamed him by suggesting he used performance-enhancing substances. Pacquiao denied Mayweather’s claim. (Atlanta Black Star)
