The “King of the South” T.I. has come forward to address nasty rumors and gossip which claim he suffered some physical injuries after an altercation with boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. this past weekend.
Tip relied on his Instagram page to dismiss reports of enduring physical harm to his face.
“They said I’ve got two black eyes. Where they at, though? These ones I’m looking at? Is they black for real? D*mn, been like that all my life. F*cked my hand up. That’s about it. [laughs],” Tip said in a video followed by the caption “Two black what?????? C’mon now. Never in da history of Nigga-dom. But nice try tho. Lol” (T.I.’s Instagram)
Following the controversy, Mayweather admitted a recent photo of himself alongside T.I.’s wife Tiny most likely sparked the early Sunday (May 25) confrontation.
“I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he walk in talking about we need to talk again. And then I told him, “You need to get the f-ck outta my face. That’s what you better do.” And then he said, “I ain’t talking to all these people so you ain’t gotta talk loud.” I said, “Listen, don’t come to my face with no disrespectful sh-t. Like I told you before, you must’ve forgot what I did for a living.” He said, “You do in the ring, I do it in the streets.” I said, “My man, I do it everywhere. You can find out if you want to.” Just like that. … Then a couple of words exchange and people got to pushing and a riot kinda broke out. And then a bunch of chaos and that was basically it. Because, like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain’t no damn fool to swing on me.” (Necole Bitchie)
Money Mayweather also apologized for taking an indirect shot at Tiny.
“Only person I wanna apologize towards is Tiny. I said something like “control your b-tch” and I don’t want to say that about Tiny. So I do apologize to Tiny because she cool people, man. She cool. She never been disrespectful to me. Shekinah never been disrespectful to me. I’m going to continue to support Tiny and Shekinah cause they’re cool people and I don’t got nothing against them. So I apologize for that.” (Necole Bitchie)
Details of what allegedly went down at a Fatburger restaurant in Las Vegas surfaced online early Sunday.
According to several witnesses … Floyd was eating inside the restaurant when T.I. walked up and started jawing at Floyd. It’s unclear what caused the beef, but we’re told T.I. swung at Floyd … their giant bodyguards jumped in to separate them … and then the all out melee began. Las Vegas PD arrived just as Floyd was leaving and we’re told T.I. was already gone. (TMZ)
