Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has stepped forward to clear the air on his publicized incident with Atlanta rapper T.I. and apologized for dragging his reality television wife Tiny into the mess.
Mayweather admitted a recent photo of himself alongside 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 Tip’s wife.
“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)
Reports also claimed footage of the incident would be released.
Police confirm one guy suffered a minor injury during the fight, but he refused treatment and did not want to cooperate with investigating officers. In other words … no snitching. A rep for T.I. had no comment about the fight. We’ve obtained video of the brawl which we’ll be posting shortly. (TMZ)
