Instead of resorting to social media, Floyd Wayweather Jr. has decided to clear the record on what transpired between him and T.I. last night (May 24th) in Las Vegas in a recent interview.
Mayweather Jr explained in an interview with Nicole Bitchiethat he never had sexual or intimate relations with T.I.’s wife, Tamkea “Tiny” Harris and has known her before she became involved with T.I. According to Mayweather claims that T.I. approached him at a jewelry store in New York City this month about a conspiratorial plot to “play us against each other””:
[T.I] came to me when I was in New York. He stepped to me when I was at the jewelery store like, “Yo, let’s go outside and talk.” We went outside to talk, but he talked about, basically, “These girls tryna play us against each other.” I said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re talking about your wife?” I never put up a picture of her on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I was basically like, “Listen. I’m letting you know I ain’t got…me and your wife don’t have nothing…if you think so.
This Memorial Day Weekend, Mayweather Jr held a birthday party for his 14 year old daughter Ilyanna at MGM Grand Ballrooms. Following the birthday bash, Mayweather claims T.I. approached him again and this time, Mayweather was not as cordial:
I throw my daughter [Iyanna] a big [14th] birthday bash today. 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.
Mayweather later claims that T.I. swung on him and the boxer is only interested in apologizing to Tiny.
