Floyd Mayweather Jnr
World Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jnr, who mounts the ring to fight Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand tonight, is a man with a broken heart.
According to sources close to the boxer, he was devastated when he learned his ex-fiancee is rebounding with his old friend and rapper Nelly.
It was gathered that Floyd only recently learned Shantel Jackson had been getting close with the rapper, who used to kick it with Floyd back in the day.
A source said Floyd felt ?betrayed? that Shantel would date someone in his circle of friends ? and that?s what sparked him to go to social media and lash out at her earlier this week.
Floyd, who is an overwhelming 11-to-1 favorite to defeat WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana in their pay-per-view unification bout tonight, tweeted yesterday that he broke up with his long-time gal friend, Shantel after she allegedly aborted the couple?s unborn twins.
Sources close to Floyd said he realized he shouldn?t have posted Shantel?s ultrasound results along with a message announcing that she had an abortion ? but he just couldn?t control his emotions.
Floyd has since pulled the posts down.
Meanwhile, Shantel has returned the boxer?s fire, saying he just blew his chances to become an NBA owner by ripping her for allegedly aborting their twins.
Shantel Jackson posted this on Instagram: ?With that type of behavior I guess you just gave up on owning that NBA team huh? Lol?.
Floyd said he?d be interested in purchasing the Los Angeles Clippers when and if Donald Sterling sells.
Shantel still hasn?t addressed whether Floyd?s claim is true ? but she ended her response to him with ?#childish #growup.?
