Floyd Mayweather Explains Root Of T.I. Altercation
Floyd Mayweather says the root of the fight was over an Instagram pic of him and Tiny taken at a party.
Within the same day, Floyd is now explaining the root of the fight via Necole Bitchie and, as expected, it was over Tiny.
"After the fight was over Saturday night, Sunday they came over my mother’s house," Mayweather said regarding a party Tiny and her friend Shekinah attended after the fight. "My mother had a big, big party for me. They came over and showed love. They came over to my house all cool, all respect. Hang out with The Money Team, my crew. Everybody was cordial. No disrespecting type. After that, I guess she put a picture up on Instagram of her at the fight so I guess he [T.I.] was feeling some type of way."
Floyd also explained that he and Tiny are nothing more than friends.
"I been knowing Tiny before T.I.," he explained. "I’ve never slept with her. I never kissed her, never touched her in no inappropriate way. Her friend Shekinah wanted to come to the [May 4th] fight. She brought Tiny with her. They came to the fight."
In regards to the Instagram picture that made T.I. upset, Floyd said T.I. believed that Tiny was trying to pin the two against each other.
"[T.I.] came to me when I was in New York," he said. "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."
Later in the interview, Floyd Mayweather expressed the desire to apologize to Tiny, but not T.I.
"I’m going to continue to support Tiny and Shekinah cause they’re cool people and I don’t got nothing against them," he said. "So I apologize for that."
Floyd's former business partner 50 Cent made light of the situation after finding out about it this morning. In Instagram videos, 50 made a faux phone call to Floyd and questioned Mayweather's involvement in the altercation, telling him to lay off of T.I.'s wife.
