*And we thought the Mayweather-Pacquiano fight left us with a lot of angst.
We ain’t seen nothing yet!
Well, maybe we have. Because Floyd Mayweather‘s battle with his ex-fiance, Shantel Jackson, has been going on for awhile.
But now, thanks to the “eyes-everywhere” site, TMZ, some real communication has been exposed via texts uncovered by Harvey and ‘nem.
Jackson and Mayweather are in a court dispute, initiated by Shantel more than a year ago. She is suing her former flame over charges of domestic abuse, invasion of privacy, and defamation of character.
And we guess she’s asking for a lot of dough, because Mayweather, at least according to this first text, seems to be having a change of heart.
That is, before his texts got downright ugly.
“This is what I offer to you,” he begins. “Let’s get married move in together you can go back in forth to L.A and stay at the condo. I promise I will get you in 3 A list movies this year and I’m willing to go to counseling to make us work and you can get the stuff you want and I’m willing to change but I need you to have a better attitude.”
“I had your phone traced. I hired a detective. Your not slick.”
Then dissolves into…
“I took you from rags to riches now you back to rags bitch. that’s why your out selling shit going on petty ass auditions fronting to people like your doing big sh*t.”
Before the real kicker…
“I got nasty videos too that I can put on Instagram and twitter”
These texts are obviously not a good look for the fighter, who has a history of abuse towards women. Mayweather has not yet released the photos or video referenced in his above threats; although he did let a photo of Jackson’s sonogram out — claiming she had an abortion; which he claims was the real reason they broke up.
Meanwhile, Jackson has apparently moved on with rapper Nelly.
