Mommy Mash-Up: Floyd Mayweather Outs Ex-Fiancée
Sure, we’ve all heard about the fury of a woman scorned, but days before his highly-anticipated boxing match-up with Marcos Maidana, Floyd Mayweather proved that a man scorned isn’t to be crossed either.
During a V103 interview with Big Tigger, Mayweather dished on his former fiancée, Shantel Jackson, claiming she told him she suffered from a stress-induced miscarriage, when in fact, she terminated her pregnancy. The boxing champ then went on to depict Jackson as a hypocrite, saying she talked negatively about women with fake breasts and behinds, when she has the same. And how does he know? He allegedly paid for it all. For those who might believe the boxer is all talk, he posted an image of what is alleged to be Jackson’s sonogram and abortion documents (which have since been deleted) to his Facebook page as proof.
But this isn’t the beginning of the boxer’s post-breakup mud slinging. He’s become notorious for telling all on Jackson, including saying she pawned a high-end bag in order to pay her Los Angeles rent and revealing he financially supports her mother.
One might wonder why the head honcho of “The Money Team” is taking time to spew allegations to various news outlets concerning someone he’s no longer with. Some say it’s because of Jackson’s ties with her rumored new beau, rapper Nelly, a claim Maywether denies. Others believe the high-profile celebrity is simply trying to garner more attention on the dawn of his big match-up, another claim he denies.
Through it all Jackson has remained relatively mum, only occasionally posting to her social media sites pictures that depict her as happy and having moved on from her up-and-down relationship with Mayweather. She’s clearly chosen to take the “ignore at all costs” approach to her current, messy situation—one that’s probably helped keep chatter surrounding her at a minimum.
We all know how tough breakups can be, especially those which unfold in front of the public eye. Unfortunately for this duo, love wasn’t able to trump all. In fact, it’s been the topic of least discussion when it comes to this former flame. Instead, rumors, possessions and questions of character seem to swirl around them, diminishing whatever love might have once lived there.
