While she seems happily and pleasantly booed up with Nelly, there was a time when Shantel Jackson was dating and engaged to Floyd Mayweather. And from Jackson’s recounting of their time together, the eight-year relationship was violent.
Three years ago, Jackson sued Mayweather accusing him of choking her, pointing a gun to her head and posting a sonogram photo on Facebook, accusing her aborting their twins.
Now, as their date in court is approaching, Mayweather is filed a countersuit accusing Jackson of stealing large sums of cash during their relationship.
According to the Daily News, Mayweather claims Jackson gained his confidence and learned of Mayweather’s spending habits. He says she used his credit cards and learned where he kept his “loosely organized cash.”
The lawsuit states, “As a result of that confidence Mayweather, whose education ended at eighth grade, did not audit or otherwise inspect his cash or his card statements for theft by Jackson.”
Mayweather claims Jackson would often have purchases shipped to another location so he wouldn’t know about the purchases.
As for her part, in a 2014 press conference with her attorney Gloria Allred, Jackson said, “I have been embarrassed and humiliated more than I can ever imagine by Floyd.” She noted that Mayweather’s decision to post her sonogram picture was particularly devastating.
Allred said, “Every woman has a right to privacy and there is no excuse for invading anyone’s privacy, especially about what is happening in one’s own body and one’s own medical records.”
In his response to the lawsuit, Mayweather argued that Jackson’s “own conduct, acts and omissions caused the injuries and damages alleged in the complaint.”
