For anyone wondering why rapper T.I. attacked Floyd Mayweather earlier this year in Las Vegas, TMZ Sports is now reporting it could be because the famous boxer may have had a fling with T.I.’s wife, Tiny.
The entertainment and sports media juggernaut posted what it said was video of Floyd Mayweather’s affair admission recently.
“Mayweather was promoting his upcoming fight Friday against Marcos Maidana, when someone yelled, ‘What about T.I.?’ — referring to the now famous Fat Burger fight.
“Listen closely, as Floyd says, ‘What about the bitch? I was f***ing his b*tch.’”
The report on the alleged Floyd Mayweather affair hit the web just after 11 a.m. Eastern Time and by 4 pm, Mayweather himself was denying that the fuzzy audio TMZ had claimed was his affair admission was not anything of the like.
Per TMZ Sports‘ later post:
“Mayweather tells TMZ Sports…he ACTUALLY said, ‘he thinks I was f***ing his b*tch.’
“In the video, Floyd does try to mutter something before the sex line — but it’s hard to make out.
“Mayweather adds, ‘I’ve never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I think she’s a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage.’”
The website also apparently spoke to Tiny herself, and she confirmed that the alleged Floyd Mayweather affair never happened.
This is now the first time that T.I.’s wife, Tiny Harris, has found herself at the center of discussions about the now infamous fight at a Las Vegas Fatburger. The Inquisitr reported May 26 that Mayweather actually apologized to Tiny for how he told T.I. to “control his b*tch,” referring to Tiny.
At the time, Mayweather denied any affair took place, though the rumors continue to this day. Here is what he said at the time, again per The Inquisitr.
“Mayweather told the blog that T.I. has been jealous of his wife’s friendship with Mayweather for some time, first approaching the boxer about it at a jewelry store in New York.
“‘We went outside to talk,’ said Floyd Mayweather. ‘But he talked about, basically, “these girls tryna play us against each other.” I said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”‘”
“Mayweather flatly denied any ‘inappropriate’ relationship between himself and Tiny Harris, saying that he would never have sexual relations with a marred woman because, ‘I’m becoming a better person.’”
With rumors having been bubbling since May that an affair may have taken place between Tiny and Mayweather, it is doubtful his denial Saturday (July 19) will do anything to squelch the talk, especially in light of the video from TMZ.
