Floyd Mayweather may find himself in hot water soon if reports are true. According to TMZ, Floyd and friends went after two former employees suspected of stealing from the boxer and things got extremely physical.
“Floyd Mayweather allegedly orchestrated a savage attack on two of his employees he suspected of stealing his jewelry … TMZ has learned.
“Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports … the two men had been hired to work on Floyd’s Vegas homes but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger at them.
“We’re told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location.
When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them — along with a number of his “people” — who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs.
Our sources say the attack was so brutal the men could have easily died. Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days.
One source put it this way, ‘It was some ‘Breaking Bad’ s**t.’”
Yeah. Throw in a Breaking Bad reference to drive the visual home.
While nothing’s been substantiated yet, all I can hear is Bill Duke’s “you done f*cked up” in my head. Money May usually plays it cool but can be a hothead if he believes he’s been wrong. See: His 2010 domestic violence incident involving the mother of three of his kids that landed him in jail for 90 days.
As TMZ tells it, the two guys deny taking the jewelry from the champ and apparently the champ figured that out, too, but just a little too late. The two men reportedly have contacted a lawyer because “the attack amounts to attempted murder, mayhem and kidnapping.” And a fat check.
And another headache for Floyd.
