Mayweather sued: Ex-partner holds press conference outlining abuse (video)
Floyd Mayweather’s ex-fiance Shantell ‘Miss’ Jackson has held a press conference announcing plans to sue the fighter following their recent acrimonious split.
Jackson, who met Mayweather in 2006 before moving into his Las Vegas home, alleges that the pound for pound king ‘pulled a gun on her’ and held her against her will in just two of many instances of abuse. The model also states that Mayweather used physical violence against her and called her names like ‘bitch’ and ‘bum’ as the ‘Money’ man attempted to break her down verbally.
Pictures of her naked were also used against her, according the now successful businesswoman, who is currently said to be dating Mayweather’s media rival, rapper Nelly.
A lawsuit was filed against Mayweather just nine days before his fight with Marcos Maidana and WBN has obtained a copy below which further outlines the extent of the allegations made against him.
If successful, Miss Jackson could be set for a massive payout from Mayweather, who has attempted to repair his reputation following a stint in jail two years ago for assault offences against another former partner.
Mayweather, 37, is looking to push his boxing record to 47-0 with a weekend victory over Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas, but could then be embroiled in a high profile court battle with the woman he once loved.
