Floyd Mayweather Explains Vegas Brawl, Says T.I. & Tiny Are “Separated” [PHOTOS]


Update: T.I. took to Instagram  to give his side of the story. He didn’t get two black eyes, as was reported, but he did injure his hand.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has more than a few words about that Fatburger fight with T.I. in Las Vegas over the weekend. While The Kang is keeping quiet, and his wife Tiny (whose honor he was defending) is Instagram flexin‘, Money Mayweather wants to clear up what went on inside the fast food joint.

Mayweather said Tip blew the whole thing out of proportion and that his relationship with Tiny is strictly platonic. “I been knowing Tiny before T.I. I’ve never slept with her, I never kissed her, never touched her in no inappropriate way,” he told

Tip approached Mayweather before Vegas in New York, also about Tiny posting a photo with with him on Instagram. They settled the issue, then she did it again — while partying with the boxer in Sin City this weekend. That seems to have been the breaking point for T.I.

Nonetheless, he was overreacting, Floyd said. “So Memorial Day weekend a lot of people come out to Las Vegas. Tiny and [her friend] Shekinah was out here. They come to my party last night,” explained the 37-year-old. “They cool. Everything is cool. We was at the strip club. Everything was cordial. We having fun. I throw my daughter [Iyanna] a big [14th] birthday bash today. I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he walk in talking about we need to talk again. And then I told him, ‘You need to get the f*ck outta’ my face. That’s what you better do.'”

Those words didn’t go over well. T.I. told Mayweather to keep his voice down, and he retorted by trying to test the leader of the Hustle Gange. “I said, ‘Listen, don’t come to my face with no disrespectful sh-t,” he continued. “Like I told you before, you must’ve forgot what I did for a living.’ He said ‘You do in the ring, I do it in the streets.’ I said, ‘My man, I do it everywhere. You can find out if you want to.’ Just like that.”

Other than the verbiage, pushing people, and throwing chairs, nothing else really happened. Mayweather said Tip never threw a punch. “Like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain’t no damn fool to swing on me. Like, you must’ve forgot what I do for a living.”

The rest of his statement including an apology to Tiny for yelling “control yo b****!” when T.I. got in his face. And he made it clear –again– that he and he and the singer never did anything physical. “I’m not sleeping with that girl [Tiny] and I told that man before. But if I was talk to her about that, don’t talk to me about that. But I’m not going to be disrespectful because I’m not going to sleep with a married woman. Now if she was divorced…I still wouldn’t do that because I’m cool with her and we have a real cool and cordial relationship and sometimes sex can mess a good friendship up.”

There was also a nod to Tip and Tiny’s alleged marital strife. He’s probably not the authority on their personal life, but Mayweather made mention that the two aren’t together. “Tiny is married. I respect that. I don’t care if y’all separated, she’s still married under God’s eyes and the law. I’m not going to sleep with a married woman. I’m not going to do that. Like I said on All Access, I’m becoming a better person.”

That “better person” line might be up for debate, especially from Tip’s viewpoint.

    I could easily beat both of these guys

  • currvalicious

    Tiny need to stop w/her foolishness,. I believe she’s running around trying to make TI jealous on purpose. She’s a mother of 3 (not including stop mom to about 4) of TI’s kids, shouldn’t she be at home. When Mayweather definitely spilled the tea on their marital situation. tiny go make TI jealous w/someone else, Money isn’t having any of it.

    • StoopidHeux

      I agree. He totally dished what is really going on, I guess where they new house for TIP comes in and spending Mother’s Day at some jump off’s house. Tiny needs to grow up. And yes, although I think you should have fun and enjoy yourself in life I don’t think you should be running around following a boxer to make your ex-man jealous. G tf up. This could have gone south really quick and all for what? Their egos. Money showed such class by apologizing but Tiny needs to get slapped for that move. Leave Money alone and take your issues with your husband elsewhere. The ratchetness is real!

      • currvalicious

        Agreed! TI definitely don’t want it w/Money, his Issues are between he & Tiny. She’s running around w/Shekinah, (totally ratchet) she needs to have a seat & TI needs to pull it together, no one’s checking for Tiny except you & her plastic surgeon.

      • Tony Smith

        Ti showed his mental weakness. First you can’t control no women. Second mayweatherbis originally from detroit home of the players club. You don’t wont a detroit beat down keep it moving king of the south

    • truth

      TI is also a father shouldn’t he also be at home?? I bet you call yourself an Independent woman…… lol…..

      • currvalicious

        Absolutely I do. However this isn’t about me (I post whatever I want) it’s my opinion regarding the article. Which we all are entitled to, including you. Yes he is a father (of many children) w/several different women. He didn’t stick around w/any of the other Mothers (of his children). Tiny as a woman purposefully creating fricton between her husband & Mayweather ain’t cute! she knows how TI is over her, yes I feel it was done intentionally. Get your business right w/your husband, privately, w/counseling if need be. Real women So you can take your sarcastic response & have a seat. along w Tiny.

  • 123kwade

    Ok lets say she did say whatever that is her business if they are separated she can date who she wants Tip took it upon himself to follow her to Vegas acting a fool..I must say though she is looking the best I have seen her looking in years and seem to be having fun chillin she has done nothing wrong maybe Tip should worry about the chicks at his house before coming for her for anything she may do and this is just the start wait until she really starts feeling herself…Tip is mad cause she isn’t trippin off of him and is looking good while she doing it I guess thought she was gonna be crying over spilled milk…GOOD FOR HER AND SHAME ON HIM FOR OVER REACTING TO A TWEET AT THAT lmao..HE PLAYED HIMSELF NOW WE KNOW HE LOVES HIS WIFE HE SHOULD HAVE TOLD HER THAT BEFORE THIS.

  • IReadPapers4aLiving

    TI acting like Solange, trying to instigate a fight with 10 bodyguards around. Plus, he’s acting way too moist. If i’m celebrating with my family, and a next man is having problems with his wife, he better not come to me talking about, “we gotta talk.” Especially, if I told him already, ” I’m not messing with your wife.” Tiny got him, but TI steady acting like he is the one in control.
