Floyd Mayweather and his ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson have been at odds legally for some time with Jackson accusing Mayweather domestic abuse and other claims. The legendary boxer came back with his own legal counterpunch and filed a lawsuit against Jackson alleging she stole cash and credit cards to buy lavish gifts for herself.
TMZ Sports reports:
According to docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Shantel got access to Floyd’s credit card accounts, and scooped cash around his house, to go on personal shopping sprees. He claims she shipped all her illicit booty to a secret location to keep him in the dark.
Floyd claims Shantel would praise him in public when he got bad press purely to gain his confidence. In the docs, his lawyer writes … “As a result of that confidence, Mayweather, who’s education ended at eighth grade, did not audit or otherwise inspect either his cash or his credit card statements for theft by Jackson.”
(NOTE: Floyd’s reps tell us his lawyer has it wrong … he left school in the 12th grade, not 8th.)
Translation: She pulled a rope-a-dope, and yeah … Floyd was the dope.
The outlet adds that Mayweather only found out about Jackson’s alleged thievery by way of a mutual friend.
