The confrontation went from a calmed chat to chairs flying across the room — but it should be mentioned that both teams claim that neither of the two actually ever put hands on each other, it was their entourage who were doing the damage.
Either way, clearly T.I and Floyd aren’t on good terms anymore. Tip felt offended by the fact that Floyd and Tiny had been spending time together, leaving T.I with the impression that they were sleeping around.
Now, the boxing champion has responded to the claims and what actually happened over the weekend when the confrontation went down and how the brawl really started.
According to Floyd, the incident took place after T.I approached him about an Instagram photo that saw the boxer and Tiny together in a photo: “[T.I] came to me when I was in New York,” he tells NecoleBitchie.
“He stepped to me when I was at the jewelery store like, “Yo, let’s go outside and talk.” We went outside to talk, but he talked about, basically, “These girls tryna play us against each other.” I said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“You’re talking about your wife?” I never put up a picture of her on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I was basically like, “Listen. I’m letting you know I ain’t got…me and your wife don’t have nothing…if you think so.”
He continued: I been knowing Tiny before T.I. I’ve never slept with her, I never kissed her, never touched her in no inappropriate way. Her friend Shekinah wanted to come to the [May 4th] fight, she brought Tiny with her. They came to the fight.”
“After the fight was over Saturday night, Sunday they came over my mother’s house. My mother had a big, big party for me. They came over and showed love. They came over to my house all cool, all respect.”
“Hang out with The Money Team, my crew. Everybody was cordial. No disrespecting type. After that, I guess she put a picture up on Instagram of her at the fight so I guess he [T.I.] was feeling some type of way.”
Floyd Mayweather goes on to publicly apologize to Tiny after a video clip surfaced of him shouting at T.I to learn how to “control his b-tch”.
I respect a guy who knows when he’s in the wrong and publicly apologised for the incident. Do I think Floyd has slept with Tiny? No. What do you think?
But if this doesn’t prove that T.I and Tiny are having trouble in their marriage, then we don’t know what does.
