Boxer Floyd Mayweather accused of battering and threatening to shoot ex-girlfriend in shocking lawsuit
By RYAN GORMAN
World champion boxer Floyd Mayweather battered, blackmailed and held his girlfriend hostage by gunpoint, she claims in a shocking new lawsuit.
The shocking accusations came in a lawsuit filed by former flame Shantel Jackson, and have resulted in Mayweather facing the prospect of a jury trial, the Daily Mail reported, citing court documents.
'Money Mayweather" is set to step in the ring this weekend to face Marcos Maidana, however it is not known if the fight will go on after the details of this lawsuit were made public.
Jackson, 29, first announced the lawsuit last week, but the gritty details of her alleged torture at the hands of the 37-year-old Mayweather were not known until Monday.
The former model accuses the fighter of choking and threatening to shoot her, holding her prisoner in their Las Vegas home, blackmailing her with naked pictures taken while she slept and even stealing from her.
'I took you out of the hood. I should have left you're a** there.You're not s**t without me," he reportedly shouted at her, among other insults, according to court documents.
The eight tumultuous years Jackson was with Mayweather finally came to a head this year when she moved out, the former cocktail waitress claims in the suit.
Jackson had her possessions put into three storage lockers when she left their Vegas home to live in Los Angeles.
Mayweather found the lockers, paid someone to break into one of them and stole more than $1 million in possessions from her, Jackson claims.
The pair somehow ended up back together after Mayweather sent a private jet to take Jackson to a fight in April.
They battled back and forth, with more threats and abuse being thrown her way, Jackson said in the suit.
She left for good in May, but the attacks did not stop.
Mayweather took to social media to attack Jackson, saying she killed his babies.
The 29-year-old told Mayweather in January she had an abortion.
"I have been embarrassed and humiliated more than I can ever imagine by Floyd," she said last week at the press conference.
Jackson is seeking unspecified damages from Mayweather. He has 30 days to respond to the allegations.
