Floyd Mayweather Explains Root Of T.I. Altercation

Floyd Mayweather says the root of the fight was over an Instagram pic of him and Tiny taken at a party.

Early this morning, Floyd Mayweather got into an altercation with T.I. over alleged jealousy of Floyd's relationship with Tip's wife, Tiny.

Within the same day, Floyd is now explaining the root of the fight via Necole Bitchie and, as expected, it was over Tiny.

"After the fight was over Saturday night, Sunday they came over my mother’s house," Mayweather said regarding a party Tiny and her friend Shekinah attended after the fight. "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 also explained that he and Tiny are nothing more than friends. 

"I been knowing Tiny before T.I.," he explained. "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."

In regards to the Instagram picture that made T.I. upset, Floyd said T.I. believed that Tiny was trying to pin the two against each other.

"[T.I.] came to me when I was in New York," he said. "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."

Later in the interview, Floyd Mayweather expressed the desire to apologize to Tiny, but not T.I. 

"I’m going to continue to support Tiny and Shekinah cause they’re cool people and I don’t got nothing against them," he said. "So I apologize for that."

Floyd's former business partner 50 Cent made light of the situation after finding out about it this morning. In Instagram videos, 50 made a faux phone call to Floyd and questioned Mayweather's involvement in the altercation, telling him to lay off of T.I.'s wife.

    The snitch better watch out cause Floyd is the real deal and will kick the shit out of Tip's hip hop ass.

  • Andre' Muhammad

    Both of these brothers should be very careful. I met T.I. in FCI Forrest City, AR. They have far bigger enemies than one another. The hostile, violent, atmosphere in the Hip Hop community that was created via the East Coast West Coast Beef is what facilitated the death of Tupac and Biggie. Both were under FBI surveillance long before they were killed. The love that each group had for both men was manipulated to make it appear that one side or the other was at fault. Tupac was killed, Biggie's camp was blamed. Biggie was killed Tupac's camp was blamed. Meanwhile the real culprits got away. (So, they think.) The atmosphere is set now where an outside enemy of T.I. or Floyd could hurt or kill one of our brothers and blame the other side. It was a good step for Floyd to apologize for the language he used in reference to Tiny. Both of these men have children, and it would be foolish for us (black community) to fan the flames that could result in the loss of either man. Wisdom teaches that the two should sit down and dialogue before this gets out of hand. I pray that ego, pride and public hype doesn't goad our brothers into a conflict that ends in tragedy.

  • White_Boy

    T.I. is a dumb motherfucker. Mayweather would have put this insecure, jealous motherfucker on his ass, and then the idiot that is T.I. would try to look hard and pull a weapon out, you all know he would. That motherfucker needs educating, I bet he's back behind bars within 12 months!

  • Yeezy

    College Dropout - A youthful album, Kanye on the come-up and grinding. Late Registration - A learning album, realizing it's not too late learn something, and still make it big. Graduation - A creative album, letting his creativity & feelings go wild. 808's & Heartbreak - A personal album, constructed around the time his mom died. MBDTF - A career defining album - Letting everyone know what the fuck Kanye is capable of, and that he's here to stay. Watch the Throne - A collaborative album - Having a place in the game set in stone, working with one of the best rappers to ever live, feeling confident as fuck in his music. Yeezus - An experimental album, sound based off how he felt & what was running through his mind at the exact moment it was made. IT WAS SOMETHING NEW WITH KANYE EVERY SINGLE ALBUM. FUCK Y'ALL IF YOU DON'T THINK HE PUTS HIS ALL INTO EVERY ALBUM. Kanye is the most passionate rapper since Pac. Not to compare the two, but from his music, to his interviews, you know this dude believes everything he says in the most serious way possible, and doesn't plan to stop changing the world till he is dead and even then his music will live forever.

      You're on the wrong article, nikka. Matter of fact, you're on the wrong website period.

      I agree he has an underlying message in all his albums but dude has no rapping skills!! E.g good word play ill rhyme schemes dope metaphors.. His lyrics are very simple and basic, what does it matter if the beats are good homie? He always raps slow with that monotonous voice

  • Ghostly

    T.I is a chump. He should of addressed his woman, not Floyd. I fuck with T.I but Floyd would of knocked the fuck out of him. People forget boxers can street fight too.

  • gr

    Tip is cool usually... but not for this. People in his position should think before they act, not jeopardize your freedom in such a juvenile way, and check your woman instead of the dude you think is hitting it. I never get why men and women try to check the side piece instead of the person who is supposed to be "committed" to them.

      True dat! Must be an ego thing. There must be more to the story. It seems as though it's missing something. Was she sitting on his lap in the pic? Who knows

  • rideonemjixxer

    Even if T.I. is acting crazy jealous or unreasonable, I have to give him credit for having the balls to swing on a boxing champ. That has to count for something...

    • Anonymous

      no respect. not with a gang of niggas with you. catch floyd by himself or tell him you want to shoot a fair one just you and him. tiny probably caused this shit on purpose because t.i. was fuckin with iggy and the low and now that that bitch used his ass and moved on he back in tiny face and she been having fun makin his dumb ass jealous.

    • ME

      Nah not really because a jealous dude is just that, that was wack and T.I is now on my wack list.. He the type of dude that do his thing and his girl knows it, but if she take a pic with a dude he ready to attack, that ain't PLAYER..

  • chris

    Yall niggas be on here killing me..go have 3,4 kids with a bitch be taking care of her for 10,15 years and tell me you not gon have some type of feelings if u see some slick shit..yall must be young and dumb because trsut you gon feel some type of way if u in that situation

  • Not Impressed

    She is a beautiful lighter toned black queen you guys are fags for calling her a bitch. and T.I. should stop acting like he owns her since she's paying all his bills. Im NOT IMPRESSED.

  • L.J.

    Honestly...there is no hope for TI...I respect Floyd for apologizing and letting people know what really happened. TI for some reason did not run up on 50 Cent like that. He supposed to be so tough. TI mad because he has been exposed and the world knows so he trying to do ignorant things to make himself look like this bad guy. Everyone knows TIP history stop trying to cause more problems.

    Always knew Clifford was a fake gangster, who wasn't about that life. He was doja in the A, real OG's from Bankhead will tell you that. When Lil'Flip put out that freestyle and exposed Tip A Cop as snitch, everyone cruxified Flip. Now after Clifford's current antics, that freestyle has proven correct

    T.i down bad for thinking this man fucking his wife

    He needs to step to his wife, a man can't stick his pole in a hole if it is moving... So in other words T.I. needs to sit his hot ass down some where...

    He should have checked his bitch in the privacy of their home and avoided all this terrible publicity. I'm sure he's going to be getting a call from his probation officer about this.

    This nigga Ti don lost all credibility.

  • Anonymous

    That sounded pretty genuine (and humble) to me. Tip is really delusional if he tought he could scrap with this nigga lol. That public confrontation thing might have worked with Apollo but Floyd is a totally different beast. After the first conversation that should have been over and he should have addressed his concerns with Tiny like Floyd said. Continually confronting niggas that take a pic with your bitch is pointless and desperate. You can't go around attempting to chase every man away from your wife because in the end, she's going give it to whoever she wants, and not every man is going to be as courteous as Floyd

  • Anonymous

    Nice of him to apologize for calling Tiny a bitch. It wasn't her fault Clifford isn't confident or comfortable enough to let his girl take a pic with the champ.

    Basically, Clifford caught feelings and exposed himself as a bitch nigga.

    Shekinah is your classic hoodrat black girl name.

      NO, Shekinah means in Jewish and Christian theology the glory of the divine presence, conventionally represented as light or interpreted symbolically. Google it. She should rather change her name to something that suits her better.
