T.I. and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. had an altercation early Sunday morning, May 25 in the Sin City. The boxer champion was reportedly eating at Fatburger on the Las Vegas Strip when the rapper approached him and confronted him. Fists and chairs were flying.
T.I. allegedly took a swing at Mayweather first. The reason behind the fight is still unclear, but it reportedly had something to do with Tip's wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle. In a video posted online, the boxer was heard saying, "You control your b**** mother***er."
Police arrived at the scene just as Mayweather was leaving while T.I. was already gone. TMZ reports a Fatburger employee was slashed and suffered a minor injury during the fight, but he refused treatment and did not want to cooperate with investigating officers.
One day before the brawl, Tiny joined a birthday celebration for Mayweather's daughter. Her rapper husband, meanwhile, hosted an event at the nightclub Prive.
