Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Sued by Ex-Fiancee


Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
In the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Court, Mayweather's former fiancee Shantel Jackson alleges invasion of privacy, assault, battery and defamation.


Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has been sued by his ex-fiancee who alleged that the boxer beat and humiliated her when they were still together. Mayweather's former fiancee Shantel Jackson filed the suit on Thursday, September 4 in Los Angeles County Court.

Jackson said she was humiliated after Mayweather posted her sonogram in May and accused her of "killing babies." "Every woman has a right to privacy and there is no excuse for invading anyone's privacy, especially about what is happening in one's own body and one's own medical records," said Jackson's lawyer Gloria Allred in a press conference that day.

Allred also claimed that Mayweather was "infuriated" when her client posted a photo of her posing with rapper Nelly and threatened her to remove it or he would release her naked photos. The photo incident with Nelly eventually led to the share of the sonogram image.

Mayweather also allegedly twisted her arm during an argument in August 2012, while in April 2013 he allegedly "bent her arm, restrained her, and pointed a gun at her foot, asking 'Which toe do you want me to shoot?' " Jackson additionally alleged that the boxing champ kept her a "virtual prisoner" for some time during their relationship and that she was in constant surveillance.

Jackson said she suffered from invasion of privacy, battery, assault, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, civil harassment and false imprisonment. According to NY Daily News, she is seeking compensation for more than $2 million worth of property and gifts allegedly stolen by Mayweather and punitive damages. Mayweather's camp has not responded to requests for comment.
