Above is TMZ footage of a fight that broke out at Fatburger in Vegas early Sunday Morning after T.I. got in Floyd Mayweather Jr.‘s face because of an Instagram photo of T.I.’s wife Tiny with Mayweather’s daughter. A situation that completely caught Mayweather by surprise because he just wanted some burgers and now there are chairs flying all over the restaurant. Here he is explaining to Complex what the fuck even happened:
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.
That would be the photo above which, according to Mayweather, T.I. approached him about in New York in early May when the boxing champ made it clear he had nothing going on with his wife and just assumed they both left things cool. Cut to this weekend, where Mayweather was celebrating his daugther’s 14th birthday party in Vegas where he runs into Tiny again (she does suspiciously keep popping up) who takes a picture with his daughter. And that’s when shit went off:
So Memorial Day weekend, a lot of people come out to Las Vegas. Tiny and Shekinah was out here. They come to my party last night. They cool. Everything is cool. We was at the strip club. Everything was cordial. We having fun. I throw my daughter [Iyanna] a big [14th] birthday bash today. I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he walk in talking about we need to talk again. And then I told him, “You need to get the f-ck outta my face. That’s what you better do.” And then he said, “I ain’t talking to all these people so you ain’t gotta talk loud.” I said, “Listen, don’t come to my face with no disrespectful sh-t. Like I told you before, you must’ve forgot what I did for a living.” He said, “You do in the ring, I do it in the streets.” I said, “My man, I do it everywhere. You can find out if you want to.” Just like that.
Then a couple of words exchange and people got to pushing and a riot kinda broke out. And then a bunch of chaos and that was basically it. Because, like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain’t no damn fool to swing on me. Like, you must’ve forgot what I do for a living. He had a totally different look on his face.
Since the incident, Floyd has publicly apologized to Tiny for telling T.I. to “control his bitch.” As for T.I., he’s putting up Instagram videos making it clear he didn’t get two black eyes, but did bust his hand because something about the laws of Nigga-dom. I’m going to need Justin Bieber to translate:
Of course, the only way to settle this is to put them each in an elevator with Solange Knowles and see who makes it out alive. And before anyone says that’s called mandingo fighting and is as racist as shit, it’s not like I’m dressing up as Colonel Sanders and running a plantation called Candy Land like some other people I know. Leonardo DiCaprio. Keep your eyes on the enemy, folks.
