Miss Jackson Sues Floyd Mayweather For Defamation
Floyd’s ex-fianceé Shantel Jackson announced in a press conference last week (Sept 5) that she’s coming for the boxer where it hurts, his pockets. Miss Jackson hired famous attorney Gloria Allred and is suing her ex for invasion of privacy, assault, and false imprisonment, among other charges.
The papers she filed accuse The Money Team (TMT) general of physically abusing her by twisting her arm and choking her. She also claims he pulled a gun on her, pointed it at her foot and asked, “Which toe you want me to shoot?” And according to full details of the suit, these are two of many violent incidents she's had with the undefeated champ.
The two met in 2006 when Shantel was a hostess. They dated on-and-off for years before she officially dissolved their relationship. Since then, Floyd's publically blasted her via social networks and when she moved on to rapper, Nelly, his ridicule has increased and both her and Mo have become the object of Mayweather's cyber taunting.
During the press conference, Shantel was overcome with emotions as she explained her reasoning for taking legal actions against her former lover.
“There was a point in my relationship with Floyd that I thought we would be together forever. I loved him so much and I made sure that I took care of him the best I knew how.
I tried my best to make our relationship work by compromising and going to relationship counseling, but I finally realized that there was no hope and our relationship could not continue.
I loved Floyd deeply but he continued to disappoint and intentionally hurt me. I have been embarrassed and humiliated more than I can ever imagine by Floyd whom I once called my best friend and fiancé.
I have tried everything that I could and I have given Floyd every opportunity to do the right thing. Unfortunately, he has refused every opportunity to make things right. It is with a heavy heart that I finally realized that the only way to set the record straight to achieve justice for what he has done to me is through the filing of this lawsuit.”
Floyd has yet to respond to her allegations—which as we all know is a first.
