Floyd Mayweather Has A Few Words For Adrien Broner After His Shots At The Money Team

Floyd Mayweather is responding to Adrien Broner’s shots at the throne.

Floyd Mayweather is now responding to Adrien Broner’s shots at the throne.

Broner has expressed some less-than-favorable sentiments towards some of the fighters on Mayweather’s The Money Team imprint as of late. Back in October, after snatching up his fourth title against Khabib Allakhverdiev, Broner sent a message to the undefeated champion, clowning his fighter Ashley Theophane. Just weeks later, Broner also took to Twitter with more words for his boxing promotion company:

In an interview with Fight Hype posted on Monday (Nov. 9), Mayweather finally shared his thoughts on Broner. Acknowledging his role in the young boxer’s career as a mentor, Mayweather expressed confusion regarding Broner’s motivations to speak ill of The Money Team. Noting that he “spoiled” fighters too much, he pointed out the inconsistencies between his support of Broner and his recent discontent.

“You got fighters that I've stood behind, like Adrien Broner. When he lost to Maidana, I was the first one to post a picture of me and him, and I told him, ‘You know what? I'm behind you. Hold your head up high. Stay focused and you'll be able to bounce back,’”Mayweather said. “But then you have this same guy that I'm defending and standing behind and going to war for, is the same guy that said, ‘You know what? I love my big brother Floyd Mayweather, but f**k The Money Team!’ He's the same guy that you can go on, if I'm not mistaken, my TMT website and see that he had on a Money Team shirt. And then you was in Vegas, he had on the Money Team sweatsuit. So I never really understood that.”

Casually throwing in that The Money Team pulls in eight figures a year, Mayweather went on to say that he has never spoken negatively of Broner, and that he takes comments against boxing adviser Al Haymon as comments against The Money Team. "Instead of saying, "F**k The Money Team," he needs to be thanking The Money Team." He also noted that he has attempted to offer Broner advice in the past.

“When Adrien Broner won his first world title, I don't know who he fought, I don't even know who the guy was, but I was happy for him and I always wanted to give Adrien Broner positive advice,” Mayweather said. When everyone had something negative to say about him, you know what I do? I say, ‘This kid comes from a rough and tough background and I just want to stand behind him, support him, and help get him to the next level.’ But you saying, "F**k The Money Team"? [...] I never had anything negative to say about Adrien Broner. If he does something that I didn't like, I'm like, "You know, AB, don't do that. AB, you shouldn't do that. You should take this approach."

Following his win against Allakhverdiev, Broner’s message to Mayweather also included a quip about Caitlyn Jenner: “Put Ashley on one of your private jets, bring him to come see me, and I bet I’ll bring the girl out of that boy like Bruce Jenner.” The undefeated champ had a response for that as well.

“You are there taking shots at Bruce Jenner,” he said. “When it’s all said and done, let Bruce Jenner live his life the way he wanna live his life. Bruce Jenner don’t even know who Adrien Broner is, but Adrien Broner do know who Bruce Jenner is. You gotta watch what you say because you don’t never know who you may need in life or who you may bump into in life…Adrien Broner still has a lot of growing up to do.”

Vic Mensa Apologized To XXXTentacion's Mother Over BET Freestyle Diss

Vic Mensa sparked controversy earlier this year after he took jabs at XXXTentacion's abusive past during a freestyle at the 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards. Many criticized the timing of his diss, saying he shouldn't have said it while X's mother was in attendance to accept her son's award. While Vic stated that he doesn't regret his comments, he admitted that he did apologize to X's mom.

"I actually reached out to his mother personally,” the rapper said during an appearance on radio's "The Breakfast Club" on Monday (Dec. 10). "I apologized to her because I didn’t know she would be in attendance… I wouldn’t walk back any of my statements because what I said, I meant. And some more truth came to light not long after."

He also mentioned that although his timing was inappropriate, his talking points were important and necessary. "At the end of the day, I do think that the conversation that I was trying to bring up and that I did bring up is a super necessary conversation," he continued. "Maybe the way of going about it was not the best for the time, but I think the conversation is one that had to be had – talking about violence against women and misogyny in hip-hop, but particularly violence against women. I had a lot of people on the low reach out to me and thank me for that."

As previously mentioned, XXXTentacion was accused of physically abusing his then-pregnant, ex-girlfriend. Vic's freestyle included the lines: "Only time you bear arms is in a wife beater, loser/Your favorite rapper is an abuser." Weeks after the viral diss, audio obtained by Pitchfork, revealed the rapper admitting to committing physical harm against her and others.

Romeo May Have Landed A Role In 'Bad Boys For Life'

Bad Boys 3 is officially going down, and there's going to be a lot of new changes. The biggest change seems to be major additions to the film's cast. In fact, Romeo Miller recently hopped on social media on Tuesday (Dec. 11), suggesting that he could be the newest addition to the Bad Boys team.

Romeo shared a photo of an email for a callback to the Bad Boys set on his Instagram Stories on Dec. 11. "When you get callbacks and opportunity to work alongside your idols, @martinlawrence and @willsmith, you go study and go ghost," the rapper-turned-actor said, mentioning stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.

Romeo isn't the only hip-hop star to possibly land a role in the forthcoming movie. Nicky Jam also suggested he was going out for a part during an interview with TMZ in Nov. 2018. "I actually came her because I'm doing a casting for a movie," he said at the time.

As previously reported Will Smith and Martin Lawrence announced that the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise is finally happening after years of negotiating. The upcoming film, entitled, Bad Boys For Life, is expected to premiere in Jan. 2020.

Check out Romeo's post below.

Safaree Says He's Over His Beef With Meek Mill: "He Ain't On No B.S"

Safaree is ready to leave the ill feelings in 2018. In a forthcoming episode of BET's Rants, Safaree dished about his previously beef with Meek Mill, insisting that he was way over the drama.

During the episode, Safaree addressed Meek's new attitude and maturity level. "As far as Meek—and I can see in Meek and everything he does now—he's way more mature than he was even a year ago," Safaree said. "From what he's been through, I can tell he ain't on no B.S. because when I hosted the BET Pre-Awards and all that, [Rick] Ross was there. Me and Ross, we spoke, we chopped it up and Meek was right there."

He also stated that he's moving on and focusing his energy elsewhere. "It was what it was. The s**t happened. Ain't nobody die. I'm over that."

As previously reported, Safaree and Meek's beef started in 2017, over what seemed to be the common denominator: Nicki Minaj. Meek started dating the rapper after her 10-year long romance with the Love & Hip Hop star.

Things escalated after Safaree accused Meek and his crew of jumping him during the 2017 BET Awards weekend in Los Angeles. Footage taken during the incident shows Safaree talking to some people at the same time that Meek hops out of his vehicle a couple of feet away. Soon after, someone is seen throwing a punch at Safaree. At the time, Safaree called Meek the "biggest pu**y on the planet, but he clearly has a change of heart now.

It's unclear if Meek and Safaree have officially made up, but this wouldn't be the first reconciliation that happened involving the CHAMPIONSHIPS artist. He previously made up with Drake in Sept. 2018.

Safaree's episode of Rants airs on BET on Dec. 11.
