By now, we’re all aware of the Floyd Mayweather and T.I. fiasco, and everyone has their take on what could’ve happened. Mayweather himself granted an exclusive interview to Necole Bitchie where he detailed how it all went down. Although he confirms that it had something to do with Tip’s wife Tiny, he makes it clear he’s never crossed that line.
[T.I] came to me when I was in New York. He stepped to me when I was at the jewelery store like, “Yo, let’s go outside and talk.” We went outside to talk, but he talked about, basically, “These girls tryna play us against each other.” I said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re talking about your wife?” I never put up a picture of her on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I was basically like, “Listen. I’m letting you know I ain’t got…me and your wife don’t have nothing…if you think so.
He explains that he was again approached by Tip but this time, he didn’t take it so easy on the rapper
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.
He goes on to say T.I. did take a swing at him, and extends an apology to Tiny. Full interview here.
