Floyd Mayweather took to Instagram on Saturday afternoon to address a comment that was “taken out of context” regarding his relationship with T.I.’s wife, Tameka Harris.
During a press conference on Friday to promote his upcoming fight against Marcos Maidana, a reporter yelled out: “What about T.I.?” Mayweather immediately responded, “What about the b*tch? I was f***ing his b*tch.”
After the video went viral, the 37-year-old took to the social media website to clarify that EVERYONE misheard him.
“At the press conference, I said ‘… he thinks I was f*cking his b*tch’. I DID NOT say ‘… I was f*cking his b*tch’. I’ve never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I thinks she’s a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage. #Mayhem on September 13th,” he wrote.
Back in May, Mayweather and T.I. got into an altercation at a Las Vegas Fat Burger over the boxer’s friendship with Tiny. HipHollywood caught up with Floyd while on the red carpet for the Think Like a Man Too premiere and the star revealed that he and T.I. had squashed the beef.
“I’m always going to be positive,” he said. “T.I. is a cool rapper, he is a good rapper and I wish him nothing but the best.”
HipHollywood also captured exclusive video of Mayweather confronting Tiny on the red carpet of the 2014 BET Awards. Tiny was preparing to do an interview with HH when Floyd began screaming her name in the background. Tiny, who appeared startled, immediately made her way down the carpet and successfully avoided the boxer, cutting our interview short in the process.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
