Exclusive: Shantel Jackson Sues Floyd Mayweather For Assault, Battery
50 Cent and jokes about literacy should be the least of Floyd Mayweather’s worries this morning. The boxer is being sued by his ex-fiancée Shantel Jackson and HipHollywood has obtained a copy of the lawsuit.
In paperwork filed Thursday in a Los Angeles court, Jackson accuses the boxer of battery, assault, invasion of privacy, defamation and false imprisonment among other things.
Our staff also obtained a letter from the actress/model detailing why she elected to file the lawsuit.
“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.”
Back in May, Floyd claimed he dumped Shantel because she got an abortion without his consent. “I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies,” The Money Team CEO tweeted at the time.
Floyd and Shantel split up last year.
