Jackson used the proceeds of the pawning as rent money, reports Mstarz.com. She brought the bag along with the original receipt to the Beverly Loan Company, a luxury pawnshop in Los Angeles, California.

He repurchased the Hermes bag originally priced at $63,000, and the purse was recently seen placed on a table aboard Mayweather's luxury private jet which had other female passengers on board.
Money May also retrieved from her all the diamonds he gifted her when they were still in a relationship. The stones are estimated to be worth $7.8 million.
The pound-for-pound king, now in the thick of preparations for his bout with Argentinean boxer Marcos Maidana on May 3 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, had also recovered from Jackson a 2013 Bentley Continental which he sold back to the dealer.
For her part, Jackson underwent a laser treatment for the removal of a boxing glove tattoo on her wrists, confirming her parting of ways with her former BF, tired of his flirting with other women.
