If an ordinary person has a brawl with unbeaten American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr, chances are he would be beaten black-and-blue and probably be in a stretcher. However, Clifford "Tip" Joseph Harris Jr, now known as rapper T.I., disputes that common belief and the rumours that after his brawl with Money May over the weekend, he now sports two black eyes. To disprove that, T.I. posted videos of himself on Instagram as proof (http://instagram.com/p/ocK9IQgbiR).
The video comes with the caption, "Two black what?????? C'mon now. Never in da history of Ni - - a -dom. But nice try tho. Lol." He further wrote, "What they say? I got two black eyes? Where they at though? These ones I'm lookin' at? Are they black though, for real? Had them all my life. F - - ked my hand up though, that's about it."
Reports said that chairs flew when T.I. confronted Mayweather at Fatburger. The previous day, they were at MGM to celebrate the boxer's daughter's birthday, Shekinah. Tameka "Tiny" Harris, the rapper's wife who was the subject of T.I.'s jealous rage, was also there.
Money May is said to have controlled his temper from hitting the jealous husband because he was aware of the power of his punch. However, he was not able to control his tongue and told T.I., "Control you' bitch."
But Mayweather eventually apologised for those words, saying, "I don't want to say that about Tiny ... So I do apologize to Tiny because she cool people. She never been disrespectful to me."
Followers of T.I. on Instagram reacted differently to his video.
dinka_62 asked the rapper, "Why u mad at Floyd?, you should whoop tiny's ass"
drsoldaf advise to T.I. is: "Keep things positive, young brother. Pls don't compromise all Uve accomplished. Ure a role model also. Pls remain the smart innovative fella u are. Don't let any woman set u up for failure ...that's what this is ... not worth it, brother."
buhdabless is likely not a Money May fan as gleaned from his comment: "That nigga floyd running from the streetz! 'Where's my bodyguard'. Better stay in Vegas bitch."
