Much before getting in a brawl with Floyd Mayweather Jr., T.I was caught in a shoving match, reports suggest. The rapper apparently showed up to Liquid, a Vegas pool party where Nicki Minaj was performing and according to reports by TMZ, the rapper tried to side step the guards which triggered a fight.
The security demanded to search T.I and when he refused the Vegas police reportedly stepped in. However, later the security let him enter. Later that day T.I. got in a major fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
T.I and Mayweather got into a fight at Las Vegas strip at Fatburger on May 25. The reason for their fight is being suspected to be Mayweather's alleged will to sleep with T.I's wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, at least that is what T.I thought according to reports.
However, according to TMZ, Mayweather had no intention of fighting with T.I and he thought that the two were friends.
"Floyd is telling friends he's shocked the rapper tried to pick a fight because he thought they were all friends," a source to the Web site revealed.
"Floyd never felt like there was any beef with T.I. - nor does he want to be romantically involved with Tip's wife Tameka," the source further said.
Later Mayweather opened up in an interview claiming that before picking up the fight T.I must have forgotten what the former does for living.
"Like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain't no damn fool to swing on me. Like, you must've forgot what I do for a living. He had a totally different look on his face," Floyd said in the interview to NecoleBitchie.com.
Meanwhile, during the fight Mayweather is also reported to have told T.I "These h** ain't loyal" which further intensified the fight.
