Earlier this month, 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. had a very public falling out. They went back and forth on Twitter. They talked about each other in interviews. And, in the end, they agreed to go their separate ways. But, they never really explained why. Now, we finally have the answer. Or, at least, one answer.
During an interview on Power 106 in Los Angeles yesterday, Fif talked about his relationship with Money May. And, he claimed that, prior to him going to jail earlier this year, Mayweather asked 50 to help him get Mayweather Promotions off the ground. So, that's exactly what he did.
"I took a look and realized there is no Mayweather Promotions," he said. "There's no LLC. There's no seal. It's not incorporated. When he says help him with Mayweather Promotions and it's not there, I say, 'Okay, I know what he means.' He wants me to put it together for him."
So, 50 took the initiative and helped launch The Money Team Promotions properly by making it legal, signing some boxers, and spending a boatload of cash in the process. But, when Mayweather was released, he went out and started spending money on other things instead of paying 50 back for all the legwork he put in, which obviously didn't sit well with 50.
"I'm sitting there going, 'When you gonna give me the money…when you gonna give me your half back?'" he says. "But, I ain't tryin' to press him because he just got out of jail."
Eventually, he did press him, though, and Mayweather allegedly acted as if he didn't know what 50 was talking about. Words were exchanged, tweets were sent out, and…well, you know the rest. R.I.P. The Money Team Promotions.
