LAS VEGAS (PIX11) – A wild brawl erupted inside a Las Vegas Fatburger restaurant after rapper T.I. took a swing at Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr. Sunday morning, TMZ is reporting.
Witnesses said that Mayweather was eating when the Atlanta-born rapper walked up to him and started “jawing” at the boxer. The gossip site reports that T.I. took the first swing, but that the one-on-one fight was quickly broken up by bodyguards.
Cell phone video shows Mayweather yelling — most likely at T.I. — “control your b—- motherf—–.” The second video captures a chaotic scene in the restaurant after the confrontation apparently sparked a wild brawl that involved flying chairs and the slashing of a Fatburger employee. Photos from TMZ show him bleeding from a three-inch gash to his side, but he refused treatment and would not cooperate with police at the scene.
It’s still not clear what caused the altercation, but there is speculation that a photo posted by T.I.’s wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle of her hanging out with Mayweather’s daughter could be to blame. In the caption “Tiny” says, “Had to come celebrate with my new boo @moneyyaya Happy Birthday bae.”
