Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. may have ordered the kidnapping and assault of two of his employees he suspected of robbing jewelry from his homes, according to a report.
Sources close to the situation claim that Mayweather hired the two men to work at his homes in Las Vegas, TMZ Sports reports. However, when an undisclosed amount of jewelry disappeared from the homes, the 37-year-old boxer suspected the workers of committing a robbery.
The two men were told to meet with Mayweather at an isolated location, sources told the website. When they arrived, Mayweather allegedly ordered several men to attack the workers, presumably over the missing jewelry. Several weapons, including clubs, were supposedly used in the beating, which reportedly had occurred “several weeks ago.”
“It was some Breaking Bad s—t,” one source reportedly told TMZ. The alleged jewelry thieves suffered several broken limbs and had to be hospitalized for an extended period of time.
The injured men have reportedly denied any connection to the robbery of Mayweather’s jewelry and have retained a lawyer to pursue a case against the boxing star, TMZ Sports. Mayweather has yet to respond to the allegations, but TMZ claims that he has since acknowledged that the men had nothing to do with the robbery.
This isn’t the first time that Mayweather has allegedly been the victim of a jewelry robbery. Last October, reports surfaced that his former girlfriend, Princess Love, set him up to be robbed on the night of his fight against Canelo Alvarez.
At the time, a source reportedly told Larry Brown Sports that one of Mayweather’s homes was robbed of eight Rolex watches, nearly $10,000 in cash, and several “other items.” The source also claimed that Princess Love was having an affair with Ray J, a former member of the “Money Team”—another name for Mayweather’s associates.
Later, a source close to Princess Love suggested that Mayweather orchestrated the robbery as revenge after the former stripper revealed that she was no longer interested in dating him.
“A robbery did happen but it was Floyd who had sent his assistant to break into where Princess lived and take only a select few items while she was at the fight,” the source told Bossip. “He continued to insist that her friends had most likely robbed her and that he was the only person she could trust. This was an attempt to get her to cut all ties to friends and move closer to him so that he could have total control.”
It’s unclear if last October’s alleged robbery has any connection to the new allegations reported by TMZ.
