Boxer Floyd Mayweather claimed in a Facebook post that he broke up with his ex-fiancee, Shantel Jackson, after she allegedly aborted the couple’s “twin babies.”
On Thursday morning, Mayweather, 37, took to his official Facebook account to post a photo of what he claims to be a document relating to a sonogram that Jackson had in December, with a caption that accused her of having an abortion.
“The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies. #Shantel Jackson #FloydMayweather #TheMoneyTeam #TMT,” the post read.

The sonogram was allegedly performed on a woman named “Christine Jackson.” The document posted by Mayweather notes that the “Indication For Sonogram” was “Fetal Age to Determine the Appropriate and Safe Method of Abortion.”
Mayweather’s post drew intense criticism from his Facebook followers, and the undefeated boxer eventually decided to delete it. However, Barstool Sports captured an image of the original message, which can be viewed here.
Neither Mayweather nor Jackson has issued a response to the boxer’s post about her alleged abortion.
The welterweight boxer’s claims regarding Jackson’s alleged abortion have yet to be authenticated, and his social media accounts are often accessed by members of his inner circle, so it’s unclear if Mayweather leaked the document himself. In September 2013, Mayweather claimed that an Instagram photo that mocked Oscar De La Hoya’s struggles with drug addiction was posted without his consent, TMZ reported.
In 2010, Mayweather proposed to Jackson with a $10 million engagement ring, TMZ reported. However, on April 12, Jackson and Mayweather, who had been together for at least four years, had decided to end their engagement.
“Miss Jackson has moved on with her life from Floyd and is saddened that she has had to deal with many problematic and dramatic situations from the media since their breakup.”
According to Jezebel, Jackson broke up with Mayweather because of his infidelity. The boxer has been linked to other women in recent months, including an individual named “Princess Love,” who allegedly set him up to be robbed last October.
Meanwhile, Jackson has reportedly moved on with Nelly. On Monday, the pair were spotted attending a Miami Heat playoff game together.
