According to TMZ, a lawsuit Floyd Mayweather just filed against his former girlfriend Shantel Jackson sees the undefeated boxer alleging that Jackson funded several personal shopping sprees for herself by gaining unauthorized access to his credit card accounts, in addition to taking cash that was scattered around his house. He also says that, in an effort to keep her spending a secret, she had several items that she purchased shipped to a secret location.
In a bizarre twist, Mayweather's suit says that Jackson praised him in public whenever he got crappy press for the sole purpose of gaining his trust. “As a result of that confidence, Mayweather, whose education ended at eighth grade, did not audit or otherwise inspect either his cash or his credit card statements for theft by Jackson,” it reads, though the boxer's reps later clarified that he actually left school four years later, in the 12th grade.
Finally the claim says that Mayweather only learned of the alleged deceit when one of their mutual friends informed him that Jackson was bragging about it. Though there no specific dollar amount is available, Mayweather is suing her for theft. He says he wants “triple damages.” As if that wasn't complicated enough, she's also suing him for a number of things, including invasion of privacy, defamation, and domestic violence, the last of which is expected to get a trial date in the very near future.
Jackson first sued Mayweather back in 2014, where she alleged that he choked her during an argument, accused her publicly of aborting their twins, and pointed a gun at her head. The couple had a romantic relationship that lasted for eight years, and they lived together from 2008-2013.
