On Thursday, Aug. 4, the model held a press conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred where she accused Mayweather of assaulting her on several occasions in addition to pulling a gun on her.
“There was a point in my relationship with Floyd that I thought we would be together forever. I loved him so much and I made sure that I took care of him the best I knew how.
I tried my best to make our relationship work by compromising and going to relationship counseling, but I finally realized that there was no hope and our relationship could not continue.
I loved Floyd deeply but he continued to disappoint and intentionally hurt me. I have been embarrassed and humiliated more than I can ever imagine by Floyd whom I once called my best friend and fiancé.
I have tried everything that I could and I have given Floyd every opportunity to do the right thing. Unfortunately, he has refused every opportunity to make things right. It is with a heavy heart that I finally realized that the only way to set the record straight to achieve justice for what he has done to me is through the filing of this lawsuit.”
Among the claims of her lawsuit, it states that…
“He twisted [her] arm, choked her and forcibly took her phone away from her to look through it.”
In April 2013, he “bent her arm, restrained her, and pointed a gun at her foot, asking ‘Which toe do you want me to shoot?’”
And who can forget when he invaded her privacy by posting photos of her sonogram on social media, accusing her of killing their twin babies?!
Jackson is suing Mayweather for assault, battery, defamation, invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and harassment.
There has been no word from Floyd’s camp and considering the circumstances, we hope that he is smart enough to bite his tongue this go around. Story developing. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
