Today, NecoleBitchie did an exclusive interview with the champion, Floyd Mayweather! The video is to be uploaded any second now, but here are some of the highlights according to NecoleBitchie.com
Floyd on his relationship with Tiny
I been knowing Tiny before T.I. I’ve never slept with her, I never kissed her, never touched her in no inappropriate way. Her friend Shekinah wanted to come to the [May 4th] fight, she brought Tiny with her. They came to the fight.
After the fight was over Saturday night, Sunday they came over my mother’s house. My mother had a big, big party for me. They came over and showed love. They came over to my house all cool, all respect. Hang out with The Money Team, my crew. Everybody was cordial. No disrespecting type. After that, I guess she put a picture up on Instagram of her at the fight so I guess he [T.I.] was feeling some type of way.
On T.I approaching him over the Instagram photo
[T.I] came to me when I was in New York. He stepped to me when I was at the jewelery store like, “Yo, let’s go outside and talk.” We went outside to talk, but he talked about, basically, “These girls tryna play us against each other.” I said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re talking about your wife?” I never put up a picture of her on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I was basically like, “Listen. I’m letting you know I ain’t got…me and your wife don’t have nothing…if you think so.
So Memorial Day weekend, a lot of people come out to Las Vegas. Tiny and Shekinah was out here. They come to my party last night. They cool. Everything is cool. We was at the strip club. Everything was cordial. We having fun. I throw my daughter [Iyanna] a big [14th] birthday bash today. I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he walk in talking about we need to talk again. And then I told him, “You need to get the f-ck outta my face. That’s what you better do.” And then he said, “I ain’t talking to all these people so you ain’t gotta talk loud.” I said, “Listen, don’t come to my face with no disrespectful sh-t. Like I told you before, you must’ve forgot what I did for a living.” He said, “You do in the ring, I do it in the streets.” I said, “My man, I do it everywhere. You can find out if you want to.” Just like that.
Then a couple of words exchange and people got to pushing and a riot kinda broke out. And then a bunch of chaos and that was basically it. Because, like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain’t no damn fool to swing on me. Like, you must’ve forgot what I do for a living. He had a totally different look on his face.
On wanting to apologize to Tiny
Only person I wanna apologize towards is Tiny. I said something like “control your b-tch” and I don’t want to say that about Tiny. So I do apologize to Tiny because she cool people, man. She cool. She never been disrespectful to me. Shekinah never been disrespectful to me. I’m going to continue to support Tiny and Shekinah cause they’re cool people and I don’t got nothing against them. So I apologize for that.
I’m not sleeping with that girl [Tiny] and I told that man before. But if I was, talk to her about that, don’t talk to me about that. But I’m not going to be disrespectful because I’m not going to sleep with a married woman. Now if she was divorced…I still wouldn’t do that because I’m cool with her and we have a real cool and cordial relationship and sometimes sex can mess a good friendship up. And basically, I don’t want to f-ck up a good relationship that I have with a person. So whatever I said, “stole your b-tch…take your b-tch” or whatever, I apologize to Tiny and all of her children and T.I.’s children for saying that. I want to apologize to the children and Tiny and Tiny’s family for saying what I said.
As far as him swinging on me, I ain’t having that. You see me. I’m out all night. He didn’t make an appearance so let’s see how his face look.
And that pic floating around with Tiny and Floyd supposedly at Fatburger together, he says she wasn’t even there.
Tiny wasn’t there. My daughter had a birthday party. Tiny is married. I respect that. I don’t care if y’all separated, she’s still married under God’s eyes and the law. I’m not going to sleep with a married woman. I’m not going to do that. Like I said on All Access, I’m becoming a better person.
While I don’t have all of the details on last nights fight between T.I and Mayweather… BallerAlert’s @Eleven8 does!!! Take a look!!!
I’ve been hearing whispers that TI’s wife, Tiny, has been linking up with Floyd Mayweather on the low and it didn’t help when Tiny was spotted at the Floyd vs Maidana fight a few weeks ago and then this weekend at Floyd’s Memorial Day party Friday night at Prive in Vegas. There must have been truth to those rumors because last night everything went to hell in a hand basket when T.I. caught Tiny and Floyd together.
Last night T.I. did what many rappers before him were afraid to do, put hands on Floyd Mayweather. Floyd & T.I. were in Vegas. T.I. was hosting a party at Prive while Floyd’s 14 year old daughter had her birthday party at the MGM. As she did Friday night, Tiny decided to party with Floyd, rather than hit her own husband’s event. It’s likely that’s what solidified things for T.I. so when he caught Floyd eating at a nearby Fat Burger restaurant, he confronted him.
The incident quickly escalated from talking, to punches thrown and chairs flying. Security attempted to contain the situation but it turned into a full on melee. In the exclusive video footage below, Floyd can be heard yelling “control your bitch!” at T.I.
Check out the videos and see for yourself.
Cocaine is a hell of a drug. Stevie J, most known for snorting lines (allegedly) and penning a few hits for Badboy Entertainment, Dildo-smashing Eve, and swinging with Mimi Faust, oh and owing over a million in child support…OH, AND THREATENING ME ON INSTAGRAM, is now being accused of beating his fake, TV
husband… oops, I meant wife, Joseline Hernandez. Jose took to Twitter today in an attempt to reveal her “Demons” but tweeting pictures of her getting her ass beat by her Stebbie. I predict that any day now Mimi Faust will attempt to grab some of the attention by coming forward with her own stories of how Stevie J. abused her as well. I can remember reading an article in Vibe Magazine yearsssss ago, where rapper, EVE told her story of some alleged abuse from Stevie as well. I’ll see what I can dig up on that. She (EVE) also interviewed with NecoleBitchie back two years ago, where she also hinted at abuse from Stevie J.
Wanda Sykes is a mother!!! Ooops, I meant, Ciara announces her new baby as “FUTURE ZAHIR WILBURN”!!!
In an Erykah Badu-ish fashion, struggling singer Ciara, today announced her newborn baby’s name as FUTURE ZAHIR WILBURN. Born yesterday, May 19th at albs 10oz, the new bundle of joy sent Twitter and Facebook into an uproar. Fans were shocked that she could be so ratchet as to name her new baby Future, considering it’s not even her “Baby-Daddy’s” name. The
Wanda Sykes look-a-like R&B artist couldn’t wait to jump on Instagram, stitches and all to announce her new child’s birth.

Beyonce’s sister went berzerk on Jay Z after the rapper insisted on going to Rihanna’s Met Gala after-party, the Daily News has learned.
But the fight that led to the Standard Hotel elevator explosion was set in motion 15 minutes earlier when a group of Solange Knowles’ non-famous friends showed up uninvited at the star-studded soiree, a source told The News.
“Two of her friends, who were not dressed for the Met Ball, showed up at The Standard and caused a scene downstairs,” the source said.
“They wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers. Management went to Julius (Beyonce’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.”
Our source said Jay Z soon got wind of it and snapped at Solange, saying “don’t use my name.”
The 27-year-old singer turned sullen and said she wanted to leave the party.
On the way out, Jay Z said he’d be heading to Up & Down on W. 14th Street, where Rihanna was holding her own post-Met Ball bash, a second source said.
Jay’s camp had called ahead of time to say he would be coming alone and “didn’t need extra security” because Beyonce wouldn’t be attending, the source said.
Apparently, that didn’t sit well with Solange.
“She seemed drunk and irritated,” said a second source. “She said, ‘Why can’t you go home?’ and to Beyonce ‘Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?’”
An incensed Jay Z didn’t back down. “You’re one to talk,” he replied, the source said.
Jay’s response set Solange into a rage. Once inside the elevator, she started punching and kicking her brother-in-law — an attack that was caught on surveillance video and leaked to TMZ.com on Monday.
Ultimately, the rapper decided against going to Rihanna’s party.
Reps for Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange did not return requests for comment.

Quiet as kept, everyone in in this industry is clowning both MImi Faust and Niko of Love & HipHop Atlanta fame. Word in the street is the two had signed a deal a a very long time ago as it relates to releasing the video of Niko digging his thumb in Mimi’s @$$. The rumors go so far as to say, Mona Scott-Young allegedly recorded the video while eating Kit-Kat’s and Butterfingers while holding her HD camera. (OK, I added that part!! Well, the part about the snacks, however, I can just imagine that’s how it went. But this morning, the two attention seekers were guest on #TheRickeySmileyMorningShow.
Yooooooo, Gary with the tea, who is known for throwing major shade with his questions, not to mention his daily entertainment tea, KILLED IT with his question, “What made you two release this sex tape?” Shawty, after that I almost had to pull my truck over and laugh!!! Niko’s response was “We just wanted to show the world HOW to have sex!” Screeeeeech!!!! WHAT?!?!?! Did he really just say that?!?!?! Wouldn’t that indicate that the sex-tape WAS PLANNED??? I do think so! Gary immediately got quiet as Mimi jumped in to try and clear up his answer, “The sex tape was LEAKED, we had no idea the sex tape was coming out!” Ummmm, I’m sorry dummy, but if that was the case how did you get a check??? Now, perhaps Mimi didn’t know, but that dude Niko (Is it me or are his teeth shaped like a pair shorts?) damn sure knew, in fact, I’m sure he shopped the deal.
