Well ... this is unsettling.
The Facebook page for boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. was updated earlier today (Thurs., May 1, 2014) with a status that featured a sonogram of twin fetuses still in the womb, along with a caption from someone posing as "Money" with the following message:
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. #ShantelJackson #FloydMayweather #TheMoneyTeam #TMT
Social media is probably not the best place for that kind of thing.
Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if it was posted by Mayweather. While the account and language used would indicate as much, there are just too many members of "The Money Team" to be sure. In addition, celebrities and athletes are hacked on a routine basis and often put in awkward or embarrassing situations.
Just ask UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
The timing is also a bit peculiar, considering Mayweather is fighting Marcos Maidana in two days (more on that here) and is likely pre-occupied with his upcoming title fight. A report from our friends at Fight Hype confirms that an abortion did lead to the pugilist's break up with Jackson, but that does not mean the Facebook post was "Money."
According to one source, Jackson originally claimed to have had a miscarriage, but it didn't take long for Mayweather to discover the truth of the abortion. Mayweather was said to be affected "emotionally and mentally" as abortions go against his belief of killing babies. Furthermore, we're informed that Mayweather began to question if the babies she was carrying were really his, causing him to call an abrupt end to the relationship.
The post has since been deleted, but the attacks on Jackson continue. The latest update featured a "Throwback Thursday" photo of her face (see it here) with the caption, "Before all the plastic surgery I had to pay for. I'm a Indian giver I want my money back LOL."
If it wasn't him, then I feel sorry for the staff member who takes the rap for this one, considering what happened the last time a Mayweather employee messed up.
