T.I. thought Floyd was getting close with his wife...
UPDATE:TMZ reports that the brawl that broke out between Floyd Mayweathr and T.I. was due to the rapper being suspicous that the boxer was getting too close with his wife. According to the site, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle posted a pic to Instagram from earlier in the day with Mayweather's daughter and called the girl her "new boo." T.I. felt that the picture and others were disrespectful and went to confront Mayweather. When the boxer told T.I. to "control your bitch" T.I. lost it and took a swing.
The site adds that Mayweather is telling friends he was surprised T.I. picked a fight as he thought they were all friends and doesn't want to be romantically associated with Tiny in any way. He was angry about feeling falsely accused and thinks it was out of line for T.I. to go after him, as Tiny chose to hang out with him.
ORIGINAL: T.I. decided to test Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s 46–0 record in Las Vegas early this morning. TMZ reports that the rapper took a swing at the boxer in the wee hours of the morning at Fatburger on the Vegas Strip and it turned into a brawl.
The site quotes several witnesses as saying that Mayweather was eating in the place when T.I. walked up to him and started trash-talking. At one point he swung at the boxer and their bodyguards jumped in to separate them, which is when the brawl broke loose.
Police have confirmed that an employee was slashed and suffered a minor injury but refused treatment and didn't want to cooperate with officers. A rep for T.I. refused comment.
