Floyd Mayweather has filed a lawsuit accusing his former fiancee, Shantel Jackson of stealing from him during their relationship and using the money for shopping sprees.
It was reported that the flamboyant boxer only recently found out about it from a mutual friend and claims that Jackson who is currently dating hip-hop artist Nelly, stole the cash from him and used his credit cards without permission to go on shopping sprees.
TMZ reports that according to court documents, during their time together, Jackson would praise Mayweather in public to gain his confidence – and allegedly dupe him into thinking he could trust her.
‘As a result of that confidence, Mayweather, who’s education ended at eighth grade, did not audit or otherwise inspect either his cash or his credit card statements for theft by Jackson,’ the documents state.
Mayweather only found out that Jackson had been allegedly taking advantage of him, according to the lawsuit, when a mutual friend told him she had been boasting about her alleged scheme.
Jackson, who is the inventor of the Shoe Gummi insoles designed for high heels, sued Mayweather in 2014, accusing the athlete of beating her during their relationship and later publicly humiliating her on social media by posting on Twitter a sonogram of her pregnancy and saying they broke up because she got an abortion.
