Floyd Mayweather Jr. started a media storm yesterday when video surfaced of what appeared to be him saying he slept with T.I.’s wife, Tiny, while speaking at a press conference for an upcoming fight. But, according to the world class boxer, a couple of misheard words by the press put his statement in the wrong context. As previously reported, in the video, Floyd appears to say, “F-ck the b-tch. He just mad I was f-cki– his b-tch,” when asked about his beef with T.I. Floyd is now refuting those reports. Taking to his Instagram, Floyd put out the following statement, “At the press conference, I said “… he thinks I was f*cking his b*tch”. I DID NOT say “… I was f*cking his b*tch”. I’ve never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I thinks she’s a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage. #Mayhem on September 13th.”
T.I. has yet to respond publically, and probably won’t. Check out Floyd’s statement, below.
Those that are happy Drake and Chris Brown have finally deaded their longstanding beef have hip-hop producer Mally Mall to thank. The California rap veteran recently revealed it was him who helped the Drizzy and Breezy bury the hatchet and brought the two artists together in the studio. “They were in Vegas, and that’s when we squashed the beef,” he told a TMZ camera man. “I initiated it. We finished it, and wrapped it up.”
Mall was mum on what the two worked on in his studio, but he did confirm they were working on “a project.” He also went on to say the truce was genuine and Rihanna’s name was never brought up during the studio session. “It’s definitely all love,” said Mall. “I think everybody gets the picture now. You act like a jump off you get treated like one.”
Many believe the Drake and Chris Brown’s beef stemmed from their relationships with Ri Ri. At the height of the rift, Brown and Aubrey’s crews had an infamous bottle throwing brawl inside W.i.P nightclub in NYC in 2012. But, according to Mall, the past is the past.

Meek Mill will remain in jail at least until September as the judge in his case has denied the rapper’s lawyer’s request for an emergency hearing to try to get the MMG MC freed at an earlier date, reports Philly.com. The Philadelphia rapper’s lawyers Christopher Warren and Dennis Cogan filed the petition Thursday (July 17) requesting a hearing within three days. However, Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley, who sentenced the 27-year-old rapper to 3 to 6 months jail, will not be available for such a hearing until September. She also rejected the notion of another judge hearing the case. This has left Meek’s counsel frustrated. “All I’m asking for is a hearing to learn why [his jailing] is constitutional and they won’t even give me that,” Warren told reporters.
As previously reported, the Dreamchasers CEO has been jailed since July 11 when he was sentenced to 3 to 6 months in jail for a probation violation. On Monday, Warren and Cogan plan to file what is known as a writ of mandamus, a rare order that attempts to get a higher judge to force Brinkley into an emergency hearing. They contend his jailing was unconstitutional because he was not notified of his violations via written notice and Brinkley failed to hold two hearings.
When revoking his bail Brinkley said Meek, “failed to provide his probation officer with a working phone number, used his Twitter account to disparage the officer and the prosecutor assigned to the case, booked out-of-town concerts without court permission, was “combative” and “disrespectful” to probation-office staffers and posed for a picture posted on Instagram holding a gun.”
Meek Mill’s sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money is scheduled to drop September 9.

Apparently Floyd Mayweather hasn’t heeded his pal 50 Cent’s advice. Just when you thought things had died down between T.I. and Floyd, the latter just kicked the beef into high gear with some scandalous claims during a recent press conference, stating his beef with T.I. really stemmed from him sleeping with Tiny. During the press conference in Washington D.C. for his upcoming rematch with Marcos Maidana, Floyd was asked about his dust up with T.I. to which he replied, “F-ck the b-tch. He just mad I was f-cki– his b-tch.”
