Earlier this year, boxer Floyd Mayweather got dumped by his fiancee Shantel Jackson after he allegedly cheated on her. But Mayweather has since apparently gone batshit insane, insisting that it was he who dumped her, and that he did it because she had "a abortion." To support this accusation, he posted what he claims are images from a sonogram Jackson had in December. Holy shit.
Mayweather posted the images — complete with identifying details and measurements, which we've blurred out — to Facebook this morning, writing as an explanation,
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
A few problems with this, besides the fact that oh my fucking god what is wrong with you Floyd?: First, not to be Captain Abortion here, but as someone who has supported women in my life through abortions at various junctures throughout my young adulthood, this doesn't prove shit. They don't hand you, like, a souvenir The Child You Decided Not To Have packet when you go to the doctor for a pre-abortion sonogram. They don't even do that in Texas (although I'm sure they would if it weren't for the damn judicial system fucking Perry's creepy megachurch agenda up). A sonogram just proves the subject of the sonogram was pregnant; it doesn't prove how the pregnancy ended, or that the children were even his. It does prove that if she did have an abortion, she likely dodged a bullet. Floyd Mayweather is a terrible person, and terrible people make terrible fathers.
His Facebook followers agreed, and after thousands of them expressed their distaste for his classless move, he took the post down.
For such a smarmy Defender of the Helpless, Floyd Mayweather's got an awfully violent rap sheet. Here's ABC News on the 2010 domestic violence incident that landed Mayweather in jail for 90 days in early 2012:
Mayweather pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery charges stemming from an incident two years ago, when he pulled the hair and twisted the arm of Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children. The younger two children watched the abuse while the older child ran out of a back door to fetch a security guard.
Prosecutors dropped felony and misdemeanor charges that could have gotten Mayweather 34 years in prison if he had been convicted on all counts.
During that incident, Mayweather allegedly threatened to kill Harris.
Mayweather also pled guilty to domestic violence and battery charges in 2002. In 2004, he ran into legal trouble again, when he allegedly punched two women in a Vegas nightclub, completely unprovoked.
Mayweather is scheduled to fight Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand on Saturday. He will be paid $32 million.
