50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Beef: So Much for that Manny Pacquiao Dream Fight
Floyd Mayweather Jr. and 50 Cent are no longer best friends, apparently. A couple of weeks after reports emerged that the two were beefing over 50 Cent’s extremely close relationship with Mayweather’s lady, Shantel Jackson, 50 decided to set the record straight once and for all in an interview with the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show”.
“[The issues between us] really comes from … everybody around him is waiting on the next time he feels generous. And I have a lot [of money], so I don’t wait for nobody,” 50 said (via Larry Brown Sports). “I’ll go do what I gotta do. I don’t have to sit around and wait for the next time he feels like giving somebody something.”
Well, that doesn’t sound promising. Whatever the problem is, though, surely these two can work it out so long as both are willing to take responsibility for their role in the beef. Both are willing to take responsibility for their role in the beef, right?
“Me and Floyd is always gonna be cool. He is different. [There's been] a different side of Floyd coming out of the pen. That’s all,” 50 added.
Totally understandable. Being in protective custody and never being in any danger whatsoever is a very life-changing experience. It almost makes beating up women not worth it.
Look, nobody cares about these guys’ bond. Nobody cares about the Money Team. The only reason that 50 Cent’s and Mayweather’s relationship was ever even relevant is because folks were hoping that 50 could get his boy to fight Manny Pacquiao. Bob Arum doesn’t want to work with Golden Boy, and 50 Cent’s role in the process was thought to be something that could make the impossible possible. That’s it. Plain and simple.
But apparently they’re not friends anymore – which means it’s officially okay to stop caring about them now.
