Shantel Jackson file civil lawsuit against Ex-Boyfriend Floyd Mayweather For Assault, Defamation
|Shantel Jackson file civil lawsuit against|
Ex-Boyfriend Floyd Mayweather
Jackson claims Mayweather has gotten violent with her on multiple occasions, noting that the first incident occurred in 2012 after he was released from prison for beating the mother of his children, Josie Harris.
Jackson alleges the two were arguing when "he twisted [her] arm, choked her and forcibly took her phone away from her to look through it."
In April 2013, Jackson alleges they engaged in another argument and Mayweather "bent her arm, restrained her, and pointed a gun at her foot, asking 'Which toe do you want me to shoot?'" He then demanded she remove her 17-carat diamond engagement ring.
Another incident occurred this past February in which Jackson claims Mayweather refused to let her leave his Los Angeles condo after an argument. He allegedly grabbed her by the arm, dragged her back inside and blocked her from leaving for more than an hour.

Jackson also says Mayweather invaded her privacy when he posted photos of her sonogram and abortion papers on social media.
He said the "real" reason they broke up was because she "killed our twin babies."
Jackson is also suing for invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment and more.
In a press conference earlier this week, Mayweather's ex announced her decision to go forward with the suit. Sitting beside attorney Gloria Allred, Jackson stated:
"There was a point in my relationship with Floyd I thought we would be together forever. I loved him so much and I made sure that I took care of him the best I knew how.
|Mayweather & Jackson|
I loved Floyd deeply but he continued to disappoint and intentionally hurt me. I have been embarrassed and humiliated more than I could ever imagine by Floyd who I once called my best friend and fiancé.
I have tried everything I could and I have given Floyd every opportunity to do the right thing. Unfortunately, he has refused every opportunity to make things right. It is with a heavy heart that I finally realized that the only way to set the record straight and to achieve justice for what he has done to me is through the filing of this lawsuit.
