Floyd Mayweather, 50 Cent amid Twitter brawl
Former best buds, rapper 50 Cent and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. have put their friendship behind them and have started an all-out war with each other on the Twitterverse.
The fight is allegedly over a failed business partnership. Back in April, Mayweather announced that 50 Cent would be getting into the business of boxing promotions, an idea that made perfect sense back with the pair were still friends.
Then in July, the rapper announced that he would start promoting Mayweather and several other fighters. But when Mayweather got out of jail in the beginning of August, he had apparently changed his mind and the business venture between the two pals had fallen apart.
50 Cent confirmed the breakup of TMT (The Money Team) on Wednesday when he took to Twitter to rip apart Mayweather.
“TMT IS OVER the money team is no longer a team. So it SMS promotions that’s it thats all.SMSaudio … I’m no longer apart or down with TMT promotions. SMSaudio … If anyone wants a money team jacket I’m selling mine for a dollar. The nap back hat comes with it. That’s a fare price. SMSaudio … I movethe fighters to SMSpromotion cause the other half of the money team .Didnt put up there $MONEY$.SMSaudio,” 50 Cent wrote on Twitter.
He also continued to harass the boxer on Friday:
But of course Mayweather wasn’t going to sit around and let his old friend blast him, so he responded with this tweet:
The rapper also continued to stir the pot by announcing on Twitter that he wanted Mayweather to fight Yuriorkis Gamboa, who is one of his boxers. He also stated that he’d pay the winner a $20 million bonus.
After all that has gone down between them this week, it’s safe to say that their friendship is permanently broken.
