It looks like the drama between 50 Cent and ex-bestie Floyd Mayweather is heating back up!
On Thursday, rapper, 50 Cent fired the first shot via his official Twitter account, confirming the rumor that he and Floyd Mayweather were no longer friends and were not, in any way, partners in his upstart boxing promotion venture.
“TMT IS OVER. The Money team is no longer a team,” 50 Cent wrote. “I’m no longer a part or down with TMT Promotions. If anyone wants a Money Team jacket I’m selling mine for a dollar.
Recently, 50 also used the Twitterverse to indicate that his fighter, Yuriorkis Gamboa, wants to move up in weight to take Mayweather out.

A boxing website has obtained a copy of a letter sent to Floyd Mayweather on July 24, 2012 while he was incarcerated from his business associate Tommy Summers that seems to show that he was trying to convince his friend to join him and 50 Cent in their new The Money Team (TMT) Promotions venture. We’re not sure how this surfaced since in the letter Summers asks Mayweather to tear it up after reading, but in the letter he encourages the boxing champ to split from long-time adviser Al Haymon because he did an underhanded deal, and join the new venture so he can rake in over $100-$200 million a fight.

In a skirmish sounding eerily similar to the 2010 incident with his sons’ mother Josie Harris that landed Floyd Mayweather in jail, Floyd is accused of domestic violence against one of his other baby mamas.
According to reports the mother of Floyd’s daughter, Melissa Brim, called 911 at 2am last week to report that she had been in a verbal altercation with Floyd Mayweather and that he’d taken her cell phone and fled.
The home where call originated is owned by Floyd.
By the time police arrived Melissa’s phone had been returned by one of Floyd’s associates and she declined to press charges.
This is not the first time Floyd and Melissa have had to involve the cops in one of their disputes. Floyd pled guilty to two counts of domestic battery against Melissa in 2002.
It is not clear how this latest incident will effect Floyd’s probation.
First the break up with Fiddy Cent now this..
After his lawyer claimed that his physical health was rapidly deteriorating because he can’t eat the prison food, doesn’t have access to bottled water, is only getting 800 calories a day instead of his usual 3,000 to 4,000 and only has an hour to exercise, a judge has ruled Floyd Mayweather Jr. will stay in prison. Only 10 days into his 3 month sentence Floyd’s lawyer Richard Wright filed the motion hoping to get the fighter placed on house arrest or get him moved into general population where he will be able to move around more freely.
As inmate No. 1363917 at the Clark County jail in Las Vegas,Mayweather doesn’t have access to a television, computer or telephone in the small solo jail cell where on Friday he was beginning the second week of a three-month sentence in a domestic violence case.
Floyd has been getting lots of mail since someone posted his inmate number and address on Twitter, Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassellsaid. Jail mail is screened, and Cassell told The Associated Press that some photos to Mayweather have been confiscated as “inappropriate.”
“He’s gotten some mail and a couple of books. There has been some contraband that has been stopped,” Cassell said. He wouldn’t describe the photos in detail.
Mayweather’s lawyers in Las Vegas and his adviser, Leonard Ellerbe, didn’t immediately respond Friday to messages from the AP.
As a high-profile inmate, Mayweather is being kept separate from the other 3,200 inmates in the high-rise Clark County Detention Center, Cassell said. Continue reading
