Quite possibly, the funniest beef in history might have ended.
The Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent beef have lasted for about ten years, but according to 50, it’s over. It started when 50 said TBE didn’t pay him $2 million that was used to create the Money Team boxing promotion, and it spiraled from there.
They gave us plenty of laughs over the years, but while on The Breakfast Club, 50 says the two realized that life is short, they have a ton of respect for each other, and that everything is all water under the bridge now. 50 even apologized.
The 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather beef gave us countless laughs that I, for one, will miss, but all things must end.
According to Mayweather, the tension goes back to 2012 when he had to do some jail time. Things were cool for a few months, but by the fall of that year, a rift ensued over business matters. Mayweather said that trouble can be traced backed to Tommy Summers.
Mayweather told Complex News that when he was locked up, Summers approached 50 Cent about getting into the boxing business – specifically under the TMT (The Money Team) Promotions brand.
When Mayweather got out, he learned 50 Cent wanted to remove longtime promoter/manager Al Haymon from the equation.
That’s when things started to go sour. By the end of 2012, the two friends were exchanging verbal jabs and doing petty things to each other in the public eye, and it lasted for years.
50 Cent said when Mayweather was in jail, he asked him to help run the business. Fif said when he first became involved, there was no formal paperwork under Mayweather’s name or brand, so he took care of that on the business end.
He also began investing in the company and brand, including signing fighters to the team. Once Mayweather was released and back on his grind, 50 Cent expected at some point to be repaid for half of his investment as a partner, and that amount was well over $1 million.
