Floyd Mayweather, who faces the heavy-handed Marcos Maidana on pay-per view Saturday night from Las Vegas, tweeted out that his recent breakup stemmed from his fiancee’s abortion. The Tweet quickly coaxed a delete.
Check it out:
“The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion,” the undefeated welterweight tweeted, “and I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies.”
Reportedly, Jackson, who had received a $10 million engagement ring from the fighter, initially told Mayweather she had miscarried. Since the breakup last year, she has moved on to a relationship with the rapper Nelly.
The publicizing of such private information, and the pro-life pronouncement, quickly elicited online outrage.
