Floyd Mayweather Jr. admitted he dumped his fiancé after he had discovered she had an abortion without his knowledge.
The sportsman confirmed he had broken up with his longtime partner Shantel Jackson in April, only less than a year after he proposed to her with a $10 million (£6.25 million) engagement diamond ring. He has now opened up about the reasons behind their split.
On Thursday, May 1 he took to Instagram.com page and posted a snap of what seems to be Shantel’s ultrasound on a medical document. It revealed she has been just over 6 weeks pregnant with at least two fetuses.
In the caption, Mayweather, Jr. wrote, “The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion (sic), and I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies.”
The post was later removed but Mayweather Jr. didn’t change his decision, adding she deserves the public shaming for deceiving him.
During an interview with V103 radio station, he said he found out from crews of his reality TV programme on the Showtime channel.
He said, “I reacted off emotions because I was upset, I want(ed) the world to know that she really had a miscarriage…. somebody from showtime had said to me, ‘Floyd… she didn’t have a miscarriage, she had an abortion’. I feel bad, she was telling me the whole time that stress from me made her have a miscarriage, when all in all, she went and got an abortion. She’s selfish…”
He also added, “I was in love with someone that I didn’t know.”
