Rapper T.I. was caught on camera in Las Vegas, shoving security guards, just hours before his bust-up with boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
T.I. reportedly approached the legendary boxer outside a burger restaurant in Sin City on Sunday morning, May 25. The two had a heated conversation before T.I. hit the sportsman.
A video footage obtained by TMZ.com appears to show the rapper getting into another fight just hour earlier. He was seen getting into a dispute with a security guard at a pool party after he was denied entry because he refused to be searched.
T.I. can be seen arguing and shoving the men, trying to gain access to the area.
After police officers broke up the scuffle, the rapper was allowed into the party. As for the incident with the boxer, as it turns out, Floyd is telling the truth.
According to TMZ, the sportsman only considers Tameka Tiny Cottle a friend, and is reportedly disappointed by the fact that T.I., who he also considered a friend, would think otherwise.
“Floyd is telling friends he’s shocked the rapper tried to pick a fight because he thought they were all friends,” TMZ sources revealed.
“Floyd never felt like there was any beef with T.I. — nor does he want to be romantically involved with Tip’s wife Tameka,” sources said.
