World champion boxer Floyd Mayweather broke up with his fiance’ Shantel Jackson last year and, this past May, he made the reason public. Mayweather alleged that his fiance aborted their twin babies.
At that time, Floyd’s Facebook page and his Instagram account each displayed an image of what appears to be ultrasound results and analysis showing at least two unborn children. The document was accompanied by a caption that read, “The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies.”
Now, Jackson is punching back — she has filed a defamation lawsuit that also claims Mayweather hit, restrained, choked and publicly humiliated Jackson in the course of their on-again, off-again relationship. She is suing with the help of infamous pro-abortion attorney Gloria Allred.
Jackson won’t say if she aborted their twin unborn babies that prompted Mayweather’s social media complaints.
Here is more on that lawsuit:
Floyd Mayweather Jr’s former fiancee has filed a lawsuit against the boxing champion accusing him of beating her and later publicly humiliating her by posting online a sonogram of her pregnancy and claiming they broke up because she got an abortion.
Shantel Jackson said Mayweather also threatened to post naked photos of her on social media if she didn’t take down a picture she posted of herself with rapper Nelly at a basketball game in April.
Jackson read a tearful statement in the offices of prominent attorney Gloria Allred in which she said she and Mayweather were together for seven years and that she loved him and thought they would always be a couple.
She said she finally left Mayweather after concluding he was abusive and would not change.
Allred did not specify damages in the civil suit against Mayweather, the undefeated boxing superstar whom Forbes described as the highest paid athlete in the world last year, with earnings of $105million.
She declined to say whether Jackson actually got an abortion when pregnant with twins by Mayweather, but said Jackson told Mayweather in January that the pregnancy was terminated.
