Nelly Clowns Floyd Mayweather For Not Graduating High School
Rucuss staffJuly 30, 2014
It’s no secret that Nelly and Floyd Mayweather Jr. don’t get along.
The two have been feuding ever since Nelly began dating Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson. During an appearance on Dan Le Batard’s “Highly Questionable” on Monday, Nelly was asked about his beef with Mayweather. The Country Grammer rapper said there is was beef, but he was not very convincing.
“I don’t have a beef with Floyd Mayweather, for the most part,” Nelly said. “The whole thing is misunderstood. I try to understand where he’s coming from, which is a little hard to do. I guess it’s one of those things where he is who he is. He’s one of those people who doesn’t like the word ‘no’ said to him.”
Nelly continued, “I think if anybody does that, I think that’s what kinda gets underneath his skin a little bit. But uh, I don’t know. It’s kinda hard talking to a guy who hasn’t graduated from high school.”
Nelly and Jackson went public with their relationship earlier this year. Since then, Mayweather and the rapper have been at odds. In an interview with Big Tigger, Mayweather said:
“[A friend of mine who dated Nelly] was like, ‘He’s on steroids. He’s broke. He has no money.’ She’s like, ‘He had to borrow a lot of money from Ashanti. Over half a million dollars from Ashanti. And I used to always say, basically, ‘That’s not my business.’ Anything happen in life, you could be at the top today and at the bottom tomorrow. I don’t have anything negative to say about him.
Like I said before, I can remember early on in 2000, he had that big album, Country Grammar. I was proud of him. As a black man, I’m proud of him. Even if he has problems, I could care less. I wish him nothing but the best. I want him to continue go out there and make music. I want him to continue to go out there and be the best that he can be. Because I’ve seen him at my fights, supporting me even though he had said some negative things about me as far as, ‘I’ve hung out with this girl that Floyd know,’ or ‘I hung out with that girl Floyd know.’ I’m not gonna do the same.
[…] I don’t want to say anything. Everybody handles situations in a different way. They handle it how they want to handle it. You just got to know when you getting with Miss Jackson, you cannot be cheap because she’s accustomed to a certain lifestyle. She’s accustomed to a certain lifestyle because she was dealing with Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather so she’s accustomed to a certain lifestyle and she’s going to want a lot.
Right now it hurts my feelings that she’ll do anything for fame. I feel like that’s degrading yourself. I want her to be very, very, very careful but with all that said and done, I can not say I don’t love her because if I say I don’t love her then that means it wasn’t real from the beginning.”
Nelly fired back on Instagram:
“Yo I would like to take this time to apologize to all of the guys that I have been cool with their ex or child’s mother, I truly did not know the strength of my powers! If I can make the champion of the world the day before his fight lose his mind and tell lies like this all over a basketball game!!!!! then it must be some regular guys on rooftops looking for me through scopes. Please please don’t shoot. Sorry I have kids!!!”
