Floyd Mayweather Accuses Ex Of 'Killing Babies,' Says Reason They Split Was Her Abortion
Floyd Mayweather, the boxer who is reportedly considering bidding on the Los Angeles Clippers, posted an image of a sonogram to his Instagram and Facebook pages this morning and claimed that the image was of twins his ex-girlfriend aborted.
Floyd Mayweather Shames Ex For Abortion
Earlier this year, it had been reported that Mayweather’s fiancé Shantel Jackson broke up with the athlete because he’d been cheating on her. Months later, Mayweather took to Instagram and Facebook to share his side of the story by exploiting Jackson and her possible decision to terminate her pregnancy. Mayweather soon deleted the post, but not before it was screengrabbed by Jezebel and others.
“The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I'm totally against killing babies,” wrote Mayweather, according to Jezebel. “She killed our twin babies. #ShantelJackson#FloydMayweather#TheMoneyTeam#TMT”
Although Mayweather claims that the sonogram was done in December 2013, there’s no definitive proof about the timing or even if the sonogram was Jackson's. Either way, more people were outraged that the boxer would make such information public than there being a possibility that Jackson chose to get an abortion.
Smh at Floyd Mayweather. No matter how much money a man has… He is still just a man. That deleted post was disgusting to women everywhere.

Shantel Jackson Reacts To Mayweather's Abortion Post
Since Mayweather posted – and then deleted – the inflammatory picture and message, Jackson has used social media to show she’s completely over him. In one Instagram snap, she’s seen posing with her new man, rapper Nelly. “Look up MO say cheese… Lol You encourage me to smile and laugh through all my BS,” she captioned the intimate shot. “Thank You.#Realfriend P.S You are truly a comedian. LMAO… !!!"
In another Instagram post, in which she seems to directly address Mayweather’s earlier accusations, Jackson wrote, “Well….. with that type of behavior I guess you just gave up on owning that NBA team huh? Lol #childish #growup @NBA.”
Yesterday, Mayweather expressed his interest in owning the Clippers, saying the timing was right in an interview with Mashable. "It’s all about timing and the timing is right now,” he said. “Mentally, I am where I need to be business wise and I think this would be the biggest deal in sports history, with the biggest athlete owning one of the best teams in the world."
Jackson is likely right that Mayweather has blown his chances to own the Clippers, as the league won’t want to move from Donald Sterling and his racist views to an owner who shows his own blatant misogyny on social media.
Mayweather is slated to fight Marco Maidana at the MGM Grand on Saturday.
