(AllHipHop News) 50 Cent has publicly mocked Floyd Mayweather Jr’s reading ability and his relationship problems in the past week, but according to him it’s all love. In a recent interview, 50 Cent explains why he makes fun of Floyd Mayweather Jr and how Mayweather Jr’s finances could potentially deplete soon.
During a recent interview with M Live, Mayweather Jr stated that unlike Hip Hop artists, “every home that I have is paid for, every car that I have is paid for, and I am a hundred-million-dollar man.” 50 Cent spoke with XXL recently and detailed how he “loves” Mayweather Jr and has tried to help the boxing star with his finances:
I don’t hate him, I love him, actually. Entering the sport of boxing is a reflection of that relationship. He doesn’t make any money away from the sport of boxing. That tells you when he’s done fighting, he’s done period. I just try to encourage him to do things away from the sport.
50 Cent later remarks Mayweather Jr does not have a “sustainable lifestyle” and “I’ll have to help him when it gets too tough.” During the BET Awards weekend in late June, Mayweather Jr gifted his girlfriend Doralie Medina with over $70,000 in jewelry and clothing, two weeks after gifting her with a $300,000 Rolls Royce.
In February 2013, Mayweather Jr. signed a six-fight deal with Showtime worth $200 million. Mayweather Jr was 2013’s highest paid athlete after accumulating $105 million.
