Floyd Mayweather

Allegedly Involved in Kidnapping & Brutal Beating

Over Missing Jewelry

3/12/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0312-mayweather-02
Floyd Mayweather allegedly orchestrated a savage attack on two of his employees he suspected of stealing his jewelry ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports ... the two men had been hired to work on Floyd's Vegas homes ... but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger at them. 

We're told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location. 

When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them -- along with a number of his "people" --  who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs. 

Our sources say the attack was so brutal the men could have easily died.  Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days.

One source put it this way, "It was some 'Breaking Bad' s**t."

We're told the men are adamant they never took anything from Floyd and it appears Floyd realizes that now.  But here's the problem for the champ -- sources familiar with the situation say the attack amounts to attempted murder, mayhem and kidnapping.  We're told the men have retained a lawyer.

We reached out to Floyd's people for comment -- so far, no word back.

He has done this to several people in Las Vegas whom didn't come forward. I am glad someone had the balls to report this monster!! And he attempted to beat up his housekeeper too. But wasn't aware she carried a gun. She got away. Unlike one of these victims whom has a ccw. A 19year old rapper is also among his victimes..

"I young, rich and black, now let me figure out a way to go to jail." It used to be we went to jail because we were trying to make money. We go now because deep down, we feel like we belong there. Mr. Luther King and Muhammed Ali would really be proud of these types.

Someone should just beat the hell out of this little ****y bastard. He might be a good or great fighter, but in my book, he is just a punk.

Typical way a street dude handles a problem instead of being mature about and asking them if they took it. He has enough damn money to replace it any way. Now he's facing attempted murder charges?! How stupid!
