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.

This guy apparently has true talent for boxing (I don't know I've never watched one of his fights)...but he sounds like a real dummy outside of the ring. The only reason I know who he is ..is because he spends stupid amounts of money on himself and his girlfriends, flashes wads of cash on Instagram, has allegedly beat up the mother of his children ...and he hangs out with 50 Cent...lol This cases (IF true) is ridiculous....how about actually finding out if these people took your stuff BEFORE going gansta on them and almost killing them?...He must be really dumb if he thought this wouldn't come to light and get him in BIG legal trouble...once again IF it's true....thing is Floyd has built himself a reputation that makes it easy to believe he'd be involved with dumb sh*t like this.

He probably didn't realize having someone almost beaten to death is illegal.

This is going to cost him a hell of a lot more than that dumb jewelry.
Why didn't he just let the police handle it?!!!

This probably won't even go to court. Floyd will probably buy them both a fancy car and put a Million or more in each of there pockets.

I guess Floyd is downright frantic over that jewelry. I could have sworn that he blamed one of his girlfriends for taking it.in fact I'm sure he did.

It sounds to me like they want to just get money out him... If it was that serious they would have called the cops weeks ago when it happened And wouldn't have just lawyers up to sue him. And it's funny it's coming out now when mayweather just announced his next big fight. He's good to his employees gives them everything they want and he wants loyalty from them.
