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.

So what will he be known for... Being an undefeated champ or a prison lifer because of kidnapping, attempted murder, and that other time of going to jail for hitting his wife. Wow. What a loser.

And this guy is an example to his little buddy, Justin Bieber. When will Americans stop being brain dead, and start looking at the rampant mental illness in your mainstream society?

Keyword: ALLEGEDLY --- & why weren't any sources named? TMZ known for reporting that hot bull****. I hate tabloids with a passion & I ain't even famous yet. Floyd about to make $70M on May 3rd, why would he risk it to beat two people ass? The man already said ain't nothing fun about jail, so why would he risk going back? C'mon y'all gotta think. Smh

Pretty funny that TMZ is the only ones reporting it. ESPN hasn't said a pep on it. Sounds like more made up BS.

Don't get mad    

Tell you the truth this would be easy to get out of this situation for him. Mayweather would just have a couple of guys take the blame and he's out even if the story was true. Which I doubt it is because tmz is the only one reporting this.
