Floyd Mayweather

Allegedly Involved in Kidnapping & Brutal Beating

Over Missing Jewelry

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.

Cro-Magna-Man,

This is what happens when these Foolish Celebs get Rich and buy so many material items and Flash-Them for all to see. Floyd has taken movies of himself with 1 million in cash, all kinds of Rolex, Jewels etc. He has told all the robbers in America, ' I got the goods.'

A simple 5,000.00 Gun Safe that is so big you need fork-lifts to carry it would have prevented this mess. And most smart Safe Owners Bolt them to the Concrete Slab from the inside so they are harder to move with the right equipment.

At least Floyd has a chance to be the Prison Boxing Champ for a few years.

Its about time the sports world stops embracing this two-bit little thug and sends him where he belongs....prison, for a long time. I hope his victims have the support of the courts to take every penney this sleazebag has ever earned. He is no sports hero, he is just another puddle of human excrement.

Get the **** out of here, Floyd would have to be the most stupidest guy on the planet to get involved with some like this ,much less orchestrated, unless he's lost his freaking mind...

Of course.. if some average joe was in his position, they would be in deep sh*t.. but I'm sure the worst that can happen is he has to write a check 10 times the amount the "stolen" sh*t was worth in the first place.. freaking jack a**. That's not how you handlethat type of situation.. maybe lock your stuff up?

This is the same man who attacked a security guard. Attacked the mother of his children, taking cell phones and threatening his own kids. He had a body guard shoot at some guy at a roller rink......and people say he would have to be stupid to do THIS? Give me a break!

If he does not go to jail for minimum 5 years I will see that he suffers the same wounds he inflicted...money and fame to a hood rat is a dangerous thing

I like how everyone that is bashing him talks about his career. You cannot take that from him, people are upset because he wins, why get mad about that? This is ridiculous and is no excuse for it,
