50 Cent Picked Up His Buddy Floyd Mayweather From Jail Last Night (Video)
Floyd Mayweather had a coming out party last night in Las Vegas.
It was pretty much just like the traditional “debutante balls” thrown by rich aristocrats in the olden days to show off their daughters to would-be suiters. It was a big media event, and about 20 of his closest family members and friends were there for the occasion.
The only difference was that instead of celebrating Mayweather’s “coming of age,” this party celebrated his coming out of jail after serving two months of a three-month sentence he received after pleading guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery.
Mayweather’s lawyers had filed official complaints stating that his accommodations at the Clark County Detention Center in downtown Vegas constituted “cruel and unusual” punishment. Why? Because they say the sub-par jail food didn’t meet his nutritional needs as an elite athlete, thus jeopardizing his career. However, judge Melissa Saragosa rejected those ridiculous arguments on June 13, arguing that Mayweather had sufficient space and time for physical activity, and that the only reason he wasn’t receiving adequate nutrition was because he refused to eat the meals provided.
If the judge really wanted to tell it like it is, she may have also mentioned that if Mayweather didn’t like being in jail, he should stop beating up his girlfriends. But she didn’t go that far.
Still, Mayweather managed to get 30 days knocked off his sentence, thanks to work time and good behavior.
As for the little party that took place outside the jail when Floyd was released, reports say that among those in attendance were his 12-year-old daughter, Iyanna; his manager, Leonard Ellerbe; and his good pal, rapper 50 Cent.
In the following video, you can see 50 sitting there in a blue Bentley, then sitting shot gun as Mayweather takes the wheel and drives away.
(I guess he didn’t want to sit in the back seat and hug his daughter or anything.)
So now that he’s out of jail, will Floyd finally fight Manny Pacquiao?
