Rihanna Duct Tapes Floyd Mayweather’s Mouth Shut at BET Awards (Videos)

rihanna duct tapes floyd mayweather's mouth shut

Rihanna was the undisputed MVP of the 2015 BET Awards on Sunday night. She didn’t win a single award, and she didn’t “sing” a single song. But she was the MVP nonetheless thanks to a couple of shocking (completely staged) on-camera moments.

The moment that generated the most buzz on the interwebz was when she got into an argument backstage with BET exec Stephen Hill and threw a giant stack of cash at him right before walking out to introduce the trailer for her new music video. (That’s right. A trailer for a three-and-a-half-minute video.)

Take a look:

At this point, though, you’re probably wondering what the hell this has to do with sports, which brings me to the other big Rihanna moment. You see, it just so happened that ReRe was seated next to none other than Floyd Mayweather during the show. And at one point as the show was coming back from commercial, the folks in the booth cut to a shot of her putting a piece of duct tape over Money’s mouth to shut him up.

Of course, if they really wanted to give everyone at home a vicarious thrill, they would have had Rihanna kick Floyd Mayweather in the balls. But taping his mouth shut wasn’t bad.
