Mayweather Sued Over Rap Dispute
Boxing champion-turned-record executive FLOYD MAYWEATHER, JR. has been targeted in a lawsuit by bosses of a New York management company, accusing him of stealing a rap artist for his label.
Bosses at Long Island-based Just for You Entertainment accuse the undefeated champion of "surreptitiously signing" Freck Billionaire - real name Jeffrey Whitters - to Philthy Rich last year (08).
Just for You executives claim to have spent $155,000 (£97,410) on studio time, living costs, and travel expenses under an exclusive contract signed with the rapper in 2005. They are seeking at least $600,000 (£400,000) in damages, reports the New York Post.
Mayweather, Jr. could not be reached for comment as WENN went to press.
