Talk about ignant. For once, we’re not talking about Pacman. We talkin’ Floyd “Money” Mayweather, playboy. The temporarily retired boxer learned one or two things from the clusterfuck that was Black Super Bowl weekend in Vegas when Pacman and his crew shot up the club when making it rain went wrong.
Sandra Rose has footage of Mayweather making it rain in an Atlanta nightclub. “Floyd Mayweather emptied two Louis Vuitton bags full of cash into the crowd at a packed Dreamz nightclub in Atlanta last night. The IRS estimates about $30,000 was thrown.”
At least Money knew better than to carry the bills in garbage bags. Fortunately for the ladies, no one’s head was bounced off the stage. He was scheduled to drop $100K with Lil’ Jermaine Dupri the following night at Pure. He did his part by raining $50,000 on the crowd. Unfortunately we don’t have video of that.
What’s happened to Money Mayweather? He appears on the WWE and now he’s making Pacman Jones look good up in the club. At least Pacman kept it real when he made it rain in Vegas even if he proceeded to take his money back and tear up the club afterwards. When we say keeping it real, we mean he used real money.
My photographer Freddy O was almost arrested at a gas station this morning after trying to pay for gas with one of the counterfeit $100 bills that boxer Floyd Mayweather tossed in the air at Club PURE last night.
According to Fred (and several others in attendance) Mayweather’s “boys” were handing him the stacks of hundreds.
There is speculation that one of his “boys” switched out the real hundreds for the counterfeit hundreds and kept the real cash for himself. I would be inclined to believe that maybe Floyd didn’t know what his boys were doing, except that this has happened before!
Some club patrons in Las Vegas also complained about Mayweather tossing counterfeit bills earlier this year. We’re not talking fake bills of the copy machine variety – we’re talking print shop quality counterfeit bills.
Pacman told police that Edwards extorted $15,000 from him after the NBA All-Star weekend shooting in Vegas. He paid the money on the advice of his friends who told him that Edwards would come after him if he didn’t pay.
Police alleged in the documents that one of the go-betweens told Jones that if he refused to pay, the accused shooter would “go after Jones, his mother and daughter.”
A childhood friend also contacted Jones, urging him to pay the money, the document said.
The money was paid in two installments after being given to a childhood friend who passed it on (presumably after taking a cut).
Edwards was charged with three counts of attempted murder with a weapon and three counts of battery with substantial bodily harm. There’s no word on whether Pacman paid the money with garbage bags filled with bills of various denominations. Only if he could have bounced a stripper’s head on the stage after paying. Ah memories.
First Pacman and now Starbury? Carmelo Anthony must be rolling over in his grave or his pick. Late yesterday, Pacman copped a plea deal that will result in him getting probation in exchange for his testimony about Make It Rain night during the Black Super Bowl. Now Starbury has threatened to out Isiah Thomas after going AWOL and skipping last night’s game against the Phoenix Suns.
Gout/Heart attack-in-waiting Eddy Curry told Starbury that both were pulled from the starting lineup of last night’s game. Starbury went to the front of the plane (enroute to Phoenix) to speak with Isiah. Starbury emerged outraged and told the team that he wasn’t suiting up if he wasn’t playing. He then said,
“Isiah has to start me,” Marbury fumed, according to the source. “I’ve got so much (stuff) on Isiah and he knows it. He thinks he can (get) me. But I’ll (get) him first. You have no idea what I know.”
He proceeded to land in Phoenix and fly back to New York to impregnate interns like Jason Caffey until his situation is resolved.
What shit does he have? I would love to hear about Starbury, Isiah and Nate Robinson running the train on some intern in the back of Starbury’s Escalade while Jim Dolan watches through the tinted window because they won’t let him in.
ESPN reported that the Knicks were considering a contract buyout but the Daily News reports that Starbury could fly to LA and rejoin the team. Isiah also hopes to work things out.
“It seems like he and I kinda go through this every November,” Thomas said. “And then a couple of weeks go by and we kinda kiss and make up and we get back to the business of trying to win basketball games. Hopefully, in the next couple of days this will be resolved.”
Then again, I’d be pissed if I had to start behind Mardy Collins. I mean he can’t even spell Marty. Starting behind an illiterate and the off-brand Rolando Blackmon is no way to roll when you’re Starbury.
Fuck Christmas. This really is the most wonderful time of the year. NFL training camps open. The Premiership starts up again. Some athletes are in mid-season form and don’t need training camps or preseason matches. Allow the Deuce to introduce you to Gary O’Connor of newly-promoted Premiership side Birmingham City.
O’Connor decided to kick off the new season by having a drunken orgy with four hookers and three of his boys. He and a friend picked up the ladies of the evening up for £1,000 in a Birmingham massage parlor and took them back to their hotel across town where it was on like Donkey Kong. Incidentally, the hotel room was booked in the name of a Spurs player who talked shit about Birmingham players after turning his back on a transfer to the Blues this summer.
“…The orgy turned ugly when £2.7million-rated O’Connor—whose pregnant fiancée Lisa is expecting their second child—pulled one of the vice girls by the hair and swore at her after she had stripped off … The girls had intercourse and oral sex in the suite, on the bed and in the bathroom. Afterwards they returned to the club where they worked and complained to regulars about the way they were treated.”
Eyewitnesses at the massage parlor had O’Connor acting like a drunken douchebag before the incident.
“He was so drunk he started giving it large, bragging about how he was this top footballer. But I think I was the only bloke in the place who had recognised him.”
Orgies and roasting are so passé. How much longer until soccer players start making it rain? In the meantime, O’Connor would do best to remember these words. “My family mean everything to me and I will do all I can to make them happy. Family for me comes above all else.”
It shouldn’t be too hard to remember those words. He said them. Brilliant!
