The cause of the brawl is unclear, but TMZ reports that T.I. had been upset by an Instagram photo his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, posted earlier that day of herself with Mayweather's teenage daughter. Mayweather reportedly told T.I. to "control your bitch" during the confrontation.

Las Vegas Police say that a Fatburger employee was slashed during the fight, but he refused medical treatment and would not cooperate with investigating officers. T.I. had already left the scene before police arrived, and Mayweather was on his way out. A representative for T.I. was not immediately available for comment.

Late last month, T.I. was involved in a standoff with the Los Angeles Police Department along with Game, after a fight broke out between friends of the two rappers and security guards for the Supperclub in Hollywood.

Bystanders captured the Fatburger brawl on video. 

Mayweather associate 50 Cent posted his own jokey reaction to the fight:

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
