Floyd Mayweather’s Perpetual Party Machine Rolls Over T.I.

What happened when the Money Team CEO ran into the Atlanta rapper (and his wife) at a Hollywood club?

T.I. and Floyd Mayweather: Not up in the club together.

The Floyd Mayweather Perpetual Party Machine keeps right on rolling, and even his former foes are powerless to stop it.

The most recent example of this went down last night at a club in Hollywood – not to be confused with the club in Miami where Floyd dropped $50,000 worth of precipitation, or the club in his house where hung with scores of strippers (and then presumably made them breakfast) – when Mayweather found himself within bottle-sharing distance of T.I., who most definitely did not want to be invited up to the VIP.

That’s because T.I. and Mayweather have been through some shit over the past year. During a press conference leading up to his fight against Marcos Maidana in 2014, Mayweather said something about T.I.’s wife, Tiny, that ruffled a few feathers. (It sounded like he admitted to sleeping with her, but Floyd flatly denied it, saying he would “never disrespect a marriage.”)

Regardless, T.I. was none too thrilled about all the chatter surrounding Mayweather and his wife, and the feud boiled over into a chair-throwing brawl when the rapper and the boxer crossed paths at a Las Vegas Fatburger in May 2014. While tensions eventually eased – T.I. even went so far as to sorta congratulate Mayweather with a “#NeverBeenAHater” tweet following his fight against Manny Pacquiao – it still doesn’t look like they’re on the best of terms.

Case in point: Wednesday night at Hollywood’s Warwick (sadly, not named in honor of the dude who played Willow). Mayweather showed up first, with T.I. arriving shortly after. Finally, Tiny rolled up, which could have led to a potentially awkward situation – and possibly more chair throwing – had cooler heads not prevailed. According to TMZ, upon realizing Money was up in the club, T.I. and Tiny left after only three minutes. And as they departed, a TMZ cameraman managed to ask T.I. if he had a chance to speak with Floyd, to which the rapper quickly replied, “Nah, man, I didn’t find the opportunity.”

No word on what time Mayweather left the club, but given his recent run, it’s entirely possible he’s still there right now.
