More Details Arise In Shantel Jackson’s Lawsuit Against Floyd Mayweather
September just started and already it’s been a heart-wrenching month for domestic violence survivors.
Last week, Shantel Jackson filed a civil lawsuit against former fiance Floyd Mayweather for battery, assault, defamation, invasion of privacy, false imprisonment, harassment and infliction of emotional distress. New details emerged have emerged in the case that further portray Mayweather as a misogynistic jerk.
According to court documents, Mayweather showered Shantel in expensive gifts when they first got together. Then he became extremely controlling. Shantel allegedly had to “make herself available to him virtually at all times.” Jackson also claims that Mayweather attacked her in the same manor he attacked his previous girlfriend Josie for which he was arrested in 2012. Mayweather allegedly “choked her and forcibly took her phone away from her to look through it.” He Jackson forgave him.
Mayweather allegedly demanded to know the security code to Jackson’s personal LA home where she stored her belongings. “The same evening he took her jewelry, Mr. Mayweather directed one of his agents to remove large amounts of her personal property, consisting of clothes, shoes, purses, credit cars and cellular telephones” to “‘test to see how important these possessions were to her.”
Jackson tried to leave Mayweather, but he found her and “attacked her at gunpoint. He “bent her arm, restrained her and pointed a gun at her foot, asking: ‘Which toe do you want me to shoot?'”
According to the docs, “for a period of time’ after this attack Mayweather kept Shantel ‘a prisoner in his home.” After Jackson aborted his baby in 2014, he attacked her again. He ‘dragged her back by her arm into the condo and blocked the door and would not allow her to leave for more than an hour,” Jackson alleges.
When Jackson was spotted with Nelly at a basketball game, Mayweather threatened to release nude photos of her. She is seeking an injunction to prevent him from leaking the pics.
Mayweather now has 30 days to respond to the summons.
