Over the years, 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather have acted like both best friend and worst enemies, and it's never really clear where the truth lies. Over the weekend, it sure seemed liked the rapper and the boxer hated each other's guts, though.
The latest beef between these two former pals appears to go back to last month, when Mayweather dropped $18 million on what he called "The Billionaire Watch." In an Instagram comment, 50 called Mayweather out, writing, "Man they found the 1 ni**a in the world, dumb enough to buy that watch."
It took a while, but Mayweather apparently caught wind of the comment. In his own Instagram post, the retired boxer went it on 50 with a lengthy screed that aired some highly personal dirty laundry. Among Mayweather's insults:
"you're mad because your oldest son Marquees mother doesn’t want to be with you! Your Son, your own flesh and blood don't want nothing to do with you!"
"That’s not a Mansion in Connecticut that you're in debt for, that’s a dump, a money pit an oversized trap house!"
"You’re always talking about somebody is broke, but the last time I checked it was Curtis Jackson that filed for bankruptcy not Floyd Mayweather."
"So quick to gossip like a Bitch, why don't you tell everybody how you got Herpes from DJ."
In another post, Mayweather revisited the apparent tension between 50 and his son Marquees, writing that "Uncle Floyd still got you!" Then he suggested that 50 is not the father of his youngest son, Sire.
Still not done, Mayweather fired off a message that included a picture of his $18 million watch and shot of a gaunt 50 Cent from when lost more than 50 pounds to appear in the movie All Things Fall Apart.
50 didn't sit idly by while Mayweather ripped him though. In his own Instagram clap back, the rapper wrote that Mayweather never actually bought that $18 million watch and suggested that "gambling and girl" have left him broke. In another post, he called out Mayweather for his "11 Domestic violence cases."
As we wait for the next volley in this social media smackdown, we'll leave you with this: A tweet from a previous public spat between 50 and Mayweather which ended with the Queens-born rapper admitting that it was all a stunt to get attention.
