Tiny Harris and rapper T.I. Harris have addressed the Floyd Mayweather Jr. incident that took place over the weekend. Mayweather also issued a statement. Another report is saying that TI was involved in a fight earlier in the day in a separate incident.

A  photo apparently sparked a confrontation between T.I. and Mayweather at a Las Vegas Fatburger. “You already know!!!” Tiny wrote on Instagram before the incident. “There’s nothing like being surrounded by ‘THE BEST EVER!!! Champion s--t @floydmayweather @thatshekinah @thereallraye1 & @ikitchie #teammayweather”

The photo showed her with Mayweather and several other people. 

Mayweather said that he never did anything “inappropriate” with T.I.’s wife, and he also offered an apology to Tiny. “I don’t want to say that about Tiny,” he said, according to the New York Daily News. “So I do apologize to Tiny because she cool people. She never been disrespectful to me.”

Following the altercation, T.I. posted an Instagram video saying that Mayweather didn’t give him two black eyes.

“Two black what????? C’mon now,” he wrote. “Never in da history of [expletive]. But nice try tho. Lol”

TMZ originally reported on the alleged fight between T.I. and Maywetaher. TMZ said that T.I. is claiming he swung at Mayweather and hit the boxer, while Mayweather said that T.I. never hit him with a punch and he only had issues with his security team. 

“You could see why each side would want to spin things. If T.I. hit Floyd, how cool is it he landed a punch against the greatest fighter around? And of course Floyd would deny it, cause what champ gets clocked by a rapper?” TMZ also said.

According to Hollywood Life, TI was involved in another fight with security at a pool party hours before the incident with Mayweather. The report says that he attempted to get past the guards before they searched him, and he refused.
