TMZ has been reporting this week that Floyd Mayweather Jr. allegedly arranged a beating of two men who had worked at his home “several weeks ago” and allegedly stole some jewelry from Mayweather’s Las Vegas home. But according to Las Vegas Metro Police, it is just a “rumor,” as reported Friday in the New York Daily News.
Laura Meltzer, a public information officer for the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, told the New York Daily News that at this time there is no investigation because no one has come forward to lodge a complaint.
“So I’ve been trying to put this rumor to rest all week,” Meltzer said in a phone interview with the New York Daily News. “We’ve had a variety of reports that have come out stating this even occurred. We have not had a victim come forward and make a report like what is being alleged.
“So if this even occurred, it’s something where the victim has not come forward to the police to make an official complaint.”
A phone call to Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, has not yet been returned.
