Things between Nelly and Floyd Mayweather Jr. continue to worsen all over Mayweather’s ex-fiancee, Shantel Jackson. Though Nelly and Miss Jackson continue to claim that they are “just friends”, they sure look like much more. In fact, Nelly was on hand for Miss Jackson’s birthday festivities and the two took some pretty intimate photos. Yesterday Nelly made an appearance on ESPN2′s show Highly Questionable and was of course asked about Floyd. Nelly said he doesn’t have any beef with Mayweather but that didn’t stop him from throwing a few jabs.
Nelly said Floyd doesn’t like the word “no” being said to him, and that it’s hard for him to understand Floyd. Nelly then explained the reason for that by attacking Mayweather’s education saying, “I think the whole thing is misunderstood.

$123 Million is a LOT of cash, and apparently Floyd Mayweather has that sum in one single banking account according to a report from ESPN writer Tim Keown. The story goes:
Mayweather has a single bank account with $123 million in it, according to an ESPN The Magazine feature by reporter Tim Keown.
Keown was with Mayweather in a Grand Rapids, Mich. Foot Locker when the boxer discreetly showed him his bank account receipt and said, “One account, baby.”
“I had heard that Floyd does his banking the old-fashioned way: going inside, talking to a real-life teller. He is also known to be a big proponent of maximum liquidity. Still, the amount of digits spread across the bottom-right corner doesn’t seem possible.”
Mayweather was the highest-earning athlete in the world from 2011 to 2012, making $85 million, according to Forbes.
It’s unclear what his exact net worth is, but it’s fair to assume that $123 million is a good chunk of it.
That net worth is set to grow even more in the coming weeks. Mayweather will have a $41.5 million payday when he fights Canelo Alvarez later this month, the largest guaranteed purse ever.
