Mega rich American boxer claims ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson stole cash and shopped using his credit cards without permission

American boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, 40, has sued his former fiancee Shantel Jackson, 33, for stealing from him. In his lawsuit, the mega rich boxer claims Jackson has stolen cash from him and swiped his credit cards for her shopping sprees without his permission. According to the lawsuit, Mayweather says that Jackson would make purchases with his money and have the products shipped to a secret location to conceal her tracks.

Mayweather says he only found out about the fraud through a mutual friend, who told him that Jackson had been boasting about her alleged scheme. "Before that, Mayweather, who's education ended at eighth grade, did not audit or otherwise inspect either his cash or his credit card statements for theft by Jackson," read a court statement from the boxer.
