Floyd Mayweather Is Being Sued Over Car Accident, He Was Not the Driver

Like dealing with the murder-suicide of his close friend, rapper Earl Hayes, wouldn’t be bad enough, boxer Floyd Mayweather now also faces a law suite over a car accident that happened a couple of months ago. The weird part is the undefeated, five-division world champion wasn’t even driving the car when the crash happened.

It was 7 in the morning when rapper Earl Hayes called his long time friend in what turned out to be the last conversation he would ever have. Mayweather later told police officers that he tried to convince him not to go through it, but unfortunately the rage was that big, Hayes shot his wife and then himself.

It was very difficult for the boxing champ to get back on his feet for the investigation to take it’s normal path and now more bad news just came in. Reports are Mayweather is being sued over a frightening head-on collision involving his kids even though the boxer was never really at the wheel of the car.

In fact, when the incident happened, back in June, Justin Bieber was the one to arrive first on spot and take the kids, as it would appear the pop singer - who is also a close friend - happened to be in the area.

Now, according to the suit quoted by TMZ, the other driver was seriously injured in the accident and is suing Floyd, claiming that the man behind the wheel of his car was driving like a mad person. It turns out it was J’Leon Love, a boxer that is currently training at Mayweather gym in Las Vegas, holding the wheels in the moment of impact, as the champ was at the BET Awards at the time. They are both cited for unspecified damages.
