Mayweather Sr. Sued For $20 Million By His Alleged Publicist

According to Forbes, veteran trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. - father and head coach of Floyd Mayweather Jr. among others - is being sued for $20 million.

A lawsuit was filed in Clark County District Court on October 2nd by Mayweather Sr's alleged publicist, Ann Barlow, for breach of contract.

The two of them had a dispute back in 2015, which prompted Mayweather Sr. to sue Barlow. He claiming that she tricked him into signing a contract to provide public relations consulting services - when he all he really wanted was assistance with setting up a nonprofit foundation for sarcoidosis and other common fighter ailments.


Mayweather Sr.’s lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed. Barlow claimed to the Las Vegas Review Journal that the trainer withdrew his lawsuit after admitting to hiring her.

Barlow claims that she sat down with Mayweather Sr. and discussed setting up the Floyd Joy Mayweather Foundation “to improve his public relations due to former arrests and negative publicity surrounding Floyd Mayweather…” and for a positive action relating to sarcoidosis and traumatic brain injury (TBI), according to the complaint.

Barlow allegedly arranged for a soft launch of the foundation at Carmine’s Restaurant in Caesar’s Palace, but Mayweather Sr. accused her of misusing funds and failed to appear at the event which was a “dismal failure,” per Barlow’s filing.

There was a PR contract submitted with Barlow’s complaint - with signatures by Barlow and Mayweather Sr. and it was notarized. The contract terms, related to compensation, call for a monthly “basic fee” and 10% of gross earnings derived from her firm.

In her legal suit, Barlow claims Mayweather Sr. failed to pay her, made false representations and failed to properly fund initial foundation expenses, further alleging that funds from a foundation bank account were properly used. Because of Mayweather Sr.'s allegations, she claims to have “not been able to obtain employment,” which fueled her decision to sue.

[QUOTE=megas30;18130975]He hired her to set up his foundation, but it seems there was a PR clause that she is trying to exploit. These dirty biches are leeches. He admitted to hiring her, but she is saying that he hired her…
