Floyd Mayweather believes his ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson recorded “confidential” conversations during their relationship without his permission, and he plans to use it against her in court.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Mayweather is requesting for a judge to amend a pending lawsuit against Miss Jackson for recording.
Apparently, the boxer found out about the illegally recorded telephone conversations and face to face meetings in February, and he is seeking unspecified damages, as well as $5,000 for each time she allegedly recorded him without his consent.
“Jackson intentionally used one or more recording devices to surreptitiously record conversations with Mayweather including telephonic conversations and conversations in the presence of one another without Mayweather’s knowledge or consent,” he stated in documents.
“At least some of Jackson’s surreptitious tapings were recorded while Mayweather and Jackson were engaged to be married but Jackson, unbeknownst to Mayweather, was attempting to construct a lawsuit against Mayweather should she decide she preferred its potential to a potential marriage,” Mayweather added.
However, Jackson believes her recordings were legal. She reportedly recorded their conversations in an attempt to prove she was being extorted.
The former couple’s ongoing legal battle dates back to 2014. Jackson tried to sue Mayweather for a number of charges, including assault, defamation, and invasion of privacy and he countersued, accusing her of stealing his credit cards and money.
After their public breakup, Jackson began a new relationship with Nelly.
While both Jackson and Mayweather have moved on, the case is “still pending with both sides preparing for trial.” The Blast reports that the judge has not made a decision in Mayweather’s request to amend his lawsuit.
