Shantel Jackson has filed a lawsuit against former fiance Floyd Mayweather Jr, alleging he abused her during their relationship.
With her attorney Gloria Allred by her side, Shantel held a news conference and read a prepared statement.
"I loved Floyd deeply, but he continued to disappoint and intentionally hurt me," Shantel said. "I have been embarrassed and humiliated more than I could ever imagine by Floyd, who I once called my best friend and fiancee. I have tried everything I could. I have given Floyd every opportunity to do the right thing. Unfortunately, he has refused every opportunity to make things right. It is with a heavy heart that I finally realized that the only way to set the record straight, and to achieve justice for what he has done to me is through filing of this lawsuit.
