“Physical infidelity is the signal, the notice given, that all fidelities are undermined.”—Katherine Anne Porter
Love is strange, but no less strange than reality.
The not-so-secret engagement between Floyd Mayweather and Shantel Jackson (aka “Miss Jackson”) is officially kaput.
Rumors that there was trouble have torn through the internet like a scissors through a pair of silk stockings.
The whispering started long ago when Mayweather was incarcerated for domestic battery. It was alleged at the time that Jackson and 50 Cent were having at it. But if I had a dollar for every allegation that passes for news these days, I’d be driving a Porsche instead of a tricycle.
The most recent accusations of infidelity came from Miss Jackson.
Since there are no flies on the walls of Big Boi Mansion, confirmation has come from the unlikeliest of places. When someone asked Miss Jackson on Twitter why she wasn’t at the Lakers’ game with her man, she tweeted, “cause he’s busy with sit fillers” (which suggests, among other things, that Jane Austen has nothing to worry about).
According to MediaTakeout.com, whose breezy style is worthy of emulation, “Shantel BROKE UP with Floyd a few months ago. Her reasoning is that she does not want to be in a marriage, unless Floyd is 100% faithful. Heck, she would prolly settle for 90% faithful . . . but Floyd offered NONE OF THAT. According to our snitch, Floyd wants to be allowed MULTIPLE SIDE CHICKS.”
If more proof were needed, and when is more proof not needed, Miss Jackson was seen wearing an elaborate bandage on her wrist, leading sleuths to conclude she had laser treatment to remove a boxing gloves tattoo that she once proudly displayed.
My opinion on the matter runs the gamut from lukewarm to indifferent, while others are up in arms.

jrg5333 seconded that emotion: “If he’s not gonna change, she needs to keep it moving. Once a dirty dog, always a dirty dog!”
Someone named pridemoney wisely observed, “Money can’t buy you love… But you sure can rent it!”
The appropriately named and perhaps on the dole MsSunshine79 wrote, “Well considering that 98% of men cheat, I’d marry him anyway. Better to be with a rich cheater than a broke one, that’s for sure.”
Ibramblebush, whose forte isn’t spelling, wrote, “I think be overcompensating for some ‘defecency’ he must have.”
Roxymanson, no relation to Marilyn or Charles, decided to turn things in its head when she wrote about Miss Jackson, “This is not a women. I mean it doesn’t matter but I thought I should just throw that out there. Good luck wit that champ. And he knows that.”
That comment opened up a can of worms. For example, mensah1 wrote, “them hollywood doctors are tearing people up”
BarbecueTee added, “her dimples are unusually dimply”
allihave2say said all she had to say. “She reneged on marriage because she is a he with a wooden puppets face. Gross! She knows that the blood test will reveal she’s really a man and the OBGYN will reveal she has no uterus. I need to see the last pap smear results from a genuine reputable doctor. This is a man!”
datBi$$h wanted to add her two cents: “Women get tired of Raglass nixxas everyday rich or broke she chucked dem deuces,” adding that “She can do better than this *** eyed fool. He has done nothing but humiliate her publicly over and over again. Even a white rich sponsor is better than Floyd.”
While on the subject of race, NYCblackMAN, who is no stranger to the Caps Lock, wrote, “BLACK MEN ARE THE DUMBEST RACE ON THE PLANET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW DUMB YOU GOTTA BE TO NOT GET A PRENUP???? LOL. THATS WHY BLACK MEN END UP ALONE, BROKE, USED WIT DEY KIDS HATING DEM FOR WHAT THEY DID TO DEY MOM. WAKE THE *** UP!!!!!! TRUTH!”
