Floyd Mayweather Jr. could be charged with attempted murder, mayhem and kidnapping because he allegedly was the mastermind behind a brutal attack on two of his employees. This story was reported by TMZ on March 12, and according to their report, Floyd hired two men to work in his home in Las Vegas. The employees were accused of stealing jewelry from the boxer's property, which lead to the alleged beating.

However, a report from NY Daily News on March 14 says that there is no truth behind the story. The report reads: "Despite a TMZ report alleging that boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. organized the beat-down of some underlings who stole jewelry from his home, the Las Vegas Metro Police Department are not currently investigating the incident, which at this point is nothing more than a rumor."

The site claims that they spoke with Laura Meltzer, a public information officer for the Las Vegas police and she gave the following statement during a phone interview:

“So I’ve been trying to put this rumor to rest all week. We’ve had a variety of reports that have come out stating this event occurred. We have not had a victim come forward and make a report like what is being alleged. So if this event occurred, it’s something where the victim has not come forward to the police to make an official complaint.”
