Report: Floyd Mayweather allegedly kidnapped and beat two former employees over missing jewelry

Handout

TMZ is reporting that Floyd Mayweather had two former employees beaten after jewelry went missing. The men required hospitalization and had broken arms and legs following the alleged attack.

Floyd Mayweather could be headed into yet another legal battle. At least, that's the case if a recent report by celebrity gossip site TMZ is proven correct.

TMZ is reporting that Mayweather had two former employees brought to a remote location after jewelry went missing and proceeded to attack them with weapons:

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports ... the two men had been hired to work on Floyd's Vegas homes ... but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger at them.

We're told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location.

When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them -- along with a number of his "people" --  who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs.

Our sources say the attack was so brutal the men could have easily died.  Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days.

There's at least some reason to be suspicious of the motives of the alleged victims. These men appear to have lawyered up prior to going to the police. That likely means they'll be looking to sue Mayweather, but not reporting a violent beating that required hospitalization is odd, to say the least.

Mayweather does have a history of violent encounters. He has had multiple issues with violence against women and has also picked up a battery charge for attacking a bouncer.

He will meet Marcos Maidana on May 3 unless this situation leads to a change in plans.

Showtime had not responded to a request for comment on what this situation could mean for the fight as of press time.
