Floyd Mayweather’s Ostentatious Shopping Spree for his Boo-of-the-Moment…

 

 

floyd-mayweather-bet-awards-jewelry-photos-03-480wAccording to TMZ, Floyd Mayweather took his girlfriend on a shopping spree so that she could get cute for the BET Awards. While I find the sentiment slightly romantic, I think the ostentatious display is quite ridiculous! Floyd, we all know you are a multimillionaire, so how about displaying your wealth & money power by posting the various charities you support, the hungry children you feed, or the needy people that could possibly use your support? By no means am I jealous, just slightly perturbed. Why does the public need to know what you spent on your Boo-of-the-Moment?According to TMZ, Floyd Mayweather took his girlfriend on a   so that she could get cute for the BET Awards. While I find the sentiment slightly romantic, I think the ostentatious display is quite ridiculous!

By no means am I jealous, just slightly perturbed. Why does the public need to know what you spent on your Boo-of-the-Moment?

In 2011 The Root did some digging into Floyd’s charitable donations & this is what they found: “…After examining the foundation’s 990s (no one at the foundation would respond to the Root’s questions)… In 2009, the foundation distributed all of $3,564 in donations.  The foundation’s 2008 990 showed expenditures of “$573,790, or 62.5 percent, [that] went to undisclosed ‘professional fees and other payments to independent contractors’; $284,653…to other expenses; $55,650 to pay three employees; and the rest to smaller expenses. The ‘other expenses’ included $100,000 for…[a] two-day, Mayweather-sponsored Superfest fundraiser; $58,494 for the FMJF dinner; and $10,000 for Thanksgiving turkeys.”

Considering Mayweather has a net worth of $260 million, I find these donations minuscule. But hey, it’s not my money. I am just one of the many privileged people that have the benefit of looking at jewelry receipts and those atrocious shoes he purchased. Not impressed in the least. Floyd you can do better! I believe in you man…
