Floyd Mayweather is being sued for allegedly scamming a New York jeweler.
In newly obtained court documents, the pro-boxer is facing a $400,000 lawsuit from Eric & Co. Trading Company in federal court. According to the plaintiff, Floyd Mayweather allegedly used his ‘fame’ and ‘good standing,’ with the company to receive $389,000 worth of merchandise, including several gold Cartier diamond bracelets, a $34,000 diamond necklace, $12,000 “iced out choker” and three large white gold “TMT pieces,” a $20,000 diamond/emerald cut butterfly necklace with a diamond tennis necklace, and a $42 diamond eternity ring.
