Rumors of Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s financial instability have resurfaced and American rapper Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson III weighed in on the matter on social media.

The reports were first made by WBA lightweight champion Gervonta Davis with a series of posts on X. After years of a cordial relationship, tension grew between Davis and Mayweather, causing a feud between them. Davis tweeted that 'they got Floyd a** for real' and he needed to "call 50" to "get him home."

The champion did not mention how or why he believed Mayweather was dealing with financial struggles or why he called for 50 Cent to aid the retired boxer. Regardless, Davis' message worked and prompted a response.

The rapper took screenshots of Davis' April 26 tweets and provided his take on the matter on Instagram.

Jackson wrote:

"Oh nah this s*** is real @gervontaa. Would not say no s*** like that if it wasn't official. Me and champ be beefing but he my brother. I got some money if he need it!"

Davis did not mention who "they" were in his tweets but also offered to send Mayweather money despite their differences.

Since the rumors sparked, Mayweather has not publicly addressed the matter to either confirm or deny his financial situation.

50 Cent's history in MMA with Bellator

As one of the biggest American celebrities who supports and promotes MMA, 50 Cent has a brief history in the fight business with a previous partnership with Bellator.

Back in 2018, 50 Cent inked a deal with the promotion based around his clothing brand. The rapper later tweeted a message to then-UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, attempting to lure the Dagestani to fight for "his" promotion following the aftermath of UFC 229.

In his post, 50 Cent offered $2 million to 'The Eagle' to leave the UFC.

Nurmagomedov, of course, would iron the situation out with Dana White and the UFC to remain with the world's premiere MMA organization until his retirement in 2020.
