Floyd Mayweather Suing Wine Bar For Falsely Promoting Him And Justin Bieber

February 8, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

TMZ reports that Floyd Mayweather is suing a New Orleans wine bar that used Mayweather and Justin Bieber to trick Super Bowl fans in for a pre-game party.

Mayweather claims The Wine Bistro heavily advertised that Mayweather and The Money Team would be hosting the February 1 event. The Money Team is a nickname of Mayweather’s posse that includes Justin Bieber, Lil’ Kim, 50 Cent and Miss Jackson.

Mayweather in the lawsuit calls himself “the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and one of the greatest technical fighters of all time” and said he makes around $100,000 for a club appearance.

He said he never agreed to appear at The Wine Bistro, nor did any of the Money Team, but the bar advertised them on Facebook, Youtube and on flyers. Mayweather is upset that the bar made money off of his name and is worried his fans will be upset that he didn’t show up. He wants money and he wants the bar to stop using his name.
