Nelly Breaks His Silence On Floyd Mayweather 'Beef' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Since displaying their affection for each other on Instagram in recent months, Nelly and his latest flame, Shantel "Miss Jackson" Jackson have drawn a fair amount of attention from fans and admirers.

One person who paid particular attention to the love birds is Jackson’s ex-fiancé, Floyd Mayweather Jr., who apparently had unfinished business with the aspiring actress. In early May, Mayweather admitted to posting a photo of an ultrasound, accusing Jackson of allegedly having an “abortion” while she was pregnant with his twins.

During a recent appearance on ESPN’s “First Take,” Nelly voiced his opinion on Mayweather’s actions.

"I don't have a beef with Floyd Mayweather. For me, for the most part, I think the whole thing is misunderstood,” the rapper admitted. “I try to understand where he's coming from which is a little hard to do. He's one of those people who don't like the word ‘No’ said to him. And if anybody does that, it gets under his skin a little bit. I don't know. It's kind of hard talking to someone who hasn't graduated high school."

Check out more of Nelly’s reaction in the clip above.
