Floyd Mayweather might have a rematch on his mind — but it isn’t with Conor McGregor.
Keyshia Cole, who’s been linked to Mayweather over the past year or so, performed a 35-minute concert at Philadelphia City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson’s Community Appreciation Day in the City of Brotherly Love on Saturday afternoon, then hightailed it to Las Vegas on a private jet, we’re told.
That’s where she met up with the 50-0 pugilist, who fought what will likely be his last professional fight in Sin City that evening.
She even posted an Instagram photo from his locker room, where Mayweather didn’t even have time to change out of his boxing trunks.
Apparently Cole couldn’t wait to get to Vegas, and “drove (everyone) crazy” in Philly, where, we’re told, she did everything she could to reschedule her show, before eventually getting the performance time changed from 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. so that she could make it to the desert for fight night. She then got a police escort to the airport, according to our sources, who said she was wearing “head-to-toe Chanel” and carrying a matching bag. Cole is in the process of divorcing former NBA player Daniel (Boobie) Gibson, with whom she appears on the reality-TV show “Love & Hip Hop.”
Gibson told VH1 last week that he regretted his relationship with Cole didn’t work out.
“I take full responsibility for our marriage not working,” he said. The pair split in 2014 after three years of marriage.
Boxing seems to be in Cole’s blood, though she didn’t discover that until later in life. The 35-year-old singer met her biological father, Virgil Hunter — a longtime boxing trainer — for the first time in May 2106. That’s also when “Money” Mayweather bought Cole a black Mercedes-Benz, which will be waiting for her when she gets back to Los Angeles. And it may be time for an upgrade.
Mayweather, 40, stands to take home up to $ 250 million for Saturday’s win in Vegas once the receipts are counted, according to some reports.
The night after his big fight, Mayweather came back ready to compete again. He hosted the Candlelighters Charity Celebrity Basketball Game presented by TMT at UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center on Sunday, where musicians Chris Brown and Tank played alongside Golden State Warriors newcomer Nick Young and boxer Adrien Broner. NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson was also in the house.
