Floyd Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson is admitting she recorded phone calls with the fighter without him knowing, but says it was done to protect herself.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Jackson is responding to Mayweather’s lawsuit accusing her of illegally recording him during their relationship.
She admits recording Mayweather but says it was because she, “reasonably believed that she was obtaining evidence relating” to the crimes of extortion “and/or felonies involving violence against her and/or domestic violence.”
Jackson believes the law allowed her to record Mayweather because he was committing crimes. She says Mayweather’s own behavior and conduct were the catalyst for her taping him.
Jackson denies all allegations of wrongdoing in the suit. She is asking the judge to throw out his lawsuit and allow her case to move forward.
