The bizarre world of Floyd Mayweather, by his right-hand woman

The cash-rich and often bizarre world of boxer Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr. is today exposed by his former executive assistant.

Tasha Robinson-White worked for Mayweather, 37, for 12 years operating within his inner circle as the boxer’s ‘right hand’ woman – and has now written a tell-all book about her extraordinary career.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online she reveals how she witnessed ‘Pretty Boy’ Floyd’s extraordinary rise from a cocky young sportsman to undefeated boxing champion of the world in five different weight classes.

In a sensational account of the sportsman’s personal life Tasha, 42, reveals how Mayweather became deeply consumed by the trappings of wealth; lost $15 million after being duped by a conman; surrounded himself with an entourage of paid strippers and hangers on; and gave cash and presents to strangers.

She also exposes a vulnerable side to the arrogant champ who at his lowest point had talked about his own funeral after a domestic dispute with the mother of his children.

Tasha, whose book Right Hand To The Champ is published this week, was by Mayweather’s side almost every day, fitting in around his unusual routine.

When the fighter was not in training he would sleep from 6am until 3pm each day before spending two hours dressing and grooming himself.

He selected what designer outfit to wear from his vast walk-in wardrobe, which included a separate room for his furs and a room for his leathers.

Then at 4.55pm he and Tasha would drive in separate cars to see his personal banker at a Bank of America branch near his Las Vegas home where he would withdraw, on average, a staggering $100,000 in cash.

‘He didn’t like credit cards,’ explains Tasha. ‘So he always wanted large amounts of cash with him at all times.

‘He kept it in a large duffel bag which his staff called the ‘pregnant duffel’ because it was always bulging with money.’

Two burly security guards follow Mayweather wherever he goes to keep him and the cash safe.

Tasha said the boxer lived and breathed money and became more and more ‘flashy and flamboyant’.

He even made his friends sit in the back of his car so he could ride with the duffel bag up front.

Tasha says he blew his money during extravagant shopping sprees, on expensive fine dining and lavish nights out.

He also liked to splash out on new cars, collecting luxury vehicles like ‘toy cars’.

‘I remember him buying six or seven cars in one day,’ recalls Tasha.

‘Then he’d fly us around on private jets. I’ve seen him drop $1-2million on pieces of jewelry, it got crazier and crazier,’ said Tasha.
‘When he bought me my Mercedes the dealer told me that that was the 33rd Mercedes Benz Floyd had bought from them.’

‘Money’ Mayweather – who can earn $15,000 a second during some of his big pay-per view fights and is said to be worth $85million – once tossed $100,000 in cash around like it was confetti at a strip club.

In 2008 he hired out a recently closed strip club in Las Vegas to host a wild ‘strip-off’ contest to impress his close friend, hip hop artist T.I.

He arranged for dozens of professional strippers to be flown in from around America to compete in the event as part of one of his infamous ‘Mayweather weekends’.

The girls were battling to win a $100,000 cash prize but as the night wore on an excited Mayweather decided everyone should come out a winner.

Tasha, who watched on in astonishment, recalls: ‘He went up on to the balcony and tossed wads of cash out on to the floor below, $10-$20,000 a time, there were strippers on their hands and knees picking $100 bills, it was crazy.’

Later Mayweather hosted an after-party at his Vegas mansion and during the wild night the boxer threw more cash into his swimming pool.

He and his pals laughed as several strippers dived in to the retrieve the cash from the bottom.

Tasha said Mayweather’s favorite hobby was shopping, regularly visiting high-end department stores in Vegas, splurging on designer clothes and jewelry.

He would spend more than $35,000 on clothes and shoes at a time, sometimes every day.

But she says his generosity bordered on the ridiculous when he also insisted on buying all his staff clothes as well, including the bodyguards.

She said: ‘Floyd would buy $1,000 jackets, $300 jeans, dozens of shirts but then he’d buy stuff for everyone with him, which ever girls he was with, me, the body-guards.

‘He’d even stop strangers in the store and buy them clothes or take care of their tab at the counter, it was crazy spending.’
