MONEY TEAM REPORT
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is being sentenced to ninety days in prison by a Las Vegas judge for his reduced domestic violence charge against his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris. Mayweather sentencing orders him to pay a $2,500 fine, attend a yearlong domestic violence class, and perform 100 hours of community service. Taking this plea also allows him to avoid felony charges.
Back in September 2010 Mayweather and Josie had altercations which resulted in Floyd receiving domestic violence charges and two counts of harassment. Floyd pleaded guilty to hitting Harris and twisting her arm, while their two kids (9 and 10) looked on and witnessed the brutality.
During the attack Floyd grabbed Josie hair and dragged her on the floor. He also allegedly threatened to kill Harris and her boyfriend or make her boyfriend “disappear,” according to the complaint. Their 10-year-old son ran from the house and jumped a back gate to fetch security. Mayweather had taken cellphones belonging to Harris and the two boys.
For this vicious attack the 34-year old Mayweather will be sentenced to 90 days in jail. He is due back in court on January 6th 2012 for sentencing.

Cee Lo isn’t slowing down in 2012.
According to the New York Times, the singer/rapper, who recently appeared as a judge on NBC‘s The Voice talent show, is set to star in his own reality show titled Cee Lo Takes the U.K. next year. The Mark Burnett-helmed program will be based on his old group, the Goodie Mob, and will find them recording a reunion album in London while they assimilate to the culture.
As if that weren’t enough, Cee is also slated to appear in his very own Las Vegas show in 2012 as well. Following in the footsteps of Celine Dion and Prince, Cee Lo will star in Loberace, a theatrical show to be presented at Planet Hollywood.
“There’s security in being a brand; there’s certainty in being a brand,” Cee Lo told the paper about his business. “McDonald’s is a brand. And when you get your fix for a Big Mac, where do you go? There’s only one place you can go for a Big Mac, and that’s big McDonald’s. But my brand has a broader horizon, because my brand is, ‘Whatever you think you want, I just may be able to give it to you.’ ” —Gina Montana
