Rapper T.I. and boxer FLOYD MAYWEATHER got into a scuffle early Sunday morning at a Fatburger on the Las Vegas Strip that was caught on video. Mayweather was eating there when T.I. walked in and started beefing and allegedly swung at Mayweather, before their bodyguards stepped in and separated them and they left the scene before police arrived. One restaurant employee received a minor injury, but they wouldn't cooperate with police. The fight apparently started because T.I. thought Mayweather was putting the moves on his wife, Tiny. However, Mayweather says that's not the case and at one point he was heard telling T.I. to "control your bitch." Mayweather later apologized to Tiny for calling her the B-word and is telling friends he's shocked about the whole thing because he thought they were all friends. (See here-preview)

They took those items along with similar objects from their friends until they gathered enough to start the museum. Items in the traveling museum range from lingerie and wedding dresses to plastic limbs and fake breasts. Plaques describe the objects and their owners and they also accept items from the brokenhearted around the world.
