*Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s baby mama Josie Harris tells TMZ she is not happy with the one-of-a-kind dress she paid top dollar for their 10-year-old daughter to wear at Dad’s fight – because the exact same design ended up on the boxer’s on-and-off again side piece.
Harris said she paid $795 to “Project Runway” designer Michael Costello for a special dress to be worn by her daughter Jirah at the Canelo fight in Las Vegas. Josie says the dress came out great — but when they showed up to the fight, she noticed Floyd’s girlfriend Shantel Jackson wearing the same exact dress (see photo). Both daughter and girlfriend sat ringside.

Josie tells TMZ, “It’s an unspoken rule and a cardinal sin for a ‘real designer’ to dress clients alike going to the same major event … Tacky, tacky, tacky.”
Josie also took issue with Shantel, saying, “She is a total gold digger … She conveniently came back around two days before Floyd got his $41.5 million check.”
As for the designer, Costello says he will not be giving anyone a refund. “No exclusivity was promised regarding the dress,” he told TMZ. “If you want exclusivity, you need to pay more.”
Costello says his people told Jackson that Floyd’s daughter would be wearing the same dress and she didn’t care.
*Boxer Floyd Mayweather made an incredible point recently about being a man.
Before we share his words of wisdom, we do realize that he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed and hasn’t demonstrated the utmost respect for women.
But as the good book says, out of the ass’s mouth…
In a Showtime documentary, “30 Days in May,” the boxer explains that men should only have as many cars as they can handle women.
Some turned their noses up and became upset because he basically compared women to cars.
“Even though you can’t drive ten cars at one time, you got people that got ten cars. So, you’re able to keep maintenance on ten cars. So, I feel that as far as it comes to females, that same thing should apply. If you’re able to take care of 20, then you should have 20.”
Yeah, that’s a bit much homie.
But his woman didn’t seem to mind, at least in the public arena. He’s about to get hitched… eventually, to Shantel Jackson.
“I’m not the jealous type,” she recently said. “I know who I am and I know where I stand. I just feel like when you have that type of relationship where you can be open and honest, I just think it helps the trust and it helps keep things new and fresh. So, it doesn’t bother me and it’s never bothered me. I just think when you let a man be himelf, he will respect you that much to not disrespect you.”
*Although he’s currently incarcerated, boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. ensured that his fiance Shantel Jackson, had a fantastic birthday.
She celebrated with girlfriends and rapper 50 Cent, dining at N9ne Steakhouse at the Palms, along with a private birthday party.
Lacing her with gifts, we hear she had a three-tiered cake (with a photo of her and Mayweather), a Balenciaga alligator bag (worth $30,000), Hines Couture shoes, jewelry and Balenciaga cake.
