Only last week it emerged that Floyd Mayweather had began dating former TOWIE star, Abi Clarke. Now – it has been claimed she has been the subject of a series of attacks.
It has been reported that Abi has suffered abuse in the street and even had a brick thrown through her home window with a note attached reading: ‘Fuck the Mayweathers’, reports the Daily Star.
Those that confronted her in the street allegedly said: ‘You plastic slag… You’re loose. Mayweather’s gonna die’.
Shockingly – the people targeting Abi are reportedly Conor McGregor fans who dislike her simply because she is dating Floyd in the run-up to McGregor’s 500 million dollar bout against the American next month.
A source close to the friend told the Daily Star:
It has been a real-life nightmare for Abi. The stuff she has had to deal with has been tough to take.
She is genuinely worried about her safety. There are concerns that the worst could happen if things get out of control.
Another friend explained:
It was horrific. Abi was understandably shaken by what happened. When neighbours went round to offer support she was having a panic attack.
It had all come out of nowhere and she didn’t know what to make of it. She was sobbing and shaking.
Despite the trauma, Abi hasn’t got the police involved in the incidents as she believes it isn’t worth it.
