Quite the storm brewing between Floyd Mayweather, Jr., and the C.J. 'Quietstorm' Watson?

I got your back, bro! - USA TODAY Sports

Well this is an interesting bit of news.

According to a newly revealed police report, reported by Martin Rogers of Yahoo! Sports, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Jr., was involved in a spat with his "former long-term partner," Josie Harris, in which he punched her in front of their kids. So, where do the Nets fit in? Great question.

The report shows that the fight started over the discovery of a text message between Ms. Harris and now Brooklyn Nets guard C.J. Watson. And now we may know something more about the source of the feud between Watson and Nate Robinson, who it turns out is a friend and admirer of Mayweather. The things you find out on the Internet!

From Rogers:

The altercation happened when Mayweather returned to Harris' property at 5 a.m. on September 9. Police had already been summoned following a verbal dispute hours earlier, but Mayweather came back. Harris says she was asleep on the living room couch when she woke up to Mayweather, holding her cell phone, yelling at her about text messages from NBA guard C.J. Watson.

Mayweather and Harris were no longer together; the boxer had by then installed Jackson in his home and as his main love interest. But, according to Harris, it was not acceptable to Mayweather for her to see other men while living in a house he owned.

Mayweather then went on to say, according to Harris, that he was going to kill her and also kill Watson.

It goes on:

"All I heard is, 'Who is C.J. Watson, C.J. Watson the basketball player?' " Harris says. "From there it was just … bad. I was powerless. He was holding me down. I couldn't fight back. The kids were screaming and crying, 'You're hurting my Mom.' "

At one point, Mayweather yelled, "I'm going to kill you and the man you are messing around with," Harris told police. "I'm going to have you both disappear."

Yikes. There's a new documentary coming out that attempts to "prove" that Harris embellished the incident. One thing is clear, however, Watson apparently was seeing Ms. Harris and, clearly, doesn't have a fan in Mayweather.

So, uh, good luck with that, C.J.

[Note: This event happened in 2010, but the story is just out Wednesday. The year was not included in the quote I pulled; The headline was also written in jest -- Get it? Quite the storm... Quietstorm?; And, there are a million other details in this case, we are a Nets website, so we'll leave that up to you to read Mr. Rogers report; Um, what else? I think that clears it all up... My apologies for those who were confused or upset by the posting of this story. Oh, and 'Go Nets!']
