Floyd Mayweather and T.I. brawled in Vegas over the weekend and as more details have emerged, we know more about what sparked their epic melee.

T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle reportedly caused the fight, and the winner of the bout has been sharing his feelings about Cottle with anyone who cares to listen.

The video above shows Floyd in a club shortly after the fight. Chris Brown's song "Loyal" is on the speakers and Mayweather uses the opportunity to get in a dig at T.I. and his wife.

We're guessing the rapper won't care for Mayweather's comments:

TI and Floyd Mayweather got into a pretty amazing melee this weekend in Las Vegas, with the rapper beefing and actually taking swings at the legendary boxer.

What would set him off to the point where he'd attempt that act of lunacy? This:

Tameka Cottle, Floyd Mayweather's Daughter

According to reports, the Floyd Mayweather-T.I. fight stemmed from the fact that the rapper is pissed about the fighter possibly getting close to his wife Tiny.

Tameka "Tiny" Cottle wasn't at the scene of the rumble, to our knowledge, but she was in Vegas, and hours before, she posted this picture on Instagram.

She is seen posing with Floyd's daughter, calling the young girl her "new boo."

T.I. was extremely upset about the photo, and others his spouse posted.

Feeling her pictures were inappropriate, he set out to confront Floyd in person about the situation that had made him feel so disrespected, and did he ever!

Take a look at the footage below if you missed it Sunday:

The Game and T.I. were involved in an intense standoff with LAPD after a fight at an L.A. club early this morning, along with "mutual acquaintances."

Those acquaintances were denied entrance at Supperclub, and began arguing furiously with security when one member of the posse threw a punch.

The punch is what you hear at the beginning of the TMZ fight video below:

Security for the club then descended on two men, beating them into submission and kicking one of them in the face while he was down on the ground.

Off-duty officers working at the club and LAPD responders were involved.

At that point, an angry T.I. and The Game stormed, mistakenly believing that the police had roughed up their friends and resulting in a heated standoff.

As tempers flared, it looked as if more violence was about to erupt.

Robin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. are suing Marvin Gaye's family and Bridgeport Records, insisting that their summer smash "Blurred Lines" is an original hit.

That's right ... the artist accused of ripping off an earlier work is the one suing, not the reverse, leading some to believe it's all part of a big PR effort.

The trio's omnipresent single has, in recent months, been accused of being a takeoff on Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up" and/or Funkadelic's "Sexy Ways."

There has not been a whole lot made of this, though, which makes the lawsuit by Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. over "multiple adverse claims" seem dubious.

Remember Tracy Morgan's homophobic rant earlier this year? No?

Well T.I. does, and he thinks it was hilarious! The rapper brought the scandal back to life when he told Vibe that Morgan's anti-gay jokes were the funniest of all time.

The comments have Morgan toeing a fine line between staying under the radar and distancing himself from T.I., who's reveled in "the funniest jokes I ever heard."

T.I. then ignited even more controversy. Not only does he find the anti-gay humor funny, he suggested that the backlash against Morgan's stand-up is un-American.

"They're like, 'If you have an opinion against us, we're gonna shut you down,'" T.I. told Vibe. "That's not American. If you're gay you should have the right to be gay in peace."

"If you're against it, you should also have the right to be against it in peace."

The rapper, who was recently freed from jail, later walked that last part back somewhat, saying that gays are not anti-American, but the actions of a select few are.

“I believe you have the right to do whatever you want to do as long as you're not hurting anyone. I was quoted correctly, but I was taken out of context,” he said.

He says the U.S.A. is an "institution built around allowing us to speak peacefully and respectfully in opposition of any point or any topic that comes up,” T.I. added.

He went on to add that he's not even against same-sex marriage, and that members of the African-American community acts in the same, oversensitive way as well.

Fair enough, but is what Morgan said, which was borderline hateful, really peaceful or respectful? And would T.I. react the same way to N-word-laden rants? Just curious.

Thoughts on T.I.'s comments?

T.I. was a free man for a full 24 hours this week, until the rapper was sent back to jail for getting a ride to his halfway house in a pimped out tour bus. Such a method of transportation is against the law, apparently.

How does wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle feel about this development? She says it's complete crap and here's why:

Prison officials saw the vehicle ahead of time and didn't say a word! Heck, they "walked him over, took pics and told him good luck in life," Tiny tells TMZ.

T.I. and Wife

"This is a bunch of bullsh-t," Cottle added. "They should have said something before he got on the bus... T.I. would have politely gotten into a van... T.I. is one of the strongest individuals I know... and they just trying to break him in more ways than one and it's not gonna work! 'Cause what God got for him, can't no man take that away... period!"

More like an ellipse, really. We likely haven't heard the end of this story.

Only a day after T.I.'s release from prison, the rapper is already back in federal custody, and according to reports, it's all over a luxury tour bus incident.

Say what now?

The Federal Bureau of Prisons and T.I.'s lawyer Steve Sadow confirm he's back in custody after traveling from a federal Arkansas prison to an Atlanta halfway house on a PIMP ASS TOUR BUS, a method of transportation that did not sit well with officials.

Happy T.I.

T.I. was sentenced in October to 11 months in prison for violating probation, but was let out early to finish the rest of his sentence (and film a reality show, which officials are reportedly having none of now) in a halfway house.

However, he allegedly misled prison officials into thinking he'd be taking a low-key mode of transportation from the prison to the halfway house.

Guess a tricked out tour bus doesn't qualify a low-key.

The L.A. County District Attorney has charged T.I.'s wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, for possessing ecstasy when the couple was busted on Sunset Strip last month.

Interestingly, the D.A. dropped charges against T.I., but it was a moot point since the star's probation was revoked as a result. Tiny will be charged, however.

If convicted, Tameka could face up to a year behind bars, which is convenient, since T.I. himself will likely spend 11 months in jail beginning in January 2011.

Maybe T.I. and Tiny can get some alone time in prison?

T.I. helped talk a jumper down from an Atlanta skyscraper this week, but he could not talk a federal judge into giving him another chance to stay out of prison.

Declaring T.I. "has had about the limit of second chances," U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. sentenced him to 11 months in prison for violating probation.

He will begin serving his time at a later date.

T.I. and Tiny after his (short-lived) release earlier this year.

"I screwed up," said T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., pleading for leniency. "I screwed up big time, and I'm sorry. I'm truly and sincerely sorry. I don't want and I don't need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life."

The judge was unmoved.

"The worst thing is this case was an experiment," Pannell said of T.I.'s early release this year. "You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment."

Was T.I. sippin' on sizzurp and trippin' balls on E when he and Tiny got popped by the po-po last night? That's the rumor. Continue for a translation.

T.I. and Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were arrested last night after cops pulled them over claim they found what appears to be ecstasy in his pimp ass ride.

T.I. and Tiny Cottle

T.I. AND TINY: They're in more than a tiny bit of trouble.

T.I. and Tiny were nailed on the Sunset Strip after making an illegal U-turn. Cops smelled marijuana, did a search and found a controlled substance.

The found substance was allegedly ecstasy, albeit a "small amount," sources report. The suspected pills of E are now being tested. But that's not all.
