Russell Wilson just copped a new mansion, reportedly putting him back $6.7 million. And there's plenty of room for Ciara and Baby Future. Get the deets on his new pad and Floyd Mayweather’s official denial of illegal drug use inside….
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is putting that $87.6 million contract to use. The Super Bowl champ just copped a $6.7 million mansion with an incredible lakeside view. And we're sure Ciara is going to love it.
According to reports, the 7-bedroom 7-bathroom home is 10,740 sq. feet of gorgeousness that looks over Lake Washington in Bellevue, WA. You can check out a pic of his new home here. FYI—He & Bill Gates are now neighbors.
The 26-year-old NFLer's new pad also features its own private waterfront and dock and killer views of downtown Seattle and nearby mountain ranges. And, of course, it comes equipped with some luxury amenities such as a movie theater, five fire places, a wine cellar and more. Nice!
We can see Baby Future running all up and through there. Congrats Russell.
In sports news...
Floyd Mayweather is clapping back at rumors that said he violated boxing rules before he hit the ring to fight in the mega-fight against Manny Pacquiao back in May.
Suspicion of drug use was first reported by SB Nation where they said Floyd was administered an IV drip containing mixtures of saline and Vitamin C to combat dehydration the day before the "fight of the century." While the IV drip isn't against the rules, according to the site, it is against the organization's rules to administer them intravenously, since that can "dilute or mask the presence of another substance."
Pretty Boy Floyd took to his Twitter today to deny those claims, saying he didn’t commit any violations and that he is a clean fighter.
"I follow and have always followed the rules of Nevada and USADA, the gold standard of drug testing. Let's not forget that I was the one six years ago who insisted on elevating the level of drug testing for all my fights. As a result, there is more drug testing and awareness of its importance in the sport of boxing today than ever before. I am very proud to be a clean athlete and will continue to champion the cause.”
Well there you have it.
According to ESPN, the United States Anti-Doping Agency also disupted Floyd violating any rules saying the boxer applied for and was granted an exemption for the infusion.
The 38-year-old undefeated champ is set to return to the ring this Saturday for a match against Andre Berto. Good luck!
