PLAYERS: Justin Bieber
Floyd Mayweather is ticked off that a New Orleans wine bar took the liberty of using the boxer and Justin Bieber to attract fans and promote a pre-Super Bowl party without agreeing to appear. According to a federal lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — Mayweather claims The Wine Bistro heavily advertised that Floyd and The Money team would be hosting the February 1 bash.  The Money team is  a nickname for Mayweather's posse — which includes Bieber, Lil' Kim, 50 Cent and Miss Jackson. Floyd — who in the lawsuit calls himself "the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and one of the greatest technical fighters of all time" — claims he makes upwards of $100,000 for a club appearance, reports TMZ. Mayweather says he — nor The Money Team — never agreed to appear at The Wine Bistro.  The welterweight champion is steaming that the bar used him on their Facebook, YouTube and other advertisements and is worried his fans will feel duped because he was a no-show. From the video advertisement, The Wine Bistro looks like the rowdiest Chardonnay-sipping fern-bar in the world. Well after all ... it is New Orleans.
