Devion Cromwell is the son of television star and businesswoman Melissa Brim and the adopted son of a professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather.

Did Mayweather strangle his son during an argument?

Devion Cromwell is the son of Floyd's former girlfriend, Melissa Brim. Melissa has been known for being the off-and-on partner in Floyd's life. 

Since Floyd raised him but never officially adopted him, he is referred to as Floyd's adopted son. 

After Floyd arrived suddenly at Melissa's home on Halloween in 2014, he found Devion with some friends hanging around the house. 

Floyd ordered everyone out of the house and went on to argue with an angry Devion. The young boy shouted as the pair argued: 

"You're not my dad. 

Then Floyd, in all anger, choked him by grabbing him on the neck. 

After the incident, he cooperated with the police and explained whatever went down. His friends were also witnesses. 

However, Devion did not continue to pursue the matter because of his mother and Floyd's relationship.

Floyd was also the significant financial support uplifting Melissa and his life. The 19-year-old said, 

"He controls our entire family through fear and money. It's only a matter of time before it happens again".

The two have stopped talking after the incident and have not reconciled yet.

The luxurious life 

Cromwell's mother, Melissa, has been in a complicated relationship with the boxer for decades now. The two were in a relationship during the early years of Floyd's career

Melissa allegedly has two children, one from her previous relationship. Her first son is Devion Cromwell, but his father's information has not been revealed. 

Later on, Melissa gave birth to daughter Iyanna Mayweather with Floyd.

Floyd Mayweather has taken the responsibility to provide for his children. He pays the mother of his children a certain amount to live their lives. 

It seems as though the family are living separately but have a comfortable lifestyle.

Relationship, girlfriend, affairs

Cromwell is quite private about his personal life. He posts a lot of content with his family and friends. 

He recently posted a video celebrating his father's 40th birthday. Cornwell was throwing confetti with his friends in the video.

However, there is no information about him having a girlfriend. He has many friends, but his romantic life has not been revealed.

Dangerous childhood 

His father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., was involved in d*ug sales when Floyd Mayweather was a small, one-year-old infant. 

He got into a fight with one of the other dealers, so the other dealer turned up at the door, pointing a pistol at the head of Floyd Sr. 

Baby Floyd Jr. was picked up by him and used him as a shield to protect him from being fired. 

His mother was also a drug abuser, and his aunt died from AIDS.

Floyd used to receive advice from his arrested brother 

While in prison, when Floyd Jr. was out drinking all the time and avoiding boxing practice, Floyd's brother would let him know. 

He replied directly from jail with phone calls, telling his son that if he doesn't take boxing seriously, there might not be any other choice for his future besides selling drugs. 

Floyd Jr., determined not to end up like his dad, obviously took this advice to heart.

Being friends with Mike Tyson 

He is friends with Mike Tyson. At the same gym, they used to practice together. 

Mayweather praises Tyson since he would drive up in a Rolls-Royce and wear diamond watches. Tyson was always his inspiration to succeed. 

It only motivated Mayweather to work harder after seeing how wealthy a boxer can become.

Mayweather's rage and violence against women

Floyd doesn't keep his fights inside the ring all the time. He was arrested more than once for a crime in 2002. In five of those arrests, abuse against women was involved. He answered when asked about his popularity, 

"You've got to have a villain, and they're always going to make me a villain. I'm used to it - it makes me work harder and makes me fight harder.  

He says he has anger issues, and it pushes him to work harder

Net worth and earnings

His net worth and occupation have not been revealed yet. Cornwell is the adopted son. Floyd is still the highest-paid athlete in the world.

Floyd's worth is about $1 billion US dollars. But like most athletes, his worth keeps fluctuating. His earnings and period are calculated below:

Annually $450 million
