A nice pair of new kicks can make anyone — man or woman — feel good about their day. Nine pairs of new shoes that cost a total of $4,600? Well, I can’t say that should make you feel nine times as good. It would, however, help you remember the words to “Waterfalls,” apparently.
Yes, the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL reports that Rozonda Thomas (better known as “Chilli” from TLC, and not to be confused with the crazy and now deceased member of the group who burned down Andre Rison’s House, though ironically that was also about shoes) went on a shoe-buying spree with Floyd Mayweather Jr. to the tune of $4,600.
“Sightings … Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr., on a shoe-buying spree Wednesday for gal pal Rozonda Thomas, best known as “Chilli” of the R&B group TLC. Mayweather bought her nine pairs of shoes at the Giuseppe Zanotti boutique inside the Forum Shops at Caesars. The tab came to $4,600.”
Gal pal? Five grand in footwear for a “gal pal?” And I thought Eliot Spitzer was overpaying.
