Boxer Adrien Broner has apologised to both Jay-Z and Rihanna for the foul-mouthed interview that he gave in which he attacked the pair.
Broner was offered an $8m-per-year deal for five years to sign with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, but he turned it down and insisted that he was offended by the offer.
However, he wasn’t finished there as he launched a foul-mouthed rant at the rapper and entrepreneur in an interview with TMZ Sports.
Broner claimed that he could “s*** his d***” before aiming his fury at Rihanna as he was asked whether or not he was tempted to sign the deal in order to get “one degree closer” to the singer.
“F*** Rihanna, she’s only good for p****,” the controversial boxer added.
However, the American star (29-1) has since backtracked and apologised for his comments in a second interview with TMZ.
“I’ve gotta address something because I’m getting a lot of feedback from this interview I did with TMZ,” he began.
“I was going to let it ride out and say ‘Forget the haters’, but my big homie called me, somebody that I respect, and he made me understand why I was wrong.
“You never invite another man to another man’s private parts. That’s just ridiculous.
“I was caught up in the moment, and I want to apologise to Jay for that. I’m a man at the end of the day. I’m wrong and I can admit when I’m wrong.
“I never should have said “Forget Rihanna”… I said it in a more explicit way. I’m wrong, I’m sorry. If Jay wants to talk to me, you can get in touch with me and we can talk about it.”
It remains to be seen whether or not Jay-Z forgives and forgets and the pair perhaps continue negotiations over joining the promotional company, but it likely that the rapper will not be interested in pursuing him further after he announced a deal with super-middleweight king Andre Ward last week.
