Broner apologises for foul-mouthed rant at Jay-Z and Rihanna after turning down £26m contract offer
- Jay-Z offered Adrien Broner a contract worth £5.2m a year for five years
- Broner said he was offended by the offer and launched an attack at Jay-Z
- He said Jay-Z should ‘suck his d***’ and then insulted Rihanna
- Broner has now come out to apologise for his rant at the pair
Controversial boxer Adrien Broner has issued a grovelling apology to rapper Jay-Z and singer Rihanna after he launched a scathing attack on the pair last week.
Jay-Z, real name Shawn Corey Carter, and his management company Roc Nation Sports, offered Broner a contract worth $8million (£5.2m) a year for five years but the fighter turned it down after being ‘offended’ by the deal.
In a stunning statement on Facebook, Broner claimed that Jay-Z could ‘s*** his d***’, before continuing his attack during an interview with TMZ Sports.

When asked if he had considered accepting the offer to enable him to get ‘one degree closer’ to singer Rihanna – who is also signed to Jay-Z’s label – Broner claimed: ‘F*** Rihanna, she’s only good for p***y.’
But the boxer, who has a record of 29 wins to one loss, has since backtracked on his claims, apologising to both parties 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,’ Broner said. ‘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.’
