Who is Anna Monroe?
Born August 27, 1992, Anna Monroe is an American entertainer, social media influencer, model, stripper, and entrepreneur from Las Vegas, Nevada. She is well-known as the lead dancer at the Las Vegas club Girl Collection, which is where she met star boxer Floyd Mayweather and hit the spotlight, according to Dreshare. Mayweather claimed he got into the business because “breasts, vaginas, alcohol and music will never go out of fashion,” reported The Sun.
Monroe, who is originally from England, also works for a number of magazine brands. Not much is known about Monroe's childhood. She went to a local private school in her hometown, Dreshare reports. The 5'4" blonde's father is a businessman and her mother is a homemaker. She was born in the United States but raised in England. There, she spent some years, before moving back to the United States at the age of 22 to kick off her career, The Sun reported.
"Floyd is getting back into boxing more and more - even though he has supposed to have retired. So everything is being put on hold for the time being," a source told The Sun. ''Anna has moved back into her old apartment. It's been a stressful time for her but she is being understanding and she knows he is the one who calls the shots in their relationship."
Floyd wanted to have a baby with her
Anna reportedly auditioned for Floyd's club but was turned down."She went for an interview for the job at Girl Collection but was declined, however as she was leaving she passed Floyd in the corridor," a family friend told The Sun.
"The next day the club called her and asked her to go back in and Floyd was there in person with a candle-lit dinner in the strip club to tell her she got the job and she was now the lead girl."
On January 14, 2021, a source claimed in a New York Post article that Mayweather wanted to have a baby with Monroe. According to a source, the pair had been dating for months and made their relationship official on New Year's Day, informing family and friends in the UK over FaceTime.
“They have been seeing each other on and off for a while, whenever Floyd decides,” a family friend told The Sun. “Now Floyd wants another child he only wants Anna to be the mother. They FaceTimed Anna’s family in England on New Year’s Day to tell them officially about their relationship. They are definitely dating now and have spoken about having a baby."
No lap dance in '20 years'
Since then, Anna has shared pictures of herself and Mayweather on vacation in Greece, posing outside the Acropolis. They've even shared photos of themselves in the same places at the same time in Paris, Abu Dhabi, Iceland's Blue Lagoon spa; Santorini and Amsterdam.
Mayweather was seen grinning and enjoying a lap dance from Monroe in a video that surfaced on online, despite maintaining that although he owns a strip club, he never partakes. “I haven’t had a lap dance in 20 years — just because you own a strip club, it doesn’t mean you have to get a lap dance,” he said in a TV interview with Jimmy Kimmel ahead of a fight, the Post reported. Floyd's representative, however, did not comment when asked about his relationship.
In January, reports surfaced that the 43-year-old Mayweather had proposed to Monroe, 29. Their rumored engagement came just weeks after their relationship was first revealed, when Monroe was seen flaunting a sizeable diamond ring worn on her wedding finger on her Instagram page.
But Monroe's family was wary of the relationship because of Mayweather's history with women, including his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris, whom he was accused of assaulting. "No one is taking the news well," a friend said to The Sun. "Everyone knows Floyd Mayweather beat his other girlfriend up," they added.
"Her dad is worried sick but Floyd just reels them in with money. Yeah when they have a child that child will be set up for life but Floyd will eventually get fed up with Anna and hurt her one way or another," they added. "Her father tried explaining that to her but she's so in love with him with can't see past it, it's almost like she's been brainwashed."
Mayweather was sentenced to two months in prison after being accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Harris, following which the two broke up. On March 9, 2020, Harris, the mother of Mayweather's three children was found dead at the wheel of her car in California after an apparent drug overdose. At the time of her death, Harris, who had met Mayweather when she was 16 and before he became famous, was working on a tell-all book about the beatings she received at the hands of the boxer.
A violent man
Harris, in an extract of her unpublished book, shared with The Sun during that time, described how Mayweather allegedly took her by the hair while she was still sleeping, dragged her around the room of her home in Las Vegas "like a rag doll" before punching her repeatedly in the head, screaming: "I’ll f**king kill you".
"Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs," Mayweather told reporters. "Yes, I did. So if they say that's domestic violence, then, you know what? I'm guilty. I'm guilty of restraining someone." Mayweather had been accused of assaulting another partner, Melissa Brim, the mother of his daughter Iyanna, in a Las Vegas shopping center in 2001, prior to his relationship with Harris.
