Adrien Broner Apologizes to Jay Z and Rihanna

Outlandish boxer says he was wrong for dissing Hov and RiRi.

Published January 12, 2015

Just a few days after rejecting Roc Nation Sports' five-year, $40 million offer to him and proceeding to diss Jay Z and Rihanna last week, boxer Adrien Broner is saying he's sorry. 

On Sunday, Broner sent a video of himself apologizing to Hov and RiRi to TMZ

"One of the main reasons why I was wrong was you never invite another man to another man’s private parts. That’s just ridiculous," Broner said in the video. "I was caught up in the moment. I just want to apologize to Jay for that. I’m a man at the end of the day and I’m wrong and I can admit when I’m wrong. I’m definitely wrong for handling the situation like that. I never should have said forget Rihanna. I said it in a more explicit way.

“I just want to say I’m wrong to the public," he added. "I’m sorry and if Jay want to talk to me, you can get in touch with me and holler at me and we’ll talk about it. I just had to get it off my chest as a man because my big homie called me and told me I was wrong. It was only right that I kept it 100."

Broner's apology came days after he took Hov's five-year, $40 million offer to him as an insult, taking to Twitter to say: "What the f--- is 40 million for 5 years ha. Somebody go tell JAYZ to s--- my d--- with an elephant tongue. WE GOOOOOD!!!!!" He also said, "Man, f--- Rihanna."
