Location: Luxembourg

Floyd Mayweather Just Paid $26M Cash for this Beverly Hills Mansion

Two things are for certain, Floyd “Money” Mayweather loves to make headlines, and it’s been a great year for the boxer. He won the much-hyped “one-of-a-kind superfight” against UFC champ Conor McGregor last month, the estimated $300+ million in winnings from which enabled him to do good (purportedly one of several athletes who promised to donate millions to Hurricane Harvey relief in Houston) and #treatyoself with luxurious new digs.

Alice, My Friend Wants to Stay at My House…In My Bed…With his Girlfriend — Ask Alice: Advice for Life at Home

Hi Alice,

I have a friend, who was my flatmate, but now lives with his family. His girlfriend lives in a different city and now they want to meet up with each other and stay over at my apartment in my room, asking me to sleep on the couch outside for a night. He’s a good friend of mine, but I do not want him to stay in my apartment and in my bed with his girlfriend. How can I say no in a way that does not make him feel bad?

Thanks,

Hesitant Host
