Nothing about Floyd 'Money' Mayweather's spending habits should surprise you anymore, but we can't help but ignore this one. Leading up to his fight against Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather is paying his personal chef, Chef Q, $1,000 for every meal she prepares him.
If we're talking four meals a day, we're talking hundreds of thousands of dollars until May 2nd. This sounds like a hell of a gig, with the only catch being that Chef Q is on the clock 24/7. She told TMZ, "My daily schedule for Floyd is 'There is no schedule' ... I am here for him anytime. 24 hours, 7 days a week. If he needs me at 3am, I am there cooking up breakfast."
She's based out of Las Vegas, but for the next five weeks, she has only one customer.
For $1,000 a meal, you can bet she cooks everything from scratch, with no food coming from cans or bottles. Chef Q says $1,000 isn't her usual rate for dishes (thankfully). That price was entirely Money Mayweather's call. Chef Q is also making sure Mayweather gets all the nutrients he needs to beat Pac-Man.
"His favorite dish is spaghetti or tacos," Chef Q says ... "but for this fight, he'll be focusing on high-levels of protein with no carbs -- turkey, chicken, beef and fish ... NO PORK!"
At least Mayweather's $150 million fight purse will foot this bill.
