Teyana Taylor's steamy new video starring Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks

Harlem's darling Teyana Taylor has thing for professional athletes.

The 23-year-old singer is locking lips with Philadelpha Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks in her new video "Maybe," which was released Friday.

Kendricks famously made headlines when Rihanna revealed on Instagram that he was her "Man Crush Monday" earlier this year.

Taylor is no stranger to pro athletes. She was engaged to Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings.

It's unclear if Taylor and Kendricks have continued their romance outside of the video, but you can bet Rihanna is watching.

This is the first single off Taylor's album, VII, which is slated for an Oct. 21 release.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. fights back sharing photos of his multi-million dollar checks

Floyd Mayweather Jr. can read checks!

He responded to 50 Cent's shocking reading challenge by posting a photo of two checks for his latest fights on his social media accounts on early Saturday morning.

"Read this $72,276,000.00. God bless," Mayweather wrote along with the images of two checks for his fights against Marcos Maidana in May and Saul Alvarez last year.

The posting proves "Money" Mayweather can do simple math and add his multi-million dollar checks, but he doesn't address Fifty's challenge to read a page of a Harry Potter book (Fif later said he could read a page of "The Cat in the Hat").

In exchange for successfully reading the page without messing up, Fif promised to donate $750,000 to a charity of his choice.

As expected, Mayweather isn't addressing the challenge, or the audio recording of him struggling to read a short drop for radio station Power 105.1, which was played by Charlamagne on Friday morning.

Fifty has been throwing jabs at Mayweather following an interview where he talked about hip-hop artists not being relevant. Although Mayweather never mentioned 50 Cent by name, it was enough to get the "I Get Money" rapper fired up.

Now, we wait for a response from Fifty, who hasn't hesitated to use his Instagram to hit Mayweather below the belt.

I'm sure this is far from over.
