Seemingly out of nowhere, RiRi pulled out a strip of duct tape and planted it right across the boxing champion’s face, much to his shock.
Rihanna has dipped a toe into the movie world before, taking a small part in Battleship and voicing a character in this year’s animated film Home.
As to precisely what Floyd did to merit that punishment?
According to Radio.com, fans were surprised at how Rihanna behaved just before she took the stage at the BET Awards. She was wearing a gold blazer accessorized with layered necklaces and a sleek ponytail. After the break she was seen placing the strip over the surprised boxer’s mouth and looking away.
FYI: Rihanna is wearing a Giorgio Armani bronze one button peak lapel tuxedo paired with silk shorts.
As Omarion and Chris Brown hit the stage to perform their hot jam together, Rihanna was spotted singing along front and center.
Rihanna gets playful with some duct tape while sitting in the front row with Floyd Mayweather at the 2015 BET Awards on Sunday (June 28) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Luckily for her, Floyd seemed to be in a good mood and went along with the stunt like a true champion, keeping the tape in place.
And that wasn’t the singer’s only stand-out moment at the 2015 BET Awards.
She also released a teaser for her long-overdue music video for “Bitch Better Have My Money“.
