She had previously stated she wanted to see Mayweather fight but couldn't afford tickets to a premium match.

Rose reportedly met the boxer in las Vegas while he was training for his latest fight with Andre Berto.

She posted the photo to her Instagram account with the caption "The champ!" but immediately drew crticism from fans who were ill at ease with the fact Mayweather has previously pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges.

The list of charges stretch from 2002 to 2011 when he was sentenced to 90 days in prison.

Here are some of the reactions to the photo on Twitter:
