Reports gathered by dailynaijamode.com indicates that Floyd Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend and mother of three of his children, Josie Harris has been found dead. The 40-year-old was discovered unresponsive on Monday night when police in Valencia, California were called at around 9.30pm.
According to TMZ, Harris was pronounced dead at the scene with police not treating her death as suspicious and do not believe foul play was involved. Josie had a turbulent relationship with Mayweather and even accused him of abusing her on six different occasions. In 2010, the undefeated American boxer pleaded guilty to attacking her while two of their children watched in Septeember.
Two years later, Mayweather was convicted of assaulting Harris in 2012 and served two months in prison. In 2017, Mayweather denied the violent allegations during an interview with Katie Couric.
He said: “Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? Yes, I did. So if they say that’s domestic violence, then, you know what? I’m guilty. I’m guilty of restraining someone.”
