Floyd Mayweather’s baby mama, Josie Harris who has 3 children with the retired boxer, was found dead at her home in Valencia, CA on Tuesday night, TMZ reports.
According to the report, Law enforcement sources said officials were called to the home around 9:30 PM and when they arrived, they found 40-year-old Josie Harris unresponsive in her car.
She was pronounced dead at the scene. The report also said there does not appear to be any foul play and the case is being treated as a death investigation as opposed to a homicide probe.
Josie Harris had a tumultuous relationship with Mayweather. He was convicted of attacking her back in a 2010 domestic violence incident and later served 2 months behind bars
Harris claims she was abused on 6 different occasions. But, the criminal case was centred around a Sept. 2010 incident when Josie Harris claimed Floyd entered her Vegas home while she slept, pulled her hair and then attacked her in front of their children.
Harris claimed their oldest son, Koraun, snuck out of the home and alerted a security guard to call police.
Years later, Mayweather denied the violent allegations during an interview with Katie Couric, saying, “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.”
Joie Harris was outraged by the interview and later sued Mayweather for more than $20 MILLION for defamation. The case is still ongoing.
Harris reportedly dated Mayweather from 1995 to 2010 and was an aspiring actress. She was also in the process of writing a book to help survivors of domestic violence, the TMZ report added.
