The rocky relationship between the 12-time world champion boxer, Floyd Mayweather and Josie Harris lasted from 1995 till 2010. Mayweather’s baby mama further revealed that she suffered physical abuse from the legend on “six occasions.”
The worse occurred in 2010 when Harris recalled she was asleep and yanked her to the floor by her hair, punched and cursed at her in front of their children.
During the interview, Josie Harris recalled that the former couple did not often meet despite having shared custody of their children. Moreover, Floyd Mayweather was convicted of domestic violence and served two months behind bars for the insanity.
Several years later, in an interview with Katie Couric in 2015, Harris’s ex-partner claimed her to be a drug user. Floyd 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.” And with this, he denied all the violent allegations.
According to the New York Post, Mayweather’s son, Koraun, witnessed the attack and told that he said his father was hitting Harris during the incident. Koraun was ten years old when this unfortunate event occurred.

However, she will always live through her beloved people, and her children, Koraun Mayweather, Zion Mayweather, and Jirah Mayweather. The case is being treated as an active death investigation, according to reports confirmed with Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.
