Late Tuesday night, the ex-girlfriend and mother to three of Floyd Mayweather’s children was found dead at her home.
Josie Harris, 40, was discovered unresponsive in her car when police arrived around 9:30 p.m.
Harris was pronounced dead at the scene, which has many wondering if Mayweather went off the rails.
The Mayweather Rap Sheet
For all his glory in the ring, Floyd Mayweather has a rather disturbing past of violence outside the ring.
From 2001-2002, Mayweather was hit with numerous domestic violence charges.
While three charges were dismissed, he did plead guilty to two counts of battery domestic violence.
At the time, Melissa Brin, another ex-girlfriend and mother of his oldest daughter, claimed Mayweather “swung open a car door, hitting her jaw, pushed her into the car and punched her several times in the face and body.”
Mayweather was sentenced to two days of house arrest and 48 hours of community service in his plea deal.
In 2003, Mayweather struck again.
In this instance, Mayweather was charged with two counts of battery against two women.
One of the women, Herneathea McGill testified that he had “punched [her] on the cheek, and then punched [Kaara] Blackburn on the back of the head as she tried to help her friend.”
Once again, Mayweather got off with a slap on the wrist, being sentenced to 100 hours of community service.
In 2008, those charges were “dismissed per negotiation,” which probably means a payment settlement was arranged.
In 2011, Mayweather was again hit with a domestic violence charge as well as two counts of harassment.
This complaint involved the now-deceased Josie Harris.
According to reports, after a heated exchange about Harris dating someone else, Mayweather allegedly started hitting her.
Harris told police Mayweather stated, “I’m going to kill you and the man you’re messing with.”
In 2013, Harris stated, “Did he beat me to a pulp? No, but I had bruises on my body and contusions and [a] concussion because the hits were to the back of my head. I believe it was planned to do that … because the bruises don’t show …”
According to the incident report, Harris had “redness on her face and a large contusion to the right side of her forehead and chin.”
Harris does have an outstanding lawsuit against Mayweather for $20 million, but the police have stated right now, Harris’ death is not being ruled as foul play.
According to a TMZ report, the police are investigating this as a death rather than a homicide.
