Floyd Mayweather pays tribute to ex-girlfriend Josie Harris THREE days after she was found dead in a car
Boxer Floyd Mayweather took to his Instagram handle today to share a series of flashback pictures of his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris who was found by the police dead in her car in California, Tuesday night.
Breaking his silence, Mayweather captioned each image with a caption, signifying what the late 40-year-old meant to him: 'My Flower’, 'My Rock’, ‘My Friend’, ‘My Sweetheart’ and more.
The police, meanwhile, have termed the tragedy as death and don’t find anything suspicious. Her body was found around 10 pm, in a vehicle parked in the driveway of her apartment outside the city of Santa Clarita. Mayweather and Josie were infamous for their tumultuous relationship which became public when the latter served two months in jail in 2010 on the charges of domestic violence.
However, when questioned about the same, Mayweather denied the accusations, saying, "Did I kick, stomp, and beat someone? No, that didn't happen. I look in your face and say, 'No, that didn't happen.' 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 of restraining a person." as stated by CBS News.
The boxing icon and his former partner were in the middle of a $20 million suit, which Josie had filed against Mayweather for defaming and using domestic violence against her.
Several prominent personalities rushed to social media to pay their respects to Josie on hearing about her tragic death. Perez Hilton tweeted, “You can tell Josie Harris had such a bright and loving soul. May she rest in peace.” DJ Vlad remembered her saying, “Very sad news about Josie Harris. I interviewed her about 7 years ago- she had a great spirit and dope personality. Condolences to Floyd and her children”.
Floyd and Josie dated from 1995 to 2010 and had three children together. Their eldest son Karaun served as a witness in the assault case against his father Floyd, which landed him in prison for two months.
