VALENCIA—Boxing star Floyd Mayweather’s former girlfriend, Josie Harris, 40, was found dead at her home on Tuesday, March 10.
Harris, who had three children with the boxing star, was found in her car and unresponsive by law enforcement at her home at approximately 9:30 p.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene and there appears to be no signs of foul play.
Harris and Mayweather had a rough relationship where the athlete was convicted of attacking her during a 2010 domestic violence incident. He later served 2 months behind bars as a result
Harris claimed in September 2010, Mayweather entered her Las Vegas home while she slept, pulled her hair and attacked her in front of their children. She claimed their oldest son, Koraun, snuck out of the home and alerted a security guard to contact the police. Mayweather denied the allegations and claimed he was simply restraining her due to drug use. She later sued Mayweather for more than $20 million for defamation, which the case is still ongoing.
Harris and Mayweather dated from 1995 to 2010. She was an aspiring actress who was also in the process of writing a book to help survivors of domestic violence. Her death is being investigated as a death investigation and not a murder investigation.
