TMZ has reported that Floyd Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of three of his children, Josie Harris, was found dead around 9:30 p.m. this past Monday night (March 9) in her car at her home in Valencia, California. Authorities told TMZ the 40 year old was pronounced dead at the scene and her death was being handled as a homicide case since there did not seem to be any foul play.
Floyd and Josie were known to have dated from 1995 to 2010 in which they had three children during their love/hate relationship that was tarnished by claims of domestic abuse. Floyd served two months in jail back in 2010 after he attacked the mother of his children in front of them. Shortly afterwards, the former couple were in a heated custody battle as well as a multi-million dollar defamation lawsuit that Josie filed against the father of her children for claiming that her abuse accusations were not true. That case is still ongoing.
Before her death, Josie Harris was writing a book for domestic violence survivors.
