Josie Harris, the woman who gave birth to three children with boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, has taken a visit to her attorney to challenge disturbing allegations that Mayweather made to defend himself against domestic abuse accusations.
In an interview with Katie Couric two weeks ago, Mayweather claimed that he only had to be physical with Harris because she was on drugs.
“Did I kick, stomp and beat someone? No, that didn’t happen,” Mayweather 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.”
Apparently, Mayweather’s remarks disturbed Harris quite a bit. She has filed as a massive lawsuit against the boxer to the tune of $20 million dollars, claiming that the story given by Mayweather has been both humiliating and false.
Dan Friedlandler, Harris’ lawyer, said that Mayweather made the story up, which was “knowingly fabricated in order to hype Mayweather’s upcoming fight with Pacquiao, to avoid bad press by deflecting responsibility for beating the mother of his children.”
But children don’t tend to lie as much as adults, and testimony from Koraun Mayweather, the son the two had together, tells a clearer story:
[My dad] said to lock my door and stay in my room. I sat there and thought about what I was going to do next. Just for like a minute. So I ran and I tried to go through the front door to go to the [security] gate. But then his friend [James McNair] came through the door and blocked off the stairway for me to go through. Then I went back into my room and locked the door and then ran back out my bathroom and then hopped over the gate and went to the main entrance gate. I just told [the guard] that my mom was getting hurt and to call the ambulance and the police.
This might be the one fight Mayweather isn’t going to win. If you can beat up the baddest men on the planet, why would you hit a woman?
