Floyd Mayweather’s baby mama Josie Harris was reportedly writing a book detailing the fighter’s alleged abuse before her death.
The Sun spoke to a friend of Harris’ who revealed she was in the middle of writing a tell-all about her relationship with Mayweather. Harris was set to expose “savage beatings” she allegedly suffered at the hands of Mayweather.
Earlier this month, Harris was found dead in the front seat of her car. The outlet reports Harris’ friend provided them with excerpts of the memoir. Harris reportedly wrote how Mayweather “almost killed” her during one incident in front of their three kids.
The Sun says the source is speaking out because, “Josie deserves to have her voice heard, now more than ever”.
The report quoted an excerpt, “My eyes flew open to the sound of my own screams. Pain was searing through my skull when I looked up and saw Floyd. He was holding the back of my hair, standing over me with one hand, punching the back of my head with the other… dragging me off the sofa and pulling me across the room.
She accused him of defaming her by lying about his domestic violence in an interview with Katie Couric. The two were scheduled to face off at trial on December 7.
In 2015, Harris sued Mayweather for $20 million accusing him of lying about her in an interview with Katie Couric. During the sit-down, Mayweather claimed Harris was high on drugs during a 2010 domestic violence incident. Mayweather was arrested following the incident and sentenced to two months behind bars.
Harris’ cause of death is unknown with no drugs or suicide note found at the scene. A toxicology will most likely provide more answers.
Mayweather posted a tribute to Harris following her death captioned, “My Baby.”
