Floyd Mayweather’s Ex Files $20 Million Lawsuit Against The Boxer
From one battle to the next.
After this past weekend’s huge victory over Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather is about take on quite possibly an even bigger fight. A legal fight.
It was reported after the big match that Mayweather’s ex and mother of his three children, Josie Harris, filed a $20 million lawsuit against the undefeated boxer for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
According to reports, the lawsuit was filed not long after Mayweather’s interview with Katie Couric just weeks before the fight. While discussing his 2010 domestic dispute with Josie, the 38-year-old told Couric that his kids mother was on drugs. “Did I kick, stomp and beat someone? No, that didn’t happen,” Floyd told the host. “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.”
The lawsuit states that Mayweather “maliciously lied about his beating” of her “disclaiming any responsibility for the attack that left Harris with serious injuries.” Documents also state that “these lies were calculated to serve harm” to her, personally and professionally.
The undefeated champion of the world has remained mum on the lawsuit.
