Floyd Mayweather dedicates a message to the mother of his children who died in 2020


Almost two years have passed since the death of Josie Harris, ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather and mother of his three children, Kouran, Zion and Jirah, and the athlete has not missed the opportunity to remember her on her birthday.

Through his Instagram account, Mayweather shared a photo of the mausoleum where Harris rests. In the image you can see a bouquet of flowers and the phrase “Happy Birthday”. “Heavenly happy birthday Josie! There isn’t a day that I don’t think of you.”, wrote the boxer in the description of the publication.

Josie Harris, mother of Mayweather’s children, passed away in March 2020

According to reports, Josie Harris was pronounced dead on the evening of March 10, 2020, after police found her unresponsive in a car outside her home in California. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department responded to Harris’ home in Valencia around 9:30 p.m. where they found the 40-year-old woman unresponsive in her parked vehicle.

According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner, Josie Harris died of an accidental drug overdose. The specific cause of death, “mixed drug toxicity,” came from fentanyl and alprarzoam. Fentanyl is an opium and alprarzoam is sold under brand names such as Xanax.

His cause of death was only revealed in June 2020 because law enforcement placed a security hold on the case.

Her relationship with Floyd Mayweather

Harris’ relationship with Mayweather was turbulent. She filed a domestic assault report against Mayweather in 2010 and led to the boxer spending two months in prison in 2012. In a 2014 interview with USA TODAY SportsHarris said he was physically abused by the boxer on “six occasions.”

Harrris recounted that the worst of the assaults occurred in September 2010. During that incident, Mayweather entered her home while she was sleeping, pulled her to the floor by her hair, then punched, kicked, and yelled profanities at her in front of her children. .

In an interview with Katie Couric in 2015, Mayweather called Harris a drug addict. Harris, in turn, sued Mayweather for $20 million for defamation.
