Floyd Mayweather Is Being Sued For $20Million
He may have just received the heftiest payday of his life, but Floyd Mayweather may have to kiss goodbye to a big chunk of it as reports suggest he is being sued for $20million.
Josie Harris, who has 3 children with Floyd, is claiming that he lied and ruined her reputation to protect his own. In an interview (below) Floyd claimed that Josie was in a drug fuelled rage and he had to “restrain” her during their infamous domestic violence incident back in 2010.
According to TMZ, Josie believes that Floyd’s lies have now left her with a drug addict label hanging off of her.
Floyd served two months in prison for a domestic violence conviction. Josie’s story of what happened that night is very different. In the lawsuit it is claimed that she and Floyd had broken up but he broke into her home during a jealous rage and attacked her while she was sleeping on her couch with her kids witnessing him dragging her around the house.
Her lawyer, Dan Friedlander, writes in the lawsuit — Floyd’s lies to Couric “were 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.”
Floyd denies the beating, he told CNN there are “no pictures, just hearsay and allegations.”
Here’s the interview.
