Authorities are currently investigating the cause of Harris’ death. According to CNN, it is being treated as a death investigation instead of a homicide case as is the standard procedure for high profile cases.

Harris, 40, was discovered unresponsive inside a car parked on her driveway in Valencia, California on March 10. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

Harris had accused the boxing heavyweight champion of domestic abuse several times during their relationship.

Fans of Mayweather have been expressing their condolences on Twitter, extending their prayers and words of comfort for him and Harris’ family.

Another added, “That's awful. Sending condolences and prayers to her family.”

Mayweather and Harris dated for ten years until 2010 when they broke up. Harris had accused the boxing heavyweight champion of domestic abuse several times during their relationship.

In 2012, the boxer served three months in jail for allegedly attacking Harris in front of their two sons in 2010. He reportedly woke her from her sleep in her Vegas home, pulled her hair and attacked her in the presence of their children.

In 2015, Harris filed a defamation lawsuit against Mayweather after labeling her a drug addict during his interview with Katie Couric. She also claimed he lied when he denied ever beating her.

During that interview, Mayweather admitted he was guilty of restraining Harris due to her drug use. Harris’ $20 million defamation lawsuit was still ongoing at the time of her death.

Mayweather has yet to react to Harris’ death. He was reportedly in Amsterdam the day she died.
