Josie Harris was reportedly in the middle of writing a book that revealed her ex-boyfriend, Floyd Mayweather’s, brutal treatment that almost took her life.


On March 9, 2020, actress Josie Harris was found in the driver’s seat of her car, parked by her home in California, lifeless. 

Days later, the departed’s friend revealed that Harris was in the middle of writing a book that involves accounts of violence that she experienced with her ex-boyfriend, Floyd Mayweather. 



Harris’ friend believes that the actress’ accounts need to be made known “now more than ever.” In the extract of the book, Harris wrote:

“My eyes flew open to the sound of my own screams. Pais was searing through my skill when I looked up and saw Floyd. He was holding the back of my hair, standing over me with one hand.”

It is without a doubt the famous boxer was, by all means, stronger than his partner, whom he allegedly made a punching bag. 

The excerpt continued to describe how Mayweather dragged the actress from the couch and across the floor. She described the furniture in the house that was scattered from his physical punishment.

Mayweather constantly denied the charges of abuse and said that he was only restraining his drug-addicted partner.


Included in her account was an explanation behind the athletes fuming anger -- Mayweather accused Harris of infidelity with a man named C.J.

While treating his ex-girlfriend like a competitor in a boxing match, he demanded she get out of his home but also didn’t stop at anything to make her feel immense physical pain.

According to the alleged anecdote, the couple’s three kids were witnesses to the abuse, along with the boxer’s friend who did nothing to stop the scene. Harris wrote:

“Before I could say anything Floyd again tightened his grip on my hair and beat the back of my head. He was determined to teach me a lesson. I could see it in his eyes.”


Their then 11-year-old son Koraun managed to escape from the scene and asked the security for help. As the little boy did so, Mayweather and his friend left in their car.

As a result, the mom-of-three had brain concussions, a sprained arm, and a beaten body. The boxer spent only two months in jail before being convicted.



Harris was found dead by law enforcement with no appearance of foul play and not much reason to suspect a homicide. However, an investigation about her cause of death is still happening.

Mayweather constantly denied the charges of abuse and said that he was only restraining his drug-addicted partner.

After hearing about Harris’ death, the boxing champion took to Instagram to pay tribute to his late ex with a series of photos.
