It’s a good thing Floyd Mayweather won that fight against Manny Pacquiao because a chunk of his earnings might be up for grabs. Mayweather is being sued by his baby’s mother, Josie Harris, for $20 million.
Harris claims the boxing champ lied in an interview recently, when speaking about attacking her five years ago.
Josie Harris, who has 3 kids with Floyd, claims he lied through his teeth in an interview with Katie Couric just 2 weeks before the big fight … when he claimed Josie was in a drug-fueled rage and he had to “restrain” her during their infamous 2010 domestic violence incident.
Point of fact … Floyd was convicted of domestic violence and spent two months in jail.
Josie recounts her terror in the lawsuit, explaining how she and Floyd had broken up … but he flew into a jealous rage that night, broke into her home and viciously attacked her while she was sleeping on her couch … and her kids saw part of the beating.
Harris says she is now labeled a drug addict thanks to Mayweather’s lies — and was embarrassed and humiliated on a global scale.
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.”
Harris wants in excess of $20 million.
Harris also wrote on Instagram this morning, “People push you to your limits but when you finally explode and fight back they want to call you out your name. Thou shall not take no s**t. What you allow is what will continue.
Strong people don’t ‘shut up and deal’. They draw a line and don’t let people walk on them. They take action to change their situation.”
