Floyd Mayweather’s ex-partner on domestic abuse: ‘I was powerless’

Uncategorized

Josie Harris, Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s former long-term partner, spoke out against allegations in a recent documentary that her claims of domestic abuse by the champion boxer — claims that landed Mayweather in prison for two months — were false.

Speaking publicly about the incident for the first time in an interview with Yahoo! Sports writer Martin Rogers, Harris said that the events of Sept. 9, 2010 could have ended tragically. She felt compelled to speak up now because Mayweather, who has three children with Harris, called the charges “over-exaggerated” and “trumped up” in a Showtime documentary called 30 Days in May.

The Yahoo! article cites the police and doctor’s reports, which noted Harris’ bruising and quoted the statement from their son, who said he “saw my Dad hitting” and “kicking my Mom.”

Harris said the incident started because Mayweather was unhappy that she had started seeing then-Bulls guard C.J. Watson after she and Mayweather had stopped seeing each other. Representatives for Mayweather didn’t respond to Rogers’ requests for comment.

From the Yahoo! article:

“Did he beat me to a pulp?” Harris said. “No, but I had bruises on my body and contusions and [a] concussion because the hits were to the back of my head. I believe it was planned to do that … because the bruises don’t show …”

…”All I heard is, ‘Who is C.J. Watson, C.J. Watson the basketball player?’ ” Harris says. “From there it was just … bad. I was powerless. He was holding me down. I couldn’t fight back. The kids were screaming and crying, ‘You’re hurting my Mom.’”

At one point, Mayweather yelled, “I’m going to kill you and the man you are messing around with,” Harris told police. “I’m going to have you both disappear.”

Since Mayweather’s release, Rogers reports, Mayweather and Harris have re-established a relationship.

“[I'm sure] he feels what he did was wrong, but he still hasn’t apologized,” Harris told Rogers. “I don’t know if he thinks I deserved it, [and] if he doesn’t need to apologize to the kids because he is the father.”

I don't know who comes off worse in this story: Chickenweather or the woman who gave de facto approval to domestic violence by taking him back.

"Since Mayweather’s release, Rogers reports, Mayweather and Harris have re-established a relationship."

 

That line tells us all we need to know about these two morons: The children have no chance at successful lives.

The Ghost won't be quite so easy to beat up.

This woman was completely and utterly powerless from the second she met Floyd Mayweather. Three kids and many years later she remains so and apparently doesn't fully realize as much. What can you say, some people just don't get it.

 Whoa Whoa Whoa! Why are you treating her like she's the problem. Maybe she could've prevented this BUT she didn't ask Mayweather to beat her did she? Didn't think so. What is it with folks trying to make the victim into the culprit? Some people just don't get it...

Since Mayweather’s release, Rogers reports, Mayweather and Harris have re-established a relationship.

“[I'm sure] he feels what he did was wrong, but he still hasn’t apologized,” Harris told Rogers. “I don’t know if he thinks I deserved it, [and] if he doesn’t need to apologize to the kids because he is the father.”

 

 

After everything, she doesn't want to be poor so she is back with him....she doesn't care about the kids...she cares about her hair appointments and getting her nails done and living a lavish lifestyle.... put her on a street corner and she could be arrested for hooking...because that's really what she is doing...putting out and putting up with a bunch of crap for money
