In a recent interview with Katie Couric, Floyd Mayweather said that all he did was “restrain” Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children, while she was high on drugs during a 2010 incident that led to his domestic violence conviction and a 90 day jail sentence the following year.

“Did I kick, stomp and beat someone? No, that didn’t happen,” Floyd told Couric. “Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? Yes, I did. So if they say that’s domestic violence, then, you know what? I’m guilty. I’m guilty of restraining someone.”

Now, Harris is suing Mayweather for more than $20 million, saying she’s been labeled a drug addict and was humiliated, according to TMZ Sports.

The report says that Harris’ lawyer, Dan Friedlander, wrote in the lawsuit that the boxing star’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.”

    For me she lost her credibility when she did that reality show and her story line was primarily how she and Floyd would sleep together while he was involved with a live-in girlfriend following the domestic incident and Floyd’s jail time; Domestic Violence is a serious offense that people continue to turn their backs on, I wish people who mock DV could be punished!

    Stupid Mayweather chose to have three babies with this “drug addict” (her words) baby mama, and we all know he is not smarter than a 5th grader.

    While I disagree with the Becky comment, this is most definitely a shakedown. Unfortunately, with our politically correct court system and the general dislike for Mayweather; the right judge ( or the wrong one) depending on one’s perspective may actually want to giver her some money.

    wow ,home girl waited till after pretty boy floyd won billions to sue just to make sure he would have money after taxes to pay her fine ash self if she wins this law suit

  7. 20 million??? Girl please! IF it happened to you that is horrible, but this looks like a shake down, and your credibility is as risk. . . . again 20 million??? Get a job! Chances are you will get nothing.
