According to The Blast, Floyd Mayweather is in a nasty custody battle over his 17-year-old son with his ex girlfriend Josie Harris.

Harris, recently went to court and filed emergency documents, asking a judge to force the boxing champ to return their son, Zion, from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

Harris, has physical custody of their son, and claims Zion recently fled her Valencia, CA home and took off with Mayweather. She says the boy is in his last year of high-school, and is putting his graduation in jeopardy by blowing off class.

She also says the boxer’s lifestyle is not appropriate for a 17-year-old, who “needs to focus on finishing school,” and prepare for college.

Money Mayweather reportedly filed his own documents, defending his lifestyle and explaining that it’s in the boy’s best interest to be exposed to the famous influencers he encounters on a daily basis.

According to The Blast, in Mayweather’s filing he says his son has made it clear that if he’s forced to stay with his mom, he will flee home and live on the streets. Mayweather explains that he cannot willingly cast his son out into the streets so he has been caring for the boy while the custody matter is handled.

He counters Harris’ accusations about bringing his son around strippers, and says the child has in fact rubbed elbows with the likes of Warren Buffet, Professor Charles Oglestree of Harvard Law School and even Kobe Bryant.

Mayweather also claims, “I have never drank, smoked or used drugs,” but says Harris has “indulgences” which he does not find suitable for the development of their children. He doesn’t go into detail what those indulgences are, but he also says his ex tells him he is an “awesome father” with a “good heart.”

Mayweather was arrested for domestic violence against Harris in 2010, and later served 3 months in jail, and she brings the incident up in her documents, as well as multiple incidents of having to go to court to demand that Mayweather comply with the custody agreement.

The boxer still believes Harris exaggerated the domestic abuse  incident, and claims she later admitted it in an email. He does not take any responsibility for that, and explains she was “under the influence” with an alleged combination of marijuana, alcohol, Vicodin, Xanax and Wellburtrin.

  1. When a child wants to leave you and would rather live in the streets then with mom. Let him go. Let his father step in and raise him.
    Raising a child looks easy but in reality when they are troubled it can be hard. As for the mother of his child it is what it is.

    Every son needs his father. Just as much as they need their mother.

    The court will/should appoint the child an attorney and make the best decision in support of the child. The court will weigh heavily the druthers of that 17 year old. I give Harris the benefit of the doubt; it’s not about the money, but the best interest of the child. I pray they can work it out and their son graduates high school.

    Harris isn’t crazy, that 17 year old will soon be 18 and she needs to keep him close as long as possible. And in some states child support is paid through college. I don’t follow Mayweather, but I would think that living with him and being exposed to his entourage is probably safer than living on the streets. And the child did make his own decision. He ‘fled’ his momma’s house and ran right straight to his dad’s.

  5. Mayweather has been punched upside his head one too many times!
    Let the child stay with his mother, at least until he graduates from high school.
    At that point, the kid can make his OWN decisions.

    Being around Floyd and his entourage IS NOT A GOOD IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!
    How about the kid attending COLLEGE–that is IF he is NOT AS DUMB AS HIS FATHER!!!!!
