Josie Harris says Floyd Mayweather deleted her Instagram account over tell-all book

Josie Harris

Josie Harris lost her Instagram account for a handful of days, and she says Floyd Mayweather was behind the move because he wants to silence her.

Harris, who has three children with Mayweather and was the victim in the assault case that led to Mayweather being jailed in 2012, said on Twitter Sept. 4 that her Instagram account had been deleted. Harris believes Mayweather shut down her account to silence her from promoting her upcoming tell-all book about her relationship with him.

Harris rarely uses her Twitter account because Instagram is her preferred social media network, but she started using Twitter frequently while her account was disabled.

On Tuesday, Harris implied on Twitter that Floyd was behind her Instagram account being deleted:

Harris’ Instagram account was reinstated Tuesday after she sent an email to the social media company.

Bossip, which posted a copy of Harris’ email, says Harris is considering legal action against Mayweather. They say Harris believes Mayweather has a contact at Instagram who helps him shut down accounts. Bossip noted that both Shantel Jackson and Princess Love — two ex-girlfriends of Floyd — had their accounts shut down after getting on his bad side.

Proving that he’s a good sport and has a wonderful sense of humor, Manny decided to make the sketch come true by actually singing the song. You can see it in the video at the top, while video of Drake’s skit from the ESPYs is below. Look at how much Manny was getting into it!

Shantel Jackson lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather accuses him of threatening her with gun, multiple assaults

Floyd Mayweather Shantel Jackson

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Floyd Mayweather Jr. is being accused of assaulting one of his girlfriends.

Floyd’s ex-girlfriend/fiancee Shantel Jackson, who broke up with him 4-5 months ago, is now suing the boxer and accusing him of assaulting her multiple times and threatening her with a gun.

Jackson, who is currently dating rapper Nelly, retained Gloria Allred as her attorney and is seeking a jury trial. She hopes to be awarded damages and obtain an injunction/restraining order against Floyd.

According to a statement from Allred, Mayweather committed the following against Jackson:

– invasion of privacy
– assault and battery
– defamation
– false imprisonment

Jackson says she met Floyd in 2006 when she was 21 and working at an Atlanta restaurant. He eventually moved her out to Las Vegas where she became one of his girls. The two eventually became engaged and she stuck with him when he served his jail sentence for domestic violence committed against ex-girlfriend Josie Harris.

According to the statement and complaint from Allred, Jackson says Mayweather first assaulted her in Aug. 2012 after he was released from prison.

“He twisted [her] arm, choked her and forcibly took her phone away from her to look through it,” the complaint states, according to TMZ.

In Feb. 2013, Jackson says she asked Floyd to go to counseling with her. He said he would and never did. She eventually broke up with him in April and moved to Los Angeles, but Floyd wanted her back and sent a jet to fly her back.

Jackson alleges that Floyd assaulted her again when she returned.

Floyd allegedly “bent her arm, restrained her, and pointed a gun at her foot, asking ‘Which toe do you want me to shoot,’ ” according to the complaint.

Despite being engaged to Floyd, she was uncomfortable with the lifestyle as one of his girls. She says he took away her possessions and had his staff members follow her around if she tried to leave the house.

Floyd grew so upset with her he once allegedly demanded at gunpoint that she remove her engagement ring.

The two were not together for a good part of 2013, but Floyd flew Miss Jackson out to Las Vegas for his September fight against Canelo Alvarez last year. The two continued to be intimate, because Shantel says she became pregnant in Nov. 2013 with twins fathered by Floyd. She had an abortion in Jan. 2014.

On May 1, Floyd posted a photo and message on social media indicating that he broke up with Miss Jackson because she got an abortion. This act from Floyd allegedly was in retaliation to Jackson posting a picture on Instagram of her with Nelly.

You know what this tells us? Everything we’ve reported about the relationship between Jackson and Mayweather over the past few years has been accurate. Since 2012, they’ve really been on and off, mostly because of Jackson’s dissatisfaction with Floyd.

You may call her a golddigger for filing the suit, but at least she got the courage to stand up to the abuse from Floyd.

Adrien Broner chokes Emanuel Taylor at press conference (Video)

How desperate are Adrien Broner and Emanuel Taylor to attract some attention to their Saturday fight? They pulled the old “let’s make something crazy happen at our press conference” move to grab some headlines.

During their news conference Thursday, the two were standing side-by-side for some photos. They exchanged trash talk and were pointing in each other’s faces, and then the short-tempered Broner briefly grabbed Taylor by the throat before they were separated.

The two will fight on Saturday in Cincinnati with Broner still looking to repair his image after getting his head handed to him by Marcos Maidana last year.

Floyd Mayweather acknowledges he’s not the best reader

Floyd MayweatherFloyd Mayweather Jr. held a conference call with the media on Thursday to promote his Sept. 13 fight with Marcos Maidana and ended up talking about the subject of his reading.

Mayweather acknowledged he’s not the best reader, but the undefeated boxer emphasized there is a difference between being intelligent and being educated.

The first three questions of the conference call all had to do with 50 Cent’s reading challenge to Floyd that sparked the whole controversy.

Below is a transcription of the questions and answers via Mayweather’s PR team:

Q: Do you think that 50 Cent crossed the line by suggesting that you have trouble reading in that Instagram video that he posted?

Mayweather: My thing is this, I try to focus on Maidana. I don’t really focus on that. I think people can believe whatever they want to believe. Intelligence and education are two different things. I’m happy with my career and I wish 50 Cent nothing but the best; when I’m in training camp I try to focus on my training. You have to realize that the circus is for clowns and my job is just to focus on my job, which is boxing. I know what I can and I can’t do, so I can care less.

Q: Were you surprised that 50 Cent went in that direction and talked about a topic that would be that sensitive?

Mayweather: I don’t even worry about that. Like I said before, that’s not my focus. I know what I can and I can’t do. You guys don’t know when you’re dealing with pay-per-view you have to read at least 60 to 70 teleprompters, and I don’t think they could choose a better person for the job than myself. I go out there and I do it with no problem.

I just feel like basically I’m not judged by a person, I’m judged by God. Reading does not define my place in boxing history. Will God not let me in heaven because I didn’t read like a news anchor? Me, myself, I would be perfect at reading if it was how I made my living and fed my family. Once again, intelligence and education are two different things.

Making fun of a person because they can’t read is not funny. It’s tragic. Second, if I really couldn’t read it would make my accomplishments even that much more amazing. I don’t know if 50 Cent is a boxing promoter, I don’t know if he’s making music; I really don’t know. My focus is on Floyd Mayweather, and I wish 50 Cent nothing but the best.

Mayweather was then asked about the audio from the radio station that showed him struggling to read. Mayweather came up with a bunch of possible explanations for why he struggled to read in the audio clip and then reiterated that reading is not an indication of his intelligence.

Adrien Broner on Emanuel Taylor: I’m going to kick his ass

Adrien Broner gold grill

Adrien Broner may have lost to Marcos Maidana in December, but he sure hasn’t lost any confidence.

Broner (28-1, 22 KOs) is set to face Emanuel Taylor on Saturday in his hometown of Cincinnati. Broner is eager to give his hometown fans a show and is promising “an ass beating,” in his words.

“I’m still AB, I’ll give him an ass beating for sure,” Broner said at his workout on Wednesday. “I didn’t come to play any games. I’m here to kick his ass. I’m not playing around. If I feel like dancing, I’m going to dance. But I’m going to get the job done and it won’t be going to a decision.”

Broner has been criticized for goofing around and being too much of a showman in the ring. He clowned around against Maidana and got knocked down twice. Broner claims to be more disciplined now.

“I have no more flaws. I put down everything. Now I just have fun, I stay in shape and I keep positive people around.”

Oh, and how rich is this? Despite his loss, Broner is still putting himself in the same category as Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is undefeated.

“He’s going to come to fight. When people fight an Adrien Broner or a Floyd Mayweather they’re going to come to fight. I’m sure he trained to his best, he’s in tip-top shape and he’s ready to go.”

Suuuuure Adrien. Keep believing you’re in the same class as Floyd. Not since you got worked by Maidana you’re not. Can you believe that these remarks actually would qualify as humble for Broner?

Floyd Mayweather’s baby mamas Melissia Brim and Josie Harris fight (Video)

On Sunday we told you about Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s baby mamas getting into a fight with one another over Instagram. Now we can present video the two of them going at it during a boxing event at The Palms in Las Vegas Saturday night.

[Previously: Read about the Instagram fight between Mayweather's baby mamas]

Floyd MayweatherBoxing Scene shared this video Sunday and said it was of Mayweather in a “minor confrontation” with a woman at The Palms during a boxing card put on by Mayweather’s “The Money Team.” We’re pretty confident Boxing Scene has the story wrong, because the video appears to show Floyd’s baby mama Melissia Brim yelling at someone behind Floyd (who looks like the other baby mama — Josie Harris) before being escorted out by security.

The woman getting kicked out is definitely Brim — she shared photos on Instagram Saturday of herself wearing the exact same clothes:

Brim appears to be yelling at a woman in sunglasses seated close to Floyd. The woman in sunglasses looks a lot like Harris. It seems like Floyd was actually trying to play peacemaker between them. The confrontation between the women also explains the Instagram drama, too.

Mayweather keeps both his baby mamas involved in his life because he maintains relationships with all of his children. He’s also been known to maintain sexual relationships with the baby mamas.

Floyd has three children with Harris and one with Brim. He would be wise to keep the two baby mamas apart in the future, though he’s never been known to maintain a conventional structure to his personal life.
