Report: Floyd Mayweather demanded legal sanctions from Josie Harris days after her death

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr. filed a legal document against his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, days after her death in March, according to a report.

Harris was found dead in her car outside her home in the Los Angeles area on March 10. She was 40 years old. The coroner’s report said she died of an accidental drug overdose.

Prior to her death, Harris was engaged in a $20 million lawsuit with Mayweather over an accusation that the former boxer lied about a 2010 domestic violence incident during a 2015 interview with Katie Couric.

Though Mayweather paid tribute to Harris with an Instagram post after her death, he still filed a legal motion regarding the case.

The Blast says Mayweather filed a motion days after Harris’ death seeking $9,000 in sanctions from Harris’ lawyer and estate. Mayweather submitted questions that were not answered by Harris’ legal team prior to her death, which is why he argues the case should not proceed and he should be paid the sanctions.

Someone in charge of Harris’ estate would have to take over the lawsuit for it to proceed. Mayweather’s legal filing says they found no evidence Harris had a will or trust.
