Floyd Mayweather battered his Ex Josie Harris

I just came across this news on blackamericaweb.com (it was posted  last month) and am wondering is it a case of ‘what you do is who you are’? should we consider the profession of people before we date/marry them? humm! I guess that’s question for the gods. A lot of homes have turned to boxing arenas except for the absence of championship belts and the glitz/glamour associated with the game. This needs to stop but how? the women will rather conceal than report it, some even give excuses for the behavior of their husbands…I tire joor.

Josie Harris, Floyd Mayweather’s former girlfriend and mother to three of his four children, spoke at length to USA Today about the physical and emotional abuse she says she endured during her relationship with the boxer.

[She] doesn’t see Mayweather much these days. Occasionally he will collect their children in person, but more often than not they are transported using the jet service he uses for much of his travel outside of Las Vegas.

It’s an arrangement she is happy with.

“(It means) I don’t have to take a Xanax before he comes, otherwise I will be sweating bullets,” Harris told USA TODAY Sports in an interview at her home 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles. “For some reason I still get anxiety when I know that he is on his way. I have no idea why, but I get really overwhelmed when I know that I have to be around him.”

Harris says she suffered physical abuse from the boxer on “six occasions,” the worst coming in September 2010, when Mayweather entered Harris’ home as she slept, yanked her to the floor by her hair, then punched and kicked and screamed cuss words at her in front of their children. It was the couple’s oldest son, Koraun, who slipped out of the house to alert a security guard to summon police.
