Floyd Mayweather’s ex-wife Josie Harris dies after accidental drug overdose

Floyd Mayweather may be one of the finest athletes to have ever graced the ring, but his personal life has been racked with tragedy.

With Mayweather’s status, it was only natural for him to attract an excessive amount of attention from the other sex.

While Mayweather has had multiple love relationships, his connection with the late Josie Harris offered him both highs and lows.

According to reports, Harris, the mother of three of Mayweather’s four children, was discovered unresponsive in her car while parked on the driveway of her home in Southern California. Later that night, she was pronounced dead at the site.

While law authorities preferred not to identify the cause of death at the time, it was ultimately determined to be an accidental overdose. According to USA Today, the exact cause of death was ‘mixed drug poisoning’ caused by the intake of Fentanyl, an opioid, and Alprarzoam, a medicine marketed as Xanax.

Josie Harris’ Xanax history

Harris admitted that she was compelled to rely on Xanax owing to her anxiousness, which originated from her troubled relationship with Mayweather.

It was revealed that her relationship with Mayweather was not that great towards the end. Floyd Mayweather would rarely visit for any reason other than to pick up their children.

To avoid needless meetings, the undefeated boxer frequently had his own plane bring their children.

However, Harris liked the agreement because it addressed their difficulties with domestic abuse. She stated the same in a public forum as well.

“(It means) I don’t have to take a Xanax before he (Floyd Mayweather) comes, otherwise I will be sweating bullets. 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,” said Harris.

Floyd Mayweather had a tough year in 2020

Mayweather suffered grief after the tragedy as he had to deal with the death of his children’s mother, as well as the death of his trainer and uncle, Roger Mayweather.

He took to social media to vow that he will follow in the shoes of his late trainer and mentor the future generation of fighters. This was Mayweather’s way of honouring Roger Mayweather’s life.

“I am new at training and so far I’ve been working with people with no boxing experience, therefore we are growing together. But I promise you, I will be one of the best trainers in the world,” Mayweather wrote in a lengthy post on Instagram.

Mayweather and Roger had a very close friendship, thus the news of the boxing legend’s death affected ‘Money’ deeply.
