Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently got awarded his $100 million cheque from his fight with Manny Pacquiao, but someone wants part of it already.
The boxer’s ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, is suing him for $20 million for defamation of character.
Harris, who has 3 kids with Mayweather, claimed Mayweather painted a wrong picture of her in a recent interview in a suit filed on Tuesday.
“Mayweather knowingly and maliciously lied about his beating of Harris, disclaiming any responsibility for the attack and Harris’ resulting serious injuries,” the suit reads, “Instead, Mayweather pointed his finger at Harris, labeling her as a drug abuser and an aggressor who the world-class boxer had to ‘restrain.’”
“As an aspiring television personality and author, Harris would become unemployable and unpublishable if potential employers or publishers believe that she is, or even might be, a drug abuser or addict, as Mayweather implies in the interview,” the suit reads.
Mayweather has yet to comment on the suit.
