Harris claimed to have been bodily abused by Mayweather a minimum of six instances earlier than the final brutal beating she obtained by him in September of 2010. That abuse was witnessed by their then-15-year-old son, Koraun. Mayweather spent 60 days in jail for that offense.

Even although the couple was aside on the time of the altercation, that they had argued violently after the boxing champ had heard rumors about Harris courting one other man. Harris, the mom of three of Mayweather’s 4 kids, had argued with him earlier that September night. When police had been summoned, the boxer exited the premises.

Mayweather has maintained his innocence regardless of his conviction for it.
“Did I kick, stomp, and beat someone? No, that didn’t happen,” he informed Katie Couric throughout an interview in 2015. “Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? Yes, I did. So if they say that’s domestic violence, then, you know what? I’m guilty. I’m guilty of restraining someone.”
Harris spoke completely in 2013 with NewsOne’s sister web site Madame Noire to debate sure complexities of their relationship.
That identical 12 months, Harris claimed Mayweather was dishonest on Shantel Jackson, who on the time was his off-again fiancée, with seven different ladies.
Then, in 2015, Harris sued him for $20 million in damages for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional misery and negligent infliction of emotional misery.
Mayweather’s abuse to Harris was one among seven assaults that the then-highest-earning athlete in sports activities allegedly dedicated towards 5 completely different ladies, every ensuing in him being arrested or issued a quotation. That contains Jackson, who in 2014 filed a civil lawsuit towards Mayweather together with allegations of battery, false imprisonment and claims that he pointed a gun at her.
In 2017, Harris mirrored on her relationship with Mayweather.
“I was a battered woman. I felt embarrassed about saying I was a battered woman. I felt shame. I felt like it was my fault. What did I do? I didn’t understand what a battered woman was at that time,” Harris informed USA Today in an interview. “Now I know I was in a very dysfunctional, hostile relationship and a victim of domestic violence.”
