Legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather recently took to his Instagram account to reminisce his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, who passed away last year. She was mother of three of Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s children and died from an accidental drug overdose, according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.
The specific cause of death was “mixed drug toxicity” stemmed from Fentanyl and Alprarzoam, according to the Medical Examiner-Coroner. Fentanyl is an opiod and Alprarzoam is sold under brand names such as Xanax. Deontay Wilder ‘Throws Punches’ At Beach In Video

Floyd Mayweather lost Josie Harris last year
Harris was 40 when she was found dead March 10 in her car that was parked in the driveway of her Southern California home. The cause of death was not released at the time because law enforcement placed a security hold on the case. The hold has been lifted and case status on the Medical Examiner-Coroner’s website is listed as closed.
Harris’ relationship with Mayweather was turbulent. She filed a domestic battery report against Mayweather in 2010 and it led to the boxer spending two months in prison in 2012. In a 2014 interview with USA TODAY Sports, Harris said she suffered physical abuse from the boxer on “six occasions,” the worst coming in September 2010.
During that incident, Harris said, Mayweather entered her home as she slept, yanked her to the floor by her hair, then punched and kicked and screamed profanity at her in front of their children. In an interview with Katie Couric in 2015, Mayweather called Harris a drug abuser. Harris, in turn, sued Mayweather for $20 million for defamation.
