Looking at Floyd Mayweather Jr‘s life, everything seems perfect. He already has expensive cars, mansions, and all the luxuries one could dream of. But sometimes, all that glitters is not gold. As grand and dreamy as the life of the former champion is, his personal life has not been a smooth sail. Even though his professional career has no losses, that changes when it comes to his personal life. Mayweather Jr. experienced the death of Josie Harris,  his ex-girlfriend, and the mother to his three children, in 2019.

Recently, Mayweather’s Baby Momma, Melissia Brim, took to Instagram to remember Harris and shared a message on the death anniversary of the late actor.

I would let her know how strong you guys have been these past three years, even though it hasn’t been easy.”

She further wrote, “I would tell her how funny y’all are and how proud she would of y’all. But I know she’s with y’all every day, so she sees it all.”

Notably, Josie Harris died in 2020. She was found unconscious inside her car outside her California home. The cause of death was later described as a drug overdose. Floyd Mayweather Jr. remembered his ex-girlfriend on her death anniversary by sharing a picture of his kids on Instagram.
