G Unit mogul 50 Cent believes the domestic violence accusation against his friend Floyd Mayweather is nothing more than a money scheme from an “angry baby mama.”
Earlier today (September 9), TMZ broke the news that Las Vegas police were seeking Mayweather for questioning after receiving a 911 call from Josie Harris. She called police around 5AM alleging that Mayweather had attacked her at their home before fleeing the premises. Police took a statement and are still looking for the boxer.
Harris went to local Southern Hills hospital and has not released a statement to the press. She has three children with Mayweather, and previously logged a complaint against him in 2003 for punching and kicking her. Those charges were later dropped in 2005, when Harris admitted under oath she made the claims due to anger at Mayweather for dating another woman.
50 Cent dismissed the latest allegation as baseless, stating his conversation with Floyd Mayweather validated his belief that Harris is trying to extort his friend. In addition, 50 noted that Mayweather does not have an arrest warrant out on him because Harris has no bruises to substantiate her claim.
“Another case of [an] angry baby mama wanting money,” 50 said via his Twitter account. “Police are looking for Floyd Mayweather. I just got off the phone with him. She’s claiming he hit her but has no bruises. Floyd went to see his kids last night. If a fighter of Floyd’s caliber hits you, you would be bruised.”
According to 50, Mayweather and Harris began arguing when he questioned her about the house being unclean and the clothes he brought for his children being discarded.
“I talked to him before and after the situation; he wasnt even upset. He said he asked her why was the house so dirty [and] she started tripping,” 50 continued. “He bought nice clothes for his kids; they were all over the place. His baby mama said she’s not gonna force them to wear clothes they don’t want. I told him that’s crazy. I know how he felt. I met her before so I told him she would calm down. [I] can’t believe she called the cops.”
Another alleged source of contention is Harris using part of the home Mayweather is paying for as a residence for one of her girlfriends.
“She has a girlfriend that stays in the guesthouse that Floyd is paying for her as child support,” 50 revealed. “That is helping fuel the situation.”
The latest negative publicity for Mayweather comes less than one full week after he posted a video ridiculing Manny Pacquiao with racial taunts. An apology video with equally insensitive racial remarks resulted in the NaFFAA (National Federation of Filipino American Associations) calling for other civic associations including the NAACP to demand that Mayweather be censured by every national boxing organization.
At press time, Floyd Mayweather could not be reached for comment.
