The woman also said that Mayweather assaulted her in 2005, but later dropped the charges. and he admitted that he was lying. The legendary boxer and his former partner were due to go to court later this year due to a $ 20 million lawsuit Harris filed against Floyd.
Said legal action arose after the former American boxer denied in an interview that in the 2010 dispute, he had beaten her, claiming that he only tried to contain Harris while she was asleep.
“Did I repress a woman who was drugged? Yes, I do. So if they say it's domestic violence, you know what? I'm guilty. I am guilty of restraining someone ”, he assured in that dialogue he had with journalist Katie Couric.
Harris, ready to continue her prosecution, published evidence long after the 2010 incident., which indicated that he still had some sort of relationship with Mayweather.
