Earlier this year, Josie was found dead from an accidental drug overdose. At the time of her death, Josie was in the middle of a $20 million legal battle with Floyd. The two were scheduled to start trial on December 7, 2020. The trial has been put on hold until someone is put in charge of Josie’s estate.
Back in 2015, Josie sued Floyd accusing him of lying about a domestic violence incident in an infamous Katie Couric interview.
During the interview, Floyd claimed during a 2010 altercation, Josie was high on drugs and he had to be restrained. Josie said the allegation was false and said he violently assaulted her.
Floyd was sentenced to two months behind bars over the alleged assault. Josie had shut down Floyd’s attempts to have the case dismissed several times and was set to face off with him later this year. The original trial date was scheduled for December 7, 2020.
Due to Josie’s death, the lawsuit was put on hold until someone was put in charge of her estate.
