Floyd Mayweather wrote a sweet note to his late ex-girlfriend Josie Harris only days before going to court demanding her estate pay him money.

Earlier this week, Floyd posted a photo of himself with Josie from back in the day. He captioned the post, “Rest In Peace my baby girl.” Back in March, Josie was found dead in her car parked in front of her Los Angeles home. Her cause of death was determined to be an accidental drug overdose.

Days after making his post, Floyd was in court taking a much different tone in regard to his late ex Josie. At the time of her death, Josie was set to face off with Floyd in a court trial over the $20 million lawsuit she filed against him. The two were scheduled to start trial on December 7, 2020.

Due to her death, the case has been put on hold until someone takes over Josie’s estate and decides to proceed with the case. In newly filed documents, Floyd is demanding the court order his dead ex-girlfriend and her lawyer pay him $9,000 in sanctions. He accuses Josie of failing to provide answers to questions he asked during the case. As a result, Floyd argues the case cannot move forward and he believes he is entitled to sanctions.

A judge has yet to rule.

The lawsuit was filed by Josie back in 2015. Floyd’s ex accused the fighter of lying about a domestic violence incident in an infamous Katie Couric interview.

Josie took issue with Floyd claiming she was high on drugs during the 2010 incident. She denied the allegations and said Floyd was covering for his domestic violence.

Floyd states, “On or about 3/10/20 Plaintiff died; per the Coroner's office, she overdosed on Fentanyl and Vicodin. Defendant has made diligent inquiries and checked court records to learn if Plaintiff had a will or trust, and whether a representative for Plaintiff’s estate has been appointed. So Far as defendant can determine the answers are no.” A judge has yet to rule.

Recently, investigators released the autopsy which revealed Josie died from an accidental drug overdose caused by “mixed drug toxicity (Fentanyl, Alprazolam).” ALPRAZOLAM is an anti-anxiety medicine known by the generic brand name Xanax. The official cause of death was listed as an accidental overdose of the two drugs.

The report notes Josie had a black eye, bruising all over her body and bleeding from the ear. Based on the injuries, the Sheriff’s Department launched a homicide investigation into the death. Eventually, the death was ultimately ruled an accident based on her drug levels.
