Josie Harris is working on a book about her relationship with trash talking boxer Floyd Mayweather and from the interview she just did with 50 Cent’s baby mama Shaniqua Tompkins we can tell reflections on their time together will be nothing like what President Obama’s ex-girlfriends had to say about him. Both of these ladies were pretty hard on the fathers of their children, and probably rightfully so. Here are a few things they told mommysdirtylittlesecret.com about dating these ego maniacs.
Josie on her relationship with Floyd
“Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a d***. I have forgiven him, I’m over it. I did my s***. I’ve hit him over the head with a Tonka truck when I found out he was cheating on me. We had a pretty volatile relationship. Anyone who knows us, knows that. For him to put another ring on another chick’s finger, then come over to my house and try to control me and who I’m having sex with (C.J. Watson)… I mean that’s just him. She ain’t the only one that got a ring. He the ring master, there’s a couple people that got a ring. He’s just about that life. I didn’t deserve the abuse, my kids didn’t deserve to see that. We have gotten into to it before but what was most disturbing is that my son had to get help for me because had no idea how long it was going to last. Floyd’s b****-a**friend was watching the whole time as he put his hands on me, he even tried to block my kid from leaving.”
On how long their relationship was violent (Next month Floyd will start serving a 90-day jail sentence for a 2010 incident when he assaulted Josie in front of their kids after he saw texts from NBA player C.J. Watson in her phone.)
“It started from the beginning, not the very, very beginning but it escalated. We started feeling like we were each other’s possessions. If I wasn’t violent with him, I’d get violent with the b*****s.”
Whether Floyd is a good father
“I hate to say it but yes Floyd is a good dad. The kids love him and are in Vegas with him right now for the Cotto fight.”
Floyd’s sex game and whether she’d sleep with him again
He’s boring in bed.
“Yes, but only if he had a drink first. Sober Floyd is boring and I like to have fun in bed!”
On her upcoming book
“It’s a book about my relationship with Floyd, we’ve known each other and been together since we were 16. Our relationship was very passionate with an incredible love but it was volatile. We tried running each other over with cars, pulling guns on each other… Crazy s***! We were extremely possessive of each other and I tell it ALL in the book! I’m finally in a better place where I can talk about it.”
Shaniqua is the mother of 50 Cent’s 15-year-old son, Marquise, and she had some interesting things to say about her past with the Queens rapper.
Her relationship with 50
It has its ups and downs. It’s a hard relationship to explain. He’s a bitter man, very bitter.
On whether she sued him for $50 million
“I didn’t sue him, he took me to court for child support, he sued me for defamation of character. The only time I tried to sue him is when he tried to evict me and his son from our home, the home he promised to give me.”
If 50 has ever been violent with her
“Yes. When he put his hands on me in front of my daughter is when I knew the relationship was over. I’d never fight any of the girls he was messing around behind my back with though. Hoes are going to be hoes. I did have to call Meagan Good once. She claimed 50 was just a friend and he was helping her to get over a break up. She played her part well, as a good mistress does.”
Whether 50 is a good father
“50 is a good provider, but a good father? No. He hasn’t been to one of his son’s games. In fact, the last time he saw his son was December. When we were together he helped raise my daughter along with our son, but when we were finally over it all stopped. He was no longer a father to his son. He thinks financially providing equates to being a dad, but it doesn’t.”
Thoughts on 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler
“50 is a bully, but he’s afraid of Chelsea, she’s bigger than him. As for him in bed…he’s okay.”
Whether she’d sleep with 50 again
“No, he’s hard enough to get rid of, that would just make it worse.”
Truly I think these ladies’ kids are too old and their relationships too far gone for them to still be talking stuff and airing their dirty laundry to the public but because these men are so arrogant and full of themselves, it’s a little refreshing to see somebody tell the truth about them (maybe, sorta kinda.)
