The battle continues between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and ex-girlfriend Josie Harris as they go head-to-head in a $20 million lawsuit for defamation.
Harris filed the suit back in May, accusing the undefeated boxer of making slanderous claims during an interview with Katie Couric in which he alleged Harris used drugs. The claim was in relation to the former couple's September 2010 domestic violence incident, which resulted in Mayweather's conviction and 90-day prison sentence.
In new court documents obtained by TMZ, Mayweather argues that he didn't defame Harris because he has medical records that prove she took Xanax, Wellbutrin and marijuana. He also alleges she testified in 2004 that she took half an Ecstasy pill before going to a club.
The report continues:
"Floyd also makes an odd ... and perhaps petty ... distinction regarding whether he lied when he told Couric he didn't "kick, stomp, and beat" Harris. He says Harris herself wrote in an email ... 'Floyd pulled my hair, dragged me, twisted my arm and kicked me.'
His point -- she mentions a kick, but no 'stomp' or 'beat' -- so, technically he did NOT lie to Couric."
As explained in the interview, Mayweather said he merely "[restrained] a woman that was on drugs."
