Centric- 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."
The truth will set you free! Okay, fine, maybe in Floyd Mayweather's case it's his social status and $600 million dollar bank account that will set him free. However, the truth is still kind of important too, and don't you dare tell me that Money Mayweather is interested in anything else other than setting the record straight. Let's be honest, if Floyd had an ulterior motive other than the facts then he would just pull a Bill Clinton and go the "I did not have physical altercations with that woman!" route. Instead, he admitted that he's a scumbag, but just wanted to clear up what level of scumbag he actually was.
Listen, it's never right to put your hands on a woman. However, as the old saying goes, "I don't hit girls, but I will shake the shit out of a bitch". If you are going engage a woman physically as least do it on her terms. We are talking about an undefeated professional boxer that was pulling hair, twisting arms, and kicking. That just sounds like a typical girl fight to me. This would be like if Floyd Mayweather agreed to meet Ronda Rousey in the octagon. Fighting women is frowned upon, but if they want to fight then you have to fight on their terms. Seem like quite the compromise to me. Who knew that Floyd was so understanding? Who knew he was capable of winning a fight without dancing around a ring and throwing the occasional jab? I mean, I knew he could beat his opposition without throwing punches, but I'm pretty sure giving Indian burns is new to his repertoire. I can only imagine he learned that hair pulling move from one too many nights watching reality television with the girlfriend. Who knew that mind numbing television would come back to bite her in the ass?
No, Floyd Mayweather's domestic charges are not funny. However, clarifying that he "kicked" and "pulled hair" instead of "stomped" and "beat" her is at least a little comical. Especially now that she is free from his wrath. Nothing like admitting guilt, but making it sound better semantically as you do so. Jokes on you 50 Cent. Floyd Mayweather may be illiterate, but he can still successfully play with words from time to time.
