I sat down with Josie Harris and Shaniqua Tompkins, the mothers of Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent‘s kids, and got the ladies to spill all the juicy and private details of their relationships with these men. They have been pretty much silent up to now, but are ready to tell their story — and they don’t hold back! Floyd has more than Miguel Cotto to worry about tonight!
Shaniqua Tompkins is the beautiful mother to a 15-year-old son, Marquise, whose father is 50 Cent. Josie Harris is the gorgeous woman who shares three children with famed boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., they are 8, 11, and 12-years-old. Shaniqua and Josie just recently became friends with each other but it seems they have a strong bond. Neither of these women came off as bitter baby mamas, in fact they were laughing and smiling throughout the whole interview. Although these two women are no longer with these men, they did however spend a good portion of time with them, before and after their claim to fame. So I had to ask…
Patricia Dean: How is your relationship with 50 right now?
Shaniqua Tompkins: It has its ups and downs. It’s a hard relationship to explain. He’s a bitter man, very bitter.
PD: Why is he bitter? Because you tried to sue him for $50 million?
ST: 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.
PD: Why did he sue you for defamation?
ST: Because at the time the house burned down, I was asked in public who I thought burned my house down and I said he (50 Cent) did. When your money’s very long you can pay someone to do something. But that’s still you doing it, you’re just as guilty.
PD: Do you hold a grudge against him for that?
ST: No, because God wants you to forgive. I just had to let it go. Call it Karma, it all comes back. I don’t have to be mean or vindictive; we all get what’s coming to us.
PD: Are you still in love with him?
ST: No, I love 50 like a cousin maybe; I’m not in love though.
PD: Josie, how’s your relationship with Floyd? With all the cheating and domestic violence, do you forgive him?
Josie Harris: 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 bitch-ass friend was watching the whole time as he put his hands on me, he even tried to block my kid from leaving.
PD: Who was it? Do we know who this ‘friend’ is?
JH: He was a friend, we won’t say any names. Somebody in Floyd’s camp, who is very relevant. I don’t even feel comfortable with my kids around him because I think he’s a snake. Any real man that see another man seeing red and putting his hands on a woman should intervene, he didn’t so s***.
PD: So where do you stand with C.J. Watson now?
JH: He put the running shoes on. Floyd was ringing his phone, C.J. even had to change his number. But he is a very nice guy – with a very controlling mother.
PD: How long was the violence in you and Floyd’s relationship going on?
JH: 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.
PD: How about you Shaniqua, did 50 ever get violent with you?
SH: 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.
PD: Are Floyd and 50 Cent good fathers?
JH: 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.
ST: 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.
PD: Now that your relationships with Floyd and 50 Cent are over, do you two have boyfriends?
ST: Yes and he’s not intimidated by 50 Cent. I’ve been with him for about 6 years now.
JH: No, haven’t found that yet.
PD: Are you looking?
JH: Hell yeah I’m looking!!
PD: How about 50 and Chelsea Handler? I heard she said he is ‘adequate’ in bed, and surprisingly he had no response to that. Is it true? How is he in bed?
ST: 50 is a bully, but he’s afraid of Chelsea, she’s bigger than him. As for him in bed…he’s okay.
PD: How about Floyd, how’s he in bed?
JH: He’s boring in bed.
PD: How do you two feel about 50 and Floyd’s relationship?
JH: You mean their bromance? They’ve been friends a long time. (Josie and Shaniqua look at each other and laugh.)
PD: Josie you are working on a book…tell me about it?
JH: 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.

PD: Wow, you’re not worried about legal repercussions or backlash from the book?
JH: I told Floyd to suck my d***. Seriously. It’s not about Floyd or me, it’s about the kids and making money to provide for and support them. Why wouldn’t he give me that as the mother of his children? I want him to write the forward to the book! If Floyd has any type of bio done, remember we share 3 children and were together from when he was 19, up until last year, so I will definitely be part of his story, why I can’t I tell mine?
PD: Floyd is facing jail time immediately after tonight’s fight for a domestic violence incident involving you…how do you feel about that?
JH: I never want to send a loved one to jail. I hope he gets the help he needs. I wrote a letter to the judge asking him not to make him do time.
(Shantel Jackson, left, and Daphne Joy)
PD: Both 50 and Floyd are publicly with other women…how does that make you feel?
ST: 50 still won’t admit to me he is dating her (Daphne Joy). He won’t talk about her or them dating. He does NOT acknowledge her to me, crazy! She will learn. (Laughs)
JH: Ms. Dade, as in Dade County, Florida, where she’s from (Shantel Jackson) is in it for the money. She is controlled. Let me tell you how crazy it all is… they announced on the radio that they are getting married on my birthday! C’mon…he knows what he’s doing and what type of woman agrees to that?
(50 Cent and Chelsea Handler)
PD: Would you sleep with 50 again?
ST: No, he’s hard enough to get rid of, that would just make it worse.
PD: Would you sleep with Floyd again?
JH: Yes, but only if he had a drink first. Sober Floyd is boring and I like to have fun in bed!
