Josie was pronounced dead at the scene after she was found unresponsive in her car.
She was with Mayweather from 1995 up until 2010 when they finally permanently parted ways in a very messy separation.
Toward the end of their relationship, the undefeated retired boxer spent some months in prison after being accused of domestic violence towards Josie.

The couple sired three children together - Koraun, 20, Zion Shamaree, 18, and Jirah, 15.
Mayweather went unbeaten all through his professional career - winning all 50 of his 50 fights with 27 of them ending in knockouts.
