Chicago Bulls C.J. Watson has denied being the boyfriend of a woman who has an out-of-wedlock child with boxing great Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Watson’s name surfaced in a police report made after Mayweather reportedly hit and kicked the woman earlier this month.
But multiple sources close to C.J. — including his father Charles Watson — tell TMZ that the NBA player is only in a relationship with his longtime girlfriend Danielle — with whom he has a child.
C.J.’s dad — who says he talks to C.J. every day — also tells us, “I know for sure that Josie is not his girlfriend … she did some event planning for C.J., but other than that, they have no relationship whatsoever.” –via TMZ.
Point guards have to make good decisions all the time in the NBA, and Watson made another good one here by distancing himself from this mess. We realized that Mayweather didn’t want anything to do with Manny Pacquiao, but surely he’s man enough to punch someone that isn’t the mother of his child. Yeah, I realize that sounds ridiculous, having faith in humanity and all that.
