George Floyd’s girlfriend broke into tears as she spoke out about the good and the bad memories she shared with her boyfriend in Derek Chauvin’s trial.
Speaking out about her life with George, Courteney Ross recalled the struggles her boyfriend was going through as well as the beautiful memories, including one of her favorite stories which tells how the pair met back in August 2017.
In her emotional testimony, Ross revealed how she and Floyd started growing closer to each other after meeting at the Salvation Army Harbor Light Center where the 46-year-old worked as a security guard when Ross arrived to check on her son’s father.
“Floyd came up to me. Floyd had this great, deep Southern voice, raspy. ‘You OK, Sis?’ he said. I wasn’t OK. He said, ‘Can I pray with you?’” 45-year-old Ross recalled.
“We’d been through so much, my sons and I. And this kind person asks if he can pray with me. It was so sweet … We had our first kiss in the lobby.”
While the couple briefly separated at the beginning of 2020, they were back in each other’s arms by March, whereas they would allegedly spend time together on a daily basis.
Calling Floyd a “mama’s boy,” Ross admitted that the death of George’s mother in May 2018 left him devastated and “heartbroken.”
“Floyd is what I would call a mama’s boy. I could tell, from the minute I met him,” she added as recordings played at the trial revealed her boyfriend had called out to his mom over 20 times when officers tried to arrest him and when he was lying on the ground with Derek Chauvin’s knee on top of him.
While testifying, Ross also revealed how George loved to stay active by exercising and playing sports with people from the neighborhood. She also admitted both she and George had been suffering from drug addiction.
“Floyd and I both suffered from opiate addiction. We both suffered from chronic pain. Mine was in my neck. His was in his back,” Ross added.
“We both had prescriptions. After prescriptions were filled, we got addicted, and we both tried, very hard, to break the addictions, many times.”
The trial continues.
