In April 2020, Floyd Mayweather‘s daughter, Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather, ran into some very serious legal issues. This was regarding her stabbing Lapattra Jacobs, who is one of the mothers of rapper NBA Youngboy’s children.
At the time, Yaya was at Youngboy’s Houston home, as Jacobs was also present. An argument soon turned heated, and it resulted in Jacobs being stabbed in the arm. Yaya ended up being arrested by police, for suspicion of aggravated assault, with a deadly weapon, as stated in court documents obtained by The Blast.
At the time, Yaya was 19, and was taken to a jail in the Houston area. The injuries caused to Jacobs were said to be non-life-threatening. Yaya went on to be released, on a $30,000 bond.
Mayweather Facing 20 Years In Prison
Reports are now surfacing, that Yaya could be spending 20 years in prison, due to this stabbing. During the time of the incident last spring, Yaya was allegedly facing 99 years in prison. Due to the lack of any previous criminal history though, 99 years appeared to be a very unlikely result.
Yaya is being represented by Kurt Schaffer, who is one of the best lawyers in the state. If she were to be handed down a 99-year sentence, a $10,000 fine would’ve been included. Notable celebrities that Schaffer has represented, have been Chace Crawford, J. Prince, and rappers Slim Thug and Pimp C.
The Harris County District Attorney also stated that Yaya “unlawfully, intentionally and knowingly caused bodily injury to Lapattra Jacobs…by cutting (her) with a knife, and (she) used and exhibited a deadly weapon, namely a knife.”
Yaya Had A Child With NBA Youngboy This Year
At the top of 2021, Yaya also took to her Instagram stories, to reveal that the child she had been pregnant with, was finally born. She had this child with Youngboy, as they dated for most of 2020. In Yaya’s IG post, the photo contained a photo of the baby’s foot. The gender of the baby ended up being confirmed as a boy, but Yaya has still yet to show off any photos which display the child’s face.

Yaya Apparently Moved Back In With Her Father
Earlier this year, Yaya also discussed on Instagram, of the possibility of moving back in, with her father, Floyd. She shared multiple Instagram story posts of Floyd holding her child, as she pondered of the idea of moving back in. It was never fully confirmed by Yaya that she is back in Money Mayweather’s home, but is definitely still close with him.
Last fall, Mayweather spoke with Hollywood Unlocked, and was fine with Yaya being pregnant, at her age. At the time, the legendary boxer acknowledged that she wasn’t living under his roof anymore, so he wasn’t going to be so critical of her decisions.
“Always want the best.” said Floyd, regarding Yaya. “If that makes her happy, then we’re happy — me and her mother [Melissia Rene Brim] are happy. What I try not to do is be in her personal business because once she’s no longer under my roof, then you know what? it’s between her and her better half.”
