Floyd Mayweather's daughter arrested

Yaya was arrested on April 4, 2020, for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend and baby mama. She reportedly went to her boyfriend YoungBoy's house and found his ex, Lapattra Jacobs, with him in the house.

Allegedly, Yaya had told Jacobs to leave the house because she did not like the idea of Jacobs being around her future husband, referring to herself as YoungBoy's fiancé. After being stabbed, Lapattra allegedly lay on the floor, which was where paramedics found her when they arrived.

Lapattra was taken to hospital, and the injuries were deemed to be non-life-threatening injuries. However, she required emergency surgery and was hospitalized.

Yaya was arrested at around 1:30 a.m. and was held in Houston's Harris County jail. YoungBoy, who was home when the incident happened, was briefly handcuffed before being released.

Iyanna was charged with aggravated assault but was released on a $30,000 bail, which YoungBoy paid. She was also required to stay at least 1,000 feet away from Jacobs. She is due back in court in August 2021 for her sentence. Speculations are that she may get a fair sentence since this is her first offence.
