Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather, the undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather’s daughter, faces up to 20 years in prison for allegedly assaulting the mother of rapper NBA Youngboy’s child.
Mayweather, 21, was arrested in April 2020 after reportedly stabbing Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, the mother of NBA Youngboy’s child, at the rapper’s Houston residence and inflicting serious injuries. According to media reports, Mayweather has been charged with aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon.
Jacobs needed months to recuperate from her injuries. Worse, the tendons in her right hand may be permanently damaged, as Jacobs proved when she removed her cast in May 2020.
Meanwhile, in September 2020, Youngboy, 21, was arrested in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in connection with a large drug sweep. He was charged with illegally possessing firearms by a felon and possessing an unregistered handgun on one count. He’s been in jail since then, and a judge recently refused him bond again, agreeing with prosecutors that he’s a danger to the community.
While all of this was going on, Mayweather gave birth to Youngboy’s child in January 2021, which she celebrated on her Instagram page. Kantrell Lauden Jr. is their first child together, but he is the rapper’s seventh child by the age of 21. (He just turned 22 on Oct. 20, 2021).
