Yaya (Iyanna) Mayweather, daughter of Floyd and Money Mayweather was reportedly arrested on April 4 on charges of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
Yaya (Iyanna) Mayweather, Floyd Mayweather's 19-year-old daughter, was reportedly arrested on April 4 after she stabbed a woman over her fiance rapper NBA Youngboy. She was charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was detained by Houston authorities for stabbing Youngboy's baby mother.
According to TMZ, a police source was quoted as saying that Yaya stabbed Lapattra Lashai Jacobs at Youngboy's residence where she was arrested on Saturday at 1.30 am. An argument ensued between Yaya and Jacobs over Youngboy as Yaya said Jacobs should leave and she refused. The argument moved to the kitchen where Yaya took hold of two knives and stabbed Jacobs with the same.
Later, Yaya claimed to the police that Jacobs had incited the attack by pulling Yaya's hair outside the house and then running into the kitchen where she was stabbed. Since news of the same was reported, Twitter was abuzz with fans reacting to Yaya's arrest and the majority of them could not believe that Yaya would go to this extent over Youngboy.
One fan wrote, "I still can’t believe that Yaya Mayweather just stabbed a bitch over a [expletive] with seven baby mommas and herpes." Another fan reacted with harsh criticism and said, "Yaya Mayweather's dum***s really just destroyed her whole life and stabbed someone over a b*m like NBA Youngboy???? Someone with seven baby mommas and herpes??! How can you have a dad like Floyd Mayweather and still be moving like such a f*****g loser."
Another fan observed, "Yaya almost killed somebody over a [expletive] with herpes, a dent in his head, and god knows how many kids just to be arrested and possibly face 20+ years in prison."
Fans also shared GIFs on Twitter along with captions that spoke about how Yaya showed exactly what one shouldn't do if their man was caught cheating and one of them also wrote "Don't be Yaya" while speaking of her predicament. Another Twitter user also said the same and wrote, "Ladies, the [expletive] that’s currently your favorite at the moment probably won’t be your favorite in a couple of years... hell, maybe even a couple of months. Don’t be like Yaya."
Some are also feeling sad for Yaya for having chosen the "road life". One fan wrote, "This topic easily hits home because we all know a Yaya that is close to us. We all know a woman who has put her safety in detriment because of the centralization of the male gaze. And it’s really not too late to realize it ain’t worth it."
As of now, details regarding Floyd and Money Mayweather's daughter Yaya's bail hasn't been revealed. Jacobs was taken to the hospital and is said to be in critical condition and there hasn't been any update about her since.
