Iyanna Mayweather Pleads Guilty to Stabbing Mother of One

Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather has pleaded guilty in the stabbing incident involving the alleged mother of one of YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s children.

The daughter of championship and undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather pleaded guilty in Harris County Court in Houston for Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon following the April 3, 2020 incident. The incident happened inside YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s home. The 21-year-old also shares a son with NBA YoungBoy, who she was dating at the time of the stabbing incident.

Iyanna Mayweather admitted to “unlawfully, intentionally and unknowingly” causing “bodily injury to Lapattra Jacobs” by cutting her with a knife. While the second-degree felony charge Iyanna Mayweather has pleaded guilty to carries no more that 20 years behind bars and no less than two years, prosecutors have recommended six years deferred adjunction, which is sometimes offered to first-time offenders and is an alternative of community supervision instead of jail time.

It has also been suggested that Mayweather complete 40 hours of community service and she is forbidden from harassing, threatening or abusively contacting the victim, Lapattra Jacobs, who received a protective order against Mayweather in December of 2020. Iyanna Mayweather has also waived her right to appeal her case.

During time of the incident, NBA YoungBoy and Jacobs were at the Houston home together when Mayweather arrived at the property and was upset over Jacobs being at the residence. The two women got into a verbal dispute, which escalated into a physical altercation where Mayweather allegedly retrieved two knives from the kitchen and stabbed Jacobs twice.

Jacobs was transported to a nearby hospital, but was able to recount what transpired. YoungBoy Never Broke Again was detained by authorities, but later let go after being questioned.
