Yaya Mayweather sentenced to six years probation after pleading guilty to stabbing woman in 2020

– The daughter of world-famous boxer Floyd Mayweather has been sentenced following a violent altercation back in 2020.

According to court documents, 22-year-old Iyanna Mayweather pled guilty to the stabbing, which reportedly took place inside the home of her child’s father, NBA YoungBoy on April 4, 2020.

Mayweather, who was 19 at the time, pled guilty to an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. On Thursday, she received Deferred Adjudication of Guilt and was sentenced to six years of probation.

A representative for the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office said that Iyanna, also known as “Yaya,” was arrested at a Houston residence for felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon around 1 a.m. local time on Saturday morning, and taken to Houston’s Harris County jail. She was later released on bond.

The victim, a 35-year-old black female, suffered multiple lacerations to her arm and was transported via ambulance to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. The victim underwent surgery and is stable.

TMZ reports that Mayweather confronted YoungBoy and the victim at his Houston home, and said that she was YoungBoy’s fiancee. When the confrontation moved to the kitchen, Mayweather reportedly attacked the victim with two knives.

YoungBoy didn’t address the reports directly, though he did tweet “Hold it down for your love one’s up in heaven and they will do the same I’m very blessed and protected if you ask me,” he wrote.

On Thursday, December 16, Yaya, whose real name is Iyanna Mayweather, learned her fate in the aftermath of the violent altercation. According to court documents, she received Deferred Adjudication of Guilt and was sentenced to six years of probation.

Yaya was arrested at a Houston residence in April 2020 following an altercation with NBA YoungBoy a.k.a. YoungBoy Never Broke Again's ex and baby mama Lapattra Lashai Jacobs. At the time, she visited the rapper's house and confronted the woman. As the argument escalated and moved to the kitchen, Yaya reportedly grabbed two knives. When Lapattra reportedly stepped towards Yaya, the latter stabbed Lapattra multiple times.

Yaya escaped up to 20 years in prison when she pleaded guilty in April of this year. At the time, she admitted to "unlawfully, intentionally and unknowingly" causing "bodily injury to Lapattra Jacobs" by cutting her with a knife.

Her attorney Kent Schaffer said in a statement to XXL, "We resolved the case between Iyanna and the State. The agreement calls for Iyanna being on deferred adjudication for a period of 6 years after which she will have no felony conviction and the case will be dismissed. She is eligible to have the deferred adjudication end after two years pending her good behavior."

"Although we believe that Iyanna was defending herself after being attacked, we thought this was the safest resolution for her," the attorney added. "This is especially true since her boyfriend and his bodyguards refused to testify; probably due to their own legal problems."

However, in October, she reportedly changed her plea from guilty to nolo contendere (no contest). The no contest plea allows defendants to accept the criminal punishment but not admit guilt. It's unclear if Yaya changed her plea back to guilty again prior to her sentencing.
