Iyanna Mayweather, daughter of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr was arrested on Saturday after stabbing a woman over a rapper. According to TMZ, Iyanna has been arrested for felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Iyanna stabbed a 25-year old woman over NBA YoungBoy ( Young Boy Never Broke Again). Iyanna Mayweather is currently at Houston’s Harris County jail. As per TMZ, the victim is identified as Lapattra Lashai Jacobs.
According to law enforcement agencies, Lappattra Jacobs was present with NBA young boy at their home when Iyanna arrived. Iyanna then told Jacobs that she was NBA YoungBoy’s fiancee and that she should leave the house.
The pair later got into an argument that moved into the kitchen. As per reports, Iyanna allegedly had two knives in her hands which she used to charge at Jacobs.
Harris County Constable’s Office reported that the “incident began as a verbal altercation between two women which escalated into a physical altercation.”
They added, “There was a male witness who was briefly detained without incident and once it was determined that he was strictly a witness, he was released.”
Jacobs later told the authorities that she didn’t feel the first stab wound, but Iyanna later charged at her with the second knife stabbing her again. In the meantime, Iyanna has been released on bail. NBA YoungBoy was also detained as a precautionary measure.
NBA young boy then took to Twitter to post a cryptic 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.” NBA YoungBoy wrote on twitter.
Times are tough at the Mayweather household right now. Last month, Floyd Mayweather lost his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris (also mother of Iyanna Mayweather) and his uncle Roger Mayweather.
