- Floyd Mayweather’s daughter Iyanna has reached a plea deal in her involvement in a stabbing case two years ago
- Iyanna will be sentenced to six years in probation
Iyanna Mayweather, also known as “Yaya,” the oldest daughter of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr., allegedly stabbed Lapattra Lashai Jacobs AKA NBA YoungBoy’s ex-fiance in 2020. After two years of facing charges, Iyanna has now pleaded guilty.
Iyanna has appeared in a Houston court last week and agreed to a plea deal in connection to the aforementioned stabbing incident, multiple outlets reported.
The 21-year-old pleaded guilty to “unlawfully, intentionally and unknowingly” causing injury “with a knife” to Jacobs, a 26-year-old woman who also had an affair with rap artist and Iyanna’s ex-boyfriend, Kentrell DeSean Gaulden (NBA YoungBoy).
Court documents stated that as part of the plea deal Iyanna agreed on, she has waived her right to appeal and will be sentenced to up to six years of probation on June 16. The probation could include community service, restitution, or a combination of the two.
Mayweather’s attorney, Kent Schaffer said that the plea deal with prosecutors dictates that if Iyanna, who originally faces a 20-year sentence in prison, completes her probation without any incident, the case will be dismissed.
“We resolved the case between Iyanna and the State,” Schaffer told XXL. “The agreement calls for Iyanna to be 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.”
The other lawsuit
Jacobs, who suffered non-life threatening injuries to her hands after the assault, has also filed a lawsuit against Iyanna and Gaulden, who has fathered both their children.
In it, Jacobs alleged Iyanna and Gaulden for causing her physical pain and mental anguish, physical impairment, medical costs, loss of earnings and disfigurement.
In his defense, Gaulden insists that he wasn’t responsible to any of the aforementioned damages to Jacobs as Iyanna was the sole perpetrator of the attack.
