Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather, 19, was arrested earlier this month after allegedly stabbing Lapattra Jacobs, who shares a child with her boyfriend, rapper NBA YoungBoy.
Floyd Mayweather’s 19-year-old daughter could spend decades in prison after being charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
An altercation which reportedly occurred at the rapper’s Houston home on Saturday April 4, prompted a physical fight between the women.
Where Mayweather went to the kitchen picked up a knife and stabbed the Jacobs in the arms.
Iyanna Mayweather was arrested and booked into Harris County Jail after her alleged victim was rushed to a nearby hospital and underwent emergency surgery on her arms.
Mayweather was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony that can carry a heavy sentence.
Mayweather could be imposed with a $10,000 fine or receive up to 99 years in prison.
It’s unlikely she will receive the maximum sentence, as she doesn’t appear to have a criminal history.
Mayweather’s lawyer Kurt Schaffer revealed that: “Iyanna is doing fine; although she remains shaken by this unfortunate incident.”
The Kurt Schaffer confirmed Mayweather will plead not guilty to the charge and he expects her to be “fully vindicated.”
