Iyanna "Yaya" Mayweather was arrested earlier this month after allegedly stabbing Lapattra Jacobs, who shares a child with Mayweather's boyfriend, YoungBoy Never Broke Again. The incident reportedly occurred at around 1:30 a.m. last Saturday, when Mayweather demanded Jacobs to leave the rapper's Houston home. Jacobs refused and demanded Mayweather to leave, which prompted a physical fight between the women.
Law enforcement told TMZ that the altercation moved into YoungBoy's kitchen, where Mayweather grabbed two knives and charged at the mother. The altercation resulted in Jacob's hospitalization and Mayweather's arrest.
According to The Blast, Mayweather was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony that can carry a heavy sentence. If convicted on the charge, Mayweather could be slapped with a $10,000 fine or receive up to 99 years in prison. The Blast points out that it's unlikely she will receive the maximum sentence, as she doesn't appear to have a criminal history. It's also worth noting Mayweather is being represented by Kurt Schaffer, a famed attorney who has worked for celebrities like Slim Thug, Pimp C, and Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J Prince.
"Iyanna is doing fine; although she remains shaken by this unfortunate incident," Schaffer told Bossip.
The attorney confirmed Mayweather will plead not guilty to the charge and he expects her to be "fully vindicated." Mayweather is reportedly due back in court in August.
Jacobs addressed the incident in an Instagram Story on Thursday, writing: "No I'm not ok Im really fucked up in the head. I hate to say it. Can y'all just leave me alone. I never wanted this attention or watever y'all call it. Ps y'all want be seeing me. I'm kinda glad I don't have a phone."
