Floyd Mayweather’s daughter Yaya is facing an extensive prison stint over her alleged participation in a particularly violent crime.
Yaya was originally arrested in April 2020 over an alleged stabbing that occurred involving Lapattra Jacobs, the ex-girlfriend of her boyfriend, rapper NBA Youngboy.
As noted by TMZ, the purported stabbing happened while “the alleged victim and NBA Youngboy were at his home.” Shortly thereafter, Yaya arrived and told Jacobs that “she was Youngboy’s fiancee and Jacobs should leave the house.” Instead, Jacobs told Yaya to leave.
That’s when the train went off the tracks.
The confrontation reportedly moved into the kitchen, where Yaya allegedly got hold of two knives. Jacobs then reportedly “stepped toward” Yaya, leading to Yaya apparently charging “at her with one of the knives.”
Jacobs would later tell authorities that “she didn’t feel the first knife wound,” prompting Yaya to stab her again. She would later document her injuries in a social media video:
Yaya was ultimately charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree crime that is punishable by a prison sentence of 2 to 20 years in Texas.

Pretrial in this case is scheduled for Feb. 2022.
For what it’s worth, the situation did not seem to damage Yaya’s relationship with NBA Youngboy.
As far as Floyd goes, he hasn’t really weighed in on his daughter’s woes. Between fending off accusations of hosting a rigged fight with Logan Paul and trying to find his next big payday, the legendary boxer appears to have problems of his own.
What will ultimately happen to Yaya when her case goes to trial? Time will tell.
