Yaya Mayweather Pleads Guilty To Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon!

Floyd Mayweather’s daughter, Yaya Mayweather has officially pleaded guilty to a 2020 brutal stabbing incident!

 Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following the stabbing of Lapattra Jacobs. According to Hip Hop Wired, court documents revealed Yaya entered a plea in Harris County Court for charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following the April 2020 incident.

In a forwarded statement, her attorney Kent Schaffer says, “We resolved the case between Iyanna and the State.”

“The agreement calls for Iyanna being 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. Although we believe that Iyanna was defending herself after being attacked, we thought this was the safest resolution for her. This is especially true since her boyfriend and his bodyguards refused to testify; probably due to their own legal problems.”

In April 2020, Mayweather and Jacobs got into a verbal altercation at NBA Youngboy’s (Kentrell DeSean Gaulden) residence. The verbal altercation shifted into the kitchen, where Mayweather grabbed two knives. Reportedly, Jacobs stepped toward Mayweather, causing her to rush Jacobs with one of the knives. Both women share children with the rapper.

June 16 is Mayweather’s sentencing date.
