Iyanna Mayweather has been arrested and taken to the Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas, according to TMZ. This news comes as a result of an alleged violent encounter between Mayweather and a woman named Lapattra Lashai Jacobs that took place early morning on Saturday, April 4. Both women are said to be romantically connected to rapper NBA YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden.
Police purportedly told TMZ that Mayweather -- the daughter of famed boxing legend Floyd Mayweather -- arrived at NBA YoungBoy's home, finding him in the company of Jacobs. There, Mayweather reportedly told Jacobs -- who TMZ describes as the mother to one of NBA YoungBoy's five children -- that she was his fiancee, and that Jacobs should leave immediately. Refusing to do so, Jacobs apparently told Mayweather to leave the house, and a fight ensued.
The women made their way to the kitchen and things escalated quickly. According to the report, Jacobs allegedly advanced toward Mayweather, who was grasping a pair of knives. Mayweather allegedly charged at her, stabbing her twice. According to sources, first responders on the scene found Jacobs lying on the kitchen floor, and her current medical condition is unknown.
News of Mayweather's arrest comes less than one month after she lost her mother.
