One of Floyd Mayweather’s daughters was arrested in Texas over the weekend in connection to a young woman’s stabbing, according to recent reports.
Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather, 19, was taken into custody at around 1:30 a.m. Saturday on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, NBC News reports. Mayweather is alleged to have been involved in an altercation that resulted in a 25-year-old woman getting stabbed, local authorities confirmed to the outlet.
The alleged victim's injuries were not life-threatening, and she was taken to a hospital, where she underwent surgery.
First responders were called to a private residence at around 7 p.m. to treat an injured individual, and they were the ones to notify police that a violent altercation may have occurred, according to NBC News.
The alleged altercation is said to have taken place at the Houston home of rapper NBA YoungBoy, according to TMZ, who first reported the arrest. The 20-year-old rapper, whose legal name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, was at home with the victim, Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, when Mayweather arrived and claimed to be Gaulden’s fiancée, unnamed sources told the outlet.
Mayweather told Jacobs, who has a child with Gaulden, to leave and an argument ensued — with Mayweather allegedly rushing at Jacobs with two knives and stabbing her multiple times in the arm, according to TMZ.
However, Mayweather told authorities that it was Jacobs — whom she had never met before — who initiated the altercation when they were both outside of the house by pulling her hair and then fleeing inside, the outlet reports.
Authorities may have confirmed that the rapper was present during the incident, with Capt. Jonathan Zitzmann of the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office telling NBC News, “I can confirm that one of the witnesses interviewed by police at the scene is named Kentrell.”
Authorities confirmed on social media that they arrested Mayweather after responding to a call regarding an in-progress assault. She was booked at the Harris County Jail and her bond was set at $30,000. She has since been released after posting bond, and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, April 6, according to NBC News.
