Iyanna Mayweather, the 19-year-old daughter of the retired boxer Floyd Mayweather, has reportedly been arrested on suspicion of a stabbing.
Court documents said Iyanna Mayweather, a singer and social media figure also known as “Yaya,” was arrested in connection over an “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon,” NBC reported.
At approximately 1.30 a.m. on Saturday, Mayweather was taken to a jail in Houston’s Harris County after a 25-year-old woman was stabbed some hours before.
The woman, who was hospitalized, sustained injuries that were not deemed life-threatening, a police official said.
Hours before, there was apparently an altercation between Mayweather, her former partner – the 20-year-old rapper NBA Youngboy, and the musician’s current fiancee Lapattra Lashai Jacobs.
At one point during the argument, Mayweather was holding two knives, according to TMZ. TMZ reported that Jacobs said she was stabbed at least twice, once with each knife by Mayweather, who said Jacobs had pulled her hair, inciting the incident.
NBC added that Mayweather “was released from jail on a $US30,000 bond.”
She will be in court on Monday.
