Floyd Mayweather Opens Up About Daughter Yaya’s Pregnancy After Major Drama With NBA YoungBoy
Boxer Floyd Mayweather confirmed that his 20-year-old daughter Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather is expecting her first child with rapper NBA YoungBoy. The pair have had a relationship full of drama after Yaya was previously arrested for getting into a fight with one of his baby mamas.
Floyd Mayweather Confirmed Yaya Mayweather Is Expecting Her First Child
In an appearance on the radio show “Hollywood Unlocked,” Floyd spoke candidly about Yaya’s pregnancy. “Always want the best,” he said. “If that makes her happy, then we’re happy…me and her mother are happy.”
He was also asked about her relationship with NBA YoungBoy. “What I try not to do is be in her personal business because once she’s no longer under my roof, then you know what? it’s between her and her better half.” He continued on to say “As far as NBA… I look at NBA YoungBoy as a child. I can’t get upset with a kid like that. It could’ve been one of those days for him.”
Yaya and the rapper have had their fair share of ups and downs over the course of their relationship. For the past two years, their relationship drama has been broadcast on social media for the world to see. Back in April, Yaya was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the attack on NBA Youngboy’s baby mama, Lapattra Jacobs.
She found the pair together in his home and that did not fly with her. They got into an altercation that turned violent. After she was stabbed by Yaya and had her hair pulled, emergency workers found Lapattra bleeding on the floor at the scene. She claimed on her YouTube channel that she lost 90% of the nerves in her left arm and posed wearing a bandage and a sling in an Instagram video.
The Couple Have Always Been The Subject Of Cheating Allegations
Yaya’s case will be pursued in court after she was released from jail with a bail set at $30,000. There are conflicting reports about how much jail time Yaya could be facing but she might just get a slap on the wrist, especially now with news of her pregnancy.
In April, YoungBoy was accused of cheating on Yaya with a woman named Dre. He posted an Instagram video with her in it which had people questioning his intentions. Soon after, he posted a video with Yaya, trying to cover his tracks. While the couple was on a break, YoungBoy who refers to Yaya as his “wife” began dating 18-year-old Youtuber Jazlyn Mychelle. He and Yaya were soon seen back together right after.
YoungBoy is already believed to have fathered five children though there are several other women who have come forward claiming he has fathered their children as well. He was arrested in September on drug and firearm charges in Louisiana. His attorney has maintained that he is “not guilty of any crimes.”
