Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s 21-year-old daughter Yaya Mayweather is accused of stabbing a woman and will face a jury trial in February, according to The Neighborhood Talk. That source claimed that Mayweather has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and faces the possibility of a 20-year sentence if found guilty.

Mayweather is accused of assaulting Lapattra Jacobs in April 2020. Both Mayweather and Jacobs have children fathered by Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, a rapper with the stage name YoungBoy Never Broke Again. It is alleged that the stabbing occurred when Mayweather, Jacobs and Gaulden were involved in a heated argument.

In May 2020, Jacobs uploaded videos showing wounds she claimed were suffered during the stabbing.

Gaulden, 22, is currently awaiting trial on federal weapons charges. In 2020 he was arrested in Baton Rouge, LA on suspicion of distributing and manufacturing drugs and possession of stolen firearms.

Gaulden has prior arrests for assault, weapons violations, kidnapping and attempted murder.
