Mayweather’s attorney, Kent Schaffer, spoke with XXL about Yaya’s plea on Wednesday, stating: “We resolved the case between Iyanna and the State,” Schaffer said. 

“The agreement calls for Iyanna to be on deferred adjudication for a period of 6 years after which she will have no felony conviction and the case will be dismissed. She is eligible to have the deferred adjudication end after two years pending her good behavior.” the attorney added.

In April 2020, YoungBoy and Jacobs were at his home when Iyanna arrived at the house. A heated argument escalated to the point where they were in the kitchen and Mayweather grabbed two knives.

Jacobs reportedly stepped towards Mayweather leading to Iyanna to assault her with one of the knives. Jacobs told police that she didn’t feel the first knife stabbing her, but then Mayweather stabbed her with asecond knife.

He got a cult-like following. … I look at him just like one of my sons. I only want the best for him and I don’t want him having beef with anyone.” Floyd added.
