TMZ reported that the 19-year-old was arrested for ‘felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon’ after arguing with the mother of rapper NBA YoungBoy’s child.
According to the media entity, the 19-year-old daughter of the famous professional boxer was arrested on Saturday at 1:30 a.m. and is currently in Houston’s Harris County jail.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Iyanna arrived at the rapper’s home and found him with Lapattra Lashai Jacobs.
The two women allegedly got into a spat with Iyanna claiming she was NBA Youngboy’s fiancee and that Lapattra needed to leave.
Their argument reportedly moved into the kitchen where Iyanna armed herself with two knives.
She allegedly “charged at Lapattra with one of the knives” after Lapattra stepped closer to her, it is claimed.
Apparently, the woman didn’t feel the first stab wound and claimed to police officers that Iyanna “charged at her with the second knife, stabbing her again.” Lapattra was stabbed on both arms, The Blast reported.
The Harris County Precinct 4 Constables Office then received a 911 call at 6:52 pm for a disturbance at the Texas home of NBA Youngboy, The Blast claimed.
EMTs found Lapattra on the floor before taking her to the hospital and performing emergency surgery on both her arms.
NBA YoungBoy – whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden – was reportedly also handcuffed by cops as an assumed precautionary measure, before being released.
TMZ claimed that Iyanna told cops that the other woman “incited her by initially pulling her hair outside the house and then running into the kitchen, where the confrontation went down.”
She also claimed that “she had never met her before.”
The 20-year-old rapper and Iyanna are currently engaged.
Lapattra is one of NBA YoungBoy’s three baby mamas – he has four children, though he recently claimed that one of them was not his biological son.
NBA YoungBoy is no stranger to being in handcuffs as he was arrested in November 2016 after being accessed of “jumping out of a vehicle and opening fire on a group of people” on a South Baton Rouge street.
He was charged with two counts of attempted murder and was in jail from December 2016 to August 2017 for attempted first-degree murder.
Facing two counts of attempted first-degree murder, he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of aggravated assault with a firearm and was sentenced to a suspended 10-year prison term and three years of active probation.
He was arrested again in February 2018 for allegedly committing assault, weapons violations and kidnapping.
He was released a month later on a $75,000 bail.
A judge officially terminated YoungBoy’s probation for two counts of attempted murder in December 2019.
