Yaya Mayweather’s relationship with rapper NBA YoungBoy is nothing if not complicated. The two have an off-and-on romance that tends to make headlines for all the wrong reasons. But no one anticipated the news that broke on April 4. That day, multiple outlets reported that Mayweather had been arrested after allegedly stabbing another woman over the controversial rap star.

What to know about Yaya Mayweather and her relationship with NBA YoungBoy

She was born as Iyanna Mayweather to boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and entrepreneur Melissa Brim in 2000. She seemingly began dating NBA YoungBoy, a 20-year-old rapper from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, earlier in 2019. A father of at least four, he is best known for his 2018 single “Outside Today.”

Their relationship ended dramatically towards the end of 2019 when an incident led to Mayweather allegedly sliting his tires and NBA YoungBoy dissing her in the song “Dirty Iyanna.” But they appeared to make up just before the start of 2020.
