Floyd Mayweather’s 19-year-old daughter, Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather, was reportedly arrested in Houston on Saturday (April 4) for allegedly stabbing one of NBA Youngboy’s baby’s mothers during a violent incident that reportedly took place at the 20-year-old rapper’s home. According to TMZ Sports, NBA Youngboy and the victim, Lapattra Jacobs, were inside the home when Iyanna showed up claiming to be NBA Youngboy’s fiancée and an argument erupted between the two women.
Jacobs allegedly told Iyanna to leave the home but the argument moved its way into the kitchen. Iyanna was reportedly brandishing two knives and attacked Jacobs who was later hospitalized. Her condition is unknown.
“Hold it down for your loved one’s up in heaven and they will do the same. I’m very blessed and protected if you ask me,” NBAYoungboy tweeted on Saturday afternoon alongside a cryptic post to his Instagram Story that read in part, “If I tweet don’t refer it to some p**y shit.”
Iyanna was apprehended at 1:30 a.m. on Saturday and taken to Houston’s Harris County Jail where she was reportedly charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She seemingly referred to Youngboy as her “fiancé” in an Instagram post in January.

The teenager is the daughter of Floyd and his ex-girlfriend, Melissa Brim. The boxing champion also shared three children with his ex, Josie Harris, who was found dead inside a parked car in the driveway of her Southern California home last month. Harris’ cause of death has yet to be revealed.
Kobe Bryant will be posthumously inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the organization announced on Saturday (April 4). The late NBA legend joins the 2020 class of nine inductees which include NBA Finals MVP Tim Duncan, 15-time NBA All-Star and nine-time NBA All-Defensive First Team Kevin Garnett, and 10-time WNBA All-Star and four-time Olympic gold medalist, Tamika Catchings.
“The Class of 2020 is undoubtedly one of the most historic of all time and the talent and social influence of these nine honorees is beyond measure,” John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, said in a statement. “In 2020, the basketball community has suffered the unimaginable loss of iconic figures Commissioner David Stern and Kobe Bryant, as well as the game itself due to COVID-19.
“We have also banded together like never before in appreciation of the game and those who have made it the uniting force it is today. Today we thank the Class of 2020 for all they have done for the game of basketball and we look forward to celebrating them at Enshrinement in August.”
The 2020 class will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame on Aug. 29 in Springfield, Mass. The date falls six days after what would have been Bryant’s 42nd birthday. The retired Lakers star died in a helicopter crash in January alongside his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, and seven others.
Kobe’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, called the Hall of Fame election the “peak of his NBA career” during a FaceTime call with ESPN. “It’s an incredible accomplishment and honor, and we’re extremely proud of him. Every accomplishment that he had as an athlete was a stepping stone to be here.
“Obviously we wish that he was here with us to celebrate,” Vanessa continued. “We’re incredibly proud of him. And there’s some solace in know that he was probably going to be apart of the 2020 Hall of Fame class.”
"We're incredibly proud of him."

A Detroit bus driver died from coronavirus two weeks after making a Facebook Live post calling out a passenger for coughing several times on the bus without covering her mouth. The death of Jason Hargrove, a Transportation Equipment Operator for the Detroit Department of Transportation, was announced by Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan on Thursday (April 2).
“He knew his life was being put in jeopardy -- even though he was going to work for the citizens of Detroit every day -- by somebody who just didn’t care and now he’s gone,” Duggan said.
The Amalgamated Transit Union also tweeted a message confirming Hargrove’s death. Hargrove belonged to the Union since 2016 and was one of two AUT members to die from COVID-19. The second victim, Joseph Madore, was a paratransit operator for First Transit, Greater Hartford Transit District.

Hargrove vented about his safety being at risk in an 8-minute video posted on March 21. “This coronavirus s**t is for real and we out here as public workers, doing our job, trying to make an honest living to take care of our families, but for you to get on the bus and stand on the bus and cough several times without covering up your mouth and you know we in the middle of a pandemic…that lets me know that some folks don’t care. Utterly don’t give a f**k, excuse my language but that’s how I feel right about now.”
Hargrove said that the woman was in her late 50s or early 60s and coughed four to five times. There were around nine passengers were on the bus at the time.
“I ain’t blaming nobody but that woman that did that s**t,” he continued. “For us to get through this ya’ll need to take this s**t serious. It’s folks dying out here [because] of this s**t. I’m mad right now because that s**t was uncalled for. I’m trying to be the professional that they want me to be, so I kept my mouth closed. But at some point..you gotta' draw the line and say 'enough is enough.' That s**t was uncalled for. I feel violated. I feel violated for the folks that were on the bus when this happened.”
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency and a state of disaster over the spread of COVID-19. Since reporting its first two cases on March 10, more than 12,000 people in Michigan have tested positive for the disease, and nearly 500 people have died. Many of the cases have been centered in Detroit and Oakland County.
