Iyanna Mayweather, also known as Money Yaya, was born in Las Vegas, Nevada USA, on 20 May 2000 – her zodiac sign is Taurus and she holds American nationality. She is a singer and a social media star, but who is perhaps known best for being the daughter of Floyd Mayweather Jr., a popular American former professional boxer, and a boxing promoter.
Mother, father and early life
Iyanna was raised in Las Vegas alongside her three half-siblings by her father and her mother Melissa Brim. Her half-siblings are from her father’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris, who was found dead in her car on 23 June 2002, reportedly from drug overdose.
Iyanna attended a local high school at which she was mostly focused on playing sports and shaping her body to prepare herself for the modelling career she was hoping to launch. She mostly played tennis and soccer, and aged 17 began going to the gym and also started practicing boxing with her father. Upon matriculating in 2018, Iyanna chose not to enroll at a college but to work and be able to financially support herself.
Career as a singer
Iyanna has released a couple of songs, but the only one which helped her become recognized on the internet was “Oh, Okay Remix” which was uploaded onto YouTube on 6 October 2018, and has since been viewed more than two million times.
She is also a social media star, as she is followed by more than 1.4 million people on Instagram while she’s only uploaded close to 20 pictures onto her account, most of which have been taken during her everyday life. Iyanna launched her Twitter account in September 2020, which is today followed by only around 110 people as she is not very active on it, and she also has a Facebook page, followed by just a couple of people.
Was she arrested?
Iyanna was arrested on 4 April 2020 after Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, mother of rapper NBA Youngboy’s child, was stabbed.
She has hired the lawyer Kurt Schaffer to defend her, as she’s been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. If Iyanna’s lawyer loses the battle, she could spend up to 99 years in jail, and might have to pay around $10,000 in fines.
Love life and relationships
Iyanna was once in a relationship with NBA YoungBoy; they were dating on and off for over a year, and on 9 January 2021, Iyanna gave birth to their son Kentrell Jr. It appears that this is one of the reasons why Iyanna has allegedly stabbed NBA YoungBoy’s ex-girlfriend, although she has known that the popular rapper has seven children with seven different women.
Iyanna hasn’t commented on any other men she has perhaps been with, but there are rumors circulating the internet that she has also been with a couple of unidentified men, as some fans have claimed to have seen her spending time with them, however, this hasn’t been confirmed.

Who is Iyanna’s father Floyd Mayweather Jr.?
Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan USA, on 24 February 1977 – his zodiac sign is Pisces and he holds American nationality. He fought as a boxer from 1996 to 2015 and during those 19 years won fifteen world titles, while he retired with 50 wins and no defeats.
He was raised in Grand Rapids by his father Floyd Mayweather Sr. who was also a boxer, and his mother who was a housewife. His father sold drugs and was eventually sent to prison, while his mother was addicted to them. Floyd studied at Ottawa Hills High School, but quit to focus on boxing.
Floyd was 16 when he won the Golden Gloves national championship, and by that time had an 84-6 amateur record.
He entered the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia USA, and there won a bronze medal in the featherweight category. He fought his debut professional fight on 11 October 1996, when he beat Roberto Apodaca in the second round by a knockout. Floyd won his first world title in 1998 when he beat Genaro Hernandez in The Ring in the eighth round by a technical knockout, and he was then named the eighth best boxer on Earth. One of his hardest and most notable battles was against Diego Corrales who was a former International Boxing Federation (IBF) super featherweight champion and had a 33-0 record before facing Floyd. Floyd won after Corrales’ cornermen stopped the fight as he was knocked down by Floyd five times by round 10.
Floyd beat every opponent he faced, and after his retirement in 2015, he only returned for one match in 2017, to fight the Irish mixed martial artist Conor McGregor on 26 August 2017, and won with a technical knockout in the tenth round.
Although he has always spoken against the men who are violent towards women, Floyd was charged with domestic violence in 2002, and sentenced to spend two days under house arrest and do two days of community service. Similar thing happened in 2004, when he was convicted of misdemeanor battery against two women.
