Mayweather may be facing 20 years in prison for allegedly stabbing one of NBA YoungBoy’s baby mamas.
When will these children learn that no one is above the law? In case you’ve been MIA, Mayweather was arrested on April 4, 2020 on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. This came after an altercation between Mayweather and Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, at the home of rapper NBA YoungBoy, became violent.
Law enforcement told the outlet that police arrived at YoungBoy’s home after EMS responded to a 911 call from the residence. Apparently, Jacobs and the rapper were at his home when Mayweather arrived. Mayweather reportedly told Jacobs that she was YoungBoy’s fiancée and that Jacobs needed to leave the residence. Jacobs then tried to get Mayweather to leave.
TMZ reported that things took a turn once the argument moved to the kitchen, where Mayweather was holding two knives. Jacobs then stepped toward Mayweather and Mayweather attacked her with the knife. Jacobs reportedly told authorities that she didn’t feel the first wound, but shared that Mayweather stabbed her a second time.
According to NBC News, Mayweather was charged and later released from jail on a $30,000 bond.
While Mayweather is one of YoungBoy’s baby mamas — she welcomed her son Kentrell Jr. in Jan. 2020 — there is no telling if her being a new mom will hold any weight on this legal issue. Bossip shares that Mayweather’s pre-trial hearing is set for Feb 2022.
As for Jacobs, she has taken to YouTube to share her recovery progress and details of the injuries she’s sustained. On May 5, 2020, she went on Instagram Live to share that she had serious injuries to her right arm and hand, which required surgery. Unfortunately, she was unable to lift her wrist or make any normal movements due to her injuries.
On Oct 2, 2021, Jacobs gave supporters an update on her condition. She’s still suffering from her injuries and has to undergo another surgery to fix the nerves in her hand. We would like to wish Lapattra Lashai Jacobs a speedy recovery.
