Floyd Mayweather confirmed Yaya’s pregnancy in November

Floyd Mayweather was the first to confirm rumors that his daughter Yaya was pregnant with NBA YoungBoy’s baby.

He confirmed the rumor in November, during an interview on Hollywood Unlocked with Jason Lee.

“I just want the best for my daughter,” Floyd said. “I always want the best. If that makes her happy, then we’re happy. Me and her mother is happy.”

Yaya Mayweather had a tumultuous relationship with NBA YoungBoy

The news that Yaya was single despite being pregnant with NBA YoungBoy’s baby did not come as a surprise to fans.

NBA YoungBoy and Yaya had a tumultuous relationship.

Monsters and Critics reported back in April 2020 that police arrested YaYy and held her at Houston’s Harris County jail after she allegedly stabbed a love rival, Lapattra Jacobs.

The incident allegedly happened after Yaya arrived at NBA YoungBoy’s mansion in Houston and found Lapattra there. She allegedly confronted Lapattra and things escalated after that.

However, Yaya denied the allegation that she stabbed Lapattra Jacobs.

Monsters and Critics also reported in September that NBA YoungBoy was arrested on drugs and firearms charges in Baton Rouge.
