Iyanna is the oldest daughter of Floyd Mayweather and Melissia Brim. The couple met in a lounge bar in Las Vegas when Brim was only 16 years old, when Floyd was in a serious relationship with Josie Harris, who was the mother of his first son Koraun.
At first Brim didn’t know about Mayweather’s fame, as he introduced himself as Shaheed and asked for her number. Allegedly, he phoned her a week later and told her his real name. Not long after, the pair started a short-lived but intense romance.
In an interview with Ozy, Brim confessed Mayweather was deeply affectionate and often bought her expensive things: ‘Before I met Floyd, I was a tomboy who dressed in oversize clothes and refused to wear heels. After we met, he had me in Versace. I started enjoying fashion’.
Regardless of Mayweather’s luxurious gifts, Brim continued working independently to be able to sustain herself and her one year old son Devion, who was born shortly before Brim met Mayweather for the first time and the reason she dropped out of school at 15 years old: ‘I needed money to take care of him, and going to school wasn’t going to get the job done. Floyd also helped out.’
Brim discovered she was pregnant with Mayweather’s child in 1999, when she was working in Rio Hotel & Casino. However, the relationship spiraled downwards shortly before the baby was born, as Floyd’s had several problems with Harris.
It was then when Melissia gave birth to Iyanna that she and Mayweather stopped talking altogether. Brim continued working to sustain her children on her own, obtaining licenses in cosmetology and massage therapy to improve in her career.
Melissia and Floyd didn’t speak again until 2005, when he and Harris broke up and he contacted Brim again: ‘He apologized for some things he had done, and ever since then, we’ve been co-parenting and have become very close friends.’

Trying to amend for the time he had lost with his daughter, Mayweather bought Melissia and her children a house and gave them one of his cars. In 2009 he helped Brim to fund her own business – Devanna Love Boutique.
Iyanna has three half-siblings on her father’s side. Besides Koraun, she has a younger half-brother named Zion and a half-sister named Jirah. Devion is her only sibling on her mother’s side.
Although Melissia and Floyd have both remained unmarried, they never reconciled completely, and have remained as good friends.
Education & More
Iyanna Mayweather was apparently home-schooled until 2016, when she started attending a school in Las Vegas. In 2018 Iyanna’s mother posted a pic on Instagram celebrating Iyanna’s high school matriculation: ‘A beautiful day to remember @moneyyaya Graduated today & I couldn’t be more proud’.
Although it’s unknown if Iyaana is going to pursue tertiary education, her mother Melissia has revealed that Iyanna has developed a deep interest in the boxing business, the reason for which she wants to take over her father’s company: ‘(boxing) runs in my daughter’s blood. Iyanna may not have to work, but she wants to. Mark my words, she will be the CEO of Mayweather Promotions.’
On her Instagram account, Iyanna often models Fashion Nova clothes, and in addition to her modeling career, Iyanna is also a rapper. She released her first – and to date only song – “Oh Okay Remix” in 2018.
In early 2019 Iyanna Mayweather started dating the rapper NBS YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden. At the start the relationship apparently was going well for both, but later that year the couple broke up for unknown reasons. Then in December 2019, NBA YoungBoy released a track entitled “Dirty Iyanna”.
Although the song is a tribute to Michael Jackson’s iconic song “Dirty Diana”, YoungBoy intended his song to be a ‘diss track’ about Iyanna. In it he accuses her of slashing his tires, and also sings about her behavior and impulsivity, making her personality seem less than desirable.
Iyanna wasn’t negatively affected by the song though, as she responded to YoungBoy with an Instagram video – now deleted – on which she can be seen laughing at it along with her mother Melissia. NBA YoungBoy simply commented on her video with ‘I’m laughing so hard I love you,’ to which Iyanna answered ‘Lol love you more baby’.
This exchange of sweet messages between them suggested rumors of a possible reconciliation between the two, and later in 2020 the pair confirmed they were dating again.
In April 2020, Iyanna Mayweather was arrested after allegedly stabbing a woman named Lapattra Jacobs, who is the mother of NBA YoungBoy’s son. The altercation happened in YoungBoy’s house after Iyanna arrived while Jacobs was visiting him. Iyanna apparently told Jacobs she didn’t want her to visit YoungBoy.
The women started a discussion which quickly moved to the house’s kitchen, where Iyanna allegedly took a kitchen knife with which she repeatedly stabbed Jacobs in both arms. Apparently it was YoungBoy who called the ambulance which took Jacobs to a nearby hospital, where she underwent emergency surgery despite not presenting life-threatening injuries.
Iyanna’s mother expressed her support for her daughter on her social media accounts, though Floyd Mayweather didn’t offer any comments regarding the incident.
Meanwhile Jacobs said she wasn’t feeling well emotionally, and asked her followers on Instagram to respect her privacy.
Reportedly, Iyanna could have faced a sentence of up to 99 years in prison for aggravated assault, in addition to domestic abuse charges. However, as Iyanna’s criminal history was clear, she only had to pay a $30,000 on bail, and was ordered to stay 1,000 feet away from her victim.
In November 2020, it was confirmed Iyanna Mayweather was soon to give birth to her first child in December 2020. This was confirmed by her own father Floyd during an interview with Hollywood Unlocked: ‘If that makes her happy, then we’re happy – me and her mother are happy’.
Tragedy has struck boxer Floyd Mayweather's family again. His daughter, Iyanna "Yaya" Mayweather, is under arrest for…
Regarding his thoughts on his daughter’s boyfriend and father of the child NBA YoungBoy, Floyd confirmed he approved of him, trusting his daughter’s decisions: ‘What I try not to do is be in her personal business, because once she’s no longer under my roof’.
Iyanna’s mother Melissia has also supported her daughter in this important moment of her life, not only through her words, but also by actions such as organizing her grand-child’s baby shower.
Although Iyanna is still trying to build her own career, she already enjoys a privileged financial position due to her father’s fortune. Due to this, Iyanna Mayweather has an estimated net worth of over $100,000.
Iyanna’s current height and weight are unknown. However, she is slender and has a noticeably small height. Her petite build gives her a cute-looking appearance, which is complemented by her gorgeous facial features.
Iyanna always makes sure her celebrations are memorable for everyone. Celebrities such as Drake and Justin Bieber have sung in her birthday parties. Her father is known for giving his daughter expensive gifts, and on her 14th birthday Iyanna received a luxurious Mercedes 550 S-Class, while on her 18th birthday she was given an 18 carat ring.
Her mother Melissia named her boutique as “Devanna”, inspired by the combination between Iyanna and her brother Devion’s names. Her half-siblings’ mother, Josie Harris died in 2020, reason unknown.
Iyanna’s father Floyd has been accused several times of domestic abuse, and in 2012 faced weeks in prison for this reason.
If Iyanna marries NBA YoungBoy, she would be the step-mother of four children who are resulting from the rapper’s previous relationships. NBA YoungBoy was arrested at 17 years old for attempted murder.
Iyanna is very close with her half-sister Jirah, and has uploaded videos of both of them dancing together.
Her father Floyd Mayweather is one of the most legendary boxers in history, as he has never lost a match in his career. Iyanna allegedly felt sick during her father’s fight against Manny Pacquiao.
