Their daughter Iyanna
Iyanna Mayweather was born on May 20, 2000, to Brim and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Brim was working in the Rio Hotel & Casino when she found she was pregnant with Mayweather's child. By then, they both had already stopped talking to each other due to an issue with Josie Harris, mother of one of Mayweather's children.
Brim worked until she was eight and half months pregnant and rejoined her workplace within 8 weeks after giving birth to Iyanna. "I did what I had to do," Brim said in an interview with OZY.
Iyanna Mayweather gave birth to a baby boy, Kentrell Jr in January 2021 with Kentrell DeSean Gaulden a.k.a YoungBoy. YoungBoy is an American professional rapper.
Iyanna revealed the news on Instagram on 9th January 2021 by uploading a picture of the baby boy’s foot with a lyrical caption from the song 'Mama’s Hand', by the singer Queen Naija."From the very moment you arrived, I felt something new inside/I developed a love that was so unconditional/And I promise to give you everything I have." Iyanna captioned.
Soon after, Iyanna shared a picture of her father holding and embracing his grandson on her Instagram. She captioned the adorable photo "Papa came to support him at his first photoshoot”.
This is the first child of YoungBoy and Iyanna’s together. However, the rapper has 6 more children from several other women. Currently, the rapper and Iyanna are not together as they parted their ways. In 2019, the rapper dissed Iyanna by dropping his rap song 'Dirty Iyanna'.
When she was 19, she was charged with aggravated assault with a lethal weapon. Iyanna allegedly stabbed Lapattra Jacobs during a brawl over her ex-boyfriend NBA Youngboy in the rapper’s own home in April 2020. The situation went out of control when Iyanna told Jacobs that she was the rapper's fiancé and then attacked her with a couple of knives, stabbing twice on Jacob’s arm. Later she was released after being charged with a $30,000 bond.
Mayweather repeatedly explained to authorities that it was Jacobs, who started the fight by provoking her after pulling her hair. The alleged victim’s injuries didn’t suggest that it was life threatening. She was rushed to a hospital after her injury.

On the other side, Brim was in another relationship, which got ended after Mayweather contacted her. Then, the couple entered a serious discussion about their child. Mayweather expressed his apologies for his shortcomings, and ever since, the couple has been co-parenting their daughter and were in a friendly relationship with each other.
The relationship between Brim and Mayweather wasn't that smooth. According to the report of Review-Journal, the former boxer has had two separate rough incidents with Brim. The first incident took place in February 2001 when Mayweather knocked Brim on her jaw with the car door and punched her on the face and body. The second incident occurred after five months when Mayweather struck Brim in her neck.
In 2002, he pleaded guilty for both the crimes and was charged with a $3000 fine, 48 hours of community welfare service, and a half-year suspended prison sentence.
Mayweather had been in frequent trouble with the law. In 2005, the then boxer faced a trial for allegedly punching and kicking his ex-partner, late Josie Harris, and dragging her out of the car, grabbing her hair. Harris took him to court again in 2005 for allegedly kicking her and dragging her out of his car, but she changed her story on the witness stand and said she lied about Mayweather’s history. In 2003, the Las Vegas Sun reported Mayweather's conviction of two battery counts from a brawl with two female friends of Harris in a nightclub. For this, he had to face a suspended sentence of one year in jail and was ordered to undergo counseling.
In 2012, he served two months of jail term after he assaulted Harris in front of their three kids. According to Harris, she was asleep when Mayweather clasped her hair and forcibly dragged her around. He then repeatedly punched her in the head. In 2014, Harris told USA Today that she underwent physical assault from Mayweather six different times.

While many people apparently boycotted the brand, the boxer refused to show his solidarity and also said that he wouldn’t discontinue wearing the Gucci product.
