It’s easy to go a little green with envy over the lives celebrity kids lead. I mean, not only do they get to enjoy the flashy lifestyle, but they also get to live with some of our most favorite people. The relationship between daughters and their fathers has always been a special one. Yaya Mayweather’s relationship with her father, Floyd Mayweather, is no exception, and you will find out they share more than just genetics.
Who is Yaya Mayweather?
If you haven’t heard about Yaya Mayweather, she is the first daughter of legendary boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and entrepreneur Melissa Brim. She was born on the 20th of May 2000 in Nevada, Las Vegas. She is the second born of five siblings, Kouran, Zion, Jirah, and Devion.
Iyanna and her siblings grew up in the USA and have enjoyed very lavish lifestyles courtesy of their extremely rich father. She is an aspiring rapper, and in October 2018, she released the song “Oh Okay”. However, the song was not received very well, with many people telling her just to quit music. However, the haters have not deterred her from music because she has new music yet to be released.
Her Famous Father
Yaya’s Father, Floyd Mayweather, needs no introduction. The legendary boxing champion has earned his way to fame by being the ultimate best at his sport. He has won fifteen world championships, a bronze medal, Golden gloves championship, and the US National featherweight championship. He remains undefeated in the ring and has retired so.
Among his accolades is that the Boxing Writers Association of America named him “Fighter of the Decade” in 2010. He has won The Ring magazines Fighter of the Year Award twice, The BWAA fighter of the year award three times, and the Beast Fighter Epsy Award six times! I mean, just wow! He has also been ranked greatest boxer pound-for-pound of the last two decades by ESPN, Fox Sports, Box Rec, and Yahoo! Sports.
Floyd’s achievements speak for themselves; it is no wonder he is one of the highest-paid athletes. He tops the Forbes list in that regard for the years 2012-2015. He owns his boxing promotional firm, rakes in millions of dollars in PPV buys. Needless to say, the man is stinking rich, and he is not shy to spend that money on his kids, especially his firstborn daughter, Yaya Mayweather.
Yaya’s Relationship with her Father
Yaya may not be her Father’s oldest child, but she is her Father’s first and oldest daughter. Of all her Father’s kids, she is the one most known to the public due to her online presence, her chaotic love life, her barely-there rap career, and most importantly, the bond she has with her Father. The two have shared many adorable moments. Here is a look at their Relationship and likeness.
He Spoils Her, silly!
I mean, what is the point of being a multimillionaire if your kids can’t enjoy the benefits, right? Well, Floyd Mayweather puts the S in Spoiling your children. For Yaya’s 16th birthday, her dad practically threw a mini-concert for her party, with performances from Future, Drake. He even had Justin Bieber send her a special shout-out for her birthday via video! I mean, that is just wild!
As if that is not enough, he gifted her a brand new Mercedes G Wagon! Like what’s a 16-year-old supposed to do with such a car? But I guess that is just something rich people do, because personally for my 16th birthday I got a nice banana cake and a card from my parents saying “Love you”.
They Support Each other
If you are new to the whole Yaya and her baby Daddy NBA player Youngboy, Yaya was recently arrested for allegedly stabbing one of YoungBoy’s baby mama after finding them in his apartment. It has not yet been established how the situation escalated to that point and why but Yaya and Youngboy have always had a complicated and messy, and messy relationship.
Such behaviors warrant great disappointments from parents, and while Floyd is not a big fan of Youngboy, he has supported his daughter through it all. Yaya has even revealed she considers moving back in with her dad together with her son.
Yaya has also taken to social media a couple of times to support and even defend her dad (not that he needs it). When the feud between Jake Paul and her Father broke out, she took to social media with a photo of Floyd striking Jake and saying how her dad would put him in his place and remind Jake who is King!
He Dotes on Yaya’s son
Floyd may hate NBA Youngboy’s guts, but he sure as hell loves his grandson. The boxer is occasionally seen holding the young boy and hanging out with him. He even bought the kid his own customized Rolex with diamonds encrusted on it at only five weeks old! Wow. I’m officially jealous of a baby.
Yaya Mayweather and her Father Floyd enjoy the flamboyant lifestyle, and they are not shy to show it. At least in that way, they are more alike. Regardless of all the things going on in their lives, the duos bond is unbreakable; we can never fault a loving father-daughter relationship.
