The alleged altercation happened at the Houston home of YoungBoy NBA, born Kentrell Gaulden, after Iyanna found Lapattra there and identified herself as the rapper’s fiancée, according to an earlier report by TMZ, citing law enforcement sources. During his arrest, Iyanna allegedly told police that Jacobs pulled his hair and ran into the kitchen, where the incident took place, according to the outlet.
Kent A. Schaffer, an attorney for Iyanna, tells E! News in an April 15 statement, “We have resolved the case against Iyanna by reaching a settlement with the state.”
“Iyanna will be sentenced to a deferred trial sentence for a period of six years, at which time the case will be closed and she will have no convictions,” Schaffer continued. “Additionally, she will be eligible for early termination in two years, pending her good conduct.”
The lawyer added: “While we strongly believe that she did not provoke the issue and acted in self-defense, neither her boyfriend nor her bodyguards, who were the only neutral witnesses, refused talk to us or talk to the police. a position where we had to decide if it was worth risking a long prison term where we could otherwise eliminate all risk.”
