While some see her as an entertainer, others see her as a potential boxing champion. But regardless of what career path Iyanna Mayweather ends up choosing to focus on, she has already been able to grow a massive following on social media. This is all thanks to her expensive and enviable lifestyle that is largely funded by her father, American professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Iyanna is known to divide her time between working on her music and training with her father in the gym. She and her father, who retired with an undefeated record, are said to have a very close bond that has prompted fans to call her his favorite child. Read on to find out more about Mayweather’s daughter and her family among other facts.
Iyanna Mayweather Biography (Age)
Iyanna Mayweather was born on May 20, 2000, to Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Melissa Bim. The professional boxer has four children in all and Iyanna is his only child with her mother, who was his one-time girlfriend. Her siblings include half-sister Jirah and half-brothers Koraun and Zion, from her father’s relationship with Josie Harris. She has a half brother Devion from her mother’s former relationship.
Like every other normal kid, Iyanna attended high school after which she proceeded to a higher institution, however, the exact names of the schools she attended are not available. The only way the public got to know a little about her education was when she posted photos from her graduation on social media.
To the public, Iyanna Mayweather did not make any significant move toward any career path. This may be the reason behind the mixed reviews she received for her song in 2018. In October 2018, a music video titled Oh Okay Remix was released on YouTube. But critical analysis of views revealed that the focus was rather on her rapping style. Iyanna owns a YouTube channel and is working to keep it active.
But as the daughter of one of the most talented boxers of all time, she has gained a huge following on social media. With hundreds of thousands following her on Instagram and Twitter, Iyanna is nowhere below average in terms of social media presence. As for how she got such a large following, Iyanna caught the attention of the public with lavish birthday parties sponsored by her father.
It does not end there, her father is known to spoil his daughter by gifting her with the most expensive things. On her 16th birthday, she had music artists like Drake and Future perform at her party and also received lots of gifts. This may seem like the highest of them all, but it will amaze you to know that on her 18th birthday, Iyanna Mayweather was gifted with an 18-carat ‘Canary PRISTINE’ ring worth $5 million. It was all glitz and glam at the birthday party graced by a host of celebrities.
All these gifts have made people wonder if she is her father’s favorite child. Another speculation is that the boxer is probably trying to make up for his infamous relationship with Iyanna’s mother.
Who Is Her Mother?
As we mentioned earlier Iyanna Mayweather is Floyd’s only child with his one-time girlfriend Melissa Brim. Brim is said to have first met the boxer when she was in her teens. At the time they started dating, Melissa already had a son named Devion Cromwell from a previous relationship, but this was never a problem for Floyd as he reportedly even went as far as adopting the child out of love for his mother. But things soon grew sour between them after Melissa became pregnant with Iyanna. Reports have it that they had a lot of fights at the time and later parted ways.
After the birth of Iyanna, the pair got back together again and Floyd did all he could to make up for the past. He helped her establish a boutique, ‘Devanna Love Boutique’ named after her children. In 2012, the once loved up couple parted ways again. It was an ugly episode with allegations of physical abuse leveled against Mayweather by Melissa. Floyd got into trouble with the law and was placed on house arrest for a few days.
