Floyd Mayweather's 20-year-old daughter Iyanna faced a backlash from internet critics after she was spotted partying on a yacht with her newborn. 

Iyanna Mayweather is in the news again, but this time, not for good reasons. The 20-year-old recently came under attack from Twitter users after she was seen partying with her newborn son Kentrell Jr.

In a clip shared by TheShadeRoom, Iyanna danced on a black couch as she held Kentrell against her chest. The new mom was flanked by friends who were evidently in party mode.

Unsurprisingly, the clip caught the attention of several Twitter users who were quick to share their disapproval over the video. While some thought it was wrong for an infant to be on a boat, many others could not get over the absence of masks at the party.

One user shared that there were many things wrong with the video, while another described it as infuriating. A third fan shared her concerns, writing:

"No, on so many levels. Just no."


Someone else added that Iyanna needed profound guidance, while another sent out a subtle shade, tweeting that people who are still children need to stop having kids.

The criticisms went a notch higher when fans realized Iyanna's mom Melissia was also present at the party and was the one that had filmed the widely circulated video.

Mayweather stirred up fans' reactions after revealing he gifted Kentrell Jr. a gold diamond-encrusted Rolex watch.


Iyanna and her ex-boyfriend Youngboy NBA welcomed their son in January. The tiny tot's arrival came only a few months after Mayweather first confirmed that his daughter was indeed pregnant.

Taking to social media at the time, Iyanna shared an adorable photo capturing Kentrell's tiny foot while Queen Naija's "Mama's Hand" played in the background.


In addition to Iyanna, Mayweather is also a father to three other children, Koraun, Jirah, and Zion, all of whom he welcomed during his relationship with ex-girlfriend Josie Harris.

Despite his busy schedule and very successful boxing career, Mayweather has managed to maintain a close relationship with all his kids.

Over time, the doting dad has made headlines for spoiling his brood with expensive gifts — something he seems to have extended to his grandson.


Earlier this month, Mayweather stirred up fans' reactions after revealing he gifted Kentrell Jr. a gold diamond-encrusted Rolex watch. The boxing champion seems to be living up to his new role quite well.

And for Iyanna? While many might not agree with her mothering skills, the 20-year-old is undoubtedly loving her role as a mother. Kentrell Jr. is sure in for a lifetime of fun and luxury!
