“At this point I’m still hurting, I don’t think nobody can ever change it or make me feel happy again. Nobody knows what I went through these past four months & [continue] going through it, starting from the middle of March & so on. April 3, 2020, I could’ve been dead & gone but I know what I can say is I THANK GOD FOR ANOTHER CHANCE TOO [sic] BE HERE On THIS EARTH. I lost a lot but they steady criticizing me about what I been through & BECAUSE I WON’T SAY ANYTHING OR TELL MY BUSINESS. They tell you be yourself then make you feel bad about it…

Meanwhile, we previously reported that Iyanna, 19, has been charged with aggravated felony assault with a deadly weapon. She’s facing up to 99 years in prison, in addition to a $10,000 fine.

Iyanna was also ordered by a judge to stay away from the victim, after she allegedly stabbed Jacobs during an argument at the rapper’s home in Houston in April. The scene turned violent after she explained to Jacobs that she was Youngboy’s fiancé, and then charged at her with two knives, stabbing Lapattra twice.

Mayweather reportedly told authorities that Jacobs provoked her by yanking her hair before the attack.

She was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Jacobs was reportedly taken to a nearby hospital and had surgery on her arm.

Iyanna was released after posting a $30,000 bond.

The crime is considered a felony in the state of Texas.
