Mike Tyson is considered one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time. During his best years, he was the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and made a lot of money.
Before going bankrupt in 2003, “Iron” Mike led a luxurious life. His love life has also gotten a lot of attention as he has dated a number of women.
Tyson has been married three times. He is now 56 years old. Robin Givens, an American actress, was his first wife. From 1988 to 1989, they were married for a year. According to the boxer, they got married soon after Givens told them she was pregnant. The actress, on the other hand, said she lost the baby.
Givens later said Tyson had hurt her physically, and the two divorced in 1989. In an interview with Barbara Walters before they split, Givens said Tyson was “intimidating”.
But in his book “Undisputed Truth,” Tyson wrote about his marriage to Givens from his own perspective. He said the actress and her “ruthless” mother took advantage of him to get money.
Seven years after his split from Givens, Tyson married Monica Turner. He met her at an Eddie Murphy event in 1990. Even after Tyson was convicted of rape and sent to an Indiana prison for three years, the two stayed in touch. Turner often visited Tyson in jail while he was there.
In 1997 they got married and Rayna, their daughter, and Amir, their son, were born. People say the marriage lasted five years. But Turner filed for divorce from Tyson in 2002 after accusing him of cheating on her.
Who is Mike Tyson marrying now?
After his first two relationships ended, many people thought Mike Tyson would never marry again. But Tyson married Lakiha Spicer in 2009.
Spicer and Tyson first met a few years before they started dating. A New York Post report says she was 18 when she went with her father, Shamsud-din Ali, to see Tyson fight.
Lakiha, also known as “Kiki,” was sentenced to six months in federal prison and ordered to pay $30,000 in restitution for her part in a money laundering scheme a year before their wedding. She found out about a week before her sentence began that she was pregnant with Tyson’s child. She had a baby shortly after being released.
The couple now live together as a happy family. Tyson even said that Lakiha helped him quit using drugs. The couple have a daughter named Milan and a son named Morocco.
Tyson told ExpediTIously in a 2020 interview that Lakiha had completely changed her mind about marriage:
