Mike Tyson marries Lakiha Spicer two weeks after child’s death
Mike Tyson married girlfriend Lakiha Spicer at La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton, two weeks after the tragic death of his four-year-old daughter Exodus.
According to E! Online, the former heavyweight champion and his bride exchanged vows Saturday night in a short, private ceremony.
The couple took out a marriage license and then got hitched 45 minutes later. Spicer eschewed a traditional wedding gown in favor of “an appropriate dress,” while Tyson wore a suit.
The 42-year-old boxing icon requested that all photos taken of the ceremony be kept private.
This is Iron Mike’s third marriage. He was previously married to Robin Givens and Monica Turner.
Exodus, Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter died in Joe’s Hospital where she was rushed after her 7-year old brother found her hanging from the treadmill by its power cord.
