Mike Tyson Marries Lakiha Spicer In Vegas Just Weeks After Daughter’s Death
Boxer Mike Tyson has married Lakiha Spicer in Las Vegas on Saturday. This makes the third marriage for Mike Tyson, who sadly lost his 4 year-old daughter in a tragic accident just two weeks ago. Read more on Tyson’s wedding below.
The owner of the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the boxer and Lakiha Spicer were married Saturday in a private ceremony.
The Chapel owner, Shawn Absher, stated that the couple arrived around 10 p.m. in a limousine.
County marriage records in Las Vegas confirmed Mike Tyson, 42, and Spicer, 32, obtained a marriage license about 30 minutes before their ceremony.
It’s nice to see some happy times for Tyson after the tragic death of his 4 year-old daughter, Exodus, two weeks ago from a treadmill accident. The little girl was said to have suffocated after her head was caught in a loop of cord hanging under the treadmill in their Phoenix home.
Tyson’s agent, Harlan Werner, told the AP that Spicer is not Exodus’ mother.
Tyson and Spicer, a resident of suburban Henderson, asked for a simple ceremony with nothing special, Absher said.
“They just wanted to say the vows and be married,” he said. “It was very sincere.”
Tyson has been married two times already…to Robin Givens in 1988 and Monica Turner in 1997.
Tyson and Spicer seemed very in love, Absher said.
“They were very heartwarming, and I think they really do love each other. “He seemed happy — and his life’s been up and down.”
Congrats to Mike Tyson an Lakiha Spicer on their marriage!
