MIKE Tyson, the former champion boxer, has married for a third time —— two weeks after his four-year-old daughter died in a tragic accident.
The ex-heavyweight champion exchanged vows with bride Lakiha Spicer in a Las Vegas wedding chapel on Saturday, the chapel’s owner, Shawn Absher said.
County marriage records in Las Vegas show 42-year-old Tyson and 32-year-old Spicer got a marriage licence about 30 minutes before their ceremony.
Last month Tyson’s daughter Exodus died after accidentally strangling herself. She was found hanging from a cord dangling from a treadmill at her home in Phoenix, Arizona, on May 25.
Absher said the former boxer and Spicer asked for a simple ceremony with “nothing special”.
“They just wanted to say the vows and be married,” he said. “It was very sincere.”
Tyson was previously married to actress Robin Givens in 1988 and Monica Turner in 1997.
His first marriage ended after one year when Givens filed for divorce and said in a televised interview that she was afraid of Tyson. His marriage to Turner lasted five years.
Tyson last boxed competitively in 2005. —— Telegraph.
