Just two weeks after suffering the tragic loss of his 4-year-old daughter Exodus, retired boxer Mike Tyson married his longtime girlfriend Lakiha Spicer in a private ceremony at La Bella Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Tyson and Spicer signed the marriage license on June 6th, just 30 minutes before they exchanged their vows in the low-key wedding, which Shawn Absher, owner of the wedding chapel, said was in keeping with a special request from Tyson himself.
“They were very heartwarming, and I think they really do love each other,” Absher said. “He seemed happy -and his life’s been up and down. They just wanted to say the vows and be married … it was very sincere.”
This is Tyson’s third marriage. He was previously married to actress Robin Givens (1988) and Monica Turner (1997), of whom he has two children with.
