His second was with Monica Turner. They met in 1990 during a party by Eddie Murphy. The two connected and carried on long after that night. So deep was their connection that she visited him during his imprisonment.

In 1997, Monica and Tyson got married and had two children Amir and Rayna. Tyson was still fighting and his work kept him away from home. His wife later filed for divorce due to infidelity and overspending.

Who is Mike Tyson’s Wife?

Mike Tyson’s wife, Lakiha Spicer, was born on 11 June 1977 in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. She has a brother who’s three years older than her. Her parents are Shamsud-Din Ali and Faridah Ali. As you can already tell, Lakiha Spicer comes from a Muslim family.   

It so happens that Lakiha’s father and Mike Tyson’s promoter Don King were friends. As a result, Lakiha attended various boxing matches and in 2000, they met. 

Lakiha was 18 and Tyson was 29. The story goes that Tyson was told not to get close to her. That seems to have fallen on deaf ears as the two took a liking to each other. 

They never left each other’s side and after years of dating, they tied the knot in 2009 at the La Bella Wedding Chapel. Lakiha has nothing but kind words to share about the fighter.

“He’s the only person I fell in love with multiple times. I can’t get him out of my system. There’re times I thought I did but when we started to talk again, things got going.” Lakiha told the New York Post.
