Lakiha Kiki Spicer and Mike Tyson family
Lakiha has been a fan of boxing since her childhood years. Considering that Don King was her father’s friend, she had the opportunity to watch boxing events live.
Lakiha and Mike Tyson met each other when Lakiha was 18 years old. Her father had brought her to one of the boxer’s fights.
Don King was aware of Mike Tyson’s unsuccessful relationships and told the boxer to stay away from Lakiha. Nevertheless, Mike did not give up.
On 9 June 2009, Kiki and Mike exchanged their vows in a short, private ceremony. The event took place at the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel.

- Morocco Elijah Tyson – He was born on 25 January 2011.
As of today, their love is as strong as it was years ago. Here is what Mike told rapper T.I. on ExpediTIiously:
“Without my wife, I’m a savage animal…I look at women differently as I get older. When I was younger, I viewed them as pleasure. Now that I’m older, I look at them as the half. It makes me realize that I’m a man. And at this stage in my life, they’re my teachers. If a man doesn’t have a little bit of fear of his wife, he’s not living his life right.”
Moreover, the boxer added that he cannot live without a wife:
“That’s why I got married three times, ’cause I can’t live without a wife. If I don’t have a wife, I’ll kill myself. That’s real talk. I need somebody to listen to. I’m a soldier. I can’t think on my own, I need somebody to do it…I know myself.”
Before Lakiha, Tyson had been married twice. The previous Mike Tyson wives are Robin Givens and Monica Turner.
