Lakiha Spicer Relationship Story With Husband Mike Tyson
Lakiha Spicer first met Mike Tyson when she was just eighteen-years-young while visiting boxing events with the promoter Don King. It seems that there was an instant attraction between the two. Sometime after the two met, Mike was convicted for rape and was sentenced to three years in prison, but this was not enough to think ill of Mike Tyson. The two had started dating when Kiki was 23 but was in an on-again-off-again relationship, and no matter how much she tried, Lakiha could never get herself to not love Mike Tyson.
In 2008, Lakiha was sentenced to six months in federal prison for money fraud and conspiracy, but just a week before her sentence, she found out that she was pregnant with Mike's child. Not too long after being released from prison, Lakiha became the mother to Mike Tyson's daughter Milan Tyson and not knowing what to do, she contacted Mike. But Mike, at the time, was suffering from drug addiction, but Kiki did not give up on him and continued to love for him.
Overwhelmed by the feelings, Mike decided that he would try his best to quit, which he did, and often thanks his wife for being in her life. The couple then got married at the La Bella Wedding Chapel in a private wedding ceremony held on June 9th, 2009. The couple also welcomed Mike Tyson's son, Morocco Elijah Tyson, on January 25th, 2011.
Problems In Jail
At one point in time, it wasn't just Lakiha and Mike Tyson who were sentenced to jail time. In fact, while Lakiha spent her 2004 in house arrest and the following four years in probation, her family was not so lucky as they were sentenced to prison until 2013.The reason for which was participating and conducting of racketeering enterprises and using methods like extortion and bribery to get money and properties.
Following Lakiha's probation period in 2008, she was convicted again for fraud and conspiracy. She had reportedly received $71K from her father's company for teaching at Sister Clara Muhammad School but record proved otherwise, and thus she was sent to federal prison for six months. Then in 2013, another problem arose, and this time it was threats. She had reportedly received several emails threatening her and her family over false accusation and this problem was brought up in LA County as she had filed a lawsuit.
Since then, it seems that the family has tried their best to make sure to never have a troublesome lifestyle again.
At the moment, it seems that Mike Tyson's wife, Kiki Tyson, as well as her family, including her step-children Rayna Tyson, Miguel Leon Tyson, Exodus Tyson, Mikey Lorna Tyson, and Amir Tyson, are living and enjoying a wonderful life. With Mike Tyson as the main earner for the family, it seems that there are no wishes left unfulfilled of anyone. Besides, considering the fact that Mike Tyson's net worth is a grand of $3 million, it is not a strange fact that the family has been living in a wonderful and lavish house.
Kiki is also someone who enjoys privacy more, especially when compared to her family, and in fact, does not own an account on social media. She also almost never appears in either of her family member's social media, and few pictures of her can be found online. This goes to show that sometimes, even if you have all the fame, you don't necessarily need to disclose everything about yourself.
