Tyson marries in Vegas 2 weeks after child’s death
LAS VEGAS – Mike Tyson is married for a third time, two weeks after his 4-year-old daughter died in a bizarre treadmill accident.
The owner of the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the former heavyweight champion and his bride exchanged vows Saturday night in a short, private ceremony.
County marriage records in Las Vegas show the 42-year-old Tyson and 32-year-old Lakiha Spicer got a marriage license about 30 minutes before their ceremony.
Chapel owner Shawn Absher says the couple wed about 10 p.m.
The boxer’s daughter, Exodus Tyson, died in May after she was injured in her Phoenix home when she either slipped or put her head in the loop of a cord hanging under a treadmill’s console and was suffocated.
