Boxer Mike Tyson and third wife Lakiha Spicer recently renewed their wedding vows, or was it a joint birthday party in Las Vegas? Keep reading about the surprise wedding that left hundreds of their closest friends confused plus check out all the preparations and how they planned this second wedding. Take a look at Mike and Lakiha’s photos through the years and the video provided below!
The love story between Mike Tyson and wife Lakiha Spicer starts after Mike suffered a parent’s worst nightmare, the tragic death of a child. Mike’s little 4 year-old daughter Exodus died on May 26th, a day after she was found by her older brother tangled in a treadmill cord. Her mother gave her CPR then called 911 who took little Exodus to the hospital, she was put on life support, dying the following day. Her death was reported as a tragic accident.
His marriage to his third wife Lakiha Spicer came two weeks after his daughter’s death. Some criticized him while others were sure she would help him move on from the pain. Their wedding took place at the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas with no guests, just the two of them. Both were happy with the next chapter in their lives as husband and wife, that was on June 6th, 2009 she was 32 and he was 44. Mrs. Spicer and her hubby have two children together, 2 year-old daughter Milan and 5 month-old son Morocco Elijah Tyson.
Two years have passed after they walked down the aisle, in the perfect ceremony that many of their family members and friends would have loved to witness, so on their second anniversary they had their wish granted, however their guests didn’t have a clue. Mike and Lakiha invited over a hundred members of their families and friends to what they believed to be a joint birthday party, Mike’s birthday is on June 30th, I am so sorry but I have no idea about her birthday, so let’s say is some day in June as well, LOL!!
TMZ tells us that their guests arrived at the party held at the M resort, so the couple went backstage, and put on their wedding attire and surprised everyone after a big curtain fell and they appeared! The great thing about this secret wedding is actually two things, they got to give a surprise to their beloved family and friends they would never forget and they each received a gift each from every guest, at weddings they get a single gift for both! Well Done and Congratulations from the bottom of our hearts to Mike and Lakiha!!! You can also send them a message in the comments box below!!
