Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson married girlfriend Lakiha Spicer in Las Vegas over the weekend, according to news reports.
The marriage – Tyson’s third – comes two weeks after the accidental death of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus Tyson. The youngster was found strangled by the loop of a cord hanging under a treadmill’s console in her home.
Spicer, 32, was said to have been comforting Tyson, 42, during the tragedy.
Shawn Absher, owner of the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino, told the Associated Press that Tyson and Spicer tied the knot around 10 p.m. Saturday, after they arrived from the county marriage bureau in a chapel-owned limousine.
