Boxing legend Mike Tyson is the most established he has ever been.
And that could be due to the influence of his new wife, Lakiha Spicer.
Or it is possible that the indulgence of cannabis admitted by the 53-year-old man has softened it.
But over the years, his tumultuous lifestyle has not worked well for being a married man.
Before walking down the aisle with Lakiha, better known as “Kiki”, he was married twice.
First, to the American model Robin Givens in 1988, whom he caught in bed with Brad Pitt, a Hollywood star.
Then, with Doctor Monica Turner for six years.
ROBIN GIVENS, 1988-1989
Mike’s most explosive love story had reached the height of his glory.
They married 11 months after their first date, when they were allegedly joined by his mother and his publicist.
“My social skills were to put a guy in a coma,” he wrote in his memoirs, “Undisputed Truth.”
“So maybe Robin was exactly what the doctor ordered.” “
According to Tyson, they had a hastily arranged marriage when Givens announced that she was pregnant.
He had already given Givens and his mother £ 3 million to buy a New Jersey property, as well as £ 6.5 million in another account for her and her mother.
But shortly after the exchange of money, Robin told Mike that she had a miscarriage.
The couple later appeared in a worthy interview with American journalist Barbara Walters, where Givens called Tyson “intimidating” and said that she and her mother were afraid of her mood.
Givens filed for divorce soon after the interview, but they continued to see each other.
At that point, Givens started dating Brad Pitt – and Tyson met the couple having sex.
“Dude, don’t hit me,” said Pitt as he faced the fierce heavyweight, “don’t hit me. “
“You had to see the expression on his face,” Tyson wrote in his book.
“He looked like he was ready to receive his last rites. He also looked stoned from his gourd. “
MONICA TURNER, 1997-2003
You could have forgiven Tyson for swearing his marriage after his experience with Givens.
But in 1997, he said “I do” to Turner in a quiet Muslim ceremony, seven years after their first meeting.
Their paths crossed for the first time in 1990 at a party hosted by comedian Eddie Murphy.
The couple remained in touch, even when Tyson was found guilty of raping Desiree Washington, an 18-year-old beauty contestant, and sent to Indiana prison for three years.
Every two weeks, Turner visited Tyson in prison as their story unfolded.
When he was released, they moved to their home in Maryland, where they hoped to live a quiet life.
But their romance was not to last – with Turner seeking a divorce and demanding adultery four years later.
They have two children together – Rayna and Amir.
LAKIHA SPICER, 2009-PRESENT
Kiki, 43, first met Tyson at the age of 18, when they were introduced by promoter Don King after one of his fights.
However, it wasn’t until the early 2000s that they started dating and married in 2009 – two weeks after Tyson’s daughter Exodus died.
Most recently, Kiki helped develop Mike’s personal show “The Undisputed Truth” on Broadway.
But despite the longevity of their marriage, it has been fraught with pitfalls and suggestions of infidelity.
Tyson said in January that he had only been loyal to Spicer for the last two years of their marriage in an interview on rapper T.I.’s ExpediTIously podcast.
Kiki also had problems with the law.
In 2008 she was sentenced to six months in federal prison for a £ 60,000 scam from a business owned by her father.
She claimed to have taught math lessons at Sister Clara Muhammad School, but allegedly used the school to launder money.

Kiki took some time carrying Tyson’s baby, and when she went out, she found her husband desperately addicted to drugs.
With his help, Tyson managed to overcome his addiction.
“I am very happy that my wife and I have come together, because I don’t know how I would have survived there,” he told People magazine.
