As of 2022, Mike Tyson tied the knot three times, and two of those knots eventually came undone. His first wife was Robin Givens, who grew to fame starring in the ’80s sitcom “Head of the Class.” They were married for eight months in 1988, with Givens accusing Tyson of spousal abuse. After their split, things got pretty nasty between them in the press. It was so bad that Givens filed a $125 million defamation suit after Tyson called her and her mother Ruth Roper, “The slime of the slime.” Givens withdrew her suit later on. What’s more, it was rumored the former pro fighter gave his ex $10 million in the settlement, something she denied. But either way, Tyson still shelled out money for legal representation, which obviously took away from his earnings.

His second divorce was to pediatrician Monica Turner, who he was married to from 1997 to 2003. The Washington Post shows that she accused him of cheating and spending too much money. In the end, Turner walked away with $6.5 million in the settlement and Tyson’s Connecticut mansion. She also got their Bethesda, Maryland mansion, per the Washingtonian. In 2009 Tyson married Lakiha Spicer, and they’re still together as of 2022. 

“That’s why I got married three times, ’cause I can’t live without a wife,” Tyson admitted on rapper T.I.’s podcast “ExpediTIously” in 2020. “I need somebody to listen to … I can’t think on my own. I need somebody to listen to.”

If you or someone you know is dealing with domestic abuse, you can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−7233. You can also find more information, resources, and support at their website.
