Mike Tyson also revealed that he knows something that his wife doesn’t. He said that his wife, Lakiha Spicer, put a ‘tracker’ in a new truck that she gifted to him.

I know now. Why did she do that, put a tracker on the car?” said Mike Tyson.

Mike Tyson and Lakiha Spicer have had their ups and downs

Tyson admits to not always being faithful to his current wife, Lakiha ‘Kiki’ Spicer. He acknowledges that he regrets doing those things and has even called himself an ‘idiot’ for his lack of commitment.

“At that particular time I was an idiot and I believed that it was normal protocol that everyone should want to be with me. That’s what I was taught in life. I didn’t know people could care about you because you’re really not that bad of a schmuck,” said Mike Tyson.

Despite his lack of initial commitment, Lakiha Spicer never gave up on Mike Tyson. She admits to trying to step out of their relationship but says they would eventually get back together.

I could never really get him out of my system. I would try and then we would get back with each other.

“He’s the only person I was ever able to fall back in love with several times. Usually, when I’m done with someone I’m over it. I’d think I’d have him out of my system and then we’d start talking again and it was just on again,” said Lakiha Spicer.
