Runaway bride! SMH. Poor Iron Mike — some folks think his career is a minstrel show but it sounds like his life is a straight soap opera!
Via Confidenti@l reports:
Mike Tyson came to the 67th annual Tony Awards to be an unlikely chorus boy in “Bigger,” the opening number for the honors which kicked off the night’s broadcast. But bigger things would kick off later between him and his wife, Lakiha ‘Kiki’ Spicer, at the post-Tony gala in the Plaza Hotel uptown.
Iron Mike was mobbed the moment he arrived at the posh hotel by fans demanding photos. Our spies counted 40 people in just seven minutes scrambling to take a photo with the former boxing champ.
His better half was not pleased with all the attention and let Tyson know about it. “I wanna go,” Spicer was overheard telling him. Tyson was there because he had debuted on Broadway in his one-man show “Mike Tyson: The Undisputed Truth,” which covered his career ups and downs — one being his infamous biting off a chunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear in a bloody bout.
Mike shot back, “Listen, baby, I gotta be nice,” to Spicer. His fuming wife snapped, “Of course you gotta be nice,” and stormed off.
Our spies then saw Tyson chase after Spicer and grab her hand, pulling her toward the exit. She astonishingly broke free and ran off, with Iron Mike in hot pursuit.
The once undisputed heavyweight champion of the world spent the next 20 minutes searching the upstairs of the Plaza looking for her — still stopping to pose for photos along the way — before finally locating her in the Palm Court and patching things up. The couple left the party shortly before 1 a.m.
Sounds like trouble in paradise. Gotta wonder if Mike has been caught creeping lately.
Guess that’s what matrimony-dom is all about… working through the rough patches. This chick better get over it though — these days Mike is dependent on his fans to keep the checks coming in!
