Mike Tyson, Wife Renew Vows With Surprise Vegas Bash
Knockout, throwdown party!
Mike Tyson and wife Lakiha Spicer pulled a fast one on 150 guests in Vegas on Saturday. Inviting pals to what they called a joint birthday bash, the spouses of two years surprised their friends at the M Resort Spa Casino with an elaborate wedding vow renewal.
The former heavyweight champ, 44, and Spicer, 34, first tied the knot in a quickie Vegas ceremony back in 2009. But for the two-year mark, after announcing the true nature of the party to guests, Spicer changed from her cocktail dress into a mermaid-cut white gown and veil, Page Six reports. She and Tyson, wearing a black tux with a satin white tie, then exchanged vows in a traditional Muslim ceremony.
The ceremony was followed by an epic party featuring a live band, a wedding cake and an elaborate candy station. Guests included directors Brett Ratner and James Toback plus Morocco, the couple's 6-month-old son.
A father of eight, Tyson was previously wed to Monica Tyson (they divorced in 2002) and actress Robin Givens (for one year, in 1989).
