Tyson gets married for the 3rd time.

I felt a bit sorry for this guy after his little girl died. But to get married two weeks after your little girl dies seems a bit low to me. I got two kids and couldn't imagine losing either one of them. (I have lost my nephew when he was 12. and that took me a few months to get over.) I just don't understand how you can have a wedding two weeks later.


LAS VEGAS (AP)—Boxer Mike Tyson has married for a third time, two weeks after his 4-year-old daughter died in a tragic treadmill accident.

The owner of the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the former heavyweight champion and his bride, Lakiha Spicer, exchanged vows Saturday in a short, private ceremony.

Chapel owner Shawn Absher says the couple wed about 10 p.m. after arriving at the hotel from the Clark County marriage bureau in a chapel-owned limousine.

County marriage records in Las Vegas show the 42-year-old Tyson and 32-year-old Spicer got a marriage license about 30 minutes before their ceremony.

Tyson’s daughter Exodus died in May. The girl suffocated after she either slipped or put her head in the loop of a cord hanging under a treadmill’s console in her Phoenix home. Tyson’s agent, Harlan Werner, told the AP that Spicer is not Exodus’ mother.

At the risk of drawing the ire of Stl Sluggers, I'm going to have to disagree. He's still grieving over his daughter, I'm sure. People have done a lot stupider and more destructive things than rush into a marriage while grieving over a great loss. It's not as if they had some grand ceremony and huge celebration. I'm certainly not going to blame or judge Iron Mike for getting married only a couple weeks after his daughter died.

Yeah I don't see the big deal. In fact for all we know he had been planning a big wedding but in the wake of his daughters death decided on exchanging vows in a small chapel in Vegas. I personally probably would have waited either way, but yeah I'm not going to judge the guy.
