Mike Tyson leaves the hotel with his wife Lakiha, son Morocco, and daughter Milan(not pictured) in Warsaw, Poland.


Tyson bared all on April 14, 2012 in his one man show “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth-Live on Stage.” Time states,

“He tries to wrap up his saga (the difficult childhood, run-ins with the law, biting off Evander Holyfield’s ear) as a tale of redemption, ending the show by talking about finding love, with his wife Kiki and his eight children. It is poignant as he touches upon his daughter’s tragic death in 2009 after being injured in a bizarre choking accident on a home treadmill, and after a series of photographs of his kids, he says he is ‘trying to be a better father and husband.’ With all his troubles, the show becomes a bit of a cliffhanger: will he be able to keep it together for the rest of his life?”

The retired boxer recently told USA Today that he is working to satisfy his wife Lakiha. Tyson states, “I want to die being a married guy. I don’t wanna die doin’ cocaine or liquor. A friend said, ‘Mike, don’t you feel stupid, your old (expletive) dealing with these two young kids?’ That is what I want in my life. I want to be hen-pecked, man. I don’t want to be 55 and still (acting) tough with cigarettes rolled up in my sleeve. I just want to have some balance. Either I’m a pussycat or a blood-thirsty conqueror. But I’m trying to work it out. I just want my wife to really like me. I don’t want her to leave me and take the kids.”

Mike and Lakiha have two children together. He fathers eight children in all.
