Mike Tyson’s Raw Emotions Surface as Interview Touches Upon His Late 4-Year-Old Daughter


In 2009, athlete-turned-actor also lost his daughter Exodus at a young age. Remembering that moment, he told rapper Eminem that she “killed herself by accident.”

It was a tough time for Tyson who became self-destructive for a while. Here’s a closer look at what police described as a “tragic accident.”

Who Is Mike Tyson’s Wife?

Tyson has been married thrice. In 1988, he married actress Robin Givens at the height of his career.
Tyson remarried in 1997. This time to Monica Turner, a pediatrician.

Two weeks after the death of Exodus in 2009, Tyson tied the knot with his current wife, former federal felon Lakiha Spicer. They have two children, Milan and Morocco. “I’m very happy me and my wife got together, because I don’t know how I would have survived out there,” the Vendetta star told Us Weekly about their family.


What’s Mike Tyson’s Relationship With His Kids Like?

Tyson is a proud family man. In a chat with Cedric the Entertainer in March 2023, he said: “All my kids know each other hang out with each other let’s all know each other I don’t want to hide anybody from anywhere I told my kids to know each other no yeah go out together go out I’m travel go just hang out together what family do.”

In a 2021 episode of Hotboxin podcast, Tyson reflected on the life of his then-12-year-old daughter, Milan compared to his at that age. “She is a smart a** at 12. Spoilt, have everything,” he said. “I used to rob children like that. Now, I raise children like that. Life is great.” The Ip Man star has been open about his rough childhood.

“I never saw my mother happy with me and proud of me for doing something,” he shared in 2010. “She only knew me as being a wild kid running the streets, coming home with new clothes that she knew I didn’t pay for. I never got a chance to talk to her or know about her. Professionally, it has no effect, but it’s crushing emotionally and personally.”



What Happened To Mike Tyson’s Daughter Exodus?

Speaking about Exodus’ cause of death back then, police sergeant Andy Hill said that “somehow, she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console; it’s kind of a loop. Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it.”

In a viral video from years ago, Tyson got upset when an interviewer asked him about his daughter’s death. “This is my best thinking at the time. Get my gun, automatic, just like it and you just go crazy,” he said of rushing to the hospital at that time.

“Regardless, that just my first thought,” he continued. “But when I went to the hospital, the people that were there was. They are up there because their kids are dead too or about to die. So what the hell am I?”

He then entered a dark phase where he “did co–ine for a week” as he “had to get high.” He noted that he “had to back then” and he “couldn’t handle it at all.”

After a long pause, Tyson seemingly lost it. He looked straight into the Real Sports journalist’s eyes and said: “You have to go…you understand? Thank you.”

He walked back upstairs of what looked like his house and burst into tears. The reporter later apologized. “I have to grow up,” Tyson responded. “It’s tough. I have to be a man and stop crying.”
