Lakiha Spicer had a positive pregnancy test just a week before she was set to start her sentence in federal prison. In 2008, she served six months for her role in a family scheme that embezzled $274,000 from a teaching program she supposedly taught in, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Spicer was found guilty of pocketing $71,000 from a job she didn’t have.  Her mother was also convicted of conspiracy and fraud in the payroll scam.

When she was released, she was three months away from having a child with a man she had been casually dating. Against all odds, that marked the beginning of Mike Tyson’s longest marriage. In Spicer’s absence, Tyson lost himself to drugs while she herself had never been in such a vulnerable position. “We were both destitute,” she said in the 2012 New York Post interview. After welcoming Milan Tyson in late 2008, they leaned on each other and became a family.

However, Tyson’s addiction made him unreliable. He often disappeared, leaving Spicer with only misinformation and speculation about his whereabouts. But despite Tyson’s lifestyle, she stuck by him and did what she could to help him get sober, which the boxer is very thankful for.  “Ask my wife how many times I OD’d,” he said on “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson” in 2022, describing how she would reanimate him with cold compresses.
