Mikey Lorna Tyson’s Father & Mother Never Married

Mike reportedly began dating Mikey Lorna’s mother Kimberly shortly after his messy divorce from his first wife Robin Givens. Givens is an actress known for her role on the hit sitcom Head of the Class. Givens who described her life with Tyson as, “torture, pure hell, worse than anything I could possibly imagine,” married him in Feb 1988.

However, they couldn’t lead their married life as they had imagined. It was full of drama and physical violence. The former flames eventually divorced a year after their marriage in Feb 1989.

Soon after his separation from Givens, the boxer moved on with Kimberly. Nevertheless, their relationship also couldn’t be perfect. Even Tyson wasn’t initially ready to have a baby with his then-girlfriend Kimberly.

Her Mother Almost Aborted Mikey As Mike Wasn’t Ready To Have Her

Mikey Tyson’s mom told the New York Daily News, “I actually went to the abortion clinic when Mike told me to get rid of her. Now we both shudder to think of what we almost did that day.”

Furthermore, Mike didn’t admit to being Mikey’s biological father until Kimberly filed a paternity suit against him eight months after their daughter was born.

Mikey Spent Her Early Childhood Without Having Father Figure

Tyson was absent for the most part of Mikey’s early life. A year after Lorna’s birth, the boxer’s legal trouble started hitting him up. In July 1991, Tyson was charged with raping an 18-year-old beauty pageant contestant Desiree Washington. He was then prisoned for six years.

Due to these issues, Mike couldn’t become a good father to his daughter Mikey. Mike himself admitted he hadn’t always been a good father in an interview with MTV in 2009.

“I’m really working to recreate my relationship…rebuild my relationship with my children.”

He added,

“When I was Iron Mike Tyson, I neglected my children, I neglected the people I was in love with at one time. I’m getting the brunt of it right now, in this stage in my life. I’m starting to feel the pain and effects from it. I would like to rekindle that relationship.”

But as of now, Tyson has a healthy relationship with all of his kids.
