"Very Happy" Mike Tyson Marries Girlfriend in Vegas

Maybe Mike Tyson is trying to find happiness in mourning.

Adding another chapter to his fascinating, if sad, life story, the fallen heavyweight champ (and current Hangover cutup) married girlfriend Lakiha Spicer in Las Vegas over the weekend—less than two weeks after the tragic death of his 4-year-old daughter, E! News has learned.

The couple exchanged vows at La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel on Saturday night in an intimate, dressed-down affair with no guests present.

Chapel spokesman Shawn Absher says Tyson and Spicer appeared "very happy and very sincere" when a limo picked them up at around 9:15 p.m. The pair obtained a marriage license and then swapped vows 45 minutes later. The bride eschewed a traditional wedding gown in favor of "an appropriate dress," while Iron Mike wore a suit and tie, Absher says.

Tyson, 42, requested that all photos taken of the ceremony be kept private.

The boxing icon's daughter, Exodus Tyson, was taken off life support May 26, a day after accidentally hanging herself on a piece of exercise equipment at the Phoenix home of the child's mother, Sol Xochitl, whom Tyson dated before Spicer.

This is the third marriage for the tattooed brawler, who was infamously wed to Robin Givens for just a year (1988-89) and then to Monica Turner (from 1997 to 2003). He and Spicer have known each other for 10 years.
