Mike Tyson and Wife Lakiha Spicer Renew Their Wedding Vows
By Christo Varghese Posted Jun 28th 2011 04:15AM
TMZ is reporting that Tyson and Spicer invited hundreds of their friends to celebrate a joint birthday party the couple were throwing for each other at the M Resort in Las Vegas last week - Saturday June 25, but in reality the birthday party was a cover for a secret vow renewal.
Tyson even tweeted about the fake event, "My wife & I are getting ready to host friends & family tonight. Many we haven't seen in years. It's going to be a great night."
After the guests arrived at the party, the couple disappeared for a while only to later re-emerge dressed in wedding outfits.
And then to the amazement of the surprised crowd, the couple then proceeded to renew their wedding vows in a traditional Muslim ceremony.
Sources are quoted saying that the party was "awesome" and the couple and their friends partied it up in the hotel's ballroom with a live band.
When Tyson married Lakiha back in 2009, they did so at a small wedding chapel in Las Vegas and the entire event was shrouded in secrecy as Tyson's 4-year-old daughter Exodus had passed away 2 weeks earlier.
It is reported that the couple decided to do a big "wedding" party this time to make up for the previously low key event and the skipped celebrations.
