Mike Tyson has admitted that he is currently “totally broke”. He filed for bankruptcy in 2003, and has spent years excessively spending and has previously had issues with alcohol and drugs. Tyson says that he was inspired to turn his life around when he was cast to play himself in the comedy The Hangover in 2009.  He has since landed his own reality show which is based on his love of bird racing.

Tyson has now grown used to living more frugally before, and is happy with his third wife, Lakiha Spicer. He says:

“I’m totally destitute and broke. But I have an awesome life, I have an awesome wife who cares about me.”

He also admits that times are hard for him financially:

“No, I’m totally broke. I had a lot of fun. It (going broke) just happened. I’m very grateful. I don’t deserve to have the wife that I have; I don’t deserve the kids that I have, but I do, and I’m very grateful.”
