Look Inside Mike Tyson’s Lavish Las Vegas Pad That He Purchased Following His Financial Woes
Former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson‘s recent scuffle with an overzealous fan reminded many people how he earned the nickname “Iron Mike” and where he goes to get away from the prying public.
Tyson resides in a Mediterranean-style mansion in the Seven Hills gated golf-course neighborhood in the Henderson suburbs near Las Vegas, Nevada, according to SportSkeeda.
The famed pugilist dropped $2.5 million for the 10,400 square feet property in 2016. It features a double-height foyer accented with marble flooring, an iron staircase, six bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a fireplace, and a private balcony, SportSkeeda reports.
Luxury Homes of Las Vegas posted the previous listing.
Other amenities include two casitas, one whole apartment, a media room, a wine cellar, two grand master suites, a swimming pool, a spa, an outdoor kitchen, and a spacious covered patio, according to the New York Post.
The “The Baddest Man on the Planet” may have to deal with another potential financial fallout by a passenger he allegedly assaulted on a JetBlue flight from San Francisco to Miami.
The reported victim, Melvin Townsend III, is a 36-year-old man who holds an extensive criminal record, including convictions for fraud, grand theft, burglary, possession of controlled substances, and trafficking stolen property, TMZ reports.
Video footage shows Townsend constantly harassing Tyson during the boarded flight while sitting behind him. Tyson’s team claims Townsend hurled a water bottle at the heavyweight champ.
“Unfortunately, Mr. Tyson had an incident on a flight with an aggressive passenger who began harassing him and threw a water bottle at him while he was in his seat,” said Tyson’s reps to The Post in a statement.
“Officers arrived and detained two subjects that were believed to be involved in the incident. One subject was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries. That subject provided minimal details of the incident and refused to cooperate further with the police investigation,” said San Francisco police in a statement.
