Mike Tyson is a polarizing figure — if he isn't being given rave reviews for his one-man Broadway show, then his involvement in movies and advertising is being protested against because he's been convicted of sexual assault. The one thing that goes beyond doubt, though, is that he's taking his role as a father seriously.
We have seen nothing but love from him for his little ones. In a new interview, here's what he said about them and what he wants them to learn from his life:
“I want [my kids] to be happy and to understand happiness is an internal struggle—it has nothing to do with material possessions. No one can make you happy but yourself. Happiness is a choice. I have learned that lesson later in life. However, I would like my children to understand this earlier than I did. I could save them a lot of misery.”
Has Mike Tyson reformed completely? Is it time to forgive him for his dark past?
We think that's down to the individual, but nobody can say he isn't trying. We just hope he continues to follow through with being a responsible person, and a loving father!
