Monica Turner: Where is Mike Tyson’s Second Wife Now? What Is She Doing?

The two-part documentary series “Mike Tyson: The Knockout” covers every element of the former professional boxer’s rise, fall, and return to his line of work in great detail. It goes in-depth on how Michael “Mike” Gerard Tyson grew to be the man he is today by including his 1992 rape conviction as well as personal and romantic issues. Naturally, his marriages were revealed as a result, and Monica Turner, his second wife, who had stuck by him through the most trying circumstances in his life, received special attention. Let’s now learn more about her, shall we?

Who is Monica Turner?

Monica Teresa Turner, who was born and reared in Washington, D.C., accidentally ran across Mike Tyson in 1990 at a party that actor-comedian Eddie Murphy had at his New Jersey home. They connected right away, and they remained in touch over the years that followed. In order to maintain their relationship, Monica visited the boxer every two weeks while he was in jail on rape and deviant behaviour charges. Several accounts claim that the pre-med student and beauty contestant frequently skipped class to see him. So they were married following Mike’s release and some period of calm.

Only their closest friends and family were invited to Monica and Mike’s Muslim wedding, which took place in April 1997. They made the decision to establish their base in Maryland, where they meant to live quietly, but things didn’t turn out the way they had hoped. Son Amir and daughter Rayna were greeted with open arms, but Monica was frequently left to care for them on her own because Mike worked long hours and was frequently out of the country. In the end, Michael Steele’s half-sister filed for divorce in the early months of 2002, citing Mike’s alleged adultery and lavish spending patterns.

Where is Monica Turner Now?

As someone who has always kept her life private, Monica Turner has never discussed her turbulent marriage to Mike Tyson in public, either during or after their divorce proceedings. We only know that it took the couple several months of discussions to get to a $6.5 million settlement, which the judge approved in January 2003. We presume that one of the reasons Monica was granted primary custody of their two children was because she was the one raising their two kids as well as Mike’s daughter from a prior relationship. In spite of everything, Mike still seems to be close with his kids today.
