Who Is Mikey Lorna Tyson’s Mother? Mikey’s Parents Never Married
As we already mentioned Mikey Lorna’s mother Kimberly Scarborough is a certified nurse by profession. Talking about her parents’ relationship, Mike and Kimberly started dating when Mike was in his prime time. They dated for quite a long time but they never could make it to marriage. As we know, Mike is also not as good as he is in the ring when it comes to his love life and family responsibilities.
Currently, Tyson’s ex-girlfriend is in a healthy relationship with her partner Mark Newkirk. Besides, Mikey also has a half-sibling from her mother’s new relationship named Christina Barbie. Christina is a graduate student from Hampton University.

Her Youngest Sibling Died At The Age of Four
Mikey is the oldest daughter among the seven daughters of Mike Tyson. From her father’s first marriage to Robin Givens, she didn’t have any siblings. From her second marriage to Monica Turner, she has two half-siblings, a brother, Amir Tyson, and a sister, Rayna Tyson. Likewise, from her father’s third marriage with Lakisha Spicer, she has two more siblings, Milan and Morocco.
Furthermore, Mikey also has half-siblings from her dad’s relationship with Sol Xochitl, a son Miguel Tyson and a daughter Exodus Tyson. Unfortunately, her youngest half-sibling Exodus died when she was just four years old. Mike Tyson’s daughter was playing on the treadmill, where her neck got stuck in the cord.
Exodus was then immediately admitted to St. Joseph’s Hospital & Medical Center but she could not survive. At the time, Tyson was in Las Vags and as soon as the ex-boxer knew about the incident, he returned back to his home in Phoenix.
Mikey’s Father Tyson Was Absent During Her Early Childhood
Just a year later after Mikey’s birth, her dad Tyson had to face lots of legal trouble. In July 1991, Mike was arrested in charge of raping a then 18-year-old beauty pageant contestant Desiree Washington.
Following the case, the court pleaded him guilty and sentenced him to six years in prison. During those six years, the boxer was absent for most of Mikey’s early life.
Back in 2009, in an interview with MTV, Mike himself revealed that he had not always been a good father,
“I’m really working to recreate my relationship…rebuild my relationship with my children.”
The erstwhile boxer said,
“When I was Iron Mike Tyson, I neglected my children, I neglected the people I was in love with at one time. I’m getting the brunt of it right now, at this stage in my life. I’m starting to feel the pain and effects of it. I would like to rekindle that relationship.”
Also, Mike Tyson initially didn’t want to be a father when Kimberly was still pregnant. He even asked his then-partner to get an abortion and they later went to an abortion clinic.
Her mom once told what happened at the time to the New York Daily News,
“I actually went to the abortion clinic when Mike told me to get rid of her. Now we both shudder to think of what we almost did that day.”
Even after welcoming the daughter, Mike denied being the biological father of Mikey until the court slapped him with parental support. Despite being a little bit irresponsible father initially, Tyson has now a good relationship with his daughter.

Later on, Mikey followed a strict diet plan and exercise routine under her dad’s Mike Tyson guidance to overcome the weight gaining problem. Mikey often posts videos and photos on her social media handle where she shows how hard she is working to lose weight.
Furthermore, once her fans had asked in regards to her constantly posting videos and photos of her doing gym work and the star kid replied,
