Mike Tyson faces $5m lawsuit for reportedly raping another woman in night club early 1990s

Mike Tyson, the living boxing legend, has himself embroiled in yet another scandal. This time, a woman accused Mike of raping her viciously as they were riding in a limousine.

This is not the first time that Tyson has been accused of rape; in 1992, Iron Mike was found guilty of raping an 18-year-old lady and sentenced to six years in prison for his crime.

Iron Mike was released from prison after serving only three years and went on to continue his career as a boxer.

Mike was recently accused by an unidentified woman of raping her in the 1990s; the woman is now seeking $5 million in damages. She claimed that as she went into Tyson’s limousine to pick up her friend, Tyson began touching her and making kissing gestures. She begged him to stop multiple times, but Tyson continued raping her after she urged him to stop.

”As a result of Tyson’s rape, I suffered and continue to suffer from physical, psychological, and emotional injury. I have experienced feelings of guilt, loss of self-respect, shame, embarrassment, sadness, anger, depression, anxiety, violent tendencies, drug and alcohol addiction, and confusion resulting from the brutal rape.” The woman expressed.

The woman, who did not wish to reveal her name in order to protect her privacy, spoke about how she had endured mental and physical suffering over the course of her life ever since she was molested by Mike.

‘I have developed lifelong problems including but not limited to issues with sex, and with being touched as a result of the rape. I have been unable to maintain and/or develop healthy relationships with men or anyone in general. I have experienced extreme emotional suffering including but not limited to nightmares, panic attacks, and flashbacks.’

‘The baddest guy on the planet’ has also been involved in a number of controversies in the past, such as domestic violence towards her wife, biting Holyfield’s ear in a boxing match, giving a death threat to Lennox Lewis, illicit drug use, and so on.
