New allegations of rape have been made against former world boxing champion Mike Tyson (56), who has already been convicted of rape and sexual harassment. As court documents that became known on Tuesday show, a woman from the US state of New York has accused him.
He raped her in a limousine in the early 1990s. The plaintiff is demanding five million dollars from the former sports star, her identity has not been made public.
According to the documents, the plaintiff stated that she met Tyson in a nightclub at the time. She followed him to his limousine, where he attacked and raped her. She suffered “physical, psychological and emotional pain” from which she still suffers today. Tyson did not initially respond to the allegations.
Born in 1966 and notorious for his heavy punches throughout his career, Tyson is considered one of the greatest heavyweight boxers in history. However, he repeatedly made negative headlines and got into trouble with the law. In 1992 he was sentenced to six years in prison for raping a Miss Black America contestant. The last three years have been suspended. (SDA)
