Mike Tyson Speaks Out About Daughter's Death

Mike Tyson is speaking up for the first time about his daughter’s death. Exodus passed away in a tragic accident at the end of May, and since then, Mike and his family have been having a tough time dealing with the loss.

Mike opened up recently in an interview with ET, saying that recent acting roles have helped keep his mind off of his daughter’s death. He just landed a small role in the upcoming Fox series Brothers.

Mike says in the interview, “I really was beating myself up over my daughter. I was staying in the house, depressed; it was a dark moment in my life.”

Mike also says speaking with other people who have lost a child has helped him deal with the grieving process.

“I am working with dealing with it. I have spoken to a lot of people. I have become a member of an exclusive club no one wants to join. I have been told the pain never stops but you get over it. I am going through a process, trying to heal. I am in denial, because I don’t know how to handle it. I don’t know what to do or say. I appreciate everybody who supported me.”

We wouldn’t wish that upon anyone. It’s must be so difficult to try and carry on with your life after you lose a child, and at such a young age! So tragic! We’re happy Mike is trying to pick up the pieces and move forward with his life.
