One of the best in the history of the prestigious art of pugilism, Mike Tyson, has shared a golden-worth photo of his late mother, Lorna May Smith, via his official Instagram account and made a heartbreaking statement on the rare photo of his mother.
Frankly, most of Mike’s followers know nothing about his mother, but today, Mike broke his silence about his late mother, Lorda May Smith, with an emotional statement about his late mother.
Today, Mike found a really rare photo of his mother and jumped to Instagram to share it with his followers. He penned down a touching letter to pay his tribute to his late mother. Also, he shared his little-known detail about his mother and saddened everyone who read his tribute.
Here’s what Mike wrote for his mother:
“My mother in 1947. I just saw this pic for the first time today. She’s 20 years old. She grew up knowing Malcolm X, Miles David, and she knew the original Harlem Globetrotters. She was a first-class dresser—no wonder why I love clothes.
I knew nothing about my mother. She never told me anything except what my dad said to me about her later on in life. I’m proud to be the son of Lorna May Smith.
Her roots are from Charlottesville, Virginia, but she lived in Bedford Stuyvesant, 203 Franklin Ave, between Dekalb and Willoughby. She was a part of the Swing Era.”
Rapper Busta Rhymes commented to support him:
“Beautiful and Powerful Queen.”
Mike’s close friend and successful businessman, John Shahidi, commented:
“She is beautiful. She looks like your oldest daughter.”
