Witness States: Mike Tyson Paid 50 Thousand to Have Gang Member Killed

 src=A government testified last week that former heavyweight champ put up $50,000 for a hit on gang members suspected of killing his bodyguard in 2000. The allegation was made by Dwayne Meyers, a reputed former member of the Cash Money Brothers gang, the AP reports.

“We got word Mike Tyson and [another man] had both contributed $50,000 a piece for the murders of Cash Money Brothers,” said Meyers. Meyers testified at the trial of Abubakr Raheem, who’s accused of driving a getaway car after turf-war killings. Meyers claimed the former heavyweight champion put up the money retaliate for the June 2000 slaying of his close friend and former bodyguard, Darryl “Homicide” Baum. The alleged contract was never carried out.

One of the men Tyson allegedly wanted dead was Damien “World” Hardy – the head of the defunct gang and former boyfriend of rapper , say other sources. Earlier this month, Tyson quipped that he fears for his life because of the enemies he’s made over the years. If these recent allegations are true, the troubled boxer’s anxiety may be valid. [source]
