“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 to 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 Lil Kim, 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]
