Mike Tyson’s Abandoned Mansion – Delightfully Tacky Yet Barely Refined

Mike Tyson has lived in his fair share of mansions, including the one 50 Cent toured on Mtv Cribs and this one in Arizona. A site called Illicit Ohio has discovered a former mansion of Tyson’s, that is unoccupied and abandoned in Ohio. In what is a very strange situation, the site’s editor walked through the property and photographed Iron Mike’s old “crib.” The guy photographs abandoned and empty buildings in Ohio, so he must have a lot of time on his hands.

According to our tour guide, Tyson owned said mansion in the late 1990’s and it’s currently possessed by the Feds. Paul Monea, a career con-artist and Tae-Bo infomercial huckster, bought the mansion from Tyson for $1.3 million, but the Feds seized the property after finding Monea guilty of selling the house and a 40 carat diamond right to an undercover FBI agent, posing as a drug dealer. Monea purchased the place in 1999 and the house has sat unoccupied since Tyson moved out.

From our photo-guide:

Well, the doors are wide open, there is no power, the lawn hasn’t been mowed, and no one seemed to question me walking around it, including a Cop who I’m fairly certain saw me leaving and didn’t seem to mind.

The house features a 10,000 square foot swimming pool room, complete with green and infected water. There’s also a sundae bar, next to the pool for Mike’s homemade banana splits. The house contains a hot tub, waterfall, tiger cages, basketball courts, and a 6 foot tall big screen TV (still in the place). We really dig the zebra striped carpet. I hope the dude who shot these photos doesn’t get arrested for trespassing and if you’re reading this blog don’t loot the place!
