On “Oprah,” Mike Tyson says he has no intention of ever finding out the specific details surrounding the death of his 4-year-old daughter Exodus in May.
“Because if I know, then there might be a blame for it,” Tyson, 43, explains to Winfrey. “And if there’s somebody to blame for it, there will be a problem.”
Exodus was found unconscious by her 7-year-old brother, Miguel. She was entangled in a cord, dangling from an exercise treadmill, and subsequently died of her injuries.
Tyson says he is able to keep from reacting in anger by focusing on his family. “I was so happy that I had the tools in life, you know, to not go in that direction because I’ve been that direction,” Tyson told Winfrey. “My family – that’s my biggest asset.”
After he refers to his daughter as “a little angel,” Winfrey replies that she believes that’s what Exodus has become.
“I don’t know, Oprah,” says Tyson. “I’d like to believe that, and that sounds great.”
