Mike Tyson spent $2.5M to move down the street

Mike Tyson recently spent $2.5 million to move four doors down from his $1.5 million house in Seven Hills.

The old $1.5 million place, according to Luxury Homes of Las Vegas, is a five-bedroom, six-bathroom, 5,740-square-foot family home in Henderson.

And now, an undisclosed potential buyer’s contract has been accepted for an unlisted price, though money hasn’t changed hands yet, for his last place at 1294 Imperial Dr., which looks like this:

A 25-foot lighted waterfall entrway; sunken great room; bar; fireplace; slate, marble and hardwood floors; chef’s kitchen; floating tub; chandeliers; a lighted courtyard garden; backyard infinity pool; three garages, balcony, guarded gate and country club.

He reportedly bought that house for $1.75 million from former NBA pro Jalen Rose in 2007.

The new $2.5 million pad is 10,401 square feet, with six bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, on .76 acres, plus a pool and spa.

Tyson has several children in school here.

“Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” is currently running through June 26 at the MGM’s Brad Garrett Comedy Club.


Kevin Federline is Las Vegas’ newest resident DJ. Starting Saturday night, he’ll be the music man at Crazy Horse III strip club, returning once every few months.

Crazy Horse III is 2.8 miles away from Planet Hollywood, where his ex, Britney Spears, headlines.

But Federline tells me his strip club gigs usually fall on weekends when Spears enjoys breaks in Los Angeles. In fact, Spears won’t be on stage here again until April 6.

They get along now, he says.

“We talk, but I’d say 98 percent of it is about what’s going on with our children,” Federline says, “making sure everybody is OK.”

Their lives have gotten easier compared with some years ago, he says, without mentioning all the troubles that landed Spears in Vegas under the legal watch of her father.

“It’s the simple life now, compared to what it used to be,” he says. “Both of us are in a place where we just wish the best for each other.”

Federline DJ’d at the club a few times last year, with wife Victoria Prince by his side (they got hitched at the Hard Rock Hotel three years ago).

“After Christmas, (Crazy Horse III execs) were like, ‘All right we’re going to sign you up for six, seven or eight dates next year,’” Federline says.

“It’s a different environment for a DJ,” he says. “You can actually play a whole (song), instead of trying to mix every 45 seconds,” because strippers dance to full songs.

“When the girls come up to you and ask you to play a song, of course you’re going to play the song, because they obviously want to dance to that song. It’ll make for a better performance for them, and they’ll love you for it.”

This Saturday’s gig is a week-early birthday party. He turns 38 on March 21.

“I’m going to go on probably between 12 and 1 o’clock. And who knows, I might wind up playing till 5 in the morning. It is my birthday party, right?” he says.

Since we’re on the subject of stripping, how many naked women has Federline seen in person during the entirety of his life?

“Man, I don’t think I can count that high,” he joked.

Then he thought about all the flashing women he saw when he was a professional dancer on international tours with famous musicians.

“Oh, I would say hundreds of thousands,” he said and laughed. “Girls will be girls.”

Federline just shot a music video for a new song, “Hollywood,” coming out in the end of March or early April.

“It’s probably going to go viral. It’s crazy,” he said, but gave no details.

“It’s fun. I’ve learned to have fun, and not take myself seriously. I’m pretty much making fun of myself the whole time — and a few other people.”


Chumlee of “Pawn Stars” just got out of jail on $62,000 bail, after being arrested on weed, meth and unlawful gun charges while being investigated in a sexual assault case.

As of midday Friday, HollywoodLife.com reported Chumlee was still set to spin music at Tru nightclub, 1700 E. Flamingo Road, quoting a manager who hadn’t heard of the arrest and who expected the set to go on with increased security.

However, when I called Tru later in the afternoon, I was told the club hadn’t been able to reach Chumlee’s manager, adding that it was up in the air: “We’re not for sure what’s going on.”


The UFC’s new women’s bantamweight champ, Miesha Tate, gave some lighthearted payback to a Las Vegas Metro officer who was seen looking at her booty with a funny side glance during her UFC 196 weigh-in.

I saw nothing. #thankyoujesus #ufc #mieshatate #thechamp #internationalwomensday #ifbb #booty #bikini #glutes

A video posted by Todd Duffee (@toddduffee) on

Tate went to the Las Vegas Metro Training Academy and had someone shoot an Instagram video of her not peeking at all at the same officer, Russell Mettke, while he pulled his pants up next to her, as if to suggest this is how one gracefully doesn’t ogle a booty.

“Paid him a little surprise visit today,” she wrote on @mieshatate, adding a crying-laughing emoji.


Plastic surgeon Paul Nassif of reality’s “Botched” on E! saw the funny, bawdy “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace on Thursday night.

Carolina Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson partied with friends at a Tao nightclub VIP table in The Venetian on Thursday.
