50 has purchased a mansion that once belonged to former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. The property is 48,000 square feet and was was purchased for $4.1 million, according to town records.

The mansion was purchased from Tyson’s ex-wife, Monica Turner Tyson and includes 52 rooms, servants’ quarters and a boathouse. The boxer signed the house over to her for $1 in 2002 as part of a divorce settlement. Tyson purchased the house in 1996 for $2.7 million.

Local police told The Herald of New Britain they have taken note of his history. “He is a citizen and we are concerned for his safety as well as the safety of the public,” said police Capt. James Rio.
