TYSON FURY has appeared to defend splashing the cash on his wife Paris as the couple celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary.
Paris, who was recently a guest panellist on the hit ITV show Loose Women, uploaded a video of gifts received from her boxing champion hubby.
Among them were some Thornton’s chocolates and some flowers… alongside a pair of £890 J’Adior Slingback Pumps and some Christian Dior Dway Slides, which retail for £550.
Next to the clip, the 30-year-old mother of five wrote: “Happiness is the secret to all beauty. There is no beauty without happiness.
“12 years married to my best friend, my other half, my soulmate. @gypsyking101 thanks for a great day and the beautiful presents you surprised me with.”
Most of the comments were positive, with fellow boxers, TV stars and friends passing on their congratulations.
But one Instagram user called Paris post ‘tasteless’ and asked ‘what about people who have nothing?’
WBC heavyweight king Tyson decided to comment on his wife’s video, insisting that ‘material things will have no real use for us’.
He wrote: “I’m not the perfect husband or the perfect man, but I have and always will love my wife Paris.
“There were times when Paris earned more money than me. My career and life hasn’t always been sunshine and rainbows but now it is I’m happy for every day god sends me.
“Material things are of no real use to us as humans as everything on earth will rot and rust eventually, but our love for 1&other will last forever!
“I would happily give up everything for my loved ones and live in a tent outside as the most important things are free. We are on this planet for a short timeframe then we leave.
“Enjoy the time you have together with the people that matter in your life, the most precious thing I own is contentment and happiness and a well mind.”
Celebrating their anniversary is a bit of good news for Tyson after being frustrated in his bid to get back to boxing this year.
The trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder, who Fury battered in February to become the new WBC champ, was shelved.
The American’s team insist he is not dodging the fight and has instructed his legal team to thrash out Part III.
Fury then wanted a homecoming fight on December 5, but plans for that fell through and the Gypsy King will have to wait until next year for a ring return.
