Tyson Fury’s children have the option to leave school at 11 years old and follow in the tradition of Travellers.
British professional boxing champion Tyson and his wife Paris met when they were just 14 and now have six kids of their own – Venezuela, 12, Prince John James, nine, Prince Tyson II, four, Valencia, three, and baby Athena who arrived prematurely last August.
In their 2020 documentary, it was revealed Tyson who has just beaten Dillian Whyte during their world title fight at Wembley, said he preferred his kids to stay in education at school.
Paris explained: “Me and Tyson have talked about the kids going to school. Tyson wants the boys to go into education but I don’t; it’s just not what we’ve ever done.
“I was brought up as a Traveller and I want my kids to be brought up as Travellers.
“They will probably leave school at 11 and they’ll be educated at home from then. The boys will take a wife and make their family and the girls will take a husband and make their family.
“Until they take a husband or wife they won’t be leaving the home and I wouldn’t want them to.”
Tyson said: “You say it’s something we’ve never done but I’m a precedent setter, am I not?
“Now I’ve set these laws and precedents, you watch how many will follow. The parents of these kids, I call them dream killers. Just because something went wrong in their life you can’t pawn it off on your kids.”
