Tyson Fury’s wife Paris tells of horror after husband got into Ferrari and told her ‘I’m not coming back’ while suicidal – The Sun

PARIS FURY has recalled the horror of watching husband Tyson climb into his Ferrari after telling her: "I'm not coming back".

The Gypsy King, 31, bravely opened up about his depression in 2018, revealing he planned to take his own life by crashing his super-car.

Now, wife Paris – who has been with Tyson since they were 15 and 16-years-old – has revealed how the boxing star told her of his heartbreaking plan before driving away.

Speaking on new three-part ITV documentary, Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King, Paris revealed: "I remember when he got in the Ferrari.

"Before he left he said: 'I'm not coming back'.

"Then as the day progressed and his phone was off I started calling his dad.

"I said, 'Have you heard from him because I don't know where he's at? I am worried, he was talking silly this morning.'"

I was mentally unwell and afraid of winning because I knew I wouldn't have a goal anymore and I knew I would come crashing down.

Tyson – who has five children with Paris – has spoken honestly about his problems with depression many times in the past 18 months.

Most recently, while speaking on This Morning at the end of last year, he admitted his mental health problems stemmed from the night he became boxing world champion.

Fury confessed: "People would think that it would be impossible to achieve your dreams – to be a little child and to think you want to be heavyweight champion and to follow that path all the way to becoming heavyweight champion, that would be a fulfilled dream.

"But for me, it was a disaster.

"Even going into that fight I was mentally unwell and quite afraid of winning because I knew I wouldn't have a goal any more and I knew that I would come crashing down."


After winning the fight against Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, Fury promptly retired – something which quickly took its toll on him.

He continued: "I was at a point where I really didn't want to live any more and I really didn't care about anything or anybody.

"Even the things I hold so close to me and the things that I adhere to in my life didn't mean anything anymore.

"I lost the passion to breath fresh air and want to live.

"I was in that car that day and that was the day I made up my mind…

"I had thought about it before and it was well planned – I was going to smash my car into this bridge on the motorway and I thought, this is it."

Tyson concluded by saying he was only stopped by the voice of his family in his head telling him not to go through with it.

Fury called it "the best thing he ever did" as it forced him to seek professional help.

The British star is now back in the ring and will take on Deontay Wilder in their eagerly-anticipated rematch on February 22.

*Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King airs on Thursday at 9pm on ITV.
