But until a few months ago the house was a £ 35,000 caravan.

Meet Britain’s new “Gypsy Queen” enjoying a Hollywood lifestyle like Paris Fury, who partied alongside her husband Tyson after the heavyweight champion won in Vegas last week .

Today Nikia reveals what happened when she too fell in love with a boxing traveler. Her husband Michael, a cousin from Paris and friend of Tyson, wooed Nikia by buying her a sports car, a Rolex watch and diamond jewelry.

He then persuaded her to trade a sedentary existence for married life in a caravan in Britain’s most famous traveler camp. But the couple had to flee after Nikia was labeled an “aspirant” by the jealous traveler Wags, who was all afraid their men would run away with her.

Michael even had to defend his honor in an unarmed fight. Yet last night, in a defiant message, Nikia said, “I am living proof that you don’t have to live in a trailer to live the life of a gypsy queen. I had the last laugh.

“I have a traveling husband who buys me everything I can wish for and a lifestyle that I would never change. I have the best of both worlds. And what a life it is.

Despite being only 22, glamorous ex-model Nikia drives a £ 40,000 BMW and her jewelry box is full of rings, watches and bracelets costing in the tens of thousands. Those Louboutin bags and Versace dresses hang in a wardrobe full of other designer brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Kurt Geiger, and Louis Vuitton.

“Haters can go to hell”

Most weekends Nikia and Michael, 38, shop at Harrods, then dine at London celebrity haunts like Novikov, Sexy Fish and San Carlo. And they vacationed in Vegas, California, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic.

Nikia said: “Michael and I work hard on everything we buy. Haters can go to hell. Nikia grew up in a three-bed house in Doncaster with her parents and two siblings. She met boxer Michael, who also owns a roofing business, two years ago during a professional fight where she was working as a ring girl.

She said: “He came to talk to me at the bar and I was immediately attracted to him. But when I found out he was a traveler, I was like “oh shit”. It wasn’t a life I wanted for myself.

Determined, however, Michael had other ideas. “I knew right away it was her,” he says. “I realized she wasn’t from the traveling community but I didn’t care.” The couple quickly became close and got married in February 2020 in Vegas, after traveling there to watch Fury’s second fight with Deontay Wilder.

Back in the UK, they had a little service in Doncaster before moving to live at the Dale Farm travelers site near Basildon, Essex, just before the March lockdown. Nikia, whose father was a businessman and mother a dancer, said: “I didn’t like it from the start. I didn’t feel accepted.

“All the girls looked at me strangely because, deep down, I’m not like them. And I didn’t want to be like them, I was just myself and a lot of people didn’t like it. Michael’s family weren’t impressed either.

Desperate to make things work, the couple moved to a nearby camp, but they still weren’t happy. Another problem was that other male travelers tried to chat with Nikia. This led to Nikia, who has 12,000 Instagram followers, naming some of the social media parasites – and Michael had to step in. He said: “Nikia is still being harassed. When she talks about it, it’s not well received.

“On one occasion, a message came to me from another fighter that he wanted to hire me. A hand-to-hand competition was organized. I beat him pretty badly. He beat me pretty badly. It was a tie. But I didn’t let anyone denigrate my wife.

Nikia says they have now found true happiness after moving to a “penthouse apartment” in Slough, Berks. She runs a cosmetics company called Red Hot – what the jealous traveler Wags has dubbed her.

The couple are planning a third wedding in the Maldives, which is more like the ceremonies seen on the cult TV show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. Nikia’s dress will be made from hundreds of Swarovski crystals and the service will cost tens of thousands of pounds.

She said: “It’s hard to be married to a traveler because you are being judged and being talked about. But on the other hand, I really like Michael’s manners and the way he treats me – it’s cool and it comes from his traveling side. He respects me and loves me.

“My mom was really happy for me and my dad was over the moon.

If anyone has something bad to say about us, we will deal with it as a couple.

“But some people in my family were like, ‘no, don’t be with a traveler, he’s going to ruin your life, he’s too old,’ because of our age gap of 16. But at the end of the day , it’s about who I love and who I want.

“Honestly, it makes me really happy that people really hate me. It means that I am doing something good and productive with my life.

Michael added: “I hate when people are horrible with Nikia. I have Nikia’s back, she has mine. If anyone has something bad to say about us, we will treat them as a couple.
