UPHOLDING TRADITIONS The traveller traditions Paris & Tyson Fury stick to & why leaving school or marrying young isn’t an issue

FROM fast cars to a designer wardrobe, Paris Fury and her multi-millionaire boxing champion husband Tyson can afford to live a very lavish lifestyle.

But despite the fame and fortune, the childhood sweethearts have remained firm in sticking to their Traveller roots.

From marrying young to leaving school early, Fabulous takes a look back at how the loved-up couple have followed their traditional values – and are determined for their six children to do the same…

Just like her boxing champion husband Tyson, who grew up in a gypsy family in Wythenshawe, Manchester, Paris was raised in an Irish Traveller family in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Discussing her upbringing to The Mirror, the mum-of-six explained: “I am a Traveller, I am a gypsy. I was brought up in caravans when I was a little girl.

“It’s just the traditional lifestyle; there’s no real definition, there’s no bloodline because we never went to the doctor to say we are who we are.

“There was no paperwork, there are still gypsies today who can’t read or write; we’re just that old fashioned.”

Earlier this year, Paris, who now lives in a modest £550,000 five-bed, four-bathroom home in Morecambe, Lancashire with her family, shared a snap of a new garden caravan ornament she’d bought.

Alongside the photo, she penned: “For the garden…don’t forget where you come from.”

Similarly to Paris, Tyson – who is nicknamed “The Gypsy King” and is worth an estimated £130 million – also once lived in a caravan on land owned by his dad, John.
