Los Angeles - Mike Tyson is suing a financial services firm affiliated with Live Nation, claiming it cost him more than $5 million due to a former employee's embezzlement and mismanagement.

The lawsuit filed on Wednesday in Los Angeles claims an adviser from SFX Financial Advisory Management Enterprises embezzled more than $300 000 from the former heavyweight boxing champ.

The suit claims the losses hindered Tyson and his wife from emerging from bankruptcy.

SFX is a subsidiary of Live Nation Entertainment Inc.

Messages left for a Live Nation spokesperson and at the Washington, D.C., offices of SFX were not immediately returned.
