The former sports star shared the footage on Instagram, alongside the caption: "Alright.. a few years ago my, brotha and, barber of 30 years, @cutcreator501, had me looking fly with a mohawk. Were you team Mohawk or team no mohawk?

"Full transparency, I won't read your comment if you didn't like it. Haters are just gonna hate. LOLOL @koralchen."

Away from work, Michael enjoys nothing more than spending time with his family. He is a doting father and stepfather to five children, and is primarily based in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
