It’s indisputable that Mike Tyson has always been a polarizing character.
The heavyweight champion has gone from a wild hoodlum from Brooklyn (or “the Devil’s bedroom,” as he calls it) to a controversy-addled, multimillionaire boxer to an actor to a peace-and-pigeon-loving TV personality.
But his latest revelation is nothing short of shocking.
“I didn’t talk about getting a prison official pregnant,” he told ESPN’s Rick Reilly of topics he left out of his one-man Las Vegas stage show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.”
“Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby.”
Though he doesn’t specify when the incident occurred, Tyson served three of his 10-year sentence behind bars for the alleged rape of an 18-year-old woman. He was released in 1995.
Tyson, 45, is the father of eight children, including two with current wife Kiki.
In addition to his jail time romp, Tyson also discussed his former drug use, running down a laundry list of his drugs of choice.
“I just liked morphine,” he told Reilly, “but I had to take a lot of it because it didn’t stay in your system for a long time. … And I’d have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there.
“That’s just how I lived my life.”
Tyson’s Vegas tell-all ran from Friday to Wednesday.
