Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is starring in a live stage show called Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth similar to the show that Charlie Sheen did last year. Recently, Tyson sat down with “Lifestyles Of The Rich and Famous” host Robin Leach for an in-depth interview about his life and the stage show.
Needless to say, Mike told Robin some CRAZY stories about his past life, like this little doozy right here:
Robin Leach:Happiest moment of your life?
Mike Tyson: Let me see, I got together with my wife, Kiki, and I had a commitment that was really good stuff. It’s not every day hunky-dory at home, but I know what I had before and what it could be like before, and it was really dark and nasty. I don’t want to go back there.
I’m just learning about life. All this is new to me, being with a woman, being committed to her and these children — that is pretty interesting. Being 45 years old and being a committed husband and father, that is new. That is a new goal I am taking in with an open hand. It is hard stuff, dude.
RL: And the lowest point in your life where you thought it wasn’t worth living?
MT: Laying in bed in a hotel room — I try never to be alone, even if it’s a prostitute, a dog. This is really dark. I am in my hotel suite, I’ve got seven women there, and I have a morphine drip, and I had my cocaine, and I had my Cialis, I had my marijuana, I had the Hennessy, and I am at my lowest point because I got paranoid and I thought these women were trying to rob me and set me up. I started beating them. I was in a dark place. There was a purpose, though, because I didn’t want to give them any more of my soul.
So this is my devil, this is where I am, I am locked up alone. There is nobody there telling me that I’m doing too much. That is the devil, he won. I kicked them all out. So that was my lowest point. Oh, man. I am just very grateful to be here — my heart should have blown apart. I was sweating wide awake. No more cocaine. No more. Three years clean.
RL: And with Cialis and Viagra?
MT: Well, that is my personal life! I’m not going to talk about Viagra and Cialis. I don’t need it, but sometimes you just need that extra boost. Anything for an extra boost. The extra boost will send you to another place.
Damn Mike! You can’t lay hands on the hoes man, you just can’t!
LMAO @ “that extra boost”, that isht is hilarious!
Hit the flipper to watch Mike speak about his relationship with Tupac and the night he was gunned down in Las Vegas.
