The Softer Side Of Iron Mike: Tyson Gets Teary For New Broadway Show, Talks Giving Up “Using Drugs And Being A Pig And Stuff”

- By Bossip Staff


Mike Tyson isn’t afraid to show you his vulnerable side! The boxing champ has been discussing how he’s turned over a new leaf with his career in entertainment, specifically with his new one man show coming to Broadway:

Mike Tyson says some topics in his “raw” one-man Broadway show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,” could bring him to tears onstage. “I have to be careful. I can’t stay on certain subjects for a long time, because I might cry,” the former champ said while announcing that the show he debuted in Las Vegas is coming to the Longacre Theatre for a limited run of six performances, starting July 31. Tyson’s hoping the Spike Lee-directed show will be part of a run of projects for him and his co-writer, wife Kiki Spicer. “This is what we decided to do after I gave up using drugs and being a pig and stuff,” Tyson quipped. “I’ll do other people’s stories, and I’ll do other characters. This is just the beginning.” Tyson said his performance, which addresses his time in prison for rape and rocky relationships, including his time with ex-wife Robin Givens, will be “raw,” but, “not raw in a vulgar sense . . . I’m just . . . vulnerable and telling you where I’m from, and how this happened, and how I [lost] all this damn money, and how I have all these children, and how I go to prison.”

This is a genius idea. Tyson’s film was a big success and the guy is really entertaining when he’s talking about himself. But how cute is that picture from Monday of him carrying his sleeping daughter Milan?

Precious right?
