Before Brad Pitt was a convinced family man and faithful partner, he was quite the player – Mike Tyson can attest to that. In a brand new interview, the former boxing champ reveals how he caught the actor with his wife Robin Givens.It’s true that he and Robin were getting a divorce, Tyson says in the Yahoo! Sports segment In Depth with Graham Bensinger, but it’s also true that they were still sleeping together.
Check out the video below to hear it straight from Tyson himself.
He says he and Robin would often meet for a romantic rendezvous before they were due in court in the divorce proceedings, but on a particular occasion, Brad Pitt got there before him.
Just in case Brad was wondering (read: trembling in his pants of fear), Mike isn’t mad at him for it, even though he was at the time.
“I was getting a divorce, but... every day, before I would go to my lawyer's office to say ‘she's a pig and stealing,’ I would go to her house to [sleep] with her,” the former boxing champ explains.
“This particular day, someone beat me to the punch. And I guess Brad got there earlier than I did. I was mad as hell... You should have saw his face when he saw me,” Tyson laughs.
He doesn’t say how the weird amorous encounter ended but, considering that he and Givens were eventually divorced, and she went on to date Pitt, we might assume that not even a vase was broken in the course of it, as neither were harsh words spoken.
In the same Yahoo! Sports special, Tyson talks about his famous face tattoo and reveals that he shot his cameo in “The Hangover” while high on cocaine, having only accepted the part because he needed money to fund his addiction.
