Mike Tyson said he was reduced to a “wet noodle” when he saw his ex-wife Robin Givens on the arm of Brad Pitt some 20 years ago.
Speaking in an interview with Conan O’Brien on Tuesday, the former heavyweight champ described how he waited in his car one evening for Givens to return to her home. Despite having split, the pair were still hooking up on a regular basis.
But when Givens showed up on the arm of Pitt, Tyson said he “went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle.”
You read that right – Mike Tyson was actually emasculated. The boxing legend told Conan:
“As I go to my car she drives up … with the handsome Brad Pitt. The first thought I had was, ‘Aw man I ain’t getting’ no p***y tonight!’ I went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle and it just totally overwhelmed me.
“Finally,” Conan said. “A story I can relate to!”
The redhead host also suggested it should have been Pitt who was terrified. After all, he had just appeared in front of Tyson with the boxer’s recently divorced wife. Yet Tyson said the sight of Pitt and Givens had just drained him, admitting:
“I had no energy to fight.”
And Brad Pitt can probably count himself lucky for that.
The video of Conan and Tyson’s Pitt chat is below. You know, while Tyson seems a lot calmer every time I see him interviewed nowadays, he’s still not a man whose patience I’d like to test.
