Former heavyweight boxing champ, Mike Tyson, impregnated a prison official while serving time behind bars on a rape charge back in 1992. During a post-show interview with ESPN’s SportsCenter, Tyson was quoted having said:
“I didn’t talk about getting a prison official pregnant. [Excuse me? You got a prison official pregnant, while you were IN prison?] Oh, yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby.”
Tyson went onto discuss his recreational drug use as he was quoted having said:
“I just liked morphine, 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.”
In regards to the former boxing champion’s 2006 arrest in Scottsdale, Arizona for possession of cocaine, Mike said:
“The cops told me, ‘Mike, we were gonna let you go, but you just came right at us!’ I was driving right at them. They were going to shoot me! If I hadn’t gone to rehab right then, I’d have been a dead [expletive].”
With broke boxers like Joe Louis resorting to wrestling and Jake LaMotta performing stand-up, Tyson appears to be doing quite well rebounding with tickets to his Las Vegas show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, going for $99 a pop.
