Robin Givens’ affair with Brad Pitt is not new news, as former husband of the star, Mike Tyson, dished about it earlier this year in an interview with Conan O’Brien.
Robin Givens and Mike Tyson were a high-flying star couple in the 80s, and Brad Pitt was still and up-and-comer — yet to even have his breakthrough role in Thelma And Louise, which incidentally, was as a wicked playboy.
But if there is anyone you wouldn’t have wanted catching you in bed with their wife back then, it was Mike Tyson, and his tumultuous relationship with actress Givens was well-documented even in the pre-TMZ era.
Earlier this year, Tyson told O’Brien that the Robin Givens and Brad Pitt affair had interfered with his ability to fight, and he explained candidly:
“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 [expletive] tonight!’ I went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle and it just totally overwhelmed me.”
(O’Brien did not ask if Pitt then kidnapped Tyson’s tiger.)
The heavyweight champ again detailed his humiliation upon discovering Robin Givens’ infidelity during an In Depth With Graham Bensinger chat about the time during which the pair were separating.
Tyson said that he and the star of Head Of The Class were breaking up, but the sucker punch of finding Givens in bed with the pretty boy hit him hard:
“I was doing a divorce but I — we — 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 have sex with her. This particular day, someone beat me to the punch. And I guess Brad got there earlier than I did.”
“I was mad as hell. I was going to … you should have saw his face when he saw me.”
But his relationship with Robin Givens is ancient history, and now Tyson is happily wed to third wife Lakiha Spencer.
