Mike Tyson reveals that he is a victim of a sexual abuse. The former boxing champion opened up about the story when he stopped by SiriusXM’s Opie Radio show on Wednesday (October 29) saying that he was seven when the incident took place in Brooklyn.
“He snatched me off the street. I was a little kid...[he was an] old man,” Tyson said. “(He) bullied me, sexually abused me and stuff.” Tyson said he managed to escape and he had “never seen him again.” Tyson never spoke to anyone about the abuse.
When asked if the scary experience changed his life, Tyson replied, “I don’t know if it did or not. I don’t always remember, but maybe I do but I don’t. I’m not ashamed or embarrassed by it.”
Tyson is currently promoting his new Adult Swim show “Mike Tyson Mysteries”. On Wednesday night, he appeared on CNN to talk about the cartoon and his book “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” and was unhappy when he got less air time than he expected.
“What the hell did you put me on the show for?” Tyson asked Don Lemon. “I put you on the show to talk about your series. We talked for a long time actually,” the anchor replied. “We talked for a long time off the camera. ... Don Lemon’s full of s**t,” the boxing star said. Lemon laughed uncontrollably following Tyson’s remark.
