Are you surprised?
Maybe, the better question is would you be surprised by anything Mike Tyson said?
During a sit-down interview with ESPN’s Rick Reilly after opening night of the show, he revealed a few of the life events that ultimately didn’t make the cut in his show. Like, you know, the time he went to jail and somehow managed to get a prison official pregnant.
“I didn’t talk about getting a prison official pregnant,” he said. “Oh, yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But, she had no baby.”
“Staff happens,” Mike? Only to you. He didn’t stop there, either. He also said that he used to get a morphine drip, solely because he liked how he felt when he was on it. “I just liked morphine,” he said, “but I had to take a lot of it because it didn’t stay in your system for a long time.”
And—no surprise here—Tyson also told Reilly that he used to really, really like to do other kinds of drugs, too. “I’d have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there,” he said. “That’s just how I lived my life.”
Still amazing Mike Tyson is alive. Not many people thought he would make it to 40 and listening to his stories you wonder how he ever did.
But, he has pulled through and seems to be enjoying life.
