Mike Tyson Goes on PTI–talks about Broadway role, Robin Givens Two Timing Ways
Mike Tyson never disappoints during interviews. Today was no different. Tyson appeared on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption and talks about his new role on Broadway, what he’ll be doing and what interested him in doing such a revealing show. Around the 4 minute mark he tells this epic story about Robin Givens sleeping with Brad Pitt during their divorce which, at that time, Mike was still “hitting it” (HIS WORDS NOT MINE).
What I love most about his upcoming turn on Broadway is that it’s totally unexpected. What a great way to expand his career and abilities. Mike Tyson is a lot of things but a one-trick-pony he is definitely not!
On a side note: As someone who grew up during the time that Mike Tyson had the bulk of his troubles (jail, ear biting) and lots of parodies of Mike (In Living Color, for example) it still startles me that he’s so intelligent and eloquent. I should be used to it by now but it’s difficult to adjust to a new perception of someone the cards seemed so stacked against.
