Mike Tyson almost murdered Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt should be thankful for every step he takes, sunset he sees, and fan he bangs, because he was almost murdered by Mike Tyson back in the late 80s. Via the San Francisco Chronicle:
Former boxer Mike Tyson still chuckles about the day he faced off with his estranged wife Robin Givens’ new man Brad Pitt at her home. The fighter was hoping to “sneak in” a quick sex session with his ex before filing divorce papers, and he was not expecting the actress to have company when he called round.
Tyson tells Yahoo sports anchor Graham Bensinger, “I guess Brad got there earlier than I did… I was getting a divorce, I was going to my lawyer’s office… but I wanted to sneak in a quickie… Before I would go to my lawyer’s office to say she’s a pig… I would go to her house and have sex with her. This particular day someone beat me to the punch.”
It was awkward at the time, but Tyson insists he doesn’t hold a grudge: “I hope Brad don’t think I’m mad at him… I was mad as hell (at the time). You should have saw his face when he saw me!”
Wow, I can’t believe that two decades later we’re finding out that Brad Pitt was giving Robin Givens the hard salami. What’s even more surprising is that the Mike Tyson of those days decided against pulling out Brad’s spleen and shoving it up his rectum. See how you children are lucky to be living today? Back then, if you wanted to know about celebrity gossip you had to go to a magical place called a newspaper stand and buy what our forefathers called a “magazine.” Magazines were like giant Applebee’s menus, except with more pages and less content. Yeah, in the good ol’ days, Mike Tyson sold a lot of magazines — you could say he was the lithographic Lindsay Lohan of his day, only slightly less insane.
