Former boxer Mike Tyson appeared on the Conan O’Brien show this past week and told an explicit story about how he turned into a ‘wet noodle’ after seeing his ex with Brad Pitt.
When talking with Conan, he started to reminisce about a situation that happened to him about 20 years ago when he made an attempt to reconcile with his ex-wife, actress Robin Givens.
Givens and Tyson were married for just a year between 1988 and 1989. The relationship was filled with reports of domestic abuse on both sides and violent arguments.
Tyson tells Conan of his marriage to Givens, “During our crazy marriage, I’m saying, ‘You’re a thief, you’re a gold digger,’ and (she’s like), ‘You’re an abuser, you beat me up!’ but… I was just a young kid, and I missed my wife.”
Tyson says that he still to this day has feelings for Givens.
Tyson went on to say after their split, he made an attempt to patch things up with her but got the shock of his life instead.
Tyson says, “I go to the house, I ring the buzzer and no one’s there. I go back to my car… and she drives up… with the handsome Brad Pitt. I thought, ‘Oh man, I’m not gonna get no p***y. F**k!'”
Conan laughingly said that he was Mike Tyson, he could have just beaten-up Pitt. Nevertheless, Tyson recalled that he was so shocked by the sight of it, he couldn’t do anything. “I was just emotionally comatose; I went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle… I had no energy to fight or anything,” Tyson said.
