Before there were Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Aniston or Gwyneth Paltrow, Brad Pitt had one rather unfortunate hook-up with Robin Givens, the then-wife of Mike Tyson. In a new interview, the former heavyweight champion opens up about the time he found a very young Pitt in bed with his wife.
“I was getting a divorce. I was going to my lawyer’s office to divorce her that day but I wanted to sneak in a quickie. This particular day, someone beat me to the punch,” Tyson tells Yahoo! interviewer Graham Bensinger. “I guess Brad got there earlier than I did. I was mad as hell. You should’ve saw his face when he saw me.”
At the time, Pitt was best known for his guest appearances on TV shows like “Dallas,” and was not the household name he is today. As more than two decades have passed since the tryst — and Tyson and Givens divorced in 1989 — Tyson makes it clear that there are no hard feelings.
“I hope Brad [doesn’t] think I’m mad at him. I’m not mad at this guy,” Tyson explains with a laugh.
