Mike Tyson is dropping some pretty heavy bombshells in his forthcoming memoir, “Undisputed Truth.” The former undisputed heavyweight champ makes some pretty salacious claims about his ex-wife, Robin Givens.
According to the Daily Mail, Tyson writes that Given’s mother, Ruth Roper Givens, was “on the prowl for a big black celebrity for Robin,” and capitalized on his low self-esteem.
Givens was starring on the ABC sitcom, “Head of the Class” when she allegedly showed up to her first date with Tyson accompanied by her mother and her publicist. The couple wed just 11 months later, in February of 1998.
“She was supposedly three months pregnant when we got married,” Tyson writes of Givens.
“Now it was June and she hadn’t gained a pound, so the next thing I knew she was in bed and claimed she had miscarried our baby.”
He goes on to describe a confrontation with Brad Pitt, whom Robin had started dating before ending her marriage to Iron Mike. Tyson says Pitt begged him not to throw a punch.
“You had to see the look on his face,” writes Tyson. “He looked like he was ready to receive his last rites. He also looked stoned out of his gourd.”
