Mike Tyson Talks Drug Use, Beating Prostitutes In Explicit Interview
In a recent interview with Robin Leach for Las Vegas Weekly, former boxing heavyweight champ Mike Tyson gives an "Undisputed Truth" into a life of drugs, prostitutes, paranoia, his life now. Tyson also discusses the man he is today, and the fact that he's grown as a man, and that he's clean and happy. In the conversation, he holds back very little. It's a bit shocking at times too!Talking about the lowest point in his life, where he wasn't sure if life would be worth living:
"Laying in bed in a hotel room -- I try never to be alone, even if it’s a prostitute, a dog. This is really dark. I am in my hotel suite, I’ve got seven women there, and I have a morphine drip, and I had my cocaine, and I had my Cialis, I had my marijuana, I had the Hennessy, and I am at my lowest point because I got paranoid and I thought these women were trying to rob me and set me up. I started beating them. I was in a dark place. There was a purpose, though, because I didn’t want to give them any more of my soul."
He also talks about the happiest moment in his life:
"Let me see, I got together with my wife, Kiki, and I had a commitment that was really good stuff. It’s not every day hunky-dory at home, but I know what I had before and what it could be like before, and it was really dark and nasty. I don’t want to go back there."
On getting clean and the man he is today:
"Oh, man. I am just very grateful to be here -- my heart should have blown apart. I was sweating wide awake. No more cocaine. No more. Three years clean."
