Mike Tyson has revealed that he got a prison official pregnant while serving time behind bars. The heavyweight boxing champion has recently appeared at his own one-man Las Vegas stage show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, but explained that he didn’t reveal the pregnancy to his audience.
Tyson told ESPN’s Rick Reilly, “I didn’t talk about getting a prison official pregnant,” adding, “Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby.” 45-year-old Tyson, who is the father of eight children, served three years of a 10-year sentence for the rape of an 18-year-old woman. He was released in 1995.
Tyson also opened up about his former drug-use, saying, “I just liked morphine, but I had to take a lot of it because it didn’t stay in your system for a long time.” He went on, “And I’d have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there,” adding, “That’s just how I lived my life.”
