Mike Tyson has been guilty of a lot of things. Now he’s blatantly guilty of T.M.I.
During a visit to the Today Show to promote the Broadway debut of his upcoming one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, the boxing icon, accompanied by director Spike Lee, got a little too candid with co-host Ann Curry.
Discussing his current life as married man, Tyson revealed he was now a vegan. When Curry asked what made him become a vegan the boxing champ replied: “I just threw up the white flag. There was too many prison cells, too many jails, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired. I really got tired of, you know, like every time a prostitute I would head back from a trip — I had to sleep with her. So I just said, ‘I’m going to live a different life.’”
For those who didn’t understand the last part of what Tyson said, he further explained: “I was a prostitute hunter!”
Needless to say things were a wee bit awkward after his statement.
But what might be bad for one’s personal privacy may be excellent for selling tickets to ones one-mand show… ‘Cause if Tyson’s show delves into the info he whipped out for Ann Curry, Undisputed Truth looks to be a hot ticket… And you won’t need a shot Penicillin to get it.
