The Time Mike Tyson Caught Brad Pitt Doing the Mattress Mambo with Robin Givens
Former pro boxer Mike Tyson has a bone to pick with Brad Pitt. Turns out, the heavyweight champion-turned-Hangover star is still sour about the time he caught his then-wife, actress Robin Givens, in bed with a pre-fame Brad Pitt.
In 1989, Iron Mike was in the midst of a very public, messy divorce battle with the former Head of the Class star. The split eventually cost the athlete a $10 million settlement and a reputation as an accused wife beater — but that didn’t stop Tyson for swinging by Robin’s crib for the occasional Sideways Samba.
Unfortunately for him, Robin wasted no time moving on to Brad, who was still a couple of years away from his breakout role as a male hustler in 1991’s Thelma and Louise.
Mike told In Depth with Graham Bensinger:
“I was doing a divorce, but I, we every day, before I would go to my lawyer’s office to say she’s a pig and stealing, I would go to…her house to have sex with her. This particular day, someone beat me to the punch. And I guess Brad got there earlier than I did.”
“I was mad as hell. I was going to … you should have saw his face when he saw me!”
