Following his split with Robin Givens, Tyson wasn’t too pleased to hear gossip regarding Michael Jordan seeing his ex. While the two attended the same restaurant out in Chicago, Tyson’s manager knew it wasn’t going to be a good situation, wisely, he told the bartender to go easy on his Long Island Ice Tea beverage, and basically water them down.
“I’m telling the server to water his drinks down ‘cause I see where this is going. Mike stares across the table at Michael Jordan. He says, ‘Hey man, you think I’m stupid?“Jordan looks like he just seen a ghost. ‘I know you messed with her. You can tell me.’ “Jordan, it’s obvious he just wants to get up and run. He wants no part of this. Mike turns to Ditka. ‘Man, you think somebody scared of you, all that racist s–t you been talking?’ He says to Dent, ‘Y’all scared of this damn white man, Richard? He ain’t nobody. You gonna let him talk that way? It was a circus, for real, that night. Don King trying to change the subject. Me and John trying to hold Mike down. Mike telling everyone he’s going to bust Jordan’s a–. Jordan’s dressed sharp as always and he can’t get out of there fast enough.”
It wasn’t the first time that Givens got someone else in trouble – while she was going through a divorce with Tyson, Mike caught the two together, and let’s just say Brad was scared for his life. Looking back, Tyson has publicly stated that he holds no ill-will, just that he was in a bad place at the time;
“I hope Brad don’t think I’m mad at him. I’m not mad at this guy, no way. I was getting a divorce. I was going to my lawyer’s office to divorce her that day but I wanted to sneak in a quickie. Apparently, Givens was also spending time with Pitt. This particular day, someone beat me to the punch. I guess Brad got there earlier than I did. I was mad as hell. You should’ve saw his face when he saw me.”
His anger issues seem to be a thing of the past, as he’s currently in phenomenal shape while he continues to build up his podcast.
