Mike Tyson made an appearance on “The View” this week. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, he told the ladies he’s flat broke. Tyson who declared bankruptcy in 2003, blew threw $300 million during his career. Wow, that’s a lot of cash!
He says, “I’m totally destitute and broke. But I have an awesome life, I have an awesome wife who cares about me. I’m totally broke. I had a lot of fun. It (going broke) just happened. I’m very grateful. I don’t deserve to have the wife that I have; I don’t deserve the kids that I have, but I do, and I’m very grateful.”
One woman, who was not too happy with the interview was his former wife Robin Givens. She was reportedly ‘distraught’ and ‘livid’ when she learned that Tyson had talked about their tumultuous marriage on the talk show. She even reached out to ABC TV bosses begging them not to air the parts of the interview that discuss their former marriage. Really, who does she think she is?
Sources say, ‘When Robin got word that Mike would be on the show, she reacted immediately,’ the source told the New York Daily News. ‘She’d rather not have Mike rehash their rather tumultuous relationship. That was a bad time for her, and she’s moved on.’
Mike Tyson, who is a reportedly a sober soldier now earns a living by making cameo appearances in film and appearing at celebrity events. Well at least he’s a millionaire in love and rich in spirit.
