Mike Tyson is a man with many stories – most of which you’d immediately rubbish as bulls*** if they came from anyone else. But with Iron Mike, you just never know.
The 54-year-old shared one such story in December when he claimed that he effectively got his jail sentence reduced by having sex with a prison counselor.
The former heavyweight champion boxer was convicted of rape in 1992 and sentenced to six years behind bars. He was ultimately released on parole after three years, but he said he would have been in there longer if it wasn’t for the ‘nasty stuff’ he got up to with the counselor. In an interview on Vlad TV, Tyson said he was bitter about his sentence initially and regularly got in trouble, resulting in a year being added on.
But this year was to be removed if he passed the GED (General Education Department) test – which he did, thanks to his relationship with the counselor. Tyson claimed: “Next thing you know, I’m dating one of the council workers now, she’s letting me have sex with her now… So bypassing the GED they took that year away. “So I flunked the f***ing GED and got mad, and so I had to start dating this counselor and stuff, giving her money and doing really some nasty stuff to her, and she let me pass this test.”
Watch him recount the tale here:
As I say, it seems pretty outlandish – but not by his standards.
This is a man who said he used a fake penis to pass a drug test, after acquiring clean wee from a family member. Tyson has been open about his cocaine and cannabis use, and to ensure he would pass a drugs test, he concocted a bizarre plan using a ‘whizzinator‘ – a type of strap-on fake penis attached to a bag that can be filled with liquid and then squeezed out using the thighs.
Tyson said he was initially going to use his wife’s urine, but decided to get some from his young daughter instead. Speaking on his Hotboxin podcast in November, Tyson said: “It was awesome, man.“I put my baby’s urine in it. And sometimes, one time I was using my wife’s and my wife was like, ‘Baby, you better not hope that it comes back pregnant or something.’
“And I said, ‘Nah, we ain’t going to use you anymore, we’re going to use the kid.’ Because I got scared that the p*** might come back pregnant. “That was what I was afraid of! I guess I heard of this happening because I was afraid of that.” Whatever you say, Mike.
