Heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson had an interview with Graham Bensinger for “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” on Yahoo! Sports on Saturday (December 2, 2012). The fighter opened up about his “love triangle” with ex-wife Robin Givens and Brad Pitt during the chat. Mike Tyson previously revealed the alleged tryst to Conan O’Brien earlier this year and this time he discussed new details about it in Graham Bensinger’s column. He said he caught his wife Robin Givens in bed with Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt in her house while the couple were in the middle of their divorce in 1989. At that time, Brad Pitt was not yet a star. Instead, he was doing guest appearances on shows such as “21 Jump Street” and sitcom “Head of the Class” where he met Robin Givens. “One day, I’m going to her house to bone her again and no one’s home, and I’m leaving and she’s pulling up with Brad Pitt, and I’m sad,” Mike Tyson said. “He wasn’t Brad Pitt back then. He was just some little beach-bum-looking dude. ‘Hey dude’ kind of guy. He was probably selling his body for money or something, I don’t know. He was very pretty.”
Mike Tyson and Robin Givens attended the 40th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, Pasadena. They got married in 1988 but the actress filed for divorce three months later.
Mike Tyson said that he was still physically involved with his wife during the time they were separating.
Mike Tyson claimed his wife Robin Givens really only wanted to be with him for his money while the model blamed their separation on alleged spousal abuse, violence and mental instability on Tyson’s part.
Brad Pitt and Robin Givens were caught in bed together in her house in 1989 when Givens and her husband Mike Tyson were tending to divorce proceedings.
