Mike Tyson Impregnated Prison Official While in Jail

The heavyweight champ drops TMI on ESPN.

Published April 23, 2012

Mike Tyson's Las Vegas stage show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, may have told us more than we needed to know about the heavyweight champ, but apparently, we don't know the half of it.

When asked by ESPN's Rick Reilly what he left out of the one-man show, he dropped this little bomb:

“I didn’t talk about getting a prison official pregnant,” he revealed. “Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby.”

Tyson served three years of a 10-year sentence for the alleged rape of an 18-year-old woman, and was released in 2005. He's currently the father of eight children, including two from his current wife, Kiki.

The boxer also dished to Reilly about his history of drug use. “I just liked morphine,” he said, adding, “but I had to take a lot of it because it didn’t stay in your system for a long time. ... And I’d have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there. That’s just how I lived my life.”

They do say admitting you have a problem is the first step, so hopefully all this over-sharing means a healthier, happier life for the reformed Tyson.
