Mike Tyson says he still feels guilty about Tupac Shakur’s death.
The tragic rap star was in Las Vegas to see Tyson fight Bruce Seldon the night he died in a drive-by shooting in 1996, and Iron Mike says he feels that he pressured Shakur to be there.
Tyson wanted to walk to the ring while a custom Shakur track played in the MGM Grand, and says he pestered him to bring the recording on a tape.
“It was a really bad day when that happened….it was really bad,” he told Zab Judah on Vlad TV.
“I felt a little guilty about him coming to the fight … me pressuring him (saying) ‘Hey you wanna bring the tape, don’t forget the tape.”
Tyson said that after the fight he planned to join Shakur at 662 nightclub, where the rapper was gunned down by a mystery shooter, and said he only changed his plans because he’d recently had a baby and decided to go home to his family.
Sad to see Mike still struggling with guilt all these years later.
