Mike Tyson opened up during his visit to SiriusXM’s Opie Radio show about a traumatic event from his childhood.
Tyson revealed he was sexually abused by a stranger when he was just a seven-year-old kid in Brooklyn.
‘He snatched me off the street. I was a little kid…[he was an] old man.’
‘[He] bullied me, sexually abused me and stuff,’ said Tyson. ‘Never seen him again.’
Mike says he managed to escape and that it never happened again. He never told anyone about the abuse.
‘I just went on with my life,’ he said.
While some people carry the shame of sexual abuse throughout their live, Mike Tyson says he ‘don’t know’ if it changed him or not.
He added, ‘I don’t always remember, but maybe I do but I don’t. I’m not ashamed or embarrassed by it.’
