The truth about Brad Pitt and Mike Tyson’s ex, Robin Givens

Mike Tyson has the boxing world — and the sports world in general! — buzzing about a possible return to the ring. The former heavyweight champion of the world (and face tattoo connoisseur) shared some training videos on Instagram in May 2020 that end with the legend stating, “I’m back,” according to CNN.

At age 53, a comeback seems unlikely and even almost dangerous. But it’s looking like it’s true. Dana White, UFC president and close personal friend of Tyson, told ESPN that the boxer has something “lined up,” but wouldn’t go into details.

“Originally, I came out and said, ‘Listen, I’d like Mike not to fight,'” White told ESPN in late May. “But Mike Tyson is a grown man, he can do whatever. The guy is powerful, looks explosive and has gotten himself in great shape.” As White explained, it’s what Tyson really wants to do. He continued, “We talked about it and he said, ‘Listen, I feel that fire in my stomach. I want to get in there and mix it up again.’ I’m fully supportive of him.”

All this buzz about Tyson got a few people wondering about his golden days — when he was winning fights and dating Hollywood celebrities. Remember Robin Givens? She was a huge name in the 1980s, who married the fighter in 1988 (per MSN). They divorced one year later. 

But what everyone really remembers from their union is the infamous story of Tyson catching Givens with the one, the only… Brad Pitt!

What really happened with Brad Pitt and Mike Tyson's ex-wife Robin Givens?

For years, rumors swirled around Hollywood that when Mike Tyson was married to Robin Givens, he walked in on her in bed with Brad Pitt. Some versions of the story even included Tyson punching Pitt! Tyson addressed the incident in his 2013 memoir, Undisputed Truth.

However, it appears some of his truths are disputed. (See what we did there?) When Givens appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in 2019, she set the record straight about the night in question (via MSN).

“[Pitt and I were] pulling up in the driveway, that part is true,” Givens said on the show. “I didn’t read the book, but I was told he says he caught us in bed, which never happened. Never, ever, ever happened.” When asked why she was even in a car with Pitt, Givens replied, “We were coming from, like, a screening or something.”

Tyson claims in the book that Pitt started pleading with him when they pulled into the driveway. The former professional boxer alleged that Pitt said, “Don’t hit me, don’t hit me,” when Tyson approached them, but Givens denied this.

“No,” Givens replied with a big grin. “Does that sound like Brad? I mean, Brad’s got some swag, you know what I mean?” According to People, Pitt’s rep did not return their request for comment at the time, so where he stands on the whole situation remains a mystery.
