Mike Tyson Says In Autobiography That He Turned To Voodoo Save Him But It Didnt Work

Tyson and Givens

In Mike Tyson’s just published explosive autobiography, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, the former boxing champion has revealed that he spent the weeks leading up to that sentencing, traveling round the country ‘romancing’ his various girlfriends.

Also when he realized the legal measures had let him down he had turned to ‘divine intervention,’ to bring him a light sentence.

According to him, he visited a, ‘hoodoo woman’ who said she would cast a spell to keep him out of jail if he put five hundred dollar bills in a jar, urinated in it and kept it under his bed for three days.

He sought out a voodoo priest who turned out to be a fraud, ‘I knew that guy had nothing,’ he recalls.

And he followed the instructions of a Santeria priest – going to the courthouse one night with a pigeon and an egg which he dropped on the ground as the bird was release and he yelled. ‘We’re free!’

He almost believed it would work. Because he felt invincible. ‘In my mind,’ he says, ‘I had no peers. I was the youngest heavyweight champion in the history of boxing. I was a titan, the reincarnation of Alexander the Great.’

Former heavy weight boxing champion-Mike Tyson is at it again, talking about his estranged wife-Robin Givens who had an affair with Brad Pitt…

This time, Tyson claims Brad Pitt pleaded with him not to be beaten up  during a volatile encounter over two decades ago—a matchup that would have been so bad, none of the sportsbook sites would have touched it.

According Tyson, he bumped into the then-unknown actor on a date with Givens where, a ‘stoned’ Pitt got very nervous and begged him not to ‘strike’ him.

RadarOnline reports that the 47-year-old former boxer recounts the moment in his new book Undisputed Truth when he came face-to-face with the Fight Club star.

In the anecdote, Tyson dropped by his then estranged wife Robin’s house when he found the burgeoning actor at her home. Of the encounter, the boxer-turned-performer writes: ‘You had to see the look on his [Pitt’s] face.
‘He looked like he was ready to receive his last rites.’

Adding: ‘He also looked stoned out of his gourd.’ Tyson then claims that Pitt begged: ‘Dude, don’t strike me.’

Surely, this is not the first and will not be the last time Tyson is painting Brad Pitt as a coward. Previously Tyson joked on Conan O’Brien that Pitt ‘went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle’ when he ran into the future star on another date with Givens during the same period.
