Mike Tyson has admitted to being sexually abused when he was only 7-years-old and our hearts just broke..
Mike was on “Opie Radio” when he opened up about the traumatic event that took place in his life 41 years ago, when he was abducted by an unknown man:
(The man) bullied me, sexually abused me and stuff… snatched me off the street. I was a little kid. Never seen him again (sic).
Although Mike didn’t say whether or not the incident scared him it’s only right to assume that it has due to his past substance abuse and rape conviction in 1992..
In a new interview with Howard Stern, Mike shared great news with the public regarding his long time struggle with substance abuse:
I’m clean now. But this is a constant fight. Eventually that dark entity’s going to knock on the door. The fact is we’re all human and it doesn’t care what race you are, how rich you are, it just wants you to be miserable.
It is so difficult to watch such a big guy admit to such a horrible life altering event but we’re so proud of Mike for doing this. Men should be able to open up and talk about their feelings without any judgement. We’re loving this new side of Mike. The softer side in a men is very endearing.
