Mike Tyson Hired Hit Man to Kill Brad Pitt
Can you believe this ish.
According to a close friend of Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion of the world (now just a heavyweight), threatened to kill Brad Pitt "several times" for dating Robin Givens, whom he considered to be the love of his life. (After divorcing Mike - she alleged he raped and beat her ass - Robin dated Brad for about six months. He was there to help heal her emotional wounds and Mike was jealous.)
“There was huge competition between the champ and Brad Pitt to get Robin to walk down the aisle,” Richard Singer, a former friend of Tyson told Ian Halperin. “The champ wanted to kill Pitt because he refused to back off Robin. He called him and told him he’d have him knocked off if he didn’t back off. He did this several times.”
Furthermore, Tyson hired a professional hit man to kill Pitt.
“He paid him 20 grand upfront,” he said. “But he changed his mind and decided he’d to the job himself. Believe me, as we all know Mike was more than capable of killing Pitt with one punch.”
He later changed his mind and purchased a gun (and took target practice) to take care of the job himself. But alas, he realized the risks were too great and backed out. After dating for those six months, Robin admitted that she never saw or spoke with Brad again.
