Mike Tyson has had a rocky past — all of which he claims to have made amends and moved on from. He's bitten off ears, been in a heap of legal trouble. To him, though, there is one moment SO DARK that even he hasn't quite been able to get past it.
That moment was when an ex-girlfriend of his cooked and ate one of his pet pigeons! WTF!
Here's what he said about it when asked if he's ever eaten one of his wide range of pets, which is an awful question and we're not sure why he was asked it in the first place:
“I tried. I was dating this young lady and she said, ‘I don’t know why you’re flying those damn birds, you should be eating them.’ . . . She happened to grab one and — and she cooked one and proceeded to eat it. And I just couldn’t do it. It just wasn’t the right thing to do. That’s why she’s not my woman anymore.”
That's because it's messed up to eat your pets! Girl sounds NUTS! LOLz!
Seriously though, if Mike had been a child, that moment could have messed him up forever — it still probably had an impact as an adult!!
Also, we were joking that it was Tyson's darkest moment. Obviously it was his rape conviction, which is still extremely awful regardless of the success he's managed to find afterwards. Having a pet pigeon eaten in front of you pales in comparison to what that young woman has to live with for the rest of her life.
