About That Time Brad Pitt Nailed Mike Tyson’s Wife and Was Somehow Not Murdered for It

“I was getting a divorce. I was going to my lawyer’s office to divorce her that day but I wanted to sneak in a quickie … This particular day, someone beat me to the punch … I guess Brad got there earlier than I did. I was mad as hell. You should’ve saw his face when he saw me.” That’s Mike Tyson telling Yahoo the story of the time he stumbled upon Brad Pitt making extramarital love to then-wife Robin Givens, the air thick with the delicious scents of forbidden lust, Chanel No.5, and impending homicide.

And yes, we all wish we could have seen Pitt’s face in that moment, because most human beings never get a good look at a man who’s confronting the very real possibility that his entrails are about to be scooped out by a fist the size of a backhoe shovel and dumped out a window.

“I hope Brad don’t think I’m mad at him. I’m not mad at this guy, no way,” Tyson reassures his interviewer. And somewhere Brad Pitt quietly soils himself, because there’s a better-than-average chance a murderous beef is still being nurtured deep within the champ’s well-decorated skull. Be safe, Brad.
