Former boxing champion Mike Tyson has opened up about the awkward moment when he came home to find Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt with his former wife, Robin Givens.

Speaking to US TV personality Graham Bensinger on his sports interview show, Tyson told how he turned up at Givens’ home and caught her with Pitt.

Thankfully, the incident was in the late 1980s at a time when the former couple were in the midst of sorting out their divorce and Pitt was still relatively unknown.

“I would go to my lawyer’s office to say she’s a pig and stealing, I would go to ... her house to have sex with her. This particular day, someone beat me to the punch. And I guess Brad got there earlier than I did,” he said.

“I was mad as hell. You should have (seen) his face when he saw me.”

Tyson, left, also revealed how he was a “mess” and “high on cocaine” during his movie cameo in The Hangover and how his co-stars Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis helped him through.

“I was overweight. I was a pig, high on cocaine,” he said. “They had to know I was messed up. I couldn’t talk. I had the cocaine talk.

“So those guys are just beautiful people. They had my back and I appreciate that and stuff, then they asked me to come back (for the sequel).”
