Mike Tyson has decided to weigh in on the whole Chris Brown/Rihanna situation. In a recent interview with MTV News, the former boxing champion offered his views:
“It’s none of my business, but you know what I say about that? I understand the situation. I understand passion with young kids,”
“My personal opinion about that is, he’s just a baby,” adds the former heavyweight champ, who is the subject of a new documentary, Tyson, out Friday. “He’s just a little baby that don’t know how to handle his emotions when it comes to a woman. And he probably hears this and thinks, ‘I know how to handle my emotions’; we all think we do. But the fact [is],” Tyson continues, “you look at this person and you might be crazy in love, but we don’t know how to handle those feelings.”
Mike Tyson should be the last person to give advice on handling emotions. Let’s take a history lesson:
February 7, 1988 to February 14, 1989 – The Robin Givens Years defined by allegations of violence, spousal abuse and mental instability.
February 10, 1992 – Tyson convicted of raping Desiree Washington.
June 28, 1997 – Tyson bites off a piece of Evander Holyfields right ear.
August 31, 1998 – Tyson assaults two motorists after a traffic accident.
