Presented Without Comment: Mike Tyson’s Ex Cooked and Ate His Pigeon

If there’s one thing Mike Tyson loves, it’s pigeons. He loves them so much, he apparently owned 2,500 of them at one point and even made a documentary about his pets. That’s why this story is particularly troubling: apparently, his ex-girlfriend cooked and ate one of them. Uhhh, okay.

From WFAN’s Boomer and Carton show:

“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 she cooked one and proceeded to eat it. And I just couldn’t do it.”

Added Tyson, who also happens to be a vegan: “It just wasn’t the right thing to do. It wasn’t cool. It was her house and we were living on her dime, so she could do [it].”

LOL, I love that Mike Tyson is a vegan. Also, that this ex-girlfriend thought domesticated pigeons were worth eating. I can’t imagine what possessed her to do that. Hunger, I suppose?

Also, when did Mike Tyson ever have to live on an ex-girlfriend’s dime? Hasn’t he been rich, like, forever? Even when he grabbed an earful from Evander Holyfield, he must’ve had some cash in the bank to sustain him, surely? Oh, whatever. Happy Friday.

  • Isn’t he a wife beater and a convicted rapist? Well, she is the same kind of cold psychopath that he is from what I see in this story. She sounds like his soul mate.

  • I know him very well and he never told me this story so it had to take place when he lived in New York city when he was young and before he became rich ! I know he had a shit load of pigeons ever since he was young ! He wasn’t rich until he moved to up state New York . He may have gotten bad reputation for other things but he loved those birds !

  • Mike Tyson is broke. Like a lot of people with no fiscal knowledge or supervision, he was taken advantage of, and spent money idiotically. When his original manager died, Mike went off the deep end financially and never had anyone looking out for him that had any power to tell him “no”.
