“She swooped down on me, and told me, ‘This is what we’re gonna do,’ and that’s what happened. That’s why I believe in what I believe in now. ‘Cause there’s no way this could be happening. There’s no way I could’ve been married to my wife. I’m not faithful enough. I’m just not that kind of guy. I don’t care about nothing enough more than my d*ck, so how am I gonna be faithful to somebody? But it worked! I got ten years with her.
“I got two years without ever f*cking a b*tch but my wife. For a n*gga like me, I had to have them every day. I had to c*m every second of the day! I’m the poster boy for Sexual Anonymous.”
Tyson went on to elaborate on how his view about women in general has changed. ”I look at them as the half. It makes me realize that I’m a man. And at this stage in my life, they’re my teachers. If a man doesn’t have a little bit of fear of his wife, he’s not living his life right. That’s why I got married three times, ’cause I can’t live without a wife. If I don’t have a wife, I’ll kill myself. That’s real talk. I need somebody to listen to. I’m a soldier. I can’t think on my own. I need somebody to do it.”
The former fighter also talked about how his poor example of being a black man has led his children to dislike black people.
“You know what bothers me, too, man? And I gotta say this. Why my kids don’t like black kids? They don’t date black kids. Why is that?… Sometimes I look at my daughter, and I see that she’s attracted to white guys, and I think, ‘I didn’t set a good example as a black man’… They must have seen sometimes when I was vulnerable and said, ‘Hey, I don’t wanna be with no one like that. He’s scary.’”
