It’s no secret that Mike Tyson struggled with drug addiction for many years, and he isn’t shy about sharing horror stories from back in the day.

As previously reported, the former heavyweight champ recently sat down for a candid interview with In Depth With Graham Bensinger on Yahoo! Sports, where he shockingly revealed that he once found his ex-wife Robin Givens in bed with Brad Pitt!

The famed fighter also revealed that he was high on cocaine throughout filming of his comeback role in the smash hit movie, The Hangover -- but said that despite his far from professional antics on set he found unlikely support from his costars and the film's director.

“You know, I was a mess,” Tyson confessed. “I was overweight, 280 and 380 pounds. I was a pig, high on cocaine, and they had to know I was messed up. I couldn’t talk. I had the cocaine talk.”

However, he explained that the stars of the film and director Todd Phillips were super supportive, and by the time the second installment of the film franchise was ready to film, he was no longer suffering from cocaine hangovers.

“Those guys are just beautiful people. They’re just beautiful," Tyson said. "They had my back, and I appreciate that and stuff, then they asked me to come back.

“They just gave me that extra boost.”
