Robin Givens is in the hot seat on “What What Happens Live”, dishing about the famous men in her past, including an infamous encounter between Brad Pitt and Mike Tyson.
Between 1986 and 1987, Givens dated the then-up-and-coming actor Pitt after he guest-starred on her sitcom “Head Of The Class”. The brief relationship came amid the actress’ divorce from boxer Mike Tyson.
In Tyson’s 2013 memoir Undisputed Truth, the boxer claims he pulled into Givens’ driveway and caught his soon-to-be ex-wife with Pitt. In his account, he claims Pitt pleaded, “Dude, don’t strike me, don’t strike me.” The moment has become the stuff of legend, and as the truth gets twisted, some accounts claim Tyson caught the pair in bed.
“I didn’t read his book,” Givens says of Tyson’s version of events. “Pulling up in the driveway? That part’s true. I thought he said he caught us in bed. I didn’t read the book, but I was told he said he caught us in bed, which never happened. Never, ever, ever happened.”
But one thing she does refute from the story is Pitt’s pleas.
“Does that sound like Brad? Brad’s got swag, you know what I mean. No, never,” she tells host Andy Cohen.
Givens also spilled the tea on another famous ex, Howard Stern.
“Howard Stern was a magnificent lover. Unbelievable,” she adds.
