Mike Tyson reveals girlfriend ate one of his pigeons
Mike Tyson is revealing that he was traumatized after an unnamed ex-girlfriend cooked and ate one of his birds in front of him.
Pigeon-racing was Tyson’s “first love” and at one point the former champion boxer owned up to 350 birds.
When asked if he had ever eaten one of his animals, he said, “I tried. 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.’
Tyson also added that he grew up around the pigeons and saw them as an escape, “I was fat and ugly. Kids teased me all the time. The only joy I had was pigeons.”
