Mike Tyson has revealed that he hated Michael Jackson’s guts after being nudged backstage at one of the pop legend’s concerts.
In his heyday in the late 80s and early 90s, “the worst man on the planet” was one of the most famous and greatest names in the world.
One man who was equally popular and in the limelight was the late “King of Pop” Michael Jackson.

However, Tyson has admitted that he was very angry with the musician until the couple ended up hanging out.
Talking about tip “TI” Harris fast The former world champion said on the podcast: “I met Mike one day, I think he was at a concert in Cleveland. I’m with Don King.
“So me and Don come in, right? And I’m a champion and everything, I’ve done it all undisputedly.
“So Don goes and Don gives Michael Jackson the ‘peace’ sign. And then Michael gives Don the “peace” sign, and so I give Michael the “peace” sign, and Michael puts his hand down.
In a way, I’m like, ‘Did he play me? No, he didn’t play me, he just didn’t see me. I knew he didn’t play me because I’m a fucking champion. ”
Tyson and King continued to go backstage for the show – but the disrespect continued.
He continued, “So we went backstage, right? So I’m backstage and there’s his backstage, some of his singers and stuff.
“He’s on stage, it’s over, I’m signing autographs and all, so Michael comes over and he talks to Don, he doesn’t talk to me. … I say ‘just let me go ahead and meet Mike’ because that’s why I’m really here, I want to meet Mike.
“And then I go over to meet Mike … and he goes like, ‘Don’t I know you from somewhere? Where do I know you from? ‚
“He broke my ego, he knocked me down.
“I said, ‘No, I’m just a fan, it’s my pleasure to meet you sir. He said ‘OK’ and then got out and got in the car. ‚
Tyson admitted he had refused to let go of the nudge for years until Jackson finally invited him to hang out – an offer the fighter originally turned down.
“I said, ‘OK, I’m coming, I’m over there,’ right?
“So I got on a plane, went there, hung out, and we just started hanging out. And I said, ‘F ** k man, he’s a good guy.
“But in my mind I said, ‘Why did you play me anyway, Mike, why did you play me like that? You knew who I am, why did you play me? ‘”
