MIKE TYSON has revealed how he used to sneak out at night to hide the fact he was meeting “nasty girls” from his wife and security guards.
The heavyweight legend lived in fear that his security team would tell his other half about other women he was seeing on the side.
Tyson, 54, endured battles with alcoholism, drugs, depression and sex addiction during his illustrious career.
His former manager Rory Holloway even wrote in his book how he had to employ 24-hour security guards to prevent him from sneaking out to meet women before a fight.
And Iron Mike has spoken of his own experiences, admitting he used to take off in the middle of the night.
Speaking on his Hotboxin Podcast, he said: “I didn’t want no one to know what I was doing.
“I might want to see one of my really nasty girls and I don’t want nobody to know who I’m with.
“You don’t want people to know what you’re doing.
“Sometimes I would just sneak out of my house and take-off in the middle of the night.
“You never know if your security are going to be cool, film you, have something on you in the past, they shouldn’t know, if you’re married at the time – doing dirt.”
Tyson has been married three times and has a history of physical abuse and adultery.

After his first marriage with Robin Givens, she described it as “torture, pure hell, worse than anything I could possibly imagine.”
His second five-year marriage with Monica Turner ended after accusing him of cheating in an “act that has neither been forgiven nor condoned.”
In March, Tyson went more into depth about his past that included partying and paying for orgies.
Speaking on his YouTube show, the American confessed: “When I was young I was an animal with money.
“Giving people money like f*** everybody, party with everybody and f*** their mothers, their sisters and their cousins… orgies. I was crazy.
“I was so sick and I had no idea I was so sick.
“I bought a lot of cars for girls too.”
Tyson won 50 of his 58 professional fights in a long career that contained comebacks from a rape conviction and later bankruptcy.
In 1991, he was arrested over the rape of beauty pageant model Desiree Washington, who was 18 at the time, and eventually sentenced to six years in prison – of which he served less than three.
Writing in his 2013 autobiography, he accepted: “I was out of control drinking, gorging on food, f***ing women.”
Now Tyson is plotting a comeback into the ring having trimmed into terrific shape during lockdown following a series of brutal training workouts.
