Mike Tyson has revealed what could really make him kill himself.

In his past life, Tyson wasn’t really known for being a gentleman. In fact, his former trainer Teddy Atlas claimed that he once put a gun on a young Tyson’s head for harassing his niece. While Atlas’ claim isn’t one hundred percent confirmed, one thing is for sure, Tyson had multiple relationships until he learned how to view women differently.

“Iron Mike” first tied the knot with Robin Givens in 1988. The marriage eventually collapsed before the actress filed for divorce just a year later over allegations of abuse. Reports also claimed that Givens had an affair with Hollywood actor Brad Pitt while still married to Tyson.

In 1997, Tyson married Monica Turner, but after six years, the couple finally end up getting divorced as well.

Tyson finally found the love of his life in Lakiha "Kiki" Spicer, the woman whom he remains together with to this day.

Needless to say, Tyson seemed to have troubles finding someone to share his life with. But now that he has got himself one, the “Baddest Man on the Planet” isn’t letting anything ruin their relationship. In fact, in a recent appearance on T.I.’s “ExpediTiously” podcast, Tyson admitted that he now relies on female company and even stated that he can’t live without one, Daily Star reported.

“I look at women differently as I get older,” Tyson said.

The 53-year-old legend continued by saying he know sees women differently. When he younger, Tyson view women as “pleasure” but now, he looked up to them as his “teachers.”

According to Tyson, he needs a woman to make remind him that he’s a man. He even noted that “a man who doesn’t have a little bit fear of his wife isn’t living his life right.”

Surprisingly, the once fearsome boxer now has no shame about being influenced by a woman. In his own words, Tyson came clean and said that he’ll kill himself if he didn’t have a wife because he really can’t live his life on his own.

“If I don’t have a wife, I’ll kill myself. That’s real talk. I need somebody to listen to, I’m just that person. “I’m a soldier, I can’t think on my own. I need somebody to listen to,” Tyson admitted.

When Tyson turned 50, his point of view in life has been completely different. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, the boxing icon looked back at his old self and stated that the young Tyson could never have a family like the one he has right now.

“[Young Tyson] could never have a family like this. That guy would destroy this family. That makes me hate that guy, what he would do to this family. That guy couldn’t handle a family,” Tyson said.
