Mike Tyson, a celebrity whose career resume reads like no other - world boxing champion, convicted rapist, ear biter, Hangover star, Tony Awards singer - opened up to reporters at a press conference yesterday.
Big, disturbing time.
"I wanna change my life, I wanna live a different life now," he said. "I wanna live my sober life. I don't wanna die. I'm on the verge of dying, because I'm a vicious alcoholic."
Tyson - who has been in rehab on three different occasions - went on to say he's been living a lie and has been abusing substances for years.
The 47-year-old is now six days sober and hopes to remain that way, he says.
