Maybe it's just us, but when Mike Tyson of all people is taking note of your violent tendencies and voicing concern, it may be time to rethink your life.

Such is the case for Chris Brown, who the former boxing champ believes is too violent and headed down a dangerous path where he will pay the price.

Tyson was a guest on the 95.5 PLJ Morning Show this morning when he was asked about Chris Brown, who was arrested for assault in D.C.

Iron Mike, who's battled anger issues in the past himself, weighed in on Chris. "I like and admire that little guy," Tyson said. "I'm just worried about him."

  1. Who admires Chris Brown?
  2. Great use of the word "little."
  3. Mike did prison time for rape.

Regarding that last point, Tyson says he knows from experience that if Chris doesn't learn to control his rage, fans will turn on him. As will the law.

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.

Watch the admission and the reaction of reporters above and comment below.

Neil Patrick Harris kicked off his hosting duties for the 2013 Tony Awards Sunday night with an elaborate opening number that featured Mike Tyson. Seriously.

The eight-minute-long act featured musical recaps of nominees such as Kinky Boots, Motown: The Musical, Pippin, Bring It On and Matilda the Musical.

The highlight wasn't the acclaimed plays, or even NPH however. It was boxer-turned-pop-culture-punchline Tyson, who made a cameo at the 3:15 mark:

He didn't do much, but he didn't have to. Tyson's mere presence on stage at the 2013 Tony Awards was enough to get people talking, as it clearly has.

The former world heavyweight champion recently embarked on a touring one-man show that also hit Broadway (seriously), so it did sort of make sense?

As for Harris, he also closed the show by rapping! Check out his take on "Empire State of Mind" featuring Audra McDonald after the jump ...

The NYPD is battling Twitter over the social media company's refusal to release the name of a user who threatened an attack "just like in Aurora."

The user claimed he would attack a Broadway theater where Mike Tyson's one-man show was playing on August 1, describing his plan in detail.

"This s**t ain't no joke yo I'm serious people are gonna die just like in aurora," the user tweeted, claiming he/she would use unlocked exit doors.

The NYPD plans to subpoena Twitter today for the user's identity.

The NYPD Intelligence Division used Twitter's system for emergencies to request the identity of the account holder, but was rebuffed, officials say.

"Twitter turned us down, so we dispatched police to cover the theater while we sought a subpoena to force Twitter to disclose the identity of the account holder," said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne in an emailed statement.

"We take the threat seriously, especially in light of the recent attacks in Wisconsin and Colorado," he said of the threat against the Longacre Theatre.

Alleged shooter Wade Michael Page killed six people Sunday at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis. Page, an Army veteran, was shot dead by police.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? Meet Mike Tyson: Prostitute Hunter.

During an interview on The Today Show yesterday, the eccentric former boxer appeared with Spike Lee to promote his upcoming one-man show on Broadway. (Really, that's gonna be a thing.)

And the conversation with Ann Curry turned especially odd after Tyson was asked about his vegan diet and replied:

"There was too many prison cells, too many jails, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired... I really got tired of, you know, like every time a prostitute – I would head back from a trip - I had to sleep with her. I was a prostitute hunter!"

Well... okay then! Watch the exchange now:

Wow. Who knew Mike Tyson had so much in common with Charlie Sheen? Okay. Probably a lot of people.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat are down one game to zero in the NBA Finals.

But while Kevin Durant may be blessed with a better shooting touch and a deeper cast of teammates than his talented opponent, there's one thing James possesses that Durant never will: a song written about him, and performed in his honor, by former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

The controversial athlete took to the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage and serenaded the Heat forward Tuesday night with such lyrics as:

LeBron James is great/He makes Cleveland irate/He was born in Ohio and that’s where Cleveland is/ Ooooooo you seeeee, the iroooooonyyyyyy.

Watch and prepare your eardrums for possible bleeding now.

Mike Tyson and wife Lakiha Spicer just got married! Again!

Well, kind of. They pulled a fast one on 150 guests in Vegas on Saturday. Inviting pals to a joint birthday bash, the spouses of two years surprised friends at the M Resort Spa Casino with an elaborate wedding vow renewal.

The former boxing champion and Lakiha Spicer first tied the knot in a quickie Vegas ceremony in 2009. Two years later, they wanted to do it up RIGHT.

After announcing the true nature of the party to guests, Spicer changed from her cocktail dress into a white wedding gown and veil, Page Six reports.

She and Tyson, parents of a six-month-old son named Morocco, then exchanged traditional vows in a Muslim wedding ceremony. And it was magical.

Congratulations (again) to the happy couple!

If you've seen The Hangover, you know Mike Tyson has a small, but pivotal and hilarious role. He's not in the sequel, but if you've seen The Hangover 2 previews, you know his infamous face tattoo is - when Ed Helms wakes up with it.

The guy who tattooed Tyson in real life years ago is unamused.

S. Victor Whitmill claims he created AND copyrighted the tat he affixed to Mike Tyson's face in 2003, and is suing Warner Bros. in federal court.

Whitmill says he's never allowed anyone to use the image and that the studio violated his copyright by using it on a hung over Helms in the film.

In addition to wanting the scenes cut from the film (don't bet on it) Whitmill is also demanding a cash settlement of an undisclosed amount.

No comment yet from Tyson, who remains certifiably nuts for having that design - however artistic - tattooed on his face. His face.
