Mike Tyson Revealed Why He Stopped Sleeping With His Tigers, And It Totally Checks Out

Published

on

Mike Tyson is considered one of the most dominant professional boxers of all time, but that’s not the only thing he’s known for in the mainstream. Tyson has also been the proud owner of tigers, and while he was close to his animals, he introduced boundaries with his pets over time. For example, the fighter recently explained why tigers used to sleep in his bed, but he had to put an end to it for the most understandable reason possible.

 

 

The fighter spoke to rapper and television personality Action Bronson for his podcast Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, and during their discussion, he talked about his past raising three Bengal tigers. Mike Tyson spoke about the relationship he had with his tigers and how they even used to sleep in his bed, but it had to come to an end. He explained:

“They start farting at night, and it fucks everything–aw man, you can’t imagine that shit, man. You have to crack the windows, oh shit. Fuck that. It’s indoors too. I say, ‘Why you let these mother fuckers in here, Mike?’ You can’t get rid of it because it’s like fart and piss and fucking stains in the wall, on the floor, on the rug, mother fucker. So I got them their own house, and I put them in the house. I bought the house next door, and I made that their house.”

It’s a truly bizarre story from start to finish, but that’s par for the course anytime Mike Tyson has talked about his pet tigers. As mentioned, Tyson previously owned three Bengal tigers: Boris, Storm, and Kenya. Tyson has reportedly sent the tigers to live at a sanctuary and no longer owns any. He revealed as much in an interview with GQ Sports, as well as that he once paid someone $250,000 when his tiger “ripped somebody’s arm off.’

Mike Tyson doesn’t have a tiger anymore, but he does have an adorable Doodle named Mars. Tyson even has an Instagram account for his dog, and from what I can tell searching the page, no issues with Mars’ farts and pee stains ruining his bed.

The fact that Iron Mike Tyson has an Instagram page solely for his pet is about as great as the fact he slept with live tigers and can talk about it so casually as if that’s a thing people do on a regular basis. Of course, Tyson didn’t necessarily gain his reputation being the type of guy who wouldn’t sleep in the same bed as a tiger, and I doubt anyone would tell him to his face even now at age 55 that what he did wasn’t a good idea. Let’s just smile and be thankful farts were the worst thing Tyson ever worried about while sleeping with a carnivore.

Mike Tyson is one of Hollywood’s more eccentric types, but he’s not the only celebrity who has had something offbeat going on in his home. For more on that front, be sure to check in on Meghan Trainor and the baffling double toilet she has in her bathroom.

Revealed: The Insane Amount of Earnings That Have Propelled Lewis Hamilton’s Net Worth to $300 Million Mark

Published

on

The thing about athletes like Lewis Hamilton that differentiates them from the rest is that they set such a high standard of results that anything below a win is termed as a disappointment. But in Hamilton’s case this year, everybody seemed to agree that he had one of the best seasons of his career.

And despite not being able to add his eighth and record-breaking championship to his mountain of achievements, the Mercedes driver added a lot of digits to his earnings.

In 2021, Lewis Hamilton earned a massive $70 million from Formula 1 in terms of salary and bonuses. And an additional $12 million from sponsorships.

This meant that the total earnings of $82 million made sure that for the first time in his career, Lewis Hamilton’s estimated net worth crossed over the mark of a quarter of a billion dollars.

Now with a net worth of $300 million, Hamilton is the eighth highest-paid athlete in the world.

But in 2022, Lewis Hamilton might earn less compared to 2021.

How much will Lewis Hamilton earn in salary in 2022?
In 2021, Lewis Hamilton agreed to a two-year contract extension. This saw him earn a salary of $55 million (excluding bonuses) as reported by Forbes. But in his final year of the contract, the one he is currently on, it is reported that Hamilton’s salary will take a dip.

According to a report, the Mercedes driver will earn $40 million in salary in 2022.

It’s also worth pointing out that the 2021 champion Max Verstappen retains his $25 million paycheck.

The reason for the pay cut in salary of the seven-time world champion could be the fact that he is edging towards the end of his career. But also because of the cost cap that F1 introduced in 2021.

Yet it’s not as if Lewis Hamilton doesn’t have an income flow from outside the sport.

He is undeniably one of the biggest names in the global sports landscape, and his magnanimous achievements have already made sure that he’ll remain an incredibly marketable name for years to come.

Serena Williams’ Daughter Olympia Shows Off Impressive Tennis Backhand Swing: ‘Practice Makes Better’

Published

Serena Williams’ daughter, Olympia Ohanian, showcased her talents on the tennis court in a video posted to her Instagram on Monday

 

 

Olympia Ohanian is following in mom Serena Williams’ famous footsteps.

The 4-year-old tiny tot showed off her seriously impressive tennis skills in a new video posted to her Instagram account on Monday, showcasing a swing that rivals tennis players of all age groups.

“Practice makes better,” reads a simple caption accompanying the video, in which Olympia can be seen sporting a black-and-white workout getup while she effortlessly practices her backhand on the court.

“It’s Oracene [Price] all over again!” Williams’ sister, Venus, commented, referring to their mom, who also served as their tennis coach when they were younger.

Olympia’s tennis skills shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering Serena, 40, is one of the most decorated tennis players in the history of the sport, and the mommy-daughter duo spend a considerable amount of time practicing together.

“Honestly, we started because it’s a socially safe sport, and when COVID happened, it was like, we’re just in the house with a 3-year-old, what do we do?” the 23-time Grand Slam winner told PEOPLE of how Olympia got involved with the sport, adding, “There was only one answer, to my dismay.”

Serena shares Olympia with husband and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, whom she wed in a star-studded event at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans in November 2017.

And although Olympia clearly takes her tennis training seriously on and off the court — Serena recently showed fans her daughter’s personal gym equipment in a series of Instagram Stories earlier in January — Olympia also has an ear for music, as evidenced by her incredible piano playing.

“She likes tennis, but I don’t know. Honestly, she likes playing piano,” the fashion designer told Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last November. “When she was in my belly, I played a lot of piano music.”

“And she’s teaching me! Like, I’m not even kidding,” the tennis pro replied when Kimmel asked if Olympia was taking piano lessons. “I have a baby Mozart, [but] of course every parent thinks they have like, a baby Beethoven or whatever.”
