Los Angeles - Mike Tyson claims he was sexually abused as a child.
The 48-year-old retired boxer was "snatched" off the street when he was seven by an "old man", who he never saw again after the shocking one-time incident.
Speaking on SiriusXM's Opie Radio show, he said: "He snatched me off the street. I was a little kid...he was an old man."
"He bullied me, sexually abused me and stuff. Never seen him again."
Mike - who has been married three times and has six children - managed to escape but never told anyone what had happened.
He said: "I just went on with my life."
The controversial sportsman - who spent three years in jail after being convicted of rape in 1992 - is unsure whether or not the attack changed him.
Asked if he had changed as a result of the abuse, he said: "I don't know if it did or not."
"I don't always remember, but maybe I do but I don't. I'm not ashamed or embarrassed by it."
The Hangover actor recently admitted he used to share a drug dealer with the late Robin Williams, who committed suicide in August.
He said: "I knew Robin. We'd meet each other. People that deal with this situation, we know each other. We all know each other. We meet each other. I've been at a meeting with him, yes."
"This is very interesting. When I met him he said, 'I was waiting for you.' And he started telling me about somebody I was purchasing something from ... You look up to Robin so in my mind I'm saying to myself, 'How does he know this low-life dealer that I know?' "
