In his first interview about his daughter Exodus’ tragic death in May, Mike Tyson sat down with Entertainment Tonight to talk about how he’s getting along. In short, the man’s devastated, but he’s apparently taken up acting as a way to keep himself somewhat active.
If you don’t remember, Mike’s daughter Exodus was discovered by her brother with a treadmill cord wrapped around her neck. Awful.
In fact, after adding a cameo in The Hangover to his resume, Tyson is set to appear in Michael Strahan’s new show Brothers.
“I really was beating myself up over my daughter. I was staying in the house, depressed; it was a dark moment in my life. This keeps me functioning as a healthy human being…
I am working with dealing with it,” he says. “I have spoken to a lot of people. I have become a member of an exclusive club no one wants to join. I have been told the pain never stops but you get over it. I am going through a process, trying to heal. I am in denial, because I don’t know how to handle it. I don’t know what to do or say. I appreciate everybody who supported me.”
Mike Tyson’s had a rough life, high highs and low lows, but back in May was the first time I ever felt sorry for the guy.
