On the most recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Robin Givens opened up about some of the relationships from her past. The first thing the TV star touched on during the interview was the claims about her ex-husband Mike Tyson and ex-boyfriend Brad Pitt.
The dispute initially began with Tyson’s 2013 memoir Undisputed Truth. In the memoir he made a claim about Brad and Robin saying, “I was getting a divorce, but…every day, before I would go to my lawyer’s office to say, ‘She’s a pig and stealing,’ I would go to her house to have sex with her,” he said. “This particular day, someone beat me to the punch. And I guess Brad got there earlier than I did. I was mad as hell…You should have saw his face when he saw me.”
He continued saying that once he caught Pitt in the driveway of Robin’s crib that he begged Tyson, “Dude, don’t strike me, don’t strike me.” Another rumor was that he actually caught the two of them in bed together.
Robin cleared the air on her perception of the situation. She told Cohen that “I didn’t read his book. …Pulling up in the driveway? That part’s true. I thought he said he caught us in bed. I didn’t read the book, but I was told he said he caught us in bed — which never happened. Never ever ever happened.”
She also clarified that Brad Pitt would never and never has begged Tyson to not hit him, saying, “Does that sound like Brad? (LOL) Brad’s got swag; you know what I mean. No, never.”
The two of them divorced after she came clean that within the relationship, she was the victim of domestic violence. She spoke on it with Wendy Williams before saying, “I think sometimes as people, women—perhaps men experience the same thing—you have a hard time sticking up for yourself, but it’s easier to stick up for people you love,” she explained. “I remember being at our house in New Jersey in a closet off the kitchen, and we were all in the closet, four of us hiding [from Tyson]. And I remember my sister bawling saying, ‘How long are you gonna put us all through this?’
Her next topic of discussion was revealing that she was surprisingly in a relationship with Howard Stern. This caused a shock to the internet given that this would be an awkward couple not only due to appearances but also because Stern is known to have made some racist jokes in his career.
Cohen surprised Robin when he brought up that her ex, “talks constantly about how he has a small p–.”
She chose not to share his personal business and responded, “Oh my god! This is like a walk down memory lane!” she exclaimed. “I wish I was getting this much action now, Andy!” Howard Stern was a magnificent lover. Like, unbelievable … Unbelievable.”
When he tried to bring up Stern’s “size” again, Robin avoided it saying, “We’re sticking with this whole p– thing for a while! …It was all good.”

Why I Stopped Cheating
Many years ago, I was married to a beautiful woman from Alabama. She was older, mature, and played her role as my wife impeccably!
At the time, I was in my early 30’s working for the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) hanging out with friends and trying to figure out who I was and what to do with my life.
Unfortunately for my wife, she met me at a time when I was still immature. I didn’t appreciate her love and devotion, and I didn’t have anything to lose.
I didn’t own a home, I didn’t have a career, I didn’t have a reputation to protect, and most importantly, I didn’t have a vision for my life.
And that’s the point of this article. Most men don’t fear the repercussions of their actions because they have nothing to lose.
Yes, men can lose the woman they love and split their families, but men don’t think in those terms when they’re cheating, which should be obvious by the number of men who destroy their relationships every day with their infidelity.
In my opinion, until a man values his reputation and his integrity, he will never go through the process it takes to become a better man.
Don’t get me wrong, man do dumb shit regardless of what’s at stake, but the mature man will learn from his mistakes and realize that in order to build anything substantial it must be rooted in trust and honesty.
And here in lies the problem, most men aren’t involved in building anything or trying to leave a legacy. Yes, they have jobs, but most don’t have careers. Yes, some own businesses but they’re not growing them so having mediocre relationships and a mediocre reputation is no big deal. He’s comfortable.
But when you want to lead and establish something that you can pass down through generations you can’t afford to have people attacking you on social media, you can’t afford to have people showing up at your events shouting you down about some wrong you’ve done to them.
You can’t afford for some side chick to put you on blast for getting her pregnant or giving her a disease. Or for a man to accuse you of owing him money or screwing his wife.
My word is my bond, and my reputation is my most valuable asset. If you’re dealing with a man who isn’t passionate about doing what’s right and protecting his brand, then don’t be surprised that he constantly cheats on you because he has nothing to lose…that he truly values.
I appreciate your honest post it will allow other men to understand their major mistakes in their relationships!
Only a man who understand his purpose in a relationship will demonstrate great character, maturity and value for what he has in himself and most definitely the other person. this post.
