Mike Tyson may have been friends with the late Michael Jackson but he would never have left his kids alone with him.
The 52-year-old boxer - who has six kids from three relationships - was friends with the late 'Thriller' hitmaker but insisted he would never have left his offspring alone with the singer because of his "reputation" and blamed the parents of those who have accused the King of Pop of abuse for putting their children in that position.
Speaking to Michael Rapaport on his 'I AM RAPAPORT' podcast, he said: "The parents have to be responsible for that s**t. I just thought the fact that these kids, Michael is telling them, 'If anyone knows about this we're both gonna go to prison forever.' It was just ... really horrible.
"I have an eight-year-old kid. I wouldn't let Michael hang out with my kid. I wouldn't let my kid go over Michael's house. I love Michael. Ya know what I mean. Michael has a reputation of this."
In 1992, the 'Hangover' star was convicted of rape and he admitted he "respects" people who wouldn't let their children around him as a result.
