"I didn`t talk about getting a prison official pregnant. Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby," Tyson said.The former heavyweight champion, who has eight children, says he used to take many drugs previously, both legal and prescription describing them as his little friends.

"I just liked morphine, but I had to take a lot of it because it didn`t stay in your system for a long time. And I`d have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there," he added.
