Jackass star Steve-O has revealed how he once went on a three-hour cocaine session with Mike Tyson in a bathroom during a house party.
The former Wildboy described how he and some friends crashed an exclusive Hollywood Hills party, only for Iron Mike to answer the door. This sounds like the start to an amazing movie, but it gets a little deeper than that.
GQ magazine reports that the TV star was then reportedly asked if he “had any coke”, to which he replied, “Yeah, dude, I got a bunch.”
The 41-year-old, real name Stephen Glover, went on to describe how he and Tyson locked themselves in a bathroom where they spent a whopping three hours doing coke and having “deep conversations about race in America.”
However, that wasn’t the last time the pair saw each other, as some time later they found each other on the same psychiatric ward. Steve-O refused to reveal why they had landed there, but his problems with drugs and alcohol are pretty well documented.
Thankfully, he is currently eight years sober after getting the help he so badly needed – and now he’s happy to share his extremely wild experiences…
“At that time in my life I would develop Tourette’s syndrome if I was fucked up enough, just blurting out inappropriate shit,” he told GQ.
“So I said to him [Tyson], my exact words, ‘You know, Mike, I don’t have a racist bone in my body, but I like to consider myself a n–r.’ [laughs] I’ll never forget, he said, ‘You ask me, the definition of that word is anybody who uses it.’ And I was like, ‘Damn! Iron Mike, deep as fuck!'”
Before getting clean, though, there were plenty of darker days for Steve-O. He continued: “I was scraping up blood and cocaine and I fucking snorted it. I was snorting up dried blood. That’s probably the lowest point I can recall. And I can’t imagine trying much harder to contract AIDS. And thankfully, I didn’t.”
