Madonna Recruits Mike Tyson for Malawi

Talk about an unlikely pairing. Madonna ran into Mike Tyson at the Cannes Film Festival, where both are screening their new documentaries, and convinced him to join her in Malawi.

A source told The Mirror: "Madonna thinks Mike is amazing and asked if she could have a private screening of his documentary, Tyson, while she was in the Riviera.

"Mike agreed immediately. And, aware that having a celebrity fan will do wonders for his doc, he offered to do a favor in return."

Tyson agreed to join Madonna in Malawi later in the summer to promote awareness for children with AIDS. The source added: "Mike is eager to show he's turned over a new leaf and thinks this is the perfect way to do it."

If he actually keeps his words, Kudos to Mike. Madonna should still sleep with one eye open though. He's one scary MoFo!
