Mike Tyson is Broke But Grateful

Mike Tyson used to be on top of the world, but after years of excessive spending, drugs and alcohol, he's completely broke and destitute.

Mike filed for bankruptcy back in 2003 and admitted to the ladies of The View that he's still struggling to get back on his feet.

He said, "I'm totally destitute and broke. But I have an awesome life, I have an awesome wife who cares about me."

When asked if he has enough money in the bank to hold him over until his next job, he replied, "No, I'm totally broke. I had a lot of fun. It (going broke) just happened. I'm very grateful. I don't deserve to have the wife that I have; I don't deserve the kids that I have, but I do, and I'm very grateful."

This is Mike's third marriage and he has five children from various relationships, but it seems like he's finally in a good place in his life. He's clean and sober and has a family that loves him.

It's just so sad that one minute you can be on top of the world, and the next minute you're struggling to provide for your family.
