Tyson added that “money doesn’t mean s***” in a discussion with trauma and addiction therapist Sean McFarland.

He said: “I always tell people, they think money's gonna make them happy, they've never had money before, when you have a lot of money, you can't expect nobody to love you.

“You believe that you're invincible when you have a lot of money, which isn't true,” he said on his podcast, “Hotboxin with Mike Tyson”.

Before Tyson questioned: “What is security?

“I don't know. When you put money in your bank and you get a cheque every week and you can live for the rest of your life, is that security?

“It doesn't mean you won't catch a disease, or get hit by a car.

“Can money secure you when you jump off a bridge?”
