Mike Tyson Says He Was Sexually Abused at Age 7 (Watch)

*Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson says he was a victim of sexual abuse as a young child.

During an interview Wednesday on SirusXM’s Opie Radio, the 48-year-old said that a man “snatched” him off the street at age seven and abused him.

“[The man] bullied me and sexually abused me and stuff,” he said.

Tyson described the perpetrator as an “old man” and said it only happened “one time” while living in the Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville neighborhoods of Brooklyn in the ‘70s.

“Never seen him again,” Tyson added.

When asked if anyone ever knew about his story, Tyson said, “It’s nobody’s business to know. Certain people know, who I told.”

He never told the police either. “I just went through with my life,” he said.

He’s also unsure if the incident affected him. “I don’t know if I did or not,” said Tyson. “I don’t always remember. Maybe I do, but I don’t. I’m not embarrassed or ashamed of anything from that perspective.”

Ashlee Simpson Asking Mom-In-Law Diana Ross for Industry Hookups?

*Ashlee Simpson is reportedly seeking her famous mother-in-law’s advice in trying to revive her career.

The singer, who recently married Diana Ross’s son Evan Ross, has reportedly begged her to introduce her to new producers.

“Ashlee’s constantly hitting up Diana for industry contacts,” a source reportedly told OK! magazine. “Diana has no problem helping her son out, and she really does like Ashlee, but she knows a spoiled princess when she sees one.”

The insider added: “[Ashlee] is really pushing her luck with Diana.”

Simpson, 30, married Evan, 26, in a lavish ceremony at Diana’s house in Connecticut last month. The Boss was heavily involved in the ceremony and even officiated the nuptials before performing her ballad “Endless Love” at the reception.

The Motown vet previously dismissed rumors of tension between her and Ashlee. Shortly after their wedding, she said: ”I want only love, happiness, and joy for my son and his bride.”

Pres. Obama Backtracks After Implying Michelle Doesn’t Work

*With a quickness, President Obama on Tuesday cleaned up what could’ve been an inadvertent suggestion that his wife hasn’t worked since being in the White House.

His remark occurred while advocating for fair pay for women at a rally for Wisconsin Democrat gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke Tuesday.

“I tell you, when Michelle was working, I wanted to make sure she was getting paid,” he said.

“And by the way,” he continued, “I mean, I should point out, she is working really hard now as first lady and doesn’t get paid, but that’s a whole other thing. But — because I didn’t want her to think, like, what, I’m not working? Michelle works. I promise you.”

Before her husband assumed the presidency, the first lady was a lawyer at Sidley Austin, where she met Barack. She worked in Chicago’s public sector before holding positions at the University of Chicago and the University of Chicago Hospitals.

And she hasn’t slowed down since the D.C. move. Just this month, she’s made campaign stops in nine states, NBC reported earlier this week. She also danced with a turnip to Lil Jon and DJ Snake’s “Turn Down for What” to promote healthy eating.

SNL’s Michael Che Criticized for Comments on Viral Catcall Video

Actor Michael Che attends the "Top Five" premiere during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival at Princess of Wales Theatre on September 6, 2014 in Toronto, Canada

*“Saturday Night Live” cast-member Michael Che has been criticized for his Instagram and Facebook posts reacting to a viral video about street harassment.

The video in question – “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman,” by Shoshana B. Roberts and Rob Bliss – shows Roberts being catcalled and verbally harassed by men more than 100 times as she walks around New York City. At press time, it had been watched more than 17.3 million times on YouTube.

Public reaction to the video has been strong since it surfaced on Tuesday. Women on Twitter and Facebook were commiserating with the filmmaker, while a number of men and women were shocked to learn that the kind of attention she received from men in the video could be unwelcome, much less considered to be harassment.

Che’s thoughts were of the latter. He posted on Twitter:

The Instagram post referenced in the tweets have since been deleted. But not before it was captured in screen shots and published in several critical stories about the comedian.

His deleted Instagram post was also a Facebook status update (also now deleted) that compared the woman’s experience on the street to the crazed reactions “SNL” fans have when they see him out and about. He wrote:

In a critical piece about Che’s comments, Salon’s Sarah Gray wrote:

Clearly comedy is often used as a method to explore topical and uncomfortable subjects — to both confront and understand them — but this joke reveals that Che doesn’t quite understand what is so problematic about street harassment: Men feeling entitled to direct their unsolicited thoughts at women — often but not limited to comments on their appearance or asking them to smile. Needless to say, this is very different from Che being recognized as a celebrity/public figure and being asked to take a photo.

After his jokes sparked criticism this morning, Che posted the following apology:

Side note: Che’s former “Daily Show” colleague Jessica Williams offered her take on this very subject in this piece that aired in September:
