This made Tyson feel sad about them. He replied, “That’s painful to see right. Seriously.”

Agreeing with Tyson, Maher compared the Depp and Heard drama with the definition of tragedy. Later, Tyson came up supporting Heard. He said, “But, you know people are beating up on the girl right, but I understand her too.”

Tyson’s reply paved the way for another question. Maher asked, “Who knows what happened inside that relationship, but what do you understand about Amber?”

To which, the 55-year-old replied, “I understand that she’s defending herself. She’s fighting for her life and psychologically thinks everybody’s against it because she’s not getting a good rep. She’s not looking good in the press.”

Tyson believes that Heard has her back against the wall and is looking to defend herself.

A look at the divorces of Mike Tyson

The youngest heavyweight champion ever married three times in his career. The first relationship he had was in the prime days of his career with an actress, Robin Givens. Though it did not work out, it was the most explosive relationship Tyson had. A few months later, things between the couple messed up, and they took divorce.

After Givens, Tyson married Monica Turner in 1997, seven years after their first meet-up. The couple kept things personal and remained away from the limelight. They lived together for six years and raised two children. Later, Turner accused Tyson of being unfaithful. Eventually, this paved the way for another divorce.

Since Tyson had been in several relationships, that did not end on good notes, so he is trying to understand Amber Heard’s condition.
