In a recent episode of Hotboxin’, former Heavyweight Boxing Champion Mike Tyson, who once lost a mind-boggling $400 million fortune and was robbed of $100 million by his promoter, made a heartfelt confession alongside singer Ne-Yo. The duo’s candid discussion took an unexpected turn as they delved into the surprising truths surrounding the pursuit of wealth and the often-misleading belief that money buys happiness.

With Ne-Yo admitting that he learned a harsh lesson about the limits of material success, and Tyson’s own rollercoaster financial journey, the conversation revealed some eye-opening insights about the complexities of happiness.


Does money equal Happiness?: Mike Tyson shares enlightening take

During the podcast episode, Ne-Yo and Mike Tyson engaged in a thought-provoking conversation about the pursuit of happiness and the relationship with wealth. They touched upon the paradox that some of the world’s richest people are also among the most depressed, challenging the common belief that material wealth is the key to emotional fulfillment.

Ne-Yo shared his perspective on the subject, saying, “When you don’t have it, you’re like oh if I could just, man I can’t wait till and then you get it and you’re like man, why am I still, why am I still not happy?” Tyson, laughing in agreement and stated, “Yeah, why am I still, started with nothing.”

To emphasize their point, they humorously imagined a scenario involving a content homeless person being questioned by a wealthy individual about the source of their happiness. Ne-Yo jokingly said, “Sh*t, what the hell you smiling for, look at your broke a**, what are you smiling for. Give me some of what you got.” Mike Tyson chimed in, “That is so killer, man. F**k you over the head before you’re homeless, motherf**er.”


Acknowledging the truth in their humorous exchange, Ne-Yo said, “It do not, it don’t buy happy, some of the most depressed people in the world are some of the richest people.” Mike Tyson concurred, “Yeah, it’s true.” Interestingly, Tyson’s conflict with money and wealth is well-known. From being the youngest heavyweight champ in history having amassed $600 million in net worth to going bankrupt, Tyson has seen life’s brutal adversities.
