In a 2011 interview, Tyson admitted that he used to skip school when he was young because of his weight. He reportedly weighed 200 pounds by the time he was 13. "I was skipping school because I used to be an overweight kid with glasses," he told Access Hollywood. "So every time I went to school, people would just kick the crap out of me."
