Today, Mike Tyson's memoir, Undisputed Truth, dropped and just by reading the excerpts, it's already looking like a must read. While the book tracks Tyson's life from his humble beginnings in Brooklyn to his rise to superstardom, there are plenty of amazing stories. Some of which involve his interactions with celebrities.

In an excerpt from Rolling Stone, Tyson, with the help of author Larry Sloman, reveals the time he swung by the house of Eddie Murphy to find him and his brother Charlie in amazement over getting spanked in a game of basketball by Prince (in high heel shoes) and his team. 

The next day, I went back to Eddie's house and Eddie and Charlie were marveling over the fact that Prince and his guys had kicked their ass playing basketball. Prince had on his high heel shoes and he was still hitting every bucket. Swoosh. Swoosh.

So, apparently that hilarious Chappelle's Show skit involving Prince winning a basketball game (see below) was based on a true story, huh? 

Game. Blouses.
