Boxing legend Mike Tyson is the latest celeb to weigh in on the current Michael Jackson controversy, stating that he would not allow his child to hang out with the star.

Tyson spoke to Michael Rapaport who was a guest on his 'Hotboxin' With Mike Tyson' podcast, and said the following:

"The parents have to be responsible for that sh*t. I just thought the fact that these kids, Michael is telling them, 'if anyone knows about this we're both gonna go to prison forever.' It was just ... really horrible. I have an 8-year-old kid. I wouldn't let Michael hang out with my kid. I wouldn't let my kid go over Michael's house. I love Michael. Ya know what I mean. Michael has a reputation of this."

But he revealed that he is giving Jackson's accusers the side-eye due to the timing of the doc:

"Whatever happened when [his accusers] was kids is wrong. What you're doing now is even wrong. Coming out saying this stuff. It comes across that these are guys just out to get some money."
