Steve-O and Mike Tyson once did coke together for three hours in a Hollywood Hills bathroom.

The Jackass star has been open about his drug addiction and journey to sobriety and recently marked 15 years being sober.

As he ventured further into doing stand-up comedy, the professional prankster discussed his eighth year of sobriety in 2016 and reflected on some of his wild, drug-fuelled experiences including the time he stumbled into a party with the former professional boxer.

Steve-O wasn’t invited to the party, but he showed up anyway and he didn’t arrive empty handed…

“I’ve done f**king cocaine with Mike Tyson, dude,” he told GQ in 2016.

“We spent three hours locked in a bathroom together. There was this house party in the Hollywood Hills. And I remember I was distinctly not invited, but I showed up and rang the doorbell.

"Mike Tyson opened up the door. I said, ‘Hey, is it cool if I come in?’ And he said, ‘You got any coke?’ And I told him, ‘Yeah, dude, I got a bunch.’ And I did. I had like a whole eight ball in one pocket, half an eight ball in the other pocket.”

The former MTV star was ‘packing’ with coke and he was invited in. The pair locked themselves in a bathroom where Tyson reportedly used an empty ‘tube of paper’ that was a regular tobacco cigarette without the tobacco in it to scoop up the cocaine he chopped up. This left Steve-O feeling ‘fascinated’ and he didn’t think Tyson’s trick would work but it did…

“Yeah, I was packing,” he continued.

“So we locked ourselves in this bathroom. So there we are, and he asked me for a cigarette while I was chopping up a bunch of blow on the counter.

"He rolled it back and forth between his fingers and all the tobacco fell out, and he kept doing it until nothing was left except a tube of paper connected to the cylinder.

"And he turned it right side up and started scooping cocaine into it, like pure cocaine. Nothing but. And I’m fascinated. I’m thinking that can’t work.

"It boiled down to the most f**king gripping science-fair project ever. He filled it until it was f**king full as f**k. And he made it work, man. He sat there and smoked the whole deal.”

So what did they talk about? Steve-O said: "At that time in my life, I would develop Tourette’s syndrome if I was f**ked up enough, just blurting out inappropriate s**t.

"So I said to him, my exact words, 'You know, Mike, I don’t have a racist bone in my body, but I like to consider myself a n****r.' [laughs] I’ll never forget, he said, 'You ask me, the definition of that word is anybody who uses it.'

"And I was like, 'Damn! Iron Mike, deep as f**k!' And so we’re talking about the finer points of racism in America or whatever, just sort of philosophizing about how to make the world a better place, and it was just f**king incredible, man.

"The last thing he said to me was, 'You know, Steve, everybody’s got you wrong. You’re actually really smart.' And the next time I spent real time with Mike Tyson, one-on-one conversing, was when we were locked up in the psychiatric ward together."

Many years later, in 2021, Steve-O celebrated his 13th year of sobriety by posting two photos to his Twitter account.

He wrote alongside the images: "So grateful to be celebrating thirteen years of sobriety today - thanks to everyone who helped me get here!"

The left photo is from 2006, where Steve-O is surrounded by what appears to be nitrous oxide canisters, while the second picture from 2021, sees the entertainer surrounded vegetables with Steve-O looking a lot more happier and healthier.
