Tyson can help Gazza beat addiction, says ex-lover

London, May 30 : British glamour model Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace has predicted that her ex-lover Mike Tyson can help football icon Gazza overcome his addiction problems.

She revealed that Tyson, who has already overcome his own booze and drug addictions, is now sure that he can help former England star Paul Gascoigne recover.

"Mike will be a brilliant help to Paul. He's an excellent person for him to talk to, almost like a counseller," Daily Star quoted her as saying.

"He will really sort Paul's problems out. Mike's really not like people think. He's made out to be this scary, fearsome person but he's nothing like that. He's a great guy and a perfect gentleman - and one of my good friends," she added.

Gazza is currently in rehab at the celeb favourite Priory clinic in Roehampton, south-west London.

He checked himself into the centre after staff at a hotel found him mumbling incoherantly and spinning in circles.
