In an interview with Mirror.co.uk, Mickey's ex-wife, Debra revealed all the details about Mickey unknown past and their marriage.

She confessed how this tough looking guy was, in fact, a terrified neurotic and phobic person who wanted much love, care, and security.

She further added,

"He is the most thin-skinned, over-sensitive person I have ever met. When we met he was like a little abused dog. He was so vulnerable.

He hated flying and he wouldn't go in the ocean because he was afraid there'd be sharks. He was so nervous."

In their decade-long relationship, fame and money changed the insecure actor to a self-destructive, drug abuse. She also stated that his drug addiction and insecurities became the major reason behind their divorce.

He gradually became self-controlling and abusive and didn't even let Debra work on movies because of his jealousy and controlling habits.

Their marriage finally ended in 1989 but has still remained good friends over the years. 

Debra moved on with her life and married her husband Scott Fuller, with whom she has a daughter named Ruby.

The couple tied knots on June 26, 1992. But behind this love story, there hides a dangerous, life-threatening romance, we could never even imagine.

Model turned actress Carre was just 20, when she first met Mickey on the sets of her debut film, Wild Orchid.

Spellbound by the young actress's beauty, Mickey was already head-over-heels for the actress and his charm and humor won over the beautiful actress and they started dating.

Despite everything, Carre was still not happy as she revealed in an interview back in 2011.

The then actress confessed that her relationship with the actor was very depressing and troublesome as he was jealous, insecure and angry all the time.

The actor whose face was recovering after many bouts he took in the ring, also took up plastic surgery to have a makeover of his face.

He started getting cheek implants, botox, and several other things that apparently didn't turn out to do well, ending him up with the stretched and craggy face.

He revealed about his painful times to the Mail Online, quoting,

"Most of it was to mend the mess of my face because of the boxing, but I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together.

I had my nose broken twice. I had five operations on my nose and one on a smashed cheekbone."

Mickey with his surgery failure, drug abuse, and alcohol addiction, committed domestic violence and even once shot her then-girlfriend Otis.

She recalled this horrible incident and stated,

"We were almost at the restaurant when I looked down and saw a .357 Magnum gun on the floor near my feet.!!

And when asked to get rid of it, Rourke made her carry the weapon in her bag and when they got home, the Magnum accidentally got discharged from her purse, leaving a bullet lodged just inches away from her heart.
