Jamie Foxx has been preparing to play Mike Tyson in a film that may not have Robin Givens.
Lawyers for Givens sent Tyson and Foxx a cease-and-desist letter from "further defaming Ms. Givens, and to put those producing, writing and/or directing the proposed Tyson biopic, and those producing Mr. Tyson’s podcast, on notice that they are to refrain from portraying Ms. Givens in a false, negative and defamatory light.”
Givens was “heartbroken” to send the legal letter.
“While [she] has attempted to move on, she still finds herself fighting the abusive, demeaning and false accounts of their relationship by Mr. Tyson nearly 35 years later. It is time for Mr. Tyson to let this marriage be the relic of the past that it is.”
