Robin Givens Wants No Part of Jamie Foxx’s Mike Tyson Biopic
Jamie Foxx has been building muscle to play Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic.
Meanwhile, Mike’s first wife, Robin Givens, is ready to take anyone to court over her portrayal in the film. But according to Page Six, Mike’s folks told us there are no plans for their relationship to be in the movie.
Of course, Mike and Robin were married in 1988 for eight months, but their relationship ended up being the center of scandals around domestic abuse.
Robin’s lawyers have gone so far as to “demand that Mr. Tyson cease and desist 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,” reports Page Six.
Her lawyers went on to say that Robin was “heartbroken” to send the legal letter, but alleged, “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.”
Mike’s camp, however, claim they never received such letter.
“As of now, Mr. Tyson’s attorneys have not received any cease and desist, but there isn’t nor has there been any intention of including his relationship with her in his biopic. He wishes her well in all her endeavors,” a rep told the outlet.
Well, Robin or no Robin, we’re sure people will be highly interested in the movie.
