Gold Diggers

Actress Robin Givens sits on her husband, who play wrestles with her mother, Ruth, in their new home in Los Angeles, May 1988

Tyson explains why he portrayed Givens as a gold-digging horror in his play "Undisputed Truth": "I couldn't tell them, 'Listen, I don't blame Robin for doing that s--- because I was a f---ing piece of s---.' I couldn't say that. They wouldn't like me saying that, that I was a f---ing piece of s--- as a husband. So that didn't fly. She's an easy target to talk about. I played that card." But he says he doesn't feel angry at her any longer. "Not at all."
