Mike Tyson and Robin Givens

Embattled boxer Mike Tyson and actress Robin Givens married in February 1988, only to have their relationship fall apart three months later. Givens cited spousal abuse when she filed for divorce from Tyson in May 1988. In 1992, the boxer was convicted of raping an 18-year-old-woman in Indianapolis, and he served three years in prison.
