Givens Sued Over Outstanding Tax Debt
Actress ROBIN GIVENS has been hit with a lawsuit from U.S. tax officials after running up debts and fees of $292,000 (£194,665).
Mike Tyson's ex-wife is accused of failing to keep up with her taxes since 1996 and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents have taken their case to a court in Tampa, Florida, to try and recoup the cash.
IRS officials have filed a request for a formal judgement against Givens, which would permit the government to collect the money through her earnings or levying her assets.
According to the court papers, Givens owes $222,000 (£148,000) in federal taxes and another $70,000 (£46,665) in interest and various penalties, reports Forbes.com.
