Mike Tyson - Mike Tyson's Ex-wife Accused Of Failing To Pay Divorce Fees

A representative for Mike Tyson's ex-wife Robin Givens has dismissed allegations the actress neglected to pay a lawyer on her former divorce team.
Marvin Mitchelson allegedly drew up divorce papers for Givens in the midst of her legal battle with the retired boxer in 1988, and now the lawyer's widow, Marcella, has accused the 47 year old of failing to pay him for his work.
She tells the New York Daily News, "Marvin worked really hard on getting those papers filed overnight for Givens and was very upset she fired him and never paid him the $15,000 (£9,375). (I) could certainly use the money."
However, Givens' publicist, James Grant, has dismissed the claims, saying, "She had one meeting with Mitchelson and signed immediately with Raoul Felder, who represented her throughout the entire case. It was just a brief meeting. She doesn't owe him any money."
Mitchelson, who represented dozens of celebrities throughout his career, including Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone, lost his battle with cancer in 2004.
Tyson and Givens married in February, 1988, but split several months later.

Why the HELL don't folks get off my girl Robin Givens's back? For so long she had to endure the guilt-tripping of her mother ("We [black women] have had to work twice as hard to be as good." "If I'd only had the advantages you have..." et al). Then she went through a genuinely hellish marriage to the arrogant and flat-out brutish Mike Tyson. Now she has to put with legal allegations against her from her own lawyer! After all the crap this gal has been forced to undergo, doesn't she deserve some happiness? Robin, my dearest, you keep your gorgeous head up and don't stand for any more s**t!
