Robin Givens Is Not Happy About Upcoming Mike Tyson Biopic

 Robin Givens opening up about feeling dread when she first learned of the Mike Tyson biopic that’s currently in development starring Jamie Foxx.“I felt this drop in the pit of my stomach and was like, ‘Oh no, here we go again,’” the actress, 55, tells PEOPLE. “I felt like the world was crumbling again.”


Givens was 23 when she wed the boxing champion in February 1988 —  but they called it quits eight months later, amid allegations of physical abuse.

After the split, “I remember my ex-husband calling up and saying, ‘I’ve decided I’m not going to kill you. I’m going to make your life so miserable you’re going to slit your own throat die,’” she recalls.

Givens shares her own experiences with domestic violence with organizations including the National Domestic Violence Hotline, and notes that “when I speak to women and I sit in shelters and I hold children, I realize that the details of our stories are the same,” she says.
