Robin Givens issued a cease & desist to keep her marital misdeeds out of the upcoming Mike Tyson biopic.

The 55-year-old actress married Tyson in 1988 when he was at the peak of his boxing career. But their relationship quickly went downhill, as Givens allegedly leaked negative stories about Tyson to the gossip tabloids.

Givens was accused of being a gold digger and taking advantage of the punch drunk boxing champ.

In an infamous interview with Barbara Walters that aired on September 29, 1988, Givens shocked the nation by accusing Tyson of physically abusing her and being manic-depressive.

Tyson's fans accused Givens and her helicopter mom, Ruth Roper, of drugging Tyson before the Walters interview.

Givens's mother, seen here helping her daughter drag Tyson in a photo shoot, was also accused of leaking dirt on Tyson.

It's understandable that Givens doesn't want any of her dirty laundry aired in the Tyson biopic. It's safe to say Givens was one of the most hated celebrities of the '80s.

A representative for Tyson clarified that Ms. Givens's misdeeds will not be a part of the biopic. But she issued the C&D anyhow.

"As of now, Mr. Tyson's attorneys have not received any cease and desist, but there isn't nor has there been any intention of including his relationship with her in his biopic. He wishes her well in all her endeavors," the rep said.

Jamie Foxx bulked up to the delight of his female (and some male) fans. The comedic actor has wowed fans with his pumped-up physique as he transforms himself into the Black hulk to portray boxer Mike Tyson in a new movie.

Jamie perfected Tyson's famous lisp as part of his stand-up routine years ago and now he's bulking up to look like Mike for the upcoming biopic Finding Mike.

Posting a shirtless photo of himself on Instagram on Friday, the 52-year-old Oscar winner added the caption: "The transformation begins... FINDING MIKE."

"It is no secret that I have been pursuing the @miketyson biopic for some time... people always ask me when is it going to happen...? things have finally lined up... A few months ago we started the journey... The first but biggest task is to transform the body... with a regiment [sic] of pull-ups dips and push-ups we are off to a pretty good start... we have a ways to go but God willing."

Jamie's fans complained about the poor quality of the images on his Instagram. One user asked if his phone was a throwback from the early 2000s.

It's going to be difficult for Jamie to bulk up at his age. Muscles naturally begin to go limp after age 45 when male hormone levels start to decline.

Sure, he can take steroids or supplements to boost his male androgens (hormones), but his huge muscles will still be soft rather than the hard, chiseled look that the ladies (and men) like.

Mike Tyson does not play about his children. The former heavyweight boxing champ debunked a rumor that he offered $10 million to any man he would marry his daughter, Mikey Tyson.

Tyson took offense to comedian Michael Blackson for offering to impregnate Mikey.

"Where she at? I'll tear her a** up," Blackson wrote on social media. He added: "I'll then go shopping plus she's kinda cute."

He messaged Tyson privately, offering to marry his daughter and give him grandchildren.

"IF this is true, I think I'm finally ready to settle down. I known I've ben dipping n dabbing a few snow bunnies and Asian persuasion but I'm ready for your beautiful queen."

He continued:

"I'm ready to give u some grand kids that will have the complexion of Tyson Bedford [sic], knowledge of Cicely Tyson, talk like you Mike Tyson and hopefully not built like Tyson Fury. I really don't give a f**k about the money but I'll take it. Waiting to hear from you father in law sir."

Tyson was not impressed and allegedly threatened bodily harm if he ever catches Blackson offline. Blackson shared Tyson's private DMs on Instagram.

"Listen u black little bitch, this st ain't real and soon as I find the person that started that meme, imma knock hem [sic] the f*ck out so make sure it ain't you burnt roach looking bitch."

The 53-year-old father of seven added: "My daughter is happily in a relationship with a nice looking man so she's not interested in an overcooked hotdog like you. Next time you do my podcast, imma knock the black off you. It might take a year because you black as f**k."

He concluded by telling Blackson to stay out of his DM "before I get your black a** deported you geico lizard looking b***h."

Mr. Blackson should heed Tyson's warning. Fathers don't take kindly to social media trolls using their daughters as click bait for likes and follows.

Nelson Mandela

South Africa's first black president Nelson Mandela passed away at his home today. He was 95. Tributes and condolences flooded social networking websites as world leaders, former presidents, celebrities and citizens of the world remembered the anti-apartheid civil rights leader.

President Obama spoke on Mandela's passing from the White House about 45 minutes after the announcement that Mandela had died.

"He no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages," said Obama, borrowing the words of Edwin M. Stanton, who, as Abraham Lincoln lay on his deathbed, said "He now belongs to the ages.”
