Mike Tyson and his wife Robin Givens on 20/20 with Barbara Walters – Aired on September 28, 1988.
In an interview with Barbara Walters at the couple’s New Jersey home, Givens accused Tyson of domestic abuse and being mentally unstable. Givens began by listing Tyson’s qualities, but quickly moved on to his deficits. “He’s got a side to him that’s scary. Michael is intimidating, to say the least. I think there’s a time when he cannot control his temper and that’s frightening to me, to my mother, to anyone around.” She described her seven months of marriage as “torture, pure hell, worse than anything I could possibly imagine,” as Tyson listened. “Does he hit you?” Walters asked. “He shakes, he pushes, he swings,” she responded. “Just recently I have become afraid. I mean very, very much afraid.” A week after the interview aired, Givens filed for divorce.
