On a recent guest appearance on the “Wendy Williams Show,” Robin Givens discussed her brief marriage to boxer Mike Tyson and noted that she was “ground zero” for the #MeToo movement.

“I would like to believe I’m a better person for it—more compassionate, more loving,” Givens said. She filed for divorce about eight months after their February 7, 1988 wedding, after Tyson had threatened to kill her.

Williams agreed that Givens was ahead of her time in speaking out about the abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of the famed boxer.

Somebody told me what you said, somebody said, ‘You were like ground zero of #MeToo,’” Givens recalled. “I pray that anything I’ve gone through, however difficult it was for me, helped somebody else.”
