Robin Givens Owes Lawyer Fees From 1988

11th Annual Women Who Care Luncheon

In a “Why did you wait so long to throw that shade?” report, the widow of an attorney who offered counsel to Robin Givens on her divorce from Mike Tyson has accused the actress of skipping the bill.

Why is she saying something two decades and some change later? Maybe she wanted to boost her follower account on Twitter. Or you know, the digits in her bank account.

Whatever, here’s the word courtesy of EURWeb:

The late Marvin Mitchelson allegedly drew up divorce papers for Givens’ legal battle with the retired boxer in 1988. Now, 24 years later, the lawyer’s widow, Marcella, has accused the 47-year-old of failing to pay him for his work.

“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,” she tells the New York Daily News. “(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.
