MIKE TYSON

Tyson's wife Robin Givens (right) went public in 1988 with reports of his violent behavior before divorcing him after eight months of marriage; he served three years in jail for raping 18-year-old beauty queen Desiree Washington in 1991 (left); and he briefly lost his boxing license after biting off part of Evander Holyfield's ear during a 1997 heavyweight fight in Las Vegas (center).
