An edited version of the shindig will air on the cable network Sept. 19, opposite the debut of Ashton Kutcher on Sheen's former CBS sitcom, Two and a Half Men.

It may come down to a tale of the videotape.

A publicist for Mike Tyson says the former boxing champ was merely defending his wife and 10-month-old child after an altercation with an overaggressive photographer at LAX on Wednesday.

"Mike acted in self-defense as a father protecting his child," said Tyson's spokeswoman Tammy Brook.


However, photographer Tony Echevarria, 50, said in video interview posted on TMZ.com that he "wasn't aggressive, I was shooting from a distance, and I was respectful." He indicated that his videotape should back up his story.

Originally posted 10/09/2009 01:05PM

Mike Tyson remains unclear about the details surrounding the death in May of his 4-year-old daughter Exodus – and the boxing legend prefers it that way, he says.

"Because if I know, then there might be a blame for it," Tyson, 43, tells Oprah Winfrey on her show set to air Monday, Oct. 12. "And if there's somebody to blame for it, there will be a problem."

An unconscious Exodus was found by her 7-year-old brother, Miguel. She was entangled in a cord, dangling from an exercise treadmill, and subsequently died of her injuries.
