Mike Tyson

Former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson is no stranger to money problems. During his boxing career, which included a stint as heavyweight champion of the world, he had earned $400 million, but he lost it all through poor business decisions, extravagant spending, and two divorce settlements.

Actress Robin Givens was Tyson’s first wife. She had married him in February 1988 and divorced him one year later, ironically enough on Valentine’s Day. She described the marriage as "torture, pure hell, worse than anything I could possibly imagine." Givens divorced the fighter and won a $10 million settlement.

Tyson later married Monica Turner in 1997, but they divorced in 2003. In that settlement, Tyson lost their Connecticut home, custody of their two children, and Turner walked away with $11.3 million.
