    Mike Tyson's Daughter Remains in Critical Condition

    Mike Tyson is all over the news this week—and, sadly, it's not because of rave reviews for his new documentary or comedic timing in The Hangover.

    The boxing bad boy's 4-year-old daughter, Exodus Tyson, is currently on life support after getting her neck tangled in a cord from a treadmill in her Phoenix home Monday.

    Police say Exodus was playing on the exercise machine at the time of the mishap. Her 7-year-old brother discovered her and called for his mother, who was cleaning in a separate room at the moment of the accident. She called 911, and the child was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. (Police have not released the mother's name.)

    Tyson, 42, was in Las Vegas at the time, but has since arrived in Phoenix to be by his daughter's side.

    "The Tyson family would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks for all your prayers and support, and we ask that we be allowed our privacy at this difficult time," the boxer's rep said in a statement.

    The child is described as in "extremely critical condition."

    Meanwhile, Tyson's ex-wife of 20 years ago, actress Robin Givens, is being targeted by the feds for nearly $300,000 in unpaid taxes.

    According to Forbes, the 44-year-old Family That Preys star owes $292,000 in back taxes, interest and penalties reaching as far back as 1996. A lawsuit was filed last week in Tampa requesting a formal judgment against the actress.

    This is not Givens' first run-in with tax trauma—she's had other state and federal clashes that were cleared, presumably because she eventually paid in full.
