The acting duo playing the couple, who were married in 1988 and divorced a year later, were both dressed in expensive ensembles as they made their out of the high end retail store, Gucci. 

Their characters had just been on a shopping spree, considering the Tyson character was carrying no less than a half dozen bags in his hands.

Rhodes, 31, oozed stoic Mike Tyson confidence decked out in a brown-patterned, double-breasted suit as he was being mobbed by a group of actors playing photographers. 

While Harrier, 31, appeared to have Givens’ sophisticated elegance down decked out on a green skirt and matching double-breasted jacket and heels.

The couple, who had a tumultuous relationship, made their way past the news photographers, arm-in-arm, to an awaiting limousine.

Matters came to a head when the couple gave a joint interview with Barbara Walters on the ABC TV show 20/20 in September 1988, in which Givens described life with Tyson as ‘torture, pure hell, worse than anything I could possibly imagine’.

All while Tyson sat next to her in a calm expression on his face. 

She would file for divorce just one month after that interview.
