Ray Rice Wins Appeal, Suspension Lifted, Union Says

28 November 2014 2:12 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

New York - Ray Rice has won the appeal of his indefinite suspension by the NFL.

An arbitrator ruled Friday that his suspension should be vacated immediately. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones said Commissioner Roger Goodell's decision in September to change Rice's original suspension from two games to indefinite was "arbitrary."

Jones was deciding whether the NFL overstepped its authority in modifying Rice's two-game suspension after video of the Baltimore Ravens running back punching his fiancee- now his wife, Janay - became public.

Rice was released by the Ravens when the video went public. Rice and the union claimed he was essentially sentenced twice.

In her decision, Jones wrote:

"Because Rice did not mislead the commissioner and because there were no new facts on which the commissioner could base his increased suspension, I find that the imposition of the indefinite suspension was arbitrary. I therefore »

Robin Givens Calls Ray Rice Domestic Abuse Scandal a ‘Game Changer’ (Video)

12 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Domestic violence has become a national hot topic in the wake of the shocking video of NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancee in an elevator, and now actress Robin Givens, who allegedly suffered spousal abuse from ex-husband Mike Tyson, is speaking out on the issue. Appearing on The Today Show on Friday, Givens calls the Rice tape a “game-changer” if simply for the fact that the video takes the credibility issue off the table. “It's hard to be believed,” Givens said of her own experience and in talking to other domestic abuse victims. “Being believed is an issue.” Also read: Chris Brown's Advice. »

12 September 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The singer is still dealing with fallout from assaulting Rihanna in 2009.

More than five years after the fact, Chris Brown is still facing fallout from his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. So it stands to reason that he'd have words for Ray Rice in the wake of his NFL suspension.

Rice was officially cut from the Baltimore Ravens this week after a video leaked in which he could be seen assaulting his then-fiancee, now wife Janay Rice. A lot of people have had a lot of opinions on the matter (including Janay herself), and now Brown is chiming in.

"I think it's all about the choices you make," Brown told MTV News' Sway Calloway when asked what he had learned from his own experience. "With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past – not knowing how to express myself verbally and at the same time not knowing how to cope with my emotions »

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Gets An Endorsement From Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson, the boxing legend who achieved infamy for biting off an opponent’s ear, has endorsed the embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who is currently seeking reelection.

Mike Tyson Endorses Rob Ford

Ford believes he deserves a second chance. He believes that despite his personal failings, he also did the job he was elected to do well. A longtime admirer of Tyson’s prowess in the ring, Ford agreed to meet with Tyson, who was in town for his one-man show. In the end, Ford received an endorsement from the athlete, believing that his story fits into his own larger narrative that everyone makes mistakes.

“He’s a human being,” Tyson, who says Ford is the best mayor Toronto’s ever had, told reporters, according to the Toronto Star. “We have no idea what you do behind closed doors, what your habits are.”

30 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jamie Foxx is stepping back into the ring, this time to play one of the most notorious boxers of all time.

Variety reports that Foxx is in talks to play Mike Tyson in an untitled biopic to be written by Terence Winter ("Wolf of Wall Street," "Boardwalk Empire").

Tyson himself told the U.K.'s Mirror, "Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it. Within a year to 18 months, we're going to do the Mike Tyson story and he's going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie's pretty much my age so he can't portray me but they have this new system."

Tyson also indicated Martin Scorsese may be involved.

Winter has plenty of material to mine from. He could start with Tyson's troubled childhood (deadbeat dad, mother who died when he was 16) or when he started working with his first mentor, »
