Prolific actress Robin Givens who played Darlene in "Head of the Class," has a biracial son with her ex-lover, Murphy Jensen, a former tennis player. Find out the untold truths about the man.


Jensen is also the former longtime partner of American actress Robin Givens, who was formerly involved with Mike Tyson. The duo never exchanged marital vows, but they had a son named Williams Given Jensen in the course of their relationship.

Murphy Jensen is a past tennis champion who marveled at tennis lovers with his skills. His height is 6 ft 4, and he used to have long hair, which made him attractive to his female fans.

During his reigning days, the man enjoyed electrifying fame worthy of mention with his brother, Luke, another racket wiz. The pair had several endorsement deals and were guests of the Playboy mansion, owing to their charming personae.

Jensen studied at the University of Southern California on a tennis scholarship; by then, he was already popular. Unfortunately, this fame led him to commit to a life of substance use which ultimately ended his training career.


The scary episode began in the 90s until he decided that it had done enough damage, and he needed to get his physical and mental health back. While speaking to an outlet, he said:

"I didn't know what was wrong with me. Every day since my surrender on June 6th, 2006, the obsession to drink or use drugs has never returned."



His abstinence has helped him influence others by venturing into other projects and sharing his story. It has also impacted his personal lifestyle with those around him.

Jensen, who has two sons, confessed that despite his incredible amount of success in sports, he would not consider those his only greatest achievements. He said:

"I think it's impossible to have just one greatest achievement...But if I had to choose, without question I am most proud of being a father to two beautiful boys, Billy and Duke."


These statements are very true as Jensen often spends time with the boys. The boy-dad also shares these special bonding times online.

Two years ago, during Father's Day holiday, he went fishing with his eldest child, William. This year, to mark the holiday, the tennis champion posed with his two sons and wrote:

"Happy Father's Day World!!! Today's agenda...GRATITUDE SERVICE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY LOVE!! There's nothing more important to me than my sons."



Now slated as one of the best actresses, she used to be the most hated woman in America at some point. Givens skyrocketed to the spotlight after her Darlene role in "Head of the Class."

Through her fame, she began rubbing shoulders with the high and mighty in the industry and was even involved with the boxing legend Mike Tyson.


The pair married for one year before Givens filed for divorce, claiming that her then-husband was abusive. There was also news of her extra-marital affair with Brad Pitt, whom she dated after her divorce, all of which culminated in crowning her a gold digger.

This had an effect on her personal health and career, but she fought through and kept a sound mind; till this day, Givens is still an impressive onscreen personality.
