Boxer Mike Tyson's advisers suggested he seek an annulment of his marriage, sparing him a cash settlement, on grounds Robin Givens may have deceived him into wedlock with a phony pregnancy, a report said Monday.

The Daily News quoted friends of Tyson as saying that three weeks before the wedding, Givens' mother told his managers her daughter was 31/2 months pregnant.An annulment could avoid the prospect of a monetary settlement with Givens, who filed for divorce in California where community property laws divide couples' assets 50-50, the News said.

Lawyer Howard Weitzman met Tyson in Cleveland this weekend to plan moving the divorce case to New York and countersuing Givens, who gave conflicting stories about miscarriages when she never became visibly pregnant, the report said.
