Lamar Odom pleads no contest to DUI, gets probation

Former NBA player Lamar Odom, husband of Khloé Kardashian, pleaded no contest Monday to a drunken driving charge and accepted a sentence of three years’ probation and three months of alcohol abuse treatment.

In a deal with prosecutors, Odom entered the plea to one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence and was also ordered to pay $1,814 in fines and penalties, Los Angeles city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said. Odom had faced a maximum sentence of six months in jail.

The status of his suspended driver’s license will be determined at a separate hearing in front of the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Odom’s attorney, Richard Hutton, appeared in court to enter the plea for him. A phone message left with Hutton was not immediately returned.

The 34-year-old power forward and husband of reality TV star Khloé Kardashian is currently out of the NBA, going unsigned as a free-agent after averaging a career-low 4 points and 5.9 rebounds last season with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Kordell Stewart and 'Real Housewives' star Porsha Williams' divorce is final

Former Pittsburgh Steeler standout Kordell Stewart’s divorce from his Real Housewives of Atlanta star wife Porsha is final. Fulton County Superior Court Judge John J. Goger issued a final decree in the divorce case Thursday.

Stewart, who retired from the NFL last year, filed for divorce from Porsha Williams in March. He claimed his marriage to Williams was “irretrievably broken.”

Williams’ lawyer Randy Kessler says they are glad to amicably resolve the matter. The pair used to appear together on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Williams is still on the show.

Stewart’s initial filing said the two married on May 21, 2011, and have no children together. Stewart was a sensation in Pittsburgh in the late 1990s and was nicknamed “Slash” for his versatility as quarterback, running back, and wide receiver. He is a sports talk show host in Atlanta.

The 32-year-old cornerback was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2003 and has made three Pro Bowl appearances.

Lamar Odom charged with DUI

Basketball star Lamar Odom has been charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, nearly two weeks after his Mercedes-Benz was pulled over on a Southern California freeway.

The Los Angeles city attorney’s office said Friday that the charges stem from Odom’s Aug. 30 arrest in the San Fernando Valley. The husband of reality TV star Khloé Kardashian was taken into custody after a sobriety test.

The California Highway Patrol said Odom’s car was observed traveling in a “serpentine manner.” The 33-year-old Odom could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

A call to Odom’s agent for comment was not immediately returned.

After spending the 2012 season with the Dallas Mavericks, Odom returned to the Clippers last year. He is now a free agent.

LeBron James marries high school sweetheart

LeBron James has another ring.

The Miami Heat star married Savannah Brinson at the posh Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego on Saturday, according to two people familiar with the details of the ceremony.

About 200 guests were present for the ceremony, said one of the people, both of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because the wedding was private and the couple had yet to release any details. The ceremony was the highlight of a three-day celebration that will conclude with a brunch on Sunday.

James and Brinson, 27, have been together since high school and have two sons. James, 28, proposed just after midnight on Jan. 1, 2012, in Miami Beach, flanked by many of his teammates — just as he was again Saturday night for his wedding.

Intense security measures surrounded the wedding, and even some of the invited guests were unclear on some specific details in the days leading up to the long-awaited event that came less than three months after James and the Heat won their second straight NBA title.

Oscar De La Hoya admits himself to rehab

Oscar De La Hoya has admitted himself to a treatment facility as he continues to fight his substance abuse.

The former boxer issued a statement Tuesday saying he voluntarily admitted himself to an unnamed facility. The move comes on the eve of the biggest fight of the year for his promotion company Saturday night when Floyd Mayweather Jr. takes on Canelo Alvarez.

“I will not be at the fight this Saturday to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself into a treatment facility,” De La Hoya said in his statement. “I explained this to Canelo and he understood that my health and long term recovery from my disease must come first.”

De La Hoya first admitted two years ago that he was an alcoholic and drug user and had been in treatment. He told the Los Angeles Times last month that he sometimes attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings six days a week, but had slipped at times in his treatment.

“The fight life, that was easy,” he told the paper. “This is a battle I have every day.”
