Jordan Hill, a power forward the Los Angeles Lakers acquired from the Houston Rockets about halfway through the season, has been charged with felony assault stemming from an alleged altercation in February.

According to police, Hill faces accusations that he pushed and choked 28-year old Darlene Luna, his girlfriend of two years, on the afternoon of February 29.

If convicted of the third-degree felony, Hill would face a sentence of two to 10 years in jail, along with a $10,00 fine. He will have to face the charge inside a Houston tomorrow morning, while the team is scheduled to play its second game of the playoffs tomorrow evening.

But Hill practiced with the Lakers today and faced the media afterward. He released a statement that said he'd remain focused on Los Angeles' drive to a title.

"I'm saddened to learn of the accusations that were filed against me today. At this time I cannot comment further other than to say that my attorneys are working to gather all of the facts and evidence and I plan to cooperate completely with the authorities.

"I'd like to apologize to the Lakers organization and to all of their fans for the untimeliness of these accusations. I promise to keep my focus and attention on the playoffs during this time and to helping my team win another championship."

Hill had a very strong opening game in the Lakers defeat of the Nuggets on Sunday, pulling down 10 rebounds to go with 10 points.

Things might get a bit awkward in a few weeks.

With Kanye West and Jay-Z scheduled to go on tour, sources tell Great Britain's The Sun that the latter's better half is not a fan of the former's new girlfriend, a certain giant-breasted reality star.

“Beyonce’s not happy about Kanye’s relationship with Kim," an insider claims to the publication. “She had a conservative upbringing which was very different to Kim’s."

  • Kim Kardashian and Cleavage
  • Beyonce in NYC

What, exactly, is it about Kim Kardashian that bugs Beyonce so much? Says the source:

“Bey’s never been impressed by her record with men." Well, yeah.

"And the sex tape that leaked a few years ago." Good point.

“Her 72-day marriage doesn’t exactly inspire her with confidence that she wants the relationship with Kanye to last either." Hard to argue with that.

Still, the women will need to make nice. West and Jay-Z will be touring Europe in May and June, with sources telling the newspaper that Kardashian has already lined up product launches around the same time in the area. She'll be there. So will Beyonce, it stands to reason.

Let's hope these two get it on because, let's face it: if they do, we all know who will be the survivor.

With the semifinals on tap tonight, some of the biggest stars in music are set to perform on the season two finale of The Voice next Tuesday, May 8.

You might not typically expect to see Justin Bieber, Lady Antebellum, Flo Rida and Hall & Oates perform at the same event, but that's The Voice for you.

Bieber will return to the show for a world premiere performance of his new single, "Boyfriend," from his upcoming album, Believe, available June 19.

Biebs' made a big announcement about Believe on The Voice a few weeks back (above), when Carson Daly invited him back for the finale. He obliged.

Hip hop star Flo Rida, meanwhile, is set to perform a medley of his hit single, "Wild Ones," and one additional song that has yet to be determined.

Daryl Hall and John Oates, the number-one selling duo in history (really), will perform their first ever hit single, "Rich Girl." The first of 29 Top 40 hits.

Finally, pop-country sensations Lady Antebellum will grace The Voice with a performance of "Wanted You More" from their latest hit album, Own the Night.

He mocked the size of President Obama's ears, the libido of the Secret Service and, of course, Kim Kardashian.

So how did Jimmy Kimmel feel about his speech at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night?

The talk show host told Entertainment Weekly he thought he was "solid," adding: “The President and the First Lady both said they thought it was very funny."

Kimmel also said it was the second "most terrified" he's ever been, following his first appearance with David Letterman and, as you might expect, it's a "very strange room" in which to use material.

“One person told me afterward they were scared to laugh at a joke because they were sitting next to [House Majority Leader] Eric Cantor, who I didn’t even realize was there," Kimmel said. "She didn’t want him to see her laughing at a joke I made about him. Half the people on any given joke have to keep [the laughter] to themselves.”

As for President Obama's speech? It was "very good, very funny," the comedian said, although a certain actor in attendance drew more attention than the Commander-in-Chief.

“George Clooney is far more popular than any person in Washington D.C.,” Jimmy said. “They were pushing people back [from him]. It was starting to get crazy.”

Nadya Suleman is officially insolvent. Like for real broke.

Octomom filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy today in federal court, just one month after going on welfare. Apparently public assistance didn't go far enough.

The bankruptcy filing confirms what we pretty much already knew - that the mom of 14 is carrying a mountain of debt she has no hope of paying off.

Broke Octomom

Chapter 7 is the most serious form of bankruptcy, so although it isn't specified in public records how much Octomom owes and to whom ... it's clearly a lot.

And she's flat broke. Her house, which was in such horrendous condition last week that police investigated her for child endangerment, will be auctioned off.

Suleman has struggled with her finances for years, which isn't a big shock if you do the quick math: 14 kids + 0 jobs + 0 partner = deep financial crap.

It's all very sad, and begs the question ...

Should her kids be taken away?

The 911 call made by Jennifer Hudson's sister, upon finding the body of her murdered mother, was released today in court.

The heartbreaking evidence is being used by the defense in its case against William Balfour, who is on trial for killing Hudson's mother, brother and nephew. And the portions played for the jury were as heartbreaking as you can imagine.

"Help, please," Julia Hudson is heard telling a 911 operator. "Oh, God. Somebody's killed my mother, somebody's killed my mother... Please help me. Oh my God, oh my God... please... please... can you please send an ambulance, please. Oh my God."

Grammy Tribute

The call lasts about three minutes, with Julia saying she just arrived home from work and detailing how there's "blood coming from her her heard" and a "bullet hole in our front door."

Jennifer Hudson took the stand last week and broke down in tears when shown a photo of her mother. She then exited the courtroom a day later when attorneys broke out a picture of her nephew's corpse.

Bobby Brown taped an interview with Matt Lauer this morning - for segments on The Today Show that will run Wednesday and Thursday - and made it a priority to defend himself against accusations that his hard-partying lifestyle played a role in the tragic death of Whitney Houston.

"I didn't get high before I met Whitney," Brown says, seemingly blaming HER for HIS problems, although clarifying that he did smoke "weed" and drink prior to their relationship.

But Brown emphasized that he wasn't "the one that got Whitney on drugs at all" and that he feels "terrible" folks think otherwise.

Bobby Brown on Today

Because, really people, the important thing here is how Bobby Brown feels.

Houston and Brown were married from 1992 to 2007 and are the parents of a daughter, Bobbi Kristina. The singer told Lauer that their one year of filming Being Bobby Brown had a profound affect on their recreational drug use.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard became the proud parents of their second baby girl a week and a half ago, a rep for Gyllenhaal confirmed today.

Born April 19 in New York, the parents named their daughter Gloria Ray.

Gyllenhaal, 34, and Sarsgaard, 41, are already parents to daughter Ramona, 5. Together since 2002, the couple tied the knot in Brindisi, Italy, in 2009.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard

Since first becoming a mother in 2006, Gyllenhaal, like so many other working moms, says she's struggled to balance her personal and professional life.

"I had been so focused on Ramona and she's been everything to me, but I'm also an actress," she said recently. "It's not possible to do it perfectly."

Sarsgaard, meanwhile, had another set of concerns.

"I've seen kids with siblings - I don't have any, so I don't know - but they generally go for about five minutes, 'Oh, cool! Anyway, what are we going to do now? Can we return it?' I think it gets boring quickly, at first, and it takes them awhile to bond."

We have a feeling Ramona will manage. Congrats!

The New Jersey Nets are no longer. The Brooklyn Nets are the future.

The newly-relocated NBA franchise even has a black-and-white logo, unveiled Monday at a sporting goods store on Flatbush Avenue, right across the street from its soon-to-be-completed home arena, the $1 billion Barclays Center.

Check out the Brooklyn Nets logo below:

Star center Brook Lopez was joined by coach Avery Johnson, General Manager Billy King, Bruce Ratner, the real estate developer, minority owner and catalyst behind the team's relocation, and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz.

"Hello Brooklyn,'" Lopez said. "I've been waiting a long time to say that. It's exciting."

No word if co-owner Jay-Z or soon-to-be free agent Kris Humphries were there.
