This is a new one. John Goodman, a South Florida millionaire, legally adopted his girlfriend Heather Laruso Hutchins recently (he's 48, she's 42). Why?

Likely because he faces a devastating civil on DUI manslaughter charges, and his unusual legal move may be a means of protecting his assets legally.

John Goodman was involved in a fatal car accident in Palm Beach, Fla., in February 2010 that led to the death of 23-year-old student Scott Wilson.

He could face a long prison term, but it's his weird financial maneuver that caught media attention, following his adoption of girlfriend Heather Hutchins.

On March 6, he will be tried for DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide, after he allegedly ran a stop sign and crashed his Bentley into Wilson's vehicle.

He then fled the scene on foot as Wilson's car submerged in a nearby canal.

The millionaire did not call 911 for an hour, during which time Scott drowned. Many believe he could have been saved if emergency services arrived sooner.

It was later determined that Goodman’s BAC was twice the legal alcohol limit, and if convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison for the crime.

Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers has suffered another relapse, according to reports. The baseball star, an alcohol and drug addict, apparently fell off the wagon again.

According to the Dallas Morning News, citing individuals familiar with the episode, Hamilton drank alcohol Monday night at Sherlock's Pub & Grill in Dallas.

Hamilton's teammate Ian Kinsler also showed up for what appeared to be an attempt to persuade the outfielder to call it a night and return home.

J. Hamilton

A ballplayer drinking in a bar in the offseason would normally be a non-story, obviously, but given Josh Hamilton's history of abuse, and how outspoken he's been about falling victim to, and later avoiding drugs and alcohol, it's anything but.

This was Hamilton's second alcohol-related relapse in three years.

In January 2009, he drank to excess in a bar in Tempe, Ariz. A day after the 2009 incident, Hamilton informed his family, the Rangers and Major League Baseball.

The four-time All-Star and 2010 MVP passed an immediate drug test and participated in an MLB-mandated counseling program. The Rangers took no punitive measures.

Taran Noah Smith, one of Tim Allen's kids on Home Improvement, was arrested early this morning for alleged DUI and drug possession, according to TMZ.

Hashish, to be specific. Or hash as the kids call it.

The now-27-year-old Smith was arrested in L.A. County around 1:00 a.m., and police believe he was under the influence of marijuana at the time of his arrest.

An alleged stash of hash (a type of weed) was found.

Smith, best known for his role as little Mark Taylor, is still in custody and was booked for the DUI and the drug possession, which is a felony. Not good.

He was allegedly behind the wheel of his '98 silver Honda Accord, which was parked at an angle in front of a fire hydrant when an officer investigated.

The police officer smelled a "strong odor" of weed and believed Smith was under the influence. He was brought in and booked shortly thereafter.

Wanna watch the official music video for Nicki Minaj's latest track, "Stupid Hoe?" You better scroll down and press Play.

Because you won't find it on BET.

That network has banned the video, sources confirm to TMZ, and although no statement has been released regarding the decision, it's clearly based on the explicit nature of both the video (which features Minaj dancing in a cage and wearing a thong, along with other nearly-naked women and a monkey) and the lyrics themselves.

Which repeat the words "stupid hoe" about 10 times per chorus.

Check out the controversial video now and then vote in our poll.

Should BET ban this video?

Flavor Flav says his daughter, Dazayna Drayton, is getting a bad rap after her arrest this weekend, claiming she didn't lay a hand on him ... which she is accused of.

The whole thing was just a family dispute that got out of hand, Flav says.

Flav claims he tried to stop the cops from arresting Dazayna, but Nevada's zero tolerance law requires police to book anyone who allegedly strikes a family member.

"The whole thing was a big misunderstanding that shouldn't have happened," he says. "No one in my family called the cops on my daughter; she did not beat me up."

Flavor Flav Time

Flav, whose word must be taken with a grain of salt, as he is insane, makes it clear, "I love my daughter and will never let anything happen that could come between us."

Dazayna Drayton was booked for misdemeanor battery Sunday.

It's unclear who called the cops, but someone did after Flav's 19-year-old girl got into an argument with one his stepsons, which eventually became physical.

Flav tried to break it up and got hit by his daughter for his troubles - either on purpose or by accident (he's clearly saying the latter) - and authorities found enough evidence of domestic violence to take her into custody afterward.

A.J. Lamas, reality show staple, son of Lorenzo Lamas and brother of fame whore Shayne Lamas, has been accused of terrorism by his former girlfriend.

Jessie Schulman filed legal documents asking for a restraining order, claiming that she recently broke up with A.J. Lamas and moved on to a new relationship.

That's when, allegedly, his reign of terror began.

A. J. Lamas

Jessie says on January 11 at 2 a.m., she was at home with her new BF when A.J. suddenly appeared outside her window. She says she yelled at him to leave.

Instead, he broke through the window screen and entered the house, yelling at Jessie and trying to lock the two of them in the bathroom ... for reasons unknown.

So he could have a captive audience to speak his mind? It's unclear, but Jessie says she talked him into leaving ... after he stole some liquor on the way out.

Jessie says she talked him into leaving the house, but before he made his exit he made a pit stop at the fridge and grabbed a bottle of liquor. Classy.

It's not known if the restraining order has been granted.

That douche The Unit from Jersey Shore claims there is no way he was in possession of a powerful horse tranquilizer when he was arrested in N.J. last year.

Yes, Unit got popped with horse tranquilizer in Seaside Heights.

The Situation's boy, whose real name is John (or Jonny) Manfre, entered a not guilty plea to possession of a controlled substance stemming from the July bust.

The substance was determined to be Ketamine, a horse tranq.

The Unit

The Unit from Jersey Shore does his thing. The girl's face sums it up.

After the hearing, Unit's lawyer Raymond Raya offered TMZ a classic non-explanation: "There were some issues regarding my client's constitutional rights."

"We entered the not guilty plea NOT because that's the normal thing to do ... we've actually entered the not guilty plea because we believe John is not guilty."

He added, "We expect a very favorable outcome." Good to know. We don't expect Snooki's girl Ryder can say the same after she gets tested, however.

Sigh. The mom of young Isabella Barrett of Toddlers & Tiaras fame is suing the MEDIA for over-sexualizing her daughter ... by reporting on Isabella's "Sexy And I Know It" cover.

Susanna Barrett claims media outlets, in reporting that event, portrayed her five-year-old daughter in an "overly sexualized manner." Right. All the media's fault.

In court papers, Susanna claims Isabella "did not act or portray herself sexually, erotically or provocatively" and that coverage of her performance was unfair.'

"She was not 'gyrating' at a 'nightclub' or singing 'about her sex appeal," the elder Barrett claims incredulously. "On the contrary, it is the defendants who, through their articles ... thrust these false and vulgar characteristics on to Isabella."

Yes, this is a real story. The delusional mother seems to see nothing wrong with having her daughter sing a sexually-themed LMFAO song.

The media talking about it though? Shame.

Thanks to TMZ, The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail and other celebrity news sources, “Isabella is now perceived sexually, erotically and pornographically."

Suing for $30 million, Barrett adds, "[The articles] place Isabella in physical danger, attracting the attention of others who would seek to sexualize a child.”

Well, on those grounds, can someone sue her for $30 million too then?

Former So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Alex Da Silva has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a former dance student, reports say.

Da Silva was arrested back in 2009 for a whole host of felonies.

The 43-year-old was charged with sexually assaulting four women, all former dance students of his between the ages of 20 and 26 at the time. Sick.

Da Silva was convicted of one count of rape and one count of assault with intent to rape. The jury deadlocked on the other charges, which were dismissed.

Da Silva appeared on Seasons 1-4 of SYTYCD (above, mentoring now-DWTS pro Chelsie Hightower). He was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Fellow one-time SYTYCD mainstay Shane Sparks was also charged with a sex offense recently, pleading guilty to unlawful sex with a minor.
