PGA Tour star Dustin Johnson announced a leave of absence from golf this week, citing personal problems. Right on cue came reports of multiple failed drug tests.

Johnson, who is engaged to Paulina Gretzky, issued a statement saying he is "taking a leave of absence from professional golf, effective immediately.”

“I will use this time to seek professional help for personal challenges I have faced."

The 30-year-old says he will focus on “committing the time and resources necessary to improve my mental health, physical well-being and emotional foundation."

In doing so, in an undetermined time frame, "I am confident I will be better equipped to fulfill my potential and become a consistent champion.”

It appears there's more to this than this vague explanation suggests, however.

Retired NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, rapper Waka Flocka Flame and current NBA player Trey Burke are being sued by a man for mocking his appearance online.

Jahmel Binion suffers from a disorder called hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, which causes limited hair growth, missing teeth, and facial deformities.

He posted a selfie on Instagram back in April, after which Shaq and Waka both reposted it with captions that were clearly making fun of his physical appearance.

How he's suing the trio, along with Burke, for bullying him, essentially.

Once Shaq found out about Jahmel's condition, he not only took down the post, he got in touch with Jahmel and apologized, according to reports.

He tweeted about that conversation: "Made a new friend today when I called and apologized to Jahmel Binion. Great dude. #alwayslearning #MYBADCUZ."

It wasn't enough for Jahmel, who filed a defamation suit against Shaq, Waka and Burke, who allegedly threw in his own insults over social media.

Kate Upton gave Justin Verlander puppy dog eyes in a recent pic, but even that wasn't enough to convince him to adopt the puppy seen with her in it.

On Tuesday, the supermodel Instagrammed a photo of herself with an adorable dog and tagged her athlete boyfriend, writing, "Pleaseeeee @justinverlander."

Kate Upton, Doggy Style!

The Detroit Tigers' pitching ace responded by Instagramming a picture of his current mutt, writing: "@kateupton If anyone objects raise your hand!"

"#RileyObjects #jealous #RileyWins."

Riley was indeed raising a paw.

The 31-year-old baseball star and his ex-girlfriend Emily Yuen adopted "the coolest dog ever" when they were in college. He recalled a few years later:

Kate Middleton loves her Stuart Weitzman "Corkswoon" wedges, and the Duchess has proven the footwear is not a hindrance to athletic activity.

We've seen her play volleyball in them before, and this week, Kate showed us that she can dominate at three tins while rocking the sky-high shoes.

While looking amazing, as evidenced by this awesome GIF:

Perhaps this will put an end to the incessant Kate Middleton pregnant talk?

Probably not for more than a week or two, but still. She's not, people!

In a cerulean Stella McCartney dress with her favorite navy blazer, Prince William's wife was a hit at a reception in Glasgow, Scotland at the Commonwealth Games.

The traditional game involves knocking down three tins with a ball, running into the middle of the square, rebuilding them, and hopping over the tins three times.

Middleton's husband William and her brother-in-law Prince Harry later tackled the same game against one another, but Kate stole the show as always.

Stephen A. Smith has been suspended for a week by ESPN.

The blowhard of a commentator made headlines last week during the show First Take when asked about Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.

The former All-Pro got suspended himself for two games by the NFL after being caught on surveillance camera dragging his unconscious girlfriend out of a hotel elevator, with many taking the league to task for being too lenient on Rice.

Smith said any kind of physical violence against women is wrong, but qualified his statement by saying females need to make sure they do not "provoke wrong actions" by their male counterparts.

We really didn't think it could get any worse than this woman Twerking on this man's gigantic belly during a music festival in Ohio last week.

Then again... we really thought the Denver Broncos would beat the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII as well.

A disturbing video has surfaced in which Peyton Manning proves that he's as terrible at dancing as he is terrific at playing quarterback, moving and shaking like your drunk uncle at a wedding during the playing of "Rocky Top" during practice.

As a University of Tennessee alum, we know it's a requirement for Manning to break into dance upon hearing this tune.

But couldn't he take a few lessons from Wes Welker?

Motherhood looks good on Kristin Cavallari. The Hills star ran errands in L.A. this week, showing off her impressively slim physique just two months after giving birth:

  • Kristin Post-Baby
  • Kristin Working Out

The Hills alum, 27, who welcomed son Jaxon in May with her husband, NFL quarterback Jay Cutler. The duo's older son Camden is almost two.

Kristin Cavallari's tiny waist and toned arms result from her commitment to the gym, as witnessed throughout her second pregnancy and after Jaxon's arrival.

She recently shared a mirror selfie of herself on Instagram, writing "Tired today..blah. At least l managed to do some legs and butt with ankle weights."

Whatever she's doing is clearly working wonders.

The designer, who came under fire earlier this year for her anti-vaccination beliefs, and her family are currently on the West Coast ahead of the NFL season.

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz makes big plays on the gridiron all the time, but this off-field move will go down as his all-time best.

At their church in New Jersey on July 13, the NFL all-star and his longtime girlfriend were hosting a "baby dedication" for their young daughter Kennedy.

Victor was leading a prayer for friends and family before the group ate ... when he got down on one knee and pulling out a huge diamond ring for Elaina!

Watch the clip, first posted by TMZ Sports, below and prepare to tear up a bit ...

She said yes, and the crowd celebrated like the Giants won Super Bowl XLVI!

(Which they did, over the Patriots. It was awesome. Cruz scored a TD.)

It will be the first marriage for Victor and Elaina, who have known each other since 2003, when the two were just high school kids in the Garden State.

Good luck topping this celebration on the football field this fall, player.

Check out many more memorable marriage proposals below:

Justin Bieber has taken a break from hanging with supermodels to chill with an NBA superstar.

In a photo posted Tuesday to Instagram, the singer says he's having "Brunch" with Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, not specifying whether the two planned their meal together or simply bumped into each other.

Bieber, of course, is a decent baller himself.

He was named MVP of the 2011 Celebrity All-Star game and has been known to play pick-up during breaks from music video shooting.
