Dennis Rodman's ex is taking him to the HOLE ... or something.

The NBA Hall of Fame member just learned a hard lesson about not paying child support: You have to do so legally or a judge can punish you.

Rodman was just held in contempt for raking up a whopping $808,935 in unpaid child support for his 9- and 10-year-old children, reports say.

He owes an additional $51,441 in unpaid spousal support, too.

Rodman was placed on probation for three years and ordered to perform 104 hours of community service as a result of the Orange County judge's ruling.

While he's on probation, Rodman is required to stay current with child support and cover alimony. Given his financial situation, that could be tough.

Dennis claims he's broke, in fact, which doesn't help matters.

According to Dennis, Michelle's six-figure bill is based on a $50,000-a-month order she obtained behind his back - and which he's fought since 2010.

When U.S. Olympian Lolo Jones' virginity became the subject of a recent story on HBO's Real Sports, she was instantly linked to NFL star Tim Tebow.

Not negatively, just because of the obvious.

Both are high-profile, good-looking athletes who are in the minority in saving themselves for marriage. They should date, right? A lot of people think so ...

Amazingly, when Tebow entered the New York Jets locker room last week, several of his fellow players immediately started chanting, "Lo-lo! Lo-lo!"

A dedicated Twitter user, Lolo Jones was among the many people who saw the New York Daily News' report on this and responded immediately:

Lolo tweet

Some memorable lyrics to that song:

"I've been alone with you / Inside my mind / And in my dreams I've kissed your lips / A thousand times / I sometimes see you / Pass outside my door."

"Hello! Is it me you're looking for?"

Right?! The 29-year-old Lolo Jones, who is of mixed-racial descent, then followed up with a second Tweet about her fellow athletic virgin:

Lolo Tweet 2

Hmm. Well, there you go. If Tebow does in fact enjoy chocolate milk, perhaps a phone call after the summer Olympics is in order ...

Boxer Paul Williams has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident near Atlanta, the fighter's promoter said, and is currently paralyzed from the waist down.

The 30-year-old Williams, who was set to fight world champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, on Sept. 15 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, cannot feel his legs.

Dan Goossen, his promoter, added that the left-handed fighter is scheduled to undergo surgery at an unidentified hospital. Williams resides in Aiken, S.C.

P. Williams

Goossen said he was told by Williams' manager and trainer that Williams swerved to avoid contact with a vehicle Sunday and lost control of his motorcycle.

"Riding a motorcycle can be treacherous," Goossen said of the tragedy. "I'm told Paul is in remarkably good spirits considering what has happened."

Asked if Goossen has been told Williams will never fight again, the promoter said, "Our thoughts aren't there right now. He's undergoing this procedure."

"We're hoping he can get back on his feet after that. That's all we're hoping for."

An Augusta, Ga., TV station, WRDW, reports that the boxer's surgery will aim to stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it.

The 6'1" Williams (41-2, 27 knockouts) defined himself as an active punching southpaw who could fight anywhere between welterweight and middleweight.

Here's wishing him the most complete and prompt recovery possible.

Metta World Peace, the slightly-unhinged NBA player formerly known as Ron Artest, fired off what was clearly the best Memorial Day tweet ever yesterday:

Metta Tweet

Minutes later, he deleted this and replaced it with, "Happy memorial day ... I was still sleep :))) Bout to fire up the grill.. Shout out to the veterans!!!!!!!!!"

Hours later, with people still giving him a hard time, he wrote:

"Hey, it's not Labor Day... Enough... I partied like three rockstars yesterday.... Woke so twisted I thought I was labor day...Mistake.move on."

The coolest thing about all this? Metta spent the next few hours re-Tweeting messages from fans about what Memorial Day means to them.

Jenny McCarthy and Brian Urlacher, star of the NFL's Chicago Bears, are totally a couple, according to reports. Reports she confirmed this weekend.

The football great joined McCarthy Thursday night at Rockit Bar & Grill for the “Rescue Our Angels” event, benefiting Jenny’s autism charity.

Asked about Urlacher at The Generation Rescue Foundation event by WMAQ-Channel 5, Jenny McCarthy said, “Yes, it’s true, we are dating.”

Despite attempting to hit out-of-the-way meeting places, the couple hadn’t been able to hide their budding romance, try as they might.

“Let’s face it, it was really already out there, everybody knew it,” she said.

Also, the relationship apparently has reached a point where McCarthy feels it’s “the real deal and will last,” added a source close to her.

McCarthy clearly was not hiding anywhere or anything Friday. She joined about 30 close Urlacher friends to toast his 34th birthday.

Jenny, 39, recently announced that she'll be posing in Playboy again nearly two decades after it put her on the map.

Johnny Tapia, a five-time boxing champion whose turbulent career was marked by cocaine addiction, alcohol, depression and legal problems, has died.

He was 45. Authorities were called to his house in New Mexico at about 7:45 p.m. on Sunday. The death didn't appear to be suspicious, officials said.

Tapia won five titles in three weight classes, winning the WBA bantamweight title, the IBF and WBO junior bantamweight titles and the IBF featherweight belt.

Tapia

He was regarded as the consummate underdog by his fans. The more trouble he found outside the ring, which was often, the more they rallied around him.

His life was also marked by tragedy - he was orphaned at 8, after his mother stabbed 26 times with a screwdriver and left to die - throughout.

In 2007, he was hospitalized after an apparent cocaine overdose. Several days later, his brother-in-law and his nephew were killed in car accident.

Tapia was banned from boxing for 3 1/2 years in the early '90s because of his cocaine addiction, but returned to win five titles from 1994-2002.

He last fought in June, outpointing Mauricio Pastrana in an eight-round decision. He finished with a 59-5-2 record over a long, tough career. R.I.P.

New York Knicks player and possible Rihanna boyfriend J.R. Smith was busted in Miami Beach late Thursday. There was a bench warrant out for his arrest.

Miami Beach police said Smith was arrested on a bench warrant for not having a valid driver’s license after a routine traffic stop and search for his name.

Details were not immediately available on what led police to stop Smith about 8:30 p.m., but he joins our celebrity mug shots gallery with this one:

JR Smith Mug Shot

Hernandez said that J.R. (real name Earl Joseph Smith) was taken to the Miami-Dade County jail, where officials said he bonded out early Friday.

Smith has played seven years in the NBA and averages 12.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and at least two dozen ridiculous tattoos per game.

Yes, that's a Young Money logo on his neck. His neck.

L.A. Lakers fans Dan Rib and Ken Belcher rip Kobe Bryant for not being “The Kobe That We Used to Know” in this hilarious parody of Gotye's hit song.

Following the Lakers' unceremonious dismissal from the playoffs at the hands of Oklahoma City this week, the duo took out their frustration musically.

With references to the triangle offense, Bryant's maligned teammates, his running Shaq out of town after the 2004 season and, of course, Kobe's ball-hogging tendencies, the video set almost perfectly to Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" is classic:

If you thought you'd seen every ridiculous use of Twitter by now, we wouldn't blame you, but Buffalo Bills wide receiver David Clowney proved you wrong.

The NFL player just tweeted the results of his HIV test.

(It's negative).

"Got My HIV Results Back!! Thank God for keeping my body healthy," David wrote, before linking to the image below, just in case you doubted him:

Clowney HIV

This is really a non-story - Clowney is healthy and happy - but it's a great example of how Twitter has changed the relationship between sports stars and fans.

NBA legend Magic Johnson announcing he had HIV at a press conference 20 years ago was a shocking, watershed moment for the worlds of sports and media.

Nowadays, anyone can just Tweet this stuff.

The question we're all wondering: Would Clowney have tweeted the image above if the HIV test results were positive? You have to think no, right?

One point separated first-place Katherine Jenkins from William Levy and Donald Driver at the end of Monday's Dancing With the Stars performances.

Each finalist earned another 30 from one more routine on Tuesday's finale, but the votes were in, and that Mirror Ball already had one name on it.

That name was Donald Driver.

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd

The Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was named the winner of the 14th season, making pro Peta Murgatroyd a first-time champion.

"Amazing! This is awesome!" Donald said when asked how he felt. His competitors, not surprisingly, took their defeat in stride, and with class.

William and Cheryl Burke finished in third place. "It was an amazing experience," said the Cuban actor. "I thank you guys for all you have done for us."

"I'm going to miss all of you guys, I love you!"

Jenkins and Mark Ballas were the runners-up.

"Thank you so much, Mark, you've been... I can't put into words how much I've loved this," the ever-gracious Katherine Jenkins said in defeat.

"And thank you to everybody who's had me on the show. It's been an absolute dream, thank you." "Congratulations, my man," Mark Ballas said.

Driver's win makes eight for men in 14 seasons. Donald is also the third NFL pro to win after Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward, last season's champ.

What do you think? Did Donald deserve it?
