Pitino tells cops he paid for abortion

Rick Pitino (born September 18, 1952(1952-09-18)) is an American basketball coach. Since 2001 he has been the head coach at the University of Louisville. He has also served as head coach at Boston University, Providence College and the University of Kentucky, leading that program to the NCAA championship in 1996. He has coached on the professional level for the NBA's New York Knicks and Boston Celtics with mixed results.

Pitino holds the distinction of being the only men's coach in NCAA history to lead three different schools (Providence, Kentucky, and Louisville) to the Final Four. In addition, Pitino has achieved a measure of success as an author and a motivational speaker.

Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino told police he had sex in a restaurant six years ago with a woman now accused of trying to extort millions of dollars from him. And when she told him two weeks later she was pregnant, he gave her $3,000 for an abortion.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville reported on its Web site Tuesday that Pitino told police he had been drinking in a Louisville restaurant and had consensual sex with Karen Sypher in August 2003. The police report said the 56-year-old coach denied Sypher’s allegations that he raped her after the restaurant closed and at another time somewhere else.

Sypher reported the rape allegations to police last month, but a Kentucky prosecutor said the complaint wouldn’t be prosecuted because it lacked supporting evidence. Sypher, 49, has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of lying to the FBI and trying to extort $10 million from Pitino, who is married.

Sypher told police she met Pitino at the restaurant and asked him to speak to her sons on the phone, which he did. She said the place’s owner gave Pitino the keys at the end of the night and asked him to lock up when he left. She claimed Pitino then forced himself on her.

University sports information director Kenny Klein said the coach was in his office on Tuesday but directed all inquires to Pence. Pitino finished his eighth season with the Cardinals, leading them to a 31-6 record and the Big East regular-season and tournament titles. The Cardinals lost to Michigan State in the regional finals of the NCAA tournament.

School president James Ramsey said his thoughts were with Pitino and his family. Pitino and his wife Joanne have five children, including son Richard, an assistant who left the program after last season to join Billy Donovan’s staff at Florida.

“Several months ago, Coach Pitino informed me about the alleged extortion attempt. I’ve now been informed that there may be other details which, if true, I find surprising,” Ramsey said in a statement.

Pitino is Catholic and brings along close friend and spiritual adviser, the Rev. Edward Bradley—a priest in Henderson, Ky.—on many team trips. Bradley often prays with the team before games and is a fixture near the Louisville bench.

There was no answer late Tuesday at the priest’s office where he also lives.

Neither Sypher nor her attorney, James Earhart, immediately returned calls from the AP seeking comment. Earhart told The Courier-Journal he hadn’t received the records and couldn’t comment.

Sypher is married to the team’s equipment manager, Tim Sypher, but divorce papers were recently filed. Tim Sypher was Pitino’s personal assistant with the Boston Celtics from 1997-2001, then followed the coach to Louisville in 2001.

The criminal complaint said Tim Sypher brought Pitino a written list of demands from his wife, including college tuition for her children, two cars, money to pay off her house and $3,000 per month. The demands later escalated, the complaint said. Tim Sypher has not been charged.

Besides Louisville and the Celtics, Pitino coached the New York Knicks from 1987 to 1989. His ties to the Bluegrass State are strong. He was at Kentucky from 1989 to 1997, where he earned one national championship and two other trips to the Final Four.

About two weeks after meeting Sypher at the restaurant, Pitino told police she called, told him she was pregnant and he had to be the father. Pitino told her when they met again that he had five children and she had four, and that he didn’t know what he wanted to do, according to the report by Sgt. Andy Abbott, commander of the sex-offense unit.

Pitino said Sypher told him she was going to have an abortion but didn’t have health insurance, so he gave her $3,000 for the procedure done in Cincinnati, according to the report.

Pitino’s lawyer, Steve Pence, said the story is about Sypher and not his client.

“Karen Sypher is indicted for extortion,” Pence told The Associated Press. “The commonwealth’s attorney has said she is void of any credibility on these 6-year-old allegations she has made.”

Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich said in a statement that “Coach Pitino has been truthful with us about this matter all along and we stand by him and his family during this process.”

The newspaper cited Louisville Metro Police reports that it obtained under the Kentucky Open Records Act. Police spokesman Sgt. Robert Biven said the records couldn’t immediately be released to the AP on Tuesday because the office that prepares them was closed for the day.

Abbott asked Sypher during one interview why she waited until after she was indicted to report the rape allegations.

She gave varying answers, according to transcripts, saying she wanted to forget about it, that Pitino threatened her and finally that “they kept throwing crumbs to keep me happy.”

Abbott asked Sypher why she was coming forward only after she was charged.

“Because … where we are, it seems like retaliation,” Abbott said.

“I know it does,” Sypher responded.

The case became public in April when Pitino announced that someone had tried to extort him. Pitino said he reported it to the FBI, and Sypher surrendered to authorities a few days later when she was named in a criminal complaint. At the time, several media outlets declined to air interviews with Sypher about allegations against Pitino, saying they were personal and unsubstantiated.

Erin Andrews has managed to hit the Paris Hilton syndrome on internet and because of the Hotel Peephole Video Tape she has managed to get herself even more into the national subconsciousness or perhaps the age group that matters more – 18 to 35.

Erin Andrews Peephole Video Story Background

So apparently Erin Andrews was staying in some hotel and some dude (most likely) peeped through a peephole and made a video recording of Erin Andrews using her curling iron to fix her hair.

Its a boring video by any standards. I have been told the resolution is very poor, it could be any blonde out there, and it is as interesting as watching paint dry.

But the effect on Erin Andrews so far has been phenomenal. She is hogging all this publicity without spending any dime. And lets face it, for a celebrity any publicity is good.

Because of this peeping tom leaked video tape, even the folks who had no interest or clue on who Erin Andrews was, want to check it out.

The fact that Erin had her lawyer issue a statement further added fuel to the publicity and was not short of an acknowledgment that the video is indeed of her.

Megan Fox - have desirable body??

Megan Denise Fox (born May 16, 1986) is an American actress and model.

After a successful career as a model, Fox launched her acting career in 2001 with a supporting role as Brianna Wallace in Holiday in the Sun, starring opposite Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen. Fox then guest-starred in various television series, including What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men, The Help, and Ocean Ave. She also played a recurring role as Sydney Shanowski on Hope and Faith.

Megan Fox has the most enviable body of all female celebrities, according to a magazine poll.

The Transformers star, whose curves have been known to reduce boys and girls to actual tears, topped Heat magazine’s Body Envy 2009 survey, followed by an almost-as-fit Cheryl Cole at number two.

"We've always known that Megan Fox is a hit with men,” said Heat editor Julian Linley, “but we were surprised at how quickly she has made an impact on women - they consider her to have the most covetable celebrity body."

In another, equally interesting, part of the survey, readers voted on the “perfect body” made up of various celebrity body parts – kind of like Fantasy Football but with limbs and boobs instead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The winning combination was made up of Megan Fox’s face, Jennifer Aniston's arms, Angelina Jolie's breasts, Beyoncé curves and Kelly Brook's legs

People like but Megan Fox don't !! Why?

WHILE most blokes I know could happily spend hours staring at MEGAN FOX, the actress hates watching herself on screen.

The Transformers star has revealed she dislikes viewings and avoids checking out her own performance.

Megan - who spent the weekend househunting in Santa Monica with on/off boyfriend, actor BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN - admitted: "I usually don't watch myself. I don't watch playback. I don't look at still photos. I have a phobia of it.

"But, I forced myself to sit down for Transformers 2. I shot an entire glass of champagne, so that I could get through it."

You weren't the only one...

One star who clearly loves checking out his own work is GEORGE MICHAEL. In fact, the singer enjoys his own hits so much he's put in requests at his local.

George has become a regular at San Carlo restaurant and bar in north London and asks staff to put on one of his albums while he's chowing down on pasta.

A source tells me: "George is a regular at San Carlo. Several celebs eat there but George is the first to ask for his own music."

George's pal STEPHEN GATELY is known to pop in for a spag bol from time to time too.

I wonder if fellow diners will soon be forced to listen to BOYZONE?

And according to a new poll, Megan Fox has the body most envied by women!!

The Transformers actress, who is praised for her classic hourglass figure, has been voted No 1 in Heat magazine's Body Envy Survey 2009.

But despite having the most desired body, Megan apparently has a phobia of looking at herself, telling "I usually don't watch myself, I don't watch playback, I don't look at still photos, I have a phobia of it."

She added: "But I forced myself to sit down for Transformers 2. I basically shot an entire glass of champagne so that I could get through the sitting of it."

Girls Aloud's Cheryl Cole came second in Heat's Body Envy Survey, followed by curvy Kelly Brook in third place and bootylicious Beyonce in fourth place.

Angelina Jolie was voted fifth, just ahead of Brad Pitt's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Jessica Alba was placed seventh in the poll, Jennifer Lopez was eighth and Katie Price, aka Jordan, was considered to have the ninth most enviable body.

Rihanna rounded of the top ten list.

Heat editor Julian Linley said: "It's really refreshing to see Cheryl Cole beating curvy bikini goddess Kelly Brook to second place, and for the Brits to make the top ten, alongside Jennifer, Angelina, Beyonce and co."
