Hollywood Reporter: ESPN Suspends Host for Domestic Abuse Story

The sports network has suspended host Max Kellerman after he admitted Monday on ESPN-LA Radio show Mason & Ireland that he hit his then-girlfriend, Erin, several years ago. Max and Erin have now been married for 20 years.

“Max Kellerman will return to ESPNLA Radio and SportsNation on Thursday,” ESPN said in a statement released to The Hollywood Reporter.

Max explained in the story that he and Erin were at a college party and were drunk at the time. Max said that Erin slapped him, and so he slapped her back.

Wait, what? Max has been married to Erin for 20 years but “he hit his then-girlfriend ... several years ago?”
