ESPN Host Max Kellerman Suspended for Domestic Abuse Story

ESPN has issued its third suspension in two weeks.

ESPN TV and radio host Max Kellerman has been suspended until Thursday following his admission on ESPN-LA radio show “Mason & Ireland” that he once hit his then girlfriend and now wife of 20 years, Erin.

“Max Kellerman will return to ESPNLA Radio and SportsNation on Thursday,” the sports network said in a statement.

Kellerman explained that the incident in question happened years ago while the couple was at a college party and both had too much to drink. Kellerman said that while he was trying to get things under control, his girlfriend slapped him, and he slapped her back.

The conversation was reportedly posted online as an ESPN podcast, but has since been removed.

Just late last month, ESPN doled out a highly-publicized suspension to Stephen A. Smith for controversial remarks he made regarding domestic violence while talking about Ray Rice. Dan Le Batard also received a suspension recently for a billboard mocking LeBron James.
