Before Demetrius Bell was drafted in the seventh round by the Buffalo Bills, his closest tie to the world of professional sports was through his absentee father, legendary Jazz forward Karl Malone. They didn't meet until Bell was 18, when Malone told him "it was too late to be his father, and that Bell would have to 'earn his money on his own.'"
And then there's this nugget from Allan Wilson of the Buffalo News:
[Demetrius's] mother, Gloria Bell, reportedly was only 13 years old and Malone a college sophomore at Louisiana Tech when Demetrius was born. Malone might have served jail time had her family asked the district attorney to file criminal charges.
Hold on, hold on, I'm using my calculator. 13 years, minus nine months of pregnancy, carry the one… Wow. If Wilson's claim is correct, then there's a 75% chance that Karl Malone slept with a 12-year-old when he was in college. And a 100% chance he's a child molester. Dude, even in Louisiana, 13-year-old girls are still just kids. They don't blossom into sex objects until at least 14.
