LOS ANGELES - Former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya has announced that he will be entering The Henry & Betty Ford Clinic.
The boxer who won world titles in six different weight classes told Rufus Reno with Sports Balls Illustrated Daily that he hopes to cure an addiction which he says is very unusual and embarrassing.
The fighter known as Golden Boy said he first developed an affliction for wearing female fishnet stockings when he was dating a gorgeous model, Courtney Caffaletti, 24, who modeled women's lingerie.
He said that one night after the two had been out drinking heavily at The Tipsy Tadpole Lounge in West Hollywood they returned to her apartment.
She put on some sexy music and some sexy fishnet stockings and the couple started dancing the salsa.
De La Hoya told Reno that one thing led to another and before he knew it he was standing in her bedroom wearing a pair of Courtney's fishnet stockings.
He said that at first he kind of felt a little strange and rather gayish but as the night went on and Courtney began complimenting him on having a great looking pair of legs he kind of liked it.
SIDENOTE: Oscar said that he tried to stop his new found fishnet stocking fetish but found it difficult to do because Courtney kept insisting that in her eyes it made him look more macho.
