Her boyfriend, Cort Colon, 25, father of her infant son,....told officers Katelyn, who had been drinking wine and had taken a "half bag of cocaine," began complaining of chest pains and shortness of breath after they went to bed at 3am. At 6am, he feared she had "overdosed" but didn't "call police in fear they would lose their child," says the police report. He called his mom Ivy Dennis and when she arrived at 7am she called 911. Officers were finally able to bring Katelyn around enough to say her name after giving her a sternum rub. She was "holding her head with her hair covering her face" as she was taken to the ambulance, say sources.We hear you asking: Who the hell cares? We don't either. But, we're in the middle of a slow news cycle (read: summer), so indulge us. With that said, child welfare swooped down on Katelyn -- who's done time in rehab before -- and Cort's home and are considering removing the baby from their care.

Kobe Bryant Accuser Suffers Drug Overdose
Eight years before he was accused of assaulting a man at church, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant was at the center of a major sexual assault case. Katelyn Faber, who was the receptionist at the Lodge and Spa at Cordillera in Colorado, claimed the NBA baller, who was staying at the resort, raped her in his hotel room on July 1, 2003. (Here's the back story: Kobe admitted to sleeping with Katelyn, but maintained that it was consensual. The case was dropped after Katelyn refused to testify. She then filed a civil suit demanding at least $75,000 in damages. The suit was settled out of court. A key stipulation in the settlement called for Kobe to publicly apologize to Katelyn. Which he did.) Now that you're caught up, the folks over at The Globe got their hands on a police report that says Katelyn, who's now 27 and has a 3-month-old son, was rushed to a hospital near her Parker, Colo. home after overdosing on cocaine on July 16.
