Rodney King to marry juror from trial

Rodney King, who is 44 now, is set to marry "Juror number 5" from his civil case against the city of Los Angeles over the infamous beating he took from the LAPD along Foothill Boulevard in 1991. They met for their first date the day after the trial "when Rodney's lawyer and Rodney met me in a local pizzeria in Newport Beach," Cynthia Kelley told RadarOnline. The site says the pair separated during King's stay on VH1's "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" and didn't reunite until four months ago, when he telephoned to ask if his former flame was still single.
