Following the pleading & genuine concern for his well-being from his wife and family, Lamar Odom has at last checked himself into a rehab facility for drug and alcohol abuse according to sources from People magazine.
“He realized he needs help,” a source says of the NBA free agent and husband of reality star Khloé Kardashian-Odom.
This follows a series of troubling reports about Odom, who was first rumored to be doing hard drugs like crack, and reported missing. Khloe Kardashian came out and said he was not missing and was safe with family, but sources said he was indeed using drugs.
Then some sleuthing revealed that he had been doing drugs while travelling with teams for away games the past couple years, and a drug dealer even claimed that LO had purchased some $50,000 worth of product off him the past few years.
It all culminated in Lamar being pulled over last week when he was driving too slow on a highway, and was found to be under the influence. Now, possibly to appease the court in an attempt at a less harsher sentence, he has checked himself into rehab.
Regardless of the reason, it’s good to see he’s taking the steps necessaryis safe for now, and hopefully he can dedicate himself to cleaning up, and possibly returning to the league.
*UPDATE* According to TMZ reporters, Lamar has NOT checked himself into any rehab facility, and instead has run away from his wife, Khloe, & the rest of the family.
It was reported that Lamar checked himself into a secluded rehabilitation center without Khloe even knowing. Khloe has been begging Lamar to seek help, as she does WILL end their marriage if he does not get it together.
Lamar has completely gone off the grid. Not even his wife has heard from. SMH.
