According to People.com Lamar Odom has checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. This is a good idea because Lamar truly needs help. I hope everything works out for him.
“He realized he needs help,” a source says of the NBA free agent and husband of reality star Khloé Kardashian Odom. Odom’s drug use had been causing trouble in the couple’s marriage, though Kardashian has been focused on getting her husband help.
The basketball player, 32, has admitted to drug use in the past. He violated NBA drug policies twice in eight months back in 2001, and spoke in 2003 of his marijuana use. “I just couldn’t control myself in L.A. … the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to,” he said. Odom’s father struggled with heroin addiction, and Odom once wondered if he was “fighting my father’s demons.”
