According to People.com Lamar Odom has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, two sources confirm to PEOPLE.
A source says,
“He realized he needs help.”
After Lamar received a DUI last week, Khloe allegedly gave him an ultimatum and basically said either get clean or get out.
Lamar, 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 saying,
“I just couldn’t control myself in L.A. the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to.”
Odom’s father reportedly had his own problems with heroin addiction, and Lamar allegedly wondered out loud if he was,
“Fighting my father’s demons.”
We truly hope that if this is an accurate story and Lamar has gone to rehab that he is able to get that monkey off his back and fight it off forever. We’re pulling for you buddy. Get well soon.
