It’s so sad that Lamar Odom is still battling his addictions but this time it’s actually a good thing that he is being proactive in checking himself into rehab.
Lamar Odom checked himself into rehab out of fear he’d go on a major bender as his deceased son’s birthday approached …
Lamar’s son, Jayden, was born Dec 15, 2005, but died the following June from SIDS. We’re told his son’s death was the primary reason he started doing hardcore drugs … and he was keenly aware the birthday might push him over the edge again.
As we reported, our Lamar sources say he went to a San Diego area facility late last week.
We’re told Lamar’s also struggling with the fact his divorce from Khloe will be final on Saturday, and he didn’t want to be tempted to use.
