Khloe Kardashian-Odom’s momager Kris Jenner is the driving force behind Lamar Odom’s decision to hire on Robert Shapiro to handle his recent DUI case.
Odom declined to submit to a blood-alcohol test and therefore faces losing his driver’s license as well as picking up community service and alcohol education classes.
According to TMZ, Jenner pulled for Odom to hire on Shapiro not for his law skills, but because he too understands the effects that drug addiction can have on one’s family.
Shapiro’s family suffered a tragedy in 2005 when his son Brent died of a drug overdose. Jenner hopes that Shapiro will not only help Odom through his legal issues but through his struggles with drug addiction as well. Shapiro agreed to represent Odom on the grounds that he is open to hear about different treatment possibilities.
