After a reported two-year struggle with addiction, Lamar Odom has checked into rehab. Sources say after the NBA star got a DUI last Friday, he checked into a drug and alcohol rehab center.
Odom’s problems have been a subject of discussion in the media, starting with reports that he and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, were having issues and might be separated. Two women came forward to say he had cheated on Kardashian with them, but that was just the start.
It was then reported that Odom was missing, but his rep quickly denied that. Reports then came out saying he was addicted to crack cocaine, and his alleged drug dealer even spoke out, saying he has spent roughly $50,000 in the past few years on drugs. He then got arrested for DUI, and that could’ve been what made him agree to go to treatment.
TMZ reports he will get his license suspended for a year because he refused to submit a blood-alcohol test.
Although the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star hasn’t addressed Odom’s drug issues publicly, sources say they’ve really been weighing on their nearly four-year marriage.
"The addiction had taken over their marriage," a source told Us Weekly. "The problem is cocaine. He would be high for three or four days at a time."
On Sept. 1, Kardashian tweeted:
As much as I wish I were made of steel... I'm not
