In shocking news, Lamar Odom of Keeping Up With the Kardashians has reportedly checked himself into rehab. Khloe and Lamar are just finalizing their divorce, and it looks like he is ready to get his act together. Us Magazine shared the details about what is going on with Lamar now. Lamar actually checked himself into rehab at a facility near San Diego, California.
A source is speaking out and says that Lamar made this decision on his own. The source said, “He went to continue making sure he stays sober and on the right path. It was something he chose to do.”
The insider went on to say that Lamar “did it for his kids” and “also wanted to feel 100 percent again. He did not relapse, but felt like he wanted to get away and start fresh for the New Year.” It really does sound like this was an important decision for Lamar.
Lamar Odom went to rehab last year as well after he was found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel. When this happened, Lamar was fighting for his life, and Khloe called off their divorce so that she could be the one making decision for him and helping him through this hard time. At one point, it didn’t look like Lamar would even make it or if he did that he wouldn’t be able to walk again. Things have really improved for him over the year. Lamar went from thinking he might not survive to being able to play basketball again.
E! News was the first to report that Lamar Odom was back in rehab and they shared a few details. Lamar’s rep could not be reached and the last time that he was seen out in public was December 6. A while back, rumors were flying that Lamar was homeless, but a source said that wasn’t the case at all. This source said, “Lamar’s not homeless. He has a nice place in California. He is doing well. He is determined to stay on the straight and narrow [path] and wants to be the best father he can possibly be, and he is doing the work required to achieve that.” It is great that Lamar is focusing on himself and his children. Hopefully he will get what he wants out of this time in rehab.
