Lamar Odom's crack addiction has spanned more than two years and is believed to be the principal cause of his current relationship problems with wife Khloe Kardashian.
Last year Odom checked himself into a rehab facility but left after only three weeks of treatment. Sources at the facility verified the NBA all-star's addiction to crack.
An insider at TMZ claims Lamar's crack addition was extreme before he went into rehab. The source also says Lamar decided to take control of his addiction during the recently ended NBA season.
Khloe Kardashian reportedly attempted an intervention several days ago, but Lamar Odom was having none of it. After that failed attempt, Khloe kicked Lamar to the curb.
Lamar's reps are not commenting at this time. NBA officials have also remained mum on the situation.
The New York Daily News talked to a source who says Khloe Kardashian knows Lamar cheated on her but right now she's focused on his crack cocaine use. Khloe is said to believe that cocaine use and not other forces are leading to her husband's extremely sad behavior.
A source tells TMZ:
"Khloe is more concerned about saving Lamar than ending her marriage. The situation has become dire," the site states.Lamar Odom has not spoken publicly about claims of crack cocaine addiction and cheating.
Do you think Lamar Odom will get his act together or fail an NBA drug test and end up divorced and without a job?
