Lamar Odom was recently arrested for DUI, following rumors that he has been heavily involved in drugs, and allegations that he has been cheating on Khloe Kardashian. And just when we thought that Kris Jenner was ready to boot him out of the family, she has actually come to his rescue! That’s right, the Kardashian star recently hired high profile attorney, Robert Shapiro to take on Lamar’s case, but it may not be for the reason you’re thinking!
With all the negative publicity surrounding Lamar Odom lately, it didn’t come as a shock to fans when rumors began to surface that Kris Jenner wanted him out of the family. But now it seems that is not the case at all.
According to TMZ, Kris Jenner has come to Lamar Odom’s rescue and hired Robert Shapiro, the same attorney who represented O.J. Simpson along with her ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, to represent him. However, Jenner is not just trying to clear Lamar’s name in order to get him out of the family. Instead, Jenner wants Odom to get help for his addiction.
The truth is that Shapiro lost his 24-year-old son to a drug overdose back in 2005, and he has been involved with drug addiction foundations and charities ever since. Apparently, Jenner wants Shapiro to attempt to talk some sense into Lamar, in hopes that he will get treatment for his addiction. According to the site, Shapiro has only agreed to represent Odom if he is open to treatment. Hmm, we wonder if Shapiro can be the voice of reason?
What do you think of Lamar Odom’s drug addiction? Do you think Robert Shapiro can talk some sense into Lamar? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear from you. Comment below to share your thoughts with us!
