Finally, finally, Lamar Odom is doing what he should have ages ago and seeking help for his drug and alcohol problems. The athlete and Keeping Up With The Kardashians hubby recently entered a rehab facility in hopes of putting his current issues behind him for good.
For the past few months, Lamar Odom’s life has been spiraling out of control, what with the repeated cheating allegations, not to mention rumors of illicit drug use. And then, to add insult to injury, the athlete found himself slapped with a DUI last week.
Of course, all this has taken a devastating toll on Khloe Kardashian, Lamar’s wife and sole support through the entire ordeal. Having earlier expressed a desire to save his marraige, Lamar appears to finally making good on his promise. He cannot save his relationship with Khloe until he straightens out his own life, so off to rehab it is!
As is often the case, the hardest part for Lamar was letting go of any illusions suggesting that he was in control. Clearly, recent incidents suggest otherwise, but until now, the basketball player has successfully utilized the traditional addict tactic of deny, deny, deny. But a source close to the famous couple says that this period of denial has finally drawn to a close. “[Lamar] realized he needs help.”
Now, the person trapped in the denial stage is Khloe, who continues to keep quiet about her marital difficulties. Instead, she’s pointed the finger back at those making accusation after accusation against her husband. Last week, the reality star tweeted, “Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk shit about my family!”
Will Khloe still be able to accuse people of “talking shit” now that Lamar is charged with a DUI and sitting in rehab? Or do expect the star to continue to dodge questions about her husband? Sound off in the comments section below!
