Looks like things might be turning around for troubled NBA player Lamar Odom, who is reportedly in talks with L.A. Lakers execs about returning to play for the team. TMZ is reporting that the estranged husband of Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian met with the basketball big shots Monday morning to discuss a possible deal, and the meeting went well.
Yesterday, Lamar hit up his barber Enzo for some pre-meeting grooming, and the hair stylist/head shaver shared some pics on Instagram of the basketballer’s freshly shaved head – complete with his trademark star on the back. Whether it was his newly shorn noggin that sealed the deal or some smooth talking, it will be kind of amazing if Lamar finds himself on the Lakers roster, considering his recent struggles.
As reported over the last several weeks, Khloe Kardashian’s man has been battling a serious drug addiction. He’s been caught smoking crack and using other drugs, and he was arrested for a DUI back on August 30. To make matters even worse for Lamar, he and Khloe have been living apart since all these troubles started, and rumors have been swirling that the reality couple are headed for divorce, though nothing has been confirmed.
However, things may be turning around for Lamar, who has said all along that he can stop using anytime he wants, even though he refuses to go to rehab. If sources close to the family are correct, he may be proven right. Lamar and Khloe have had some heart-to-hearts recently, and the basketballer has also been in touch with the Kardashian family. Insiders say that he’s been lucid and appeared to be drug-free during the meetings. And if TMZ is right, it appears Lamar was smart enough to do the same for his meeting with the Lakers yesterday.
So what do you think? Is Lamar getting back on track? What will happen to his marriage and basketball career? And more importantly, will we get to see it all unfold on Keeping Up With the Kardashians? Let us know in the comments!
