We haven’t reported on it much, but there are some pretty unpleasant reports about NBA baller Lamar Odom. In short, outlets have claimed that Khloe Kardashian’s hubby is battling a drug addiction. According to TMZ, the reason that their marriage is on the rocks, is because his struggle with drugs. The site reports:
Lamar has had a problem for 2 years. It got so bad, last August Khloe pressured Lamar to go to rehab. Lamar went to a facility in San Diego, but he was so resistant Khloe hired private investigators to secretly stand guard at the rehab place to make sure he didn’t leave. The P.I.s stood guard 24/7. Our sources say Lamar constantly threatened to leave and Khloe made several visits to prevail upon him to stay. We’re told after 3 weeks, Lamar left for good. We’re told Lamar actually stayed clean once he left rehab and was able to play well for the Clippers this past season. But when the season was over, sources say Lamar slipped deep back into hardcore recreational drugs. As for reports that Lamar was cheating recently, we’re told Khloe is convinced it happened, and she feels she’s been hit with a double whammy … but drugs are the main problem. We’re told the situation has become dire. Sources tell us … within the last 2 days, the entire family staged an intervention, trying to convince Lamar to go back to rehab, but he wouldn’t have any of it.
Meanwhile, Radar Online reports that Lamar’s drug of choice was OxyContin and Ambien. No official statement from Lamar, but Khloe is pissed, tweeting:
Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk sh*t about my family! F*ck you and shame on you! I’m too protective for this sh*t!
