Luggage is loaded into Lamar Odom's  car amid reports of marriage split

Wendy Williams has always been up front with both her fans (both in the radio and TV world) about her struggle with addiction. In fact, a few days after the death of late Whitney Houston, an emotional tearful Wendy told viewers:

Whitney and I, same age, and both plagued with the demon of substance abuse. It’s been almost 15 years since I smoked last from a crack pipe. It’s been almost 15 years since I waited on Jerome Avenue on the Bronx for my drugs.


And once again, she proves that she’s sympathetic to the struggle of Lamar Odom. On twitter, she recounted meeting the NBA baller in Los Angeles.





I met @RealLamarOdom one time, when my husband and I were shopping in LA. He was in the store too. After he left, he called in his credit card to pay for our stuff. I only know his kindness and share his struggle w/substance abuse. My thoughts r with u both Lamar & @KhloeKardashian. xo ww

So what’s the latest with the 33-year-old estranged husband to Khloe Kardashian? Reportedly, early Friday morning, he was taken into custody on $15,000 bail, after being pulled over on the 101 freeway and given a field sobriety test, which he was unable to complete. E! reports that he then refused a chemical test and was arrested

for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs

without further incident. He was released from a Van Nuys area jail at 8:33 a.m. this morning. What’s more? The site reports that divorce rumors between the couple are untrue. A source reports:





He has been with Khloé. They have never spoken to a divorce attorney.

This never-ending story continues.
