PEOPLE is reporting that troubled, pro baller Lamar Odom has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.
“He realized he needs help,” a source says of the NBA free agent and husband of reality star Khloé Kardashian Odom.
Apparently Odom is facing reality and dealing with their situation because it’s affected his marriage
Late last week, Odom was arrested for DUI.
Odom, 32, is a past abuser of drugs. He violated NBA drug policies twice in eight months back in 2001, and spoke in 2003 of his marijuana use.
“I just couldn’t control myself in L.A. … the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to,” he said then.
Lamar’s drug problem seems to run in the family, unfortunately. His father struggled with heroin addiction, and Lamar said once that he thought he was “fighting my father’s demons.”
