Lamar Joseph Odom (born November 6, 1979) is an American professional basketball forward, who is currently playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. Lamar recently married Khloe Kardashian joining the ranks of athletes hooking up with reality starlets.
Could drug abuse be unraveling the marriage of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom? TMZ is reporting that Odom’s been struggling to stay straight for at least two years.
The situation became so bad that, according to sources, Khloe pressured Lamar to go to rehab last August. He reluctantly went to a facility in San Diego, and Khloe hired private investigators to secretly stand guard at the center 24 hours a day to make sure he didn't check out prematurely. Still, he reportedly left after just three weeks.
She’s been busy promoting her new “Kris” talk show, and Kris Jenner came to her son-in-law Lamar Odom's defense during her interview on the Scott & Todd morning radio show.
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” mastermind noted that the NBA star is “the greatest guy in the world,” while also maintaining that he really doesn’t lose his cool very often. So when a paparazzo continually badgered Odom to the point that he flipped out, Kris knew something was up.
