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.
Shortly before Lamar Odom was busted for drunken driving Friday morning (August 30), TMZ reports the basketball player was visited by drug counselors from the NBA –in an attempt to help him.
Khloé Kardashian Odom's husband had his driver's license suspended for one year following his DUI arrest on a Los Angeles freeway, E! News has confirmed. A city spokesman explained that Odom doesn’t have a current license, and that he’ll have to take a written test to reapply—in one year.
According to an E! News source, "Lamar was never missing. He has been with Khloé." Though some claimed that divorce was imminent, the insider insists, "They have never spoken to a divorce attorney. Right now the family is focused on getting Lamar better."
It’s no secret that he’s going through a tough time as of late, and Lamar Odom has been the target of all kinds of crazy rumors.
According to RadarOnline.com, the NBA stud suspects that his wife Khloe Kardashian's kinfolk are responsible for the deluge of damaging stories regarding his alleged drug use, though he doesn’t blame Khloe herself.
Khloe Kardashian is sick and tired of the publicity surrounding her marriage to Lamar Odom. After multiple sources state that the couple is headed to divorce court, the "Keeping up with the Kardashians" beauty took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the allegations.
“Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s**t about my family! F**k you and shame on you! I’m too protective for this s**t!” Khloe shared on Sunday (August 25).
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.
