TMZ is reporting that Lamar Odom is a “hardcore recreational drug user” , which is leading to turmoil in his highly publicized marriage to Khloe Kardashian. The 33-year-old NBA player has battled drug addiction for two years, and it reached the point last summer where she pressured him to go to rehab.
According to the shocking claims brought forth by TMZ, Lamar has already been to treatment once last August in a San Diego rehab facility, which he left after three weeks. While Lamar reportedly stayed clean throughout the 2012-2013 basketball season, he allegedly resumed his drug use once the Clippers’ postseason was finished.
The TMZ source goes on to confirm that, while Khloe believes there have also been infidelities, it’s Lamar’s drug use that has most heavily factored into their recent problems. “Khloe is more concerned about saving Lamar than ending her marriage,” one source told the website. In fact, the family reportedly went so far as to stage an intervention in an attempt to save Lamar.
Whether a publicity stunt or bona fide intentions, apparently the Kardashians staged an intervention last week, trying to convince Lamar to get back to rehab and seek badly needed help.
