- Twitter: Khloe and Lamar
New reports are indicating that Lamar Odom will check into rehab in the coming days as he attempts to save his marriage and possibly make a NBA comeback.
The 33-year-old basketball star has reportedly paid for a three-month stay at a rehabilitation facility in Malibu, Calif., leading to speculation that Odom is serious about addressing his alleged drug abuse, according to a report by Hollywood Life.
This latest development is the result of alleged drug abuse by Odom dating back at least a year. Khloe looks like she was also kept in the dark regarding Odom's alleged drug use after a recent report surfaced revealing that Khloe's brother, Rob, knew about his brother-in-law's struggles.
"[He has] known about Lamar's drug addiction for over a year. How could he not as he has lived under the same roof with Lamar and Khloe? Rob even spent a significant amount of time with Khloe and Lamar when he was traded to the Dallas Mavericks," a family insider told Radar Online of the rumors.
Unconfirmed reports have stated that Odom has been allegedly addicted to the painkiller OxyContin and sleeping agent Ambien for at least a year.
"Rob isn't a party animal like Lamar, and drugs just aren't his scene. The two used to be very close, but have drifted apart because Lamar has been abusing Oxy and cheating on Khloe. Rob has continued to live at the Tarzana mansion to support Khloe, he really has her back," the source told Radar.
Sources close to the family reveal Jenner has been "acting as the de facto marriage counselor and mediator between Lamar and Khloe," according to RadarOnline.com.
While the celebrity couple has had a difficult past couple of months, Kris is supporting Khloe while advising her to fight for her marriage.
"She is encouraging Khloe not to give up on her marriage and not file for divorce … Khloe hasn't been able to forgive him yet, but a divorce likely won't happen," the insider added.
