Khloe Kardashian Reportedly Wants Lamar Odom To Head For Rehab
Khloe Kardashian is extremely upset with Lamar Odom after photos of him in a bar surfaced on TMZ. She's urging Odom to go to rehab and would even settle for an outpatient program.
Odom is not about it. He reportedly think's he's capable of drinking in moderation.
Sources tell TMZ that Khloe's doing everything in her power to convince her husband to get treatment for his apparent addiction problems. While Odom's fine with regularly attending a physical rehab program, he refuses to deal with his substance abuse issues.
Khloe's not the only one. TMZ reports that nobody close to Odom believes he can carry on as a casual drinker.
Odom's own family members agree that rehab is a good idea due to the cycle of abuse in his family. Odom's father and several other family members have addiction issues. His children, Destiny and Lamar Odom Jr., are worried he will fall out of their lives now that he's drinking again.
Khloe's apparently telling friends and family she will eventually have to stop trying to help Odom.
The former Los Angeles Laker successfully completed a rehab program in 2013 after he was arrested for a DUI.
Odom violated NBA drug policies twice back in 2001. He holds the NBA lifestyle in Los Angeles responsible. "I just couldn't control myself in L.A. … the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to," he said.
However, even though Khloe pressured him to go to rehab then, Odom reportedly only went because of his desire to play in the NBA.
