Lamar Odom reportedly not in rehab


There were reports that Lamar Odom had checked himself into rehab at the urging of friends and family. Now there are reports that say Odom has in fact not checked himself into rehab. The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly offered Lamar Odom a roster spot if he’d seek treatment and check himself into rehab.

From TMZ:

Lamar Odom has NOT checked himself in to rehab … sources connected to the NBAer tell TMZ.

There are reports out that Lamar checked himself in … we’ve been making calls for the last day and just got what we’re told is the definitive word … he’s not there.

Lamar has gone off the radar with the Kardashian family for the last few days.  Khloe – who has made it clear she will end the marriage if he doesn’t get help — has heard nothing from him.

This comes on the heels of a report that it was Odom’s drug dealer who bailed him out of jail after being arrested on suspicion of DUI. A missing Lamar Odom is a bad sign and scary when it comes to drug users. It is also a clearer sign that Odom needs to seek help.

Hopefully Odom will accept the help his family and friends are offering him.

    Damn Lamar, stop smoking that crack!!! You are a top NBA 6th man in History. Hope he has a savings account separate from the 50k he spent on crack the last 2 years. Read an article he was lit up last season at clipps at NY (his hometown) and he put up 2 points, 7 boards, and 4 assists in 18 minutes. Not bad on crack. Imagine him sober. Bah!
