Report: Lamar Odom abusing hardcore drugs
TMZ reports that Odom has had a drug problem for two years. The outlet says Odom’s drug problem got so bad last year, Khloe pressured him to go to rehab. She reportedly had private investigators stand security outside the facility to make sure he didn’t leave. Odom supposedly left rehab after three weeks last August and has not been back.
According to the report, Odom stayed clean last NBA season, which he spent with the Los Angeles Clippers. After the season ended, he reportedly began using hardcore recreational drugs again.

Not only is Kardashian worried about Odom’s supposed drug problem, but she also reportedly believes the rumors that he is cheating on her. Odom and Kardashian’s marital problems have been the subject of gossip reports since early last year. A March 2012 report stated that Odom and Kardashian were “facing the end” in their relationship. The two married in Sept. 2009 after briefly dating. Though they have not divorced, recent reports have said Kardashian kicked her husband out of the house, and that Odom has been cheating.
Despite her cheating concerns, Khloe supposedly is more worried about getting Lamar drug-free than straightening out the cheating situation. The family supposedly held an intervention in recent days to ask Odom to go back to rehab, but it didn’t work. TMZ says he moved out after that.
If Odom has been abusing drugs for two years, that could help explain his unbelievably poor season with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011-2012. The report could also help explain Odom’s erratic behavior towards a photographer, whose equipment he smashed in July.
Odom is currently a free agent.
