Lamar Odom Struggling With Drug Problems
The off the court problems for Lamar Odom continue. According to TMZ, Odom has been struggling with drug problems for the past two years, which may explain why he’s been so unproductive. While other athletes may be taking drugs to help them with their performance, Odom has been taking the kind of drugs that have been hurting his performance. And sadly now, his marriage with Khloe Kardashian is in jeopardy as well.
According to TMZ, “The marriage of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom is in crisis, and TMZ has learned … the core reason is hardcore drug abuse. Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … Lamar has had a problem for 2 years. It got so bad, last August Khloe pressured Lamar to go to rehab. Lamar went to a facility in San Diego, but he was so resistant Khloe hired private investigators to secretly stand guard at the rehab place to make sure he didn’t leave. The P.I.s stood guard 24/7. We’re told the situation has become dire. Sources tell us … within the last 2 days, the entire family staged an intervention, trying to convince Lamar to go back to rehab, but he wouldn’t have any of it.”
The Los Angeles Clippers were rumored to be the latest team interested in Lamar Odom, but their interest in him quickly waned for unknown reasons, but it is most likely due to his drug problems. If Odom doesn’t get his act together soon, his marriage and his playing days in the NBA may soon be over.
