Lamar Odom has checked himself into a rehab facility, following his arrest for driving under the influence.
The professional basketball player made a smart move, surely realizing his marriage and career could be over if he didn’t get help.
The drama began when two women came forward claiming he had affairs with them while married to wife Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe reportedly kicked him out after giving him an ultimatum to seek help for his issues.
Lamar Odom was said to be “missing” for several days afterwards, with friends and family worried he was holed up somewhere doing drugs.
Lamar’s alleged drug dealer has come forward claiming he spent $50,000 on cocaine in three years.
The New York-based dealer said he witnessed the former Los Angeles Clippers basketball player consume the illegal drug on as many as 10 occasions since 2010 when Lamar visited Queens in New York.
In a video interview with Radar, the dealer said, “[Lamar has a] huge problem and he has a very addictive personality. It is becoming worse as you can see.
“He [Lamar] likes to party, He’s a pretty nice guy to be honest with you, but he’s becoming … his problem seems to be becoming a bigger problem. In my experience, he literally likes cocaine. He is a cocaine guy. He likes to smoke it.”
The drug dealer even claims Lamar freebased cocaine before a game between the LA Clippers and the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on February 10 this year.
He revealed, “I know it for a fact because I sold him the stuff and saw him smoke it, he spent about 16 grand. Quantity wise, it was a little under half a kilo”.
Lamar’s father was a heroin addict and his mother died of colon cancer when he was just 12-years-old, leaving him to be raised by his grandmother Mildred.
Rumors began swirling about Lamar Odom’s drug use just before he was arrested for driving under the influence at around 3:30 a.m. last Friday.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated Lamar showed “objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated.”.
He was booked into Van Nuys jail before posting $15,000 bail and being released.
