We have sad news to report this evening. Lamar Odom has reportedly left rehab after just one day.
Lamar first entered rehab on Wednesday afternoon and sources tell People magazine that he checked back out after less than 24 hours. Sources say an assistant picked him up this morning and later in the day he was spotted in L.A.
The sometimes reality star seems to have grown up a bit in the last few years, and I have a soft spot for him solely because he seems to be the only one in the Kardashian/Jenner brood who seems to see Kris Jenner for the pimpmomager she is. Of course, instead of picking up the phone, he's chatting with a tabloid, but, hey, it's Hollywood. Apparently, this is how famous people do things.
In the wee hours of Friday morning Lamar was popped at 3:54 am in San Fernando Valley by the California Highway Patrol. Lamar was spotted on the 101 freeway driving in a "serpentine manner" and going too slow (only 50 MPH) when police pulled him over.
Apparently he ignored the police car's flashing sirens and drove three exits before finally pulling over. Police observed "objective signs of intoxication" and Lamar failed "numerous" field sobriety tests before being taken to the station.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! <–That's not just ALL CAPS, folks. That is a legitimate scream. If that scream was in a movie, it would be the desperate cry of someone who had just fallen off the world's largest cliff, and it would be loud enough to start an avalanche on a neighboring continent. It would only be slightly less dramatic than Sally Field realizing she had eighteen personalities, her daughter was trapped in a Middle Eastern custody dispute, and her ex-husband was dressing in drag as the nanny…all at the same time. It's a true scream. But why?
Kris flippin' Jenner. That's why. Remember when rumors seemed so true that her talk show was cancelled and the world rejoiced? Yeah, me too…and I'm not even home during the day to defiantly not watch it. It looks like that call may have been premature. Thanks a lot, tiny rapper.
The kraziness surrounding Lamar Odom'sdrug addiction rumors kontinues, and TMZ is determined to keep saying he's a major krack addict. While other sources are claiming that Lamar's battle is over prescription pills, no matter what you read or where you look, the reports are all konflicting!
In addition to the new substance abuse allegations, the big question is will Khloe Kardashian stand by her man? She's always seemed head-over-heels for her NBA star husband, and I think regardless of what happens in their marriage, she will do everything in her power to make sure he gets the help he needs. Again, depending on which "source" or "family insider" you believe, the couple is either working it out or hiring divorce lawyers.
I don't consider myself naive usually. Sure, I have my blonde moments, but I have to say I am disappointed in myself that it never crossed my mind that the Kardashian kover-up krew could be perpetuating the rumors of Lamar Odom'sdrug abuse.
Now, don't get me wrong, I wasn't born yesterday. Lamar is no angel (I'm assuming he does suffer from addiction and a penchant for bedding women who aren't his wife), but it's the deluge in which the gossip is coming that sounds a lot like Kris Jenner is trying to make him seem like a total asshat. If he does have serious problems, he needs help, not a public shaming…although we all seem to be hoping it works for Miley. She can't be tamed, though.
Radar sources share that Lamar “absolutely believes Khloe’s family has been leaking stories to the tabloid press about his drug use, and his trip to rehab last year. Khloe has been very private about Lamar’s drug addiction, as she had done for the past year."
As with all celebrity rumors, where there is smoke, there's usually fire. At least that seems to be the case when it comes to the gossip surrounding the demise of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's marriage.
Some super classy ladies have been coming out of the woodwork and selling sharing stories of their affairs with the married NBA player. Now, it seems that Khloe has kicked Lamar out of their home…and not just because of the infidelity, but because of the drug abuse she is convinced led him down that path.
