Lamar Odom Did Not Go to Rehab, Received Treatment for DUI-Related Issues

Lamar Odom

New report says Khloe Kardashian's husband didn't go to a drug treatment center but received a treatment for issues related to his DUI arrest.

Confusion surrounding Lamar Odom's rumored one-day rehab stint is cleared up. According to Los Angeles Times, the former Lakers and Clippers player who is now a free agent actually hasn't entered any rehab center.

Two people with knowledge of the situation explain that the troubled NBA star did receive a treatment, not for his drug problems, but for issues related to his recent arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Initial report suggested the basketball player checked himself into rehab for his serious case of drug addiction on September 4 and checked out a day later with an assistant. He was later spotted in Los Angeles.

Lamar was pulled over by police on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley on August 30 for driving in a "serpentine manner." He went past three exits before finally pulling over. His driving license was suspended after he refused to take chemical tests to determine his level and type of intoxication.

Lamar's drug problem is to blame for his strained relationship with his wife of four years, Khloe Kardashian. She reportedly had been trying to stage intervention, but to no avail. Though her main focus is getting him help, she reportedly has given him an ultimatum to go to rehab or she would consider divorce.

Lamar's history with drugs dated back in 2001 when he violated NBA drug policies twice in eight months. In 2003, he opened up, "I just couldn't control myself in L.A. ... the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to." His father battled heroin addiction in the past, and he wondered if he was "fighting my father's demons."

He reportedly went to rehab in San Diego in summer 2012, but his stay only lasted for 3 weeks.
