Odom ‘not in rehab’

Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom has not checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, according to a new report.

The 33-year-old professional basketball player, who is married to Khloé Kardashian, was said to have checked himself into treatment Wednesday after he “realized he needs help” for problems with Oxycontin and Ambien, according to People magazine.

TMZ claims it has now received “definitive word” the athlete is not in rehab but has instead cut off contact with his reality star wife.

“Lamar has gone off the radar with the Kardashian family for the last few days,” the website claims.

“Khloé – who has made it clear she will end the marriage if he doesn’t get help – has heard nothing from him.”

A spokesperson for Lamar has not publicly commented on his alleged addictions or marital strife.

The couple, who married in 2009, are thought to be temporarily separated following allegations of Lamar’s infidelity.

The rehab rumors come just days after Lamar was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles after reportedly failing a field sobriety test.

Radar Online claims the athlete was bailed out of jail by his drug dealer after the incident last Friday.

“Khloé found [out] about his arrest by reading about it in the press, and was stunned,” a purported insider said, adding Lamar “has been hanging around a very bad crew recently, mostly his drug dealer and various sketchy associates”.

He is expected to be formally charged with suspicion of DUI within the next week.
