Lamar Odom‘s raging crack addiction and tendency to drive under the influence will live to see another day, as instead of being forced back to rehab or even sent to jail for any length of time has been passed up in favour of three years of “probation”, which basically means fuck all. It means you got away with it and if you fuck up again, you MAY go to jail but most likely not, you’ll just be given another warning and told that your probation could get taken away one day if you’re not careful. But don’t be careful! Throw caution to the wind and live life! Chances are, you’ll never see the inside of a jail cell – at least not for longer than a few hours.
We broke the story … Odom was arrested in L.A. on August 30 at 3:25 AM after cops saw him driving too slow on the 101 Freeway. He flunked field sobriety tests and refused to submit to a blood alcohol test. He was ultimately charged with one count of DUI.
But today, Lamar struck a deal with prosecutors … and in addition to 3 years of probation, he’s required to complete an alcohol education class by June 9.
He’s also been ordered to pay $1,814 in fines and fees.
Odom’s driver’s license was automatically suspended for one year for refusing to submit to the BAC test — and that punishment will stand.
Oh yes, an “alcohol education class”. I’m sure that’ll go a long way in keeping this from happening repeatedly and will certainly teach a grown man that you don’t take any sort of mind-altering substance before getting behind the wheel of a car. Give me a break.
I’m not saying Lamar deserves to be in jail long term or anything – I think we have much bigger criminal issues and people who should be locked up – but way to show him that there are no consequences behind his actions. I mean, come on – he didn’t even have to fucking show up in court to answer these charges? Is this a joke?

Lamar Odom took off his shirt and turned on a video camera and rapped what was pretty much a confession of cheating on his wife, Khloe Kardashian. He’s mumbling in the video and generally seems like he’s completely f-cked up — but Lamar swears he wasn’t on drugs, just drunk. Right, because that’s the important part. From TMZ:
… [Lamar] he insists he was s**faced drunk, and not cracked out.
Lamar says it was a one time deal and NO drugs were involved — he was specific about 2 drugs he’s had problems with — crack and coke.
Okay, fine. I can believe he was drunk and not high, fine. But what about the whole reason for the video in the first place? What about “being on the DL when Khloe is gone” or however the stupid rap went? What about that?

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have been going to couples therapy, and they’re going to need a lot more after this video in which it appears that Lamar raps about cheating on wife Khloe. Normally I would suggest that this was tongue-in-cheek, but Lamar seems so f-cking out of it that it doesn’t seem like he’s making a cute “screw you” joke. He’s shirtless and with a friend and is slurring. The line in question is when he raps, quietly, at 1:49,
And when Khloe’s out of town, I guess I’ll still be on the DL.
His friend follows up with,
You know what it is. We the QU [Queens] pimps. Ask any of these shorties. We ran through their cribs. Up in them hills, down to the hills, over in East LA, they take us to the jungle and we A-OK.
Here’s the video from TMZ. It looks like it was shot with a calculator.
What a jerk! Crack’s a helluvah drug. No excuse though. He’s gross.

Despite multiple sources indicating earlier this month that a split might be unavoidable, a source confirms to PEOPLE that the pair, who have remained in contact throughout the ordeal, “have been going to therapy together.”
Lamar, 34, who was spotted with the family at Kanye’s West‘s L.A. show just a couple of weeks ago, has also been in therapy himself, as has Khloé, 29. “They’ve also been going separately,” says the source.
Despite Lamar being the one with the crack addiction, it’s very good, smart, and kind of Khloe to go to therapy with him. They say marriage is for better or for worse, and this is definitely the worse. And I think we can all agree out of all the Kardashian couples, this is probably the one most people hate the least. So best of luck to them.
I honestly don’t know what I would do if my husband had a serious drug problem. Good news is I don’t have a husband, so screw you, imaginary douche!

Things have been rather quiet on the Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom front. Last we heard, the pair were concentrating on their “unbreakable” relationship rather than, say, Lamar’s raging crack addiction. Well, now Khloe has broken her silence to let the world know they shouldn’t worry – she’s trying to help him!
Here’s how it went down on Keeping Up with the Kardashians – because how else does his family deal with anything when it’s not televised? (via DS)
“A lot’s been going on in the past couple of years, just with me and Lamar, and I’ve made that choice myself to keep that within my marriage,” she said. “But lately it’s getting bigger than me… Sometimes things are bigger than yourself. I don’t have a plan – I don’t know what the next step is.”
Khloe, who admitted that it is “scary” and “not easy” dealing with these problems with the paparazzi camped outside her house, also admitted that she is struggling to come up with new ideas to help her husband.”What am I supposed to do? I’ve done everything,” she said.
When Rob advised her to “let him figure it out”, she replied: “If someone gets their legs cut off, or you get breast cancer, do you just leave someone because they’re slowing down your life? I’m trying to help and save him.”Rob pointed out that Odom is “really hurting” his sister, saying in private that he hates seeing Khloe “hurt” and is sad to see his “best friend” and “brother” going through a “really dark period”.
Well, here’s something Khloe needs to understand. Yes, you stand by someone when they are going through something difficult. But getting diagnosed with cancer – which quite often is NOT PREVENTABLE – is quite different than watching someone repeatedly choose to pick up a crack pipe and smoke it. Sorry, I know that a lot of people will argue about the psychological facts of addiction, but people CAN beat it… if they want to. And if they don’t? Then you’re going to ruin your life at the same time as sitting around watching them ruin their own.
