Lamar Odom Is Safe In Rehab — Does Khloe Know?

Lamar Odom is nice and safe in rehab, after a pretty tumultuous 2 weeks. He went on a bender, got into a minor car accident, and then a few days later got arrested for driving under the influence. If the only good thing that happened to you all week was that you got Taco Bell, you’re not having the best week. I would say that going into rehab is a good choice. From Starpulse:

“He realized he needs help,” said one of two sources who confirmed the news to People magazine on Wednesday.

Odom has been urged by wife Khloe Kardashian to check in to rehab following reports of his infidelity and that he’s addicted to crack cocaine.

[...] Following Friday’s DUI arrest, Kardashian gave Odom an ultimatum, telling him he wasn’t welcome to come home until he completes rehab.

Except that TMZ is claiming Khloe had no idea he went to rehab:

Sources close to the couple tell us Khloe never got so much as a heads-up about Lamar’s plans, and was completely blindsided by the report he’s checked in for treatment.

We’re told one big reason for that is Khloe and Lamar have not been talking at all since she issued an ultimatum last weekend — get help or our marriage is over — intending to force his hand on the issue of rehab.

Well as long as he’s in rehab, I guess that’s the most important thing?

Lamar Odom Was In A Bizarre Car Accident Before DUI

Lamar Odom is not having the best week ever. Amid his substance abuse problems, he was arrested for driving under the influence. But apparently, this isn’t even his first car incident of the week. A few days before the DUI charge, he was in a minor accident, coincidentally on the same freeway he was pulled over on for said DUI. While the accident was minor, Odom’s behavior made it bizarre.

From The L.A. Times:

The crash was not reported to authorities, but Los Angeles Times reporter Adolfo Flores said his car was rear-ended by another vehicle hit by Odom’s white Mercedes on Saturday.

Flores said he got out of his car after the crash to exchange insurance information with the other drivers. When he asked Odom for his information, he said, the 6-foot-10 forward — who most recently played with the Clippers and is now a free agent — asked why he needed it. Flores said he told Odom he needed the information because they were in a car accident, to which Odom replied: “It doesn’t even look that bad.”

[...]

After Flores finished obtaining information from Odom’s insurance form, he said he tried to hand it back to the basketball player three times, but he wouldn’t take it. Flores said he then asked if Odom wanted him to keep the document.

“No, I need it to drive,” Odom said, before finally taking the form, Flores recalled.

After exchanging their information, the three drivers went on their separate ways. The third driver could not be reached for comment.

BTW about that DUI, Odom’s license will be suspended for a year, all because he refused to do the “chemical tests” after he was arrested. According to his arresting officer, Odom did “the one thing you should never not do: refuse the chemical tests.” Wait what?

Damn, Lamar. Time for more Taco Bell. Maybe have someone else drive.
