Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, Lamar Odom, entered a rehab facility this week in Southern California and, according to a source close to the 32-year-old Keeping up with the Kardashians star, his drug abuse spiraled out of control because of her.
Khloe filed for a divorce in 2013, when rumors about him abusing different substances but also cheating on her surfaced. “At times, Khloe has seemed to want to keep Lamar hanging on, but everyone around her tells her that it is just not fair to let him think that there is still a chance that the two of them will reconcile. Her sisters tell her that she needs to let it go and let Lamar live his own life,” shared a source close to the Kardashians.
Khloe started dating Tristan Thompson after they broke up, and now that the divorce has gotten officially finalized last week, their marriage is completely over. However, it looks like “Khloe and Tristan dating really seemed to send Lamar over the edge.”
“The holidays are particularly hard for him this year. His divorce is official and he’s not dating, so it’s easy for him to over-do it with the partying without anything keeping him in check,” added another insider.
“His plan to go to rehab was partly facilitated by his ex, Liza Morales, after talking over the past couple weeks. He’s been really trying to be there more for his kids, so everyone’s excited he is taking this step, and right before the holidays too.”
“He has been using though. This isn’t just a check in to maintain sobriety.”
“Lamar has not maintained sobriety for more than a month since he was hospitalized for his overdose. He still smokes weed nearly every single day!”
This is particularly worrisome considering Lamar overdosed in 2015 and although chances were small, he managed to make a full recovery. He maybe should be thankful to be alive and change his ways.
