Is it coincidental that all the men, who were in relationships with the Kardashians, ended up having some form of mental breakdown and forced into rehab? In a statement issued by Lamar Odom’s representative, it was revealed that the former NBA star and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian has checked into a rehabilitation center. The news comes just days after Kanye West, the husband of Kim Kardashian, went on an epic rant on stage and canceled his “Saint Pablo” tour.
Later on, police were called to the couple’s mansion, and he was taken to the hospital. Sources claimed that West, who could have harmed himself with a weapon, needed psychiatric treatment. The world has watched as Scott Disick, the father of Kourtney Kardashian’s children, battled alcoholism and overdosed on various episodes of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
Exactly one year ago, Odom was found barely alive after a weekend of binging on alcohol, weed, and cocaine in a brothel in Las Vegas. His estranged wife and her entire family dropped everything that they were working on to be by his side as he laid in a coma for several weeks. Khloe Kardashian made sure she was present as her former lover went through various medical centers to learn how to talk and walk again. Many assumed that the old flames of love between the pair would reignite, and they would get back together. However, that was not the case.
They youngest Kardashian sister dated many men once Odom got back on his feet. Moreover, this week, more than three years after they split, their divorce was made official. It appears that the end of his marriage to Kardashian took a toll on Odom who checked into rehab again. His rep more or less said that he has not yet turned to any illegal substance, but he fears that he might and is taking steps, so that does not occur. A source said: “He wants to stay clear and focused. With the divorce from Khloé being finalized and the holidays coming up, he doesn’t want to slip up. He’s trying to take care of himself. He really wants to be better. His friends and family encouraged him to go in and he agreed and made the decision.”
The reality side of fame is having an impact on this family.
