Lamar Odom Checks Into Rehab

Posted Wednesday September 4, 2013 9:14 PM GMT

After being arrested for a DUI last week amidst substance abuse reports, Lamar Odom has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Though seemingly on the right track after marrying Khloe Kardashian in 2009, the NBA star violated the league's drug policies twice in eight months in 2001 and spoke of marijuana use in 2003.

To assist him in his legal issues, Lamar hired Robert Kardashian's former partner Robert Shapiro, who dealt with his own son's drug-related death in 2005.

Perhaps the urging of the Kardashian family and his own legal counsel is what finally convinced the 33-year-old athlete to get help.
